The earlier incarnation has been pretty much overlooked in retrospect. The Tourists had some very good records and they had the hugely talented (and much lamented) Conny Plank producing those early endeavors.
But as is the case with many bands, individuals grow and blossom in different directions, achieving a different sound. And The Eurythmics were vastly different than The Tourists and they became a massive commercial hit as the result.
I suspect you’ll find you’re more familiar with them than you imagined. Still a good band at the time – who knew what was in store?
Enjoy – just over 27 minutes worth.
