The Assembly re-united at the Mute festival (Clarke’s post-Yazoo project)

May 19, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized 

The Assembly were a synthpop project formed in 1983 in Basildon shortly after Clarke disbanded Yazoo. The members were Vince Clarke (songwriting, keyboards, backing vocals) and sound engineer Eric Radcliffe (songwriting, production). Feargal Sharkey was hired as a guest vocalist for the A-side of the group’s only single, “Never Never”. Clarke and Radcliffe had planned to use a different singer on each track the group recorded, but the group disbanded after the release of “Never Never”, and no other vocalists were employed by the duo.

The Assembly ‘reunited’ for one song in-between the Erasure set which itself was preceded by 3 songs by Yazoo. It was Andy Bell who introduced Sharkey, saying that Vince Clarke had an impeccable taste for excellent singers.
