The doyens of Darlington return ! Jazz funk/northern soul /disco
outfit Weekend Sun return to Hero Records to release their new double A-sided single on 45 featuring the tracks 'Losers And Fools' and 'Hole In My Heart' .'Losers And Fools ' is a sparse slow burning gem highlighting Esther Taylor's fantastically emotive and yearning vocals.A fresh sounding production with crisp drums,spry bass and the familiar tinkle of rhodes piano (or is it wurly?) both great sounds anyway! No wonder i'tsbeen played heavily on Chris Donald’s Soul Show (BBC Newcastle) and won his'single of the week spin off' into the bargain......

The discofied 'Hole In My Heart' is a belter too revealing new aspects
of the band and yet very accessible to inspire newcomers to
convert.Eat your heart out The Incredible Bongo Band there's three
bongo breaks on this floor filler thriller of a tune! Weekend Sun are
back and giving me the sunny shivers and showing much ingenuity.Bang On!
