INFO > Active between 1987 and 1990, British synthpop trio When In Rome comprised Clive Farrington, Andrew Mann, and Michael Floreale. A one hit wonder, the group is best remembered for their debut single, “The Promise.”

Trivia > The ‘O.N. Mix’ refers to Oliver North, a U.S. Marine at the center of the Iran-Contra affair controversy of the late-1980s. The track was titled ‘The Ollie North Mix’ on the single’s initial 1987 release; however, the acronym was used for subsequent issues.
