INFO > William ‘Bud’ LaTour began his professional career as an on-air personality, working at various radio stations in Arizona during the early-to-mid 1980s. That environment fostered his talents for performing voice-overs and writing song parodies, much in the same vein as ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic.

LaTour relocated to Chicago in 1987 and continued climbing the ranks in radio, while also finding time to start a punk band, The Squids, and work as an engineer in a recording studio. Producing tracks with ‘Housemaster’ Terry Baldwin piqued Bud’s interest in dance music and inspired his next endeavor: solo artist.

LaTour’s debut, “People Are Still Having Sex”, was an unusual and controversial song in 1991, which no doubt helped it’s chart placement: the single cracked the US Top 40 and peaked at 15 in the UK. Concurrent with his mainstream success and underground following with The Squids, LaTour continued working in radio, which has always remained his true passion.

The promotional video features the Safe Sex 7″ mix, which changes the line “This AIDS thing’s not working,” to “This safe thing’s not working.”

INFO > American vocalist Kym Sims (Kimberly Russell) received her first break from Derrick Carter, who enlisted her to sing “Love Me Right”, a 1988 single released by Carter under the alias Conception. Sims would later experience huge success with her debut single, “Too Blind To See It”, produced by Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley. The song just broke the Billboard Top 40 in the US, but was a much bigger hit across the Atlantic, where it spent 12 weeks on the UK Singles Chart, ultimately peaking at 5. Maurice Joshua’s ‘Superdub Mix’ is digitally exclusive to the US promo CD.
