Thompson Twins – The Artists
Thompson Twins were a British pop band that formed in 1977. Initially a new wave group, they switched to a more mainstream pop sound and achieved considerable popularity from 1983, scoring a string of hits in the United Kingdom, the United States, and around the world. In 1993, they changed their name to Babble, to reflect their change in music from new wave to dub-influenced chill-out. They continued as Babble to 1996, at which point the group permanently dissolved. The original line up consisted of; Tom Bailey – bass, keyboards, vocals, Pete Dodd – guitar, vocals, John Podgorski – drums and John Roog – guitar. Their line-up changed through the years but during their most commercial successful years between 1982 and 1986 the band was a trio and consisted of; Tom Bailey – bass, guitar, keyboards, vocal, Joe Leeway – congas, percussion, keyboards, vocals and Alannah Currie – drums, percussion, vocals. The band was named after the two bumbling detectives Thomson and Thompson in Hergé’s comic strip The Adventures of Tintin. At various stages, the band had up to seven members, but their most known incarnation was as a trio between 1982 and 1986.
Doctor! Doctor! – The Song

Doctor!” was released in the UK in 1984 as the album’s second single.
Heart with a Beat – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a heart with a heart beat running though it as if viewed on a electrocardiogram. Electrocardiography is the process of producing an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG[a]). It is a graph of voltage versus time of the electrical activity of the heart using electrodes placed on the skin. These electrodes detect the small electrical changes that are a consequence of cardiac muscle depolarisation followed by repolarisation during each cardiac cycle (heartbeat).
