Martha And The Muffins (M + M) - Black Stations, White Stations b/w Xoa Oho (1984) - single

Martha and the Muffins are a Canadian new wave band, active from 1977 to the present. The duo's 1984 album “Mystery Walk” was again co-produced by Daniel Lanois with Gane and Johnson, and it featured a large sticker crediting the band as "M + M o/k/a Martha and The Muffins". Guest players included drummer Yogi Horton, bassist Tinker Barfield, and the Brecker Brothers on horns. “Mystery Walk” album gave M + M/Martha and the Muffins their biggest hit in years with "Black Stations/White Stations". The song was an anti-racist anthem whose first verse took radio stations to task for refusing to play a song about mixed-race romance, a story that Martha Johnson had heard related on the radio while driving in her car. "Black Stations/White Stations" was a hit in Canada; in the United States, it reached No. 2 on the dance music charts.
