Rhythm And Faith - Time To Run 12"
Sole release of Rhythm And Faith, issued on Future Records in 1983.
Rhythm And Faith's origins lie in Italy as two members of postpunk band Style Syndrome moved to the UK to form a new band. Both Anna and Stefano felt that Style Syndrome was getting nowhere in their homeland so they decided to move to the UK to get more recognition. Not that this helped a lot as I don't think Rhythm And Faith lasted for a long time. To be honest, I don't think that the UK was waiting for another Siouxsie & The Banshees as the songs of Rhythm And Faith remind me a lot of them.
On this 12" they had the help of Rab, drummer of punk band The Wall.
Style Syndrome never officially released anything back in the day (except contributing a track to the 'Gathered' comp.), but there's an album of remastered demo tape recordings released in 2012 on Synthetic Shadows (vinyl) and Infrastition (CD).
