ABC

SKYSCRAPING

1LP
IN

After five years of radio silence, Martin Fry regrouped his group ABC in 1997 for the successful comeback album Skyscraping. On Skyscraping, Martin Fry has a dream collaboration with another hero of early 80s pop music: Glenn Gregory of Heaven 17. The result is a wonderful return to the glory days of ABC, but this time with half an eye on the new millennium. The album spawned three singles, all of which reached the UK Singles Chart, and brought the band back into the public eye.

After five years of radio silence, Martin Fry regrouped his group ABC in 1997 for the successful comeback album Skyscraping. After a break with more dance-pop oriented albums, the band returned to the beloved and catchy sound of perhaps the ultimate new romantic pop album, The Lexicon of Love.

On Skyscraping, Martin Fry has a dream collaboration with another hero of early 80s pop music: Glenn Gregory of Heaven 17. The result is a wonderful return to the glory days of ABC, but this time with half an eye on the new millennium.
