Red Guitars' first album was typical of much British rock of the early to mid-'80s in its drift from new wave to something a little more mainstream. There were rather generic new wavepop concoctions with diffident vocals, echoed guitars, and a muted and stylish kind of moodiness. The lyrical perspectives honed in on the space between diffidence and despair. Album 1983 15 Songs. 2007 The Red Guitars. You May Also Like. Shop Assistants Anthology 1985-1986. Shop Assistants.

It reached number 3 in the UK Indie Chart, entering the chart in November 1984 and staying on the chart for six months. The album included the single Marimba Jive, which topped the Indie Chart. The album was noted for its polish and originality, and was described as a bit of a classic by Dave Henderson, writing in Sounds, but Kidd was to leave the band two months.

Like the singles which proceeded it Slow To Fade was recorded at Fairview Studios in Willerby. The band had demoed a couple of tracks at Matrix in London with John Porter who produced the first Smiths album. Martix was a good studio with an old Neve desk for tracking and an automated SSL desk for mixing, plus it was next door to Pizza Express, but the recordings didn't work out so it was back to Hull and engineer, co-producer Roy Neave.
The session ran from Wednesday the 4th July to Friday 14th September, interrupted by the recording of a second Peel session on Saturday the 14th July at Maida Vale, and the band clocked up 485½ hours studio time at a cost of just over £6,000. Tony K who ran our distributors, Red Rhino in York, paid for the whole album as an advance against sales and without him it could never have been made. Sadly Tony passed away in 2008, he was a great friend and mentor to the band.
A tip of the hat is also due to Danny Wood who played the Hammond organ parts impeccably and usually in one take and Grant Ardis for extra percussion. Grant was the drummer in Tony Menzies' My Silent War and later joined Hal and Lou in Planet Wilson.
The album was mixed over 10 days at Music Works Studios in London, with Roy Neave and in-house engineer Neil Drake, and mastered at Virgin's Townhouse Studios on Wednesday the 3rd of October. It was released at the beginning of November 1984 with the catalogue number SCAR LP1.
