Robert Palmer's Clues came out in 1980, a good five years before you couldn't help but hear him on the radio or (more likely) see him on television with a band of Teutonic models with excessive lipstick.
Clues was a fun record, and ahead of its time: synths, but not frothy, and a dance record with real grooves. Palmer recorded it at Compass Point studios in the Bahamas, with some Talking Heads crossover.
With Looking For Clues, he made one seriously hilarious video.
Dot Dot Dot is Morse code for the letter 'S,' the full message Guglielmo Marconi claimed to have received atop Signal Hill in St. John's in 1901. It ushered in the age of telecommunications. My maternal grandfather worked as a telegraph operator for Canadian Marconi on Signal Hill for many years.
As well, I have a habit of overusing the ellipsis when I write ... as frequent readers might notice.
