Actually... 52nd Street's first single was "Look Into My
Eyes"/"Express", on Factory. "Cool As Ice" was the next single. Produced
by Donald Johnson from ACR. I think it was somebody other than Diane
Charlemagne on vocals on the first one...

heh heh did you know she is also the vocalist for urban cookie
as well a 80's uk funk / soul outfit 52nd St who released some really
stuff - their 1st single "cool as ice" is pretty funky - co-produced by
New Order's Barney Sumner - sorta latin / electro sounding. their 1st lp
"children of the night" still sounds pretty good if you like that loose
ends sorta feel.
