Andy Bell’s hard time to get rid of the Erasure legacy

A couple of weeks ago Andy Bell (Erasure) teamed up with video-makers Caz Gorham and Frances Dickenson to film a ‘homemade’ video for Andy Bell’s “Call On Me” single, which is to be released on CD and via download next week. The single is taken from Bell’s newest solo album “Non-Stop” which was originally to be released under the Mimó flag. The video was shot by the same team that made Erasure’s “I Love Saturday” video among others.

Apparently Bell started working with Belgian producer Gabriel Pascal after the tunes e recorded with Stephen Hague were scrapped. The sessions with The Hague (who was behind records by New Order, Pet Shop Boys and even Erasure) sounded ‘too much like Erasure’, according to Bell’s label bosses. Bell had this to say about this change in an interview with Spinner: “I thought, ‘I’ve been in the business all this time, and now I’m not allowed to sound like myself? It’s kind of strange.”

And Bell also wants to go the ‘Gahan’ way by penning Erasure songs as well: “It’s a bit hard with boys with their toys, with their synths, to get a way in, but I think through making this record, it’s maybe opened the door a bit. We’ve got quite a few ideas. There are quite a lot of really good ideas. I’m just kind of looking forward to honing them down, really. I’ve got a load of lyrics to do. It’s a bit daunting.”
