In his book Thompson Twin: An '80s Memoir
, Michael White said "Love On Your Side" was their first big hit, and was almost literally a hit for him. When the new boy walked into the studio, Alannah Currie was completing a percussion part for the song; White commented, "I still don't understand how I could have been so dumb. The red light was on over the door to the recording room, and it wasn't a small red light, in fact it was huge. She completely lost her cool and only just managed to stop herself from throwing her drumsticks at me. I was mortified, but my apologies met deaf ears and it took days for her to bring herself to talk to me again."
White didn't stay with the band long, not because of this incident, but because of the way the group developed. The Thompson Twins were originally a 7-piece, but for most of their career there were three of them, including Tom Bailey, who married Currie, though they later divorced.
