Nikki Richards –Back To School

Nikki Richards –Back To School/ Factory Girl –Columbia YH-1-AX (1981 Japanese issue)

Teen dreamboat Nikki looks like a UK version of Shaun Cassidy but he delivers a raucous slab of powerpop with Glam overtones. It’s not quite the outright winner compared to Stanley Frank’s Schooldays, but it’s an infectious number that pumps along in fine melodic fashion. In the UK, Back To School was relegated to the B side of the yucky Factory Girl, but here is correctly positioned for the Japanese market.
