Late Night Power Station Saturdays: Some Like It Hot


As these covers are a little PG-13 (well, these days, in the 1980s maybe R, I dunno, I’m not the judge of these things), I’m going to post them late on Saturdays for the next few weeks as a sort of sexy weekend surprise. Enjoy!

The Power Station was a 1980s supergroup made up of singer Robert Palmer, former Chic drummer Tony Thompson, and Duran Duran members John Taylor (bass) and Andy Taylor (guitar). Bernard Edwards, also of Chic, was involved on the studio side as recording producer and for a short time also functioned as The Power Station’s manager. Edwards also replaced John Taylor on bass for the recording of the supergroup’s follow-up album.

The band was formed in New York City late in 1984 during a break in Duran Duran’s schedule that became a lengthy hiatus. The Power Station was named after The Power Station recording studio where their album was conceived and recorded.
