The The - Uncertain Smile b/w Three Orange Kisses From Kazan (1983) - single

This late night brooder about unrequited love was originally released in 1981 in a different form and titled "Cold Spell Ahead." It was re-recorded in 1982 in New York as "Uncertain Smile" in 1982 after The The had been signed by Epic Records in the USA. That version, which featured flutes and a saxophone solo from session player Crispin Cioe peaked at #68 on the UK singles chart.
The most-familiar version, which was recorded for the Soul Mining album, replaced the saxophone with a lengthy Jazz piano solo by Squeeze's Jools Holland (better known now as the host of BBC' TV's music show Later). Asked by Uncut magazine August 2014 how they got Holland to play on the track, The The mainman Matt Johnson replied: "The garden (studios) had this beautiful little Yamaha C3 Baby Grand, and the decision was, 'We have this fantastically long outro for 'Uncertain Smile.' We need to put this piano on something. Who do we know who can play it? Jools showed up, cool as a cucumber despite the sweltering heat, dressed in leathers, and he was absolutely charming."

Company B's first single "Fascinated" was released in 1986 on the independent label The Summer. The song created so much buzz in clubs around Miami that it soon made its way to local radio stations. This in turn led to its being picked up and re-released by Atlantic records. With a much wider distribution due to major label [Atlantic] backing, "Fascinated" received significant radio and club airplay in all major cities throughout the U.S. It reached number one on the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart and crossed over to pop radio.

Trafassi - Huishoudschool b/w Carnafassi (medley: Margreet, Dans Met Mij, Huishoudschool, Amsterdam, Ela Ela, Strijkplank) (1986) - single

Trafassi (Surinaams voor ommezwaai of anders) is een Surinaams-Nederlandse allround-feestband rond zanger-percussionist Edgar 'Bugru' Burgos, een neef van Lieve Hugo. Trafassi speelt een mengeling van Caribische stijlen, top 40-hits en eigen materiaal.
Trafassi werd in 1981 opgericht door ex-leden van The Happy Boys, de voormalige begeleidingsband van Lieve Hugo. Trafassi begon als kaseko-formatie maar ontwikkelde zich geleidelijk tot een veelgevraagde allround-band met nummers in het Surinaams, Nederlands en Engels.
In 1985 scoorde de band een hit met "Wasmasjien". De singles die daarna volgden werden door de platenmaatschappij afgewezen omdat ze niet als "Wasmasjien" klonken. Eind jaren negentig kwam het tot een breuk tussen Burgos en de overige Trafassi-leden (eveneens leadzangers). Burgos richtte een nieuwe Trafassi op waarmee hij nog steeds optreedt en in 2010 aan een theatertournee begon ter gelegenheid van het dertigjarig jubileum.
