  1. I love Strange Advance. One of the greatest Canadian new wave offerings. Thanks for posting as I had been trying to track down 'Sister Radio' for quite some time. This is also one of my all time favorite album covers and this is a really good image of it too! I recently got into contact with a PR agent of the band who said they were currently recording new material so fingers crossed!

    1. Hi, Do you have any information on the 'Strange Advance' support gigs for Kajagoogoo in Europe in the summer of 1983? I would be really grateful if you could help? Please email at if you have any info :)

    2. I can't say that I have any information regarding your request. Perhaps other readers will have what you seek. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for your interest & comment! All my artwork is reworked through photoshop/paint, for a better image than most. New material from them would be nice.

  3. Is there any possibility this album could be re-upped?
    It would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks so much,

  4. Awesome!!
    Thanks, I used to have all their albums on vinyl and saw them in concert a couple times, back in the day.
    Great site, and thanks again!!

  5. Thanks for taking the time to comment! I knew about the group when this LP came out, after that, I never heard from them again. I'm certain it was due to the awful radio stations I was surrounded with. Thankfully MTV, Friday Night Videos, etc... were a massive help around this time!

  6. Their 2nd album is equally as amazing, but their 3rd (last) album sounded a lot more pop/rock-oriented, less dance/synth-pop. None-the-less, one of my favourite Canadian New Wave bands from that era.
    Thanks for the memories,
