We asked our friends and lovers to help us.

John Doran meets Gary Numan for the second episode of The British Masters, our latest interview series featuring the most influential and colourful figures from British popular music history.
In Johns Words “Today I’m talking to Gary Numan, who became an overnight sensation in 1979 when his post punk group Tubeway Army released the single “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” and then achieved worldwide success later the same year with the release of his first solo album, and one of the cornerstones of synth pop, ‘The Pleasure Principle.’ Following some very lean years in the wilderness, Gary started the long and arduous task of rebuilding his career in the mid-90s, becoming a peer of many industrial and techno artists he had originally been an influence on. We catch him on tour in the UK as he gears up for the release of his 18th solo album, the much anticipated “Splinter.”
Gary Numan’s new remix album “Dead Moon Falling” (Mortal Records), a remix of 2011’s “Dead Son Rising,” is available now from http://www.numan.co.uk

Right before Christmas a new and extremely rare electronic music album has hit the shelves.
It is a secret group on Facebook called Electronically Yours that has released an album featuring classic 70′s songs and remixed to fit an electronic audience of the 21st century. And it is not an anonymous bunch of musicians on this album – among the secret members you will find Joakim Montelius (Covenant) under his alter ego Tectonic Knights, Eddie Bengtsson with PAGE, Diskodiktator, compute and Steelberry Clones, to name but a few.
Now you can watch them live – this is Electronically Yours as they made their first performance at ElectriXmas in Malmoe, Sweden on December 15th 2012.
On stage in the video: PAGE, independent state, compute and yours truly Steelberry Clones
More info here:
S T E E L B E R R Y C L O N E S has been busy preparing for the release of their new full length album ‘Retrosonic Voices’ out in Q1-2013. As a teaser the band has now released their second single from the album on SoundCloud called Victims of fashion.
Just as with their previous single Sweet sexy virgin, Steelberry Clones continues to explore things that really matters, and this time around they are dissecting the world of fashion and the sometimes harsh working conditions these young people end up going through. The song is an uptempo electro pop song with strong synth bass beats and smooth synth sounds. Steelberry Clones has always tried to do a blend of music that deals with subjects that concerns us, paired with retrospective quests into things that intrigues them, such as space, 1950’s, technology advancements, historical events and personal experiences.
The new release “Victims of fashion” will be accompanied with a video in the coming weeks. The new album “Retrosonic Voices” is due next year and will combine the best of modern electronic pop music with old-school sounds from the past 30 years of electronic music.
Artist: S T E E L B E R R Y C L O N E S
Title: Victims of fashion
Album: Retrosonic Voices (Q1-2013) – will be released on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and Limited edition hard copy
Label: Stereoklang Produktion

To provide you with the right feeling of the album we give you Joakim’s post on the official Covenant Facebook page below, and if you are in Sweden on December 15th you can see Electronically Yours live on stage at ElectriXmas
Message from Joakim from Covenant:
So. X-mas is saved. See, I’m a member of a secret society called Electronically Yours. We are a bunch of (mostly) Swedish geeks and electronic music aficionados. Some are famous, some are merely notorious. A few of us are both. A while back the Chairman of this obscure virtual tribe had an idea. A whim, actually, but through the means of great secrecy, clever masterminding, as well as gullible people willing to accept an unknown, non-negotiable missio
n from which there was no way to back out, the whim has now turned into the fulfilment of a rather daring project.
The idea was to turn a bunch of great ’70s hits by artists as diverse as Sweet, Slade, Hot Chocolate, Tom Jones, Curtis Mayfield and Deep Purple into modern, electronic interpretations. The results baffled us all. So we decided to make an album out of it and release it as a non-profit project and all proceeds will be given away to the Swedish charity “Musikhjälpen”.
And that’s why X-mas is saved: you get a great album (and I do not say that just because I’m on it as my alter ego Tectonic Knights, it really is an amazing collection of songs) PLUS a very large part of the money you pay for it goes to help people in dire need of it. That’s what I call a win-win arrangement.
