Arrow Looking for a rare game I remember, can you help?

I remember walking through the Arndale centre in Manchester in late 80s and heard music coming from game shop (forgot name). I thought it was a tv music video but it was a game! Would love to see it again, I bought it but long gone now.

It's a regular bat and ball game (like breakout/arkanoid)
Think it's Amiga but could be Atari ST
Had static picture in game with music singing on it

Any ideas?

If not Detonator, then Demolition is the other early Breakout clone that featured sampled music.
