Comic Romance - Cry Myself to Sleep 7" (1979)
Most of you probably don't recognize the name Robin Scott. He was involved in music since the 60's after declining a partnership in Malcom MacLaren's
SEX shop. He played folk songs sharing the bill with David Bowie.
In 1972 he entered the 'Search For A Star' national talent contest, which he won, and was offered a recording contract by EMI, but, because they would not support his backing band, he turned down the deal.
Among a number of other projects he put out this single in 1979. It was the only release under this name.
That same year he released music under the name M which, as with Comic Romance, was himself and studio musicians - not an actual band.
After M's song Pop Muzik became a hit this single was re-released with a new cover to cash in on the sucess.
A - Cry Myself to Sleep
B - Cowboys and Indians
