I had never heard this song or seen this video until I happened to do a search through all of the music videos that were released in 1987. Unfortunately, there’s not much behind-the-scenes information about this one. I can’t even tell you who played the video’s skateboard assassin.
I can tell that The Night You Murdered Love peaked at #31 on the UK singles charts. It was the 2nd single to be released off of ABC’s fourth studio album, Alphabet City. The song was produced by Bernard Edwards, who is best remembered for his work as a member of Chic (of La Freak fame). ABC, which was first founded in 1980, continues to tour that Martin Fry is the only permanent member.
According the imdb, this video is the sole directing credit for Les Bull Terriers.
