While his military qualifications may have been somewhat spurious, there's no doubt that Colonel Abrams earned his stripes as a bona fide pop star - albeit only for a short time. His one genuinely massive worldwide hit, Trapped, came out in the autumn of 1985 and made it all the way to #3 in the UK charts, at a time when such an achievement actually meant something, in terms of sales as well as kudos.
But yes, Trapped sounded superb to my young ears then, and still sounds just as great all these years later. One of the most enduring dancefloor smashes of the decade? I certainly think so. Colonel, sir, I salute you!
