On July 23rd a “best of” album of the 80s group Blancmange will be released, although never any of my personal favorites a couple of good tracks came out of their basement
However should you be very keen on Blancmange and want to know more about them and the upcoming release, check out this nice article at the Electricity Club >>
Thankfully, some of those missing tracks by The Maiden Aunts of Techno have surfaced on ‘The Very Best Of BLANCMANGE’, a timely new 2CD collection compiled by Music Club Deluxe with input from Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe themselves. Music Club Deluxe, an arm of Edsel’s parent group Demon, have made a concerted effort to work with Warners to source masters and negotiate around any contractual issues with the BBC to plug the essential gaps in BLANCMANGE’s digital catalogue. While all the singles like ‘God’s Kitchen’, ‘Feel Me’ ‘Living On The Ceiling’, ‘Blind Vision’, ‘Don’t Tell Me’ and ‘That’s Love That it Is’ are included, it is the rarities and selected album highlights (including most of ‘Happy Families’ and songs such as ‘Murder’ and ‘All Things Are Nice’) which make this collection.
This is a taste of one of the songs from Citizen One. Citizen One has created electronic pop versions of six classic Beatles songs. Search for Citizen One on Facebook and iTunes.
In the past decade Sweden’s most successful synthpop export product S.P.O.C.K released an album every second year. The last S.P.O.C.K album was released in 2001, since then it has been very silent around the band. The band still keeps on playing live, and since they’ve been invited to the biggest synth festival in North America, Kinitek which took place between May 17 til May 20, they decided to assemble a compilation to a market where the material has been hard to acquire since most of the S.P.O.C.K catalogue has been long deleted.

HIGH QUALITY 1982 PERFORMANCE (ROLAND JUPITER 8, MOOG)
“See You” is the fourth UK single by Depeche Mode and the first written by Martin Gore. The single was released on 29 January 1982 and was later included on the band’s second album A Broken Frame. The single launched a small world tour, with extra band member Alan Wilder, although he did not contribute to the song or the album. There are two versions of “See You” — the single version, and an extended version with a longer intro. This became the album version.
The B-side to “See You” is “Now, This Is Fun”. The extended version has a bigger bridge in the middle and a longer ending, with David Gahan sometimes shouting “This is funny!” instead of “This is real fun!”.
The video for “See You” was directed by Julien Temple. It was also the first video with Alan Wilder. He can be seen briefly playing the keyboards, and he also appears in several photo booth strips. At the beginning of the video there is a speakerphone, much like the one on the cover of Music for the Masses, released five years later. The band did not like the video, and it did not show up on the 1985 video compilation Some Great Videos, which included the band’s videos up to 1985 except the A Broken Frame singles and “Get the Balance Right”.
