Menage a trois - K-Ram

I have a copy of the single by K-Ram called 'Menage a trois'. Some time after buying the single I found this 12" single and I decided I wanted to hear the remix - especially since I could buy the 12" single for a low price.

K-Ram sounds a lot like Wham!, but it tries too hard to do so without being able to match the quality of the duo's lyrics.

My collection: 12" single no. 337
Found: Plaatboef, Rotterdam, 2000
Cost: 2,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Menage a trois (Whopper chopper mix)' / 'Menage a trois', 'Menage a trois (instrumental)'

Menage a trois - K-Ram

I didn't realise this at the time, but the single 'Menage a trois' by K-Ram sounds a lot like the early singles by Wham!. It didn't help them a lot, because the single flopped in the UK. Surprisingly though, it was a hit in the Netherlands, peaking at number 28. The music video appeared regularly on Music Box and Sky Channel, the European satellite channels who were broadcasting videos at the time.

Singer Amanda Redington subsequently worked as a VJ on Music Box and got involved with Dutch singer/songwriter Frank Boeijen. They were together for a few years, which is more than we can say for K-Ram: they disappeared without a trace.

My collection: 7" single no. 2819
Found: Record fair, Amsterdam, February 1, 1997
Cost: 1 guilder
Tracks: 'menage a trois' / 'Menage a trois (instrumental)'
