Wow, time flies, even when you’re not having any fun! Gyllene’s premiere single on EMI Parlophone turns 38 years old today…
The most interesting part about this is that Teaser Japanese was released the week before, but Break Another Heart and Run Run Run weren’t released until Feb ’84. Gyllene brought some friends along: Janne Bark guitar, Pelle Alsing (?) extra drums, an unidentified string keyboardist, Marie Fredriksson, Mia Lindgren and Anne-Lie Rydé on backing vocals.
Gyllene Tider will sponsor Drott’s female handball team the next season.
