GONNA SAY YES
Karu was a three piece band formed in 1983 out of the messy breakup of the Bay City Rollers by Duncan Faure (former vocalist of the South African band Rabbitt as well as the front man for the 1978 incarnation of the Rollers.) Drummer Richie Hall and original Roller Stuart Wood. The group released one single, L.A. Girl b/w Gonna Say Yes and and LP Karu Cuts, both on the Teichiku Overseas label and available only in Japan. Another South African only 45 Where is the music b/w I remember was issued the same year on the Principal label. Both tracks on this single are well crafted guitar driven powerpop tunes and a total must for any BCR fan. The band broke up in 1984 and their records are extremely hard to track down nowadays. If anyone out there has the other single or the LP I'd really love to hear them.
