Flash and the Pan was an Australian New Wave group (essentially an ongoing studio project) formed in the late 1970s by Harry Vanda and George Young, both former members of the Easybeats. George Young is also an older brother to Angus Young and Malcolm Young of AC/DC.
Until the release of "Waiting for a Train" in 1983 they had been a one-hit wonder in the UK, which was a coincidence as the expression 'a flash in the pan' denotes something that is only briefly popular. The duo gained further exposure through the track from their debut album, "Walking in the Rain", which was later covered by Grace Jones.
A big personal favorite for these raining days..

Love De-Luxe was a disco studio group assembled by British producer Alan Hawkshaw. They had one chart entry: "Here Comes That Sound Again," which spent a week at #1 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in 1979. Vicki Brown and Jo-Ann Stone provided the vocals and the track was technically credited to Love De-Luxe with Hawkskaw's Discophonia.
