An individual, limited edition, example of vinyl art made from a genuine, original, 45rpm, 7” single featuring the  single, Cruel Summer by Bananarama. The record was released in 1983, on the London record label and has been reworked into a Coronavirus Cell. Obviously, this is a tongue-in-cheek take on our normal vinyl art and is primarily designed to lift everyones spirits during this unprecedented time and who had their summer ruined due to lockdown restrictions.

A great framed gift for a friend or family member who is a fan of Bananarama, 80s Pop, Summer holidays or has a special memory linked to the song.

Bananarama – The Artist

Bananarama are an English pop girl group formed in London in 1979 by friends Sara Dallin, Siobhan Fahey and Keren Woodward. Their success on both pop and dance charts saw them listed in the Guinness World Records for achieving the world’s highest number of chart entries by an all-female group. Between 1982 and 2009, they had 28 singles reach the Top 50 of the UK Singles Chart. The group’s 10 UK Top 10 hits include “It Ain’t What You Do…” (1982), “Really Saying Something” (1982), “Shy Boy” (1982), “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” (1983), “Cruel Summer” (1983), “Robert De Niro’s Waiting…” (1984) and “Love in the First Degree” (1987). 

Cruel Summer – The Song

‘Cruel Summer’ is a song recorded by the English girl group Bananarama. It was written by Steve Jolley, Tony Swain and Bananarama and produced by Swain and Jolley. Released as a single in 1983, it was initially a stand-alone single but was subsequently included on their self-titled second album which was released a year later, thus it is considered the album’s first single. The song reached number eight on the UK Singles Chart in 1983, and after its inclusion in the 1984 film The Karate Kid it reached number nine on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Bananarama singer Sara Dallin said the song “played on the darker side (of summer songs): it looked at the oppressive heat, the misery of wanting to be with someone as the summer ticked by.
