Hopelessly out-of-touch and past her prime, Grogan takes on a more mature and sophisticated pose (as revealed on the album cover) and takes a stab at dance-pop. The results, predictably, are mostly uninteresting with the exception of the single "Don't Talk to Me About Love," a .

Altered Images formed in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1979, with founding members Clare Grogan (vocals), Gerard Caesar McInulty (guitar), Johnny McElhone (bass), Tony McDaid (guitar), and Michael "Tich" Anderson (drums). In 1980 Clare appeared in Bill Forsyth's film Gregory's Girl which helped to bring attention to the band, and after sending a demo to Siouxsie & The Banshees they secured an opening slot for their 1980 tour.

Redirected from Tony McDaid). Altered Images were an early 1980s Scottish new wave/post-punk band. Fronted by singer Clare Grogan, the band branched into mainstream pop music, having six UK Top 40 hit singles and three Top 30 albums between 1981 and 1983. Their hits included "Happy Birthday", "I Could Be Happy", "See Those Eyes" and "Don't Talk to Me About Love".

Not that this meant they still were,nt fun to listen to or lost their instinctive knack for a good melody, indeed Bite includes the most sumptuous pop moments of their career. Which makes it a tremendous shame that this expanded version is,nt re-mastered like the Japanese release and more importantly takes gratuitous liberties with the versions off the original vinyl version. Bite was a response to critics who had slammed Altered Images on their previous album, Pinky Blue. The results are very mixed.

there is a pink triangle sticker instead of regular OBI on the front cover for this JPN version

To add on further, the "original" 12" mix of "Don't Talk To Me About Love" runs for about 8mins and 30 sec.Have no idea, why they would take an edit of the 12" version of the track and issue it all over the place on so many 80's compilations and even on several Altered Images collections and even on the re-issue of "Bite". Shame....Won't it be really nice to have the original LP remastered and issued with the correct track listing and appended with all the versions and remixes after the original track listing and call it a day?

Thank you for the update! Appreciate much. I actually have the original UK press album and the singles on 12" and some on 7", but for the ease of listening, I was really hoping that they would bother to remaster the material properly with the correct versions represented definitively. If the powers that listening or reading, do please reissue the correctly remastered versions of Altered Images original 3 Lps along with all their original single versions and b-sides on CD once and for all? Will it kill you? Pray tell?

I believe you finally got your wish.. there's a new 2x12" reissue from vinyl 180 (VIN180LP118) coming out in a week or two and it looks like your above concerns have been addressed.

The last Altered Images album moves away from twee pop with bitter lyrics into "sophisticated" disco territory and faux-Blondie - with less interesting lyrics. Half of these tunes were pop rock confections produced by Mike Chapman of Blondie fame and don't sound a million miles away from them - except for Clare Grogan's vocals, of course! The rest of these tunes are given a string-laden Tony Visconti production that seem a better fit for another band. The single "Don't Talk To Me About Love" is a winner but the preponderence of slick backing vocals throughout seems all too calculated an attempt to gloss over Ms. Grogan's, shall we say, vocal idiosyncracies? A record this schizophrenic in sound doesn't surprise when it's the last one a band issues.http://postpunkmonk.wordpress.comFor more ruminations on the Fresh New Sound Of Yesterday
