The Killers - Killer (On The Dance Floor) 1978

b/w -No Surrender

Here's some nice glam/rock/pop from the boys, who penned Video killed the radio star (Made famous by Trevor Horn's later incarnation the buggles
BTW there is also a lesser known {in the UK} version by Bruce Wooley & the Camera Club)

The London based studio only group were
Bruce Woolley (voc guitar)
Trevor Horn (bass keyboards)
Rod Thompson (keyboards)

I have to admit that, I'm posting this so you can compare it to my next post........

Sounds & scans below



  1. I'm suspecting that you're going to post Jim Penfold's The Speedos cover of ''Killer on the dancefloor'' from 1980. Well, I have to anticipate that it's excellent too.
    Happy new year!!

  2. Does Sophie Ellis Bexor have this record?

  3. A well educated guess Papuchi - any requests?

    Graeme - The only thing interesting thing about Ellis-Bextor are my distant memories of her mum on "Blue Peter"

  4. Cheers Bristolboy!
