Eurovision: Bardo Picture Disc

Yet another thing to emerge from a recent trawl through the attic. This time a picture disk of 1982 UK Eurovision representatives Bardo and their brilliantly produced song One Step Further.

The single was brilliant. Overlook the cheesy promo video the BBC produced in the run up to the 1982 contest. Just listen to the multi-layered track. There’s love in that.

The live production for the contest was a little disappointing in comparison. Hey ho. And even if they did wallow in seventh place (they were favourites to win), they were a lovely pair. And remain so too.

I confess to recalling having a crush on singer Stephen Fischer back in 1982. Shock horror. I was barely 10 years old. I suspect we can count that as the ‘phase’ period.

Things are a little different now, it has to be said. Watch the pair’s reunion performance from 2010, and arrive at your own conclusion.
