Saturday, March 28, 2009, 12:50 PM - Music, - UK, English
I found this between my old video tapes.
'The sun does rise' and 'Amor' at 'Later with Jools Holland'.
I don't now which year, but probably 1994.

There are different (single?) versions of Fashion and Bike Boys on the cd.
You can buy it from his MySpace page http://www.myspace.com/fashionlukesky for only $10 + $2,50 p&p.
He lives in California now, the lucky bastard.

2 Die in the West [4:13]
3 Red, Green & Gold [4:49]
4 Burning Down [3:33]

A rare tracks cd has soon to be followed, as a cd with brand new songs will.

Ryuichi Sakamoto featuring Thomas Dolby - Field Work (1985, JP/UK, electronic) 
Thursday, October 25, 2007, 11:04 PM - Music, - JP, - UK, English
Quite a catchy song done by Ryuichi Sakamoto in cooperation with Thomas Dolby.
The back side contains fifteen minutes of out of sync / random synth loops: Ryuichi's machines solo. It is used in the Field Work clip as background music at the beginning and the end.



1 Field Work [6:00]
2 Exhibition [15:29]

Rema-Rema - Wheel in the Roses (1980, UK, new wave) 
Wednesday, October 17, 2007, 11:36 PM - Music, - UK, English
The band consisted of Gary Asquith (guitar/vocals), Marco Pirroni (guitar), Mick Allen (bass/vocals), Mark Cox (keyboards) and Max (drums). Their sole EP, Wheel In The Roses, featured one side of studio recordings and another of live material. Their songs "Fond Affections" and "Rema-Rema" were later covered by This Mortal Coil and Big Black respectively.

Rema-Rema split up shortly after the EP's release in April 1980. Pirroni later hit the big time with Adam And The Ants. Asquith, Allen and Cox formed the short-lived Mass with Danny Briottet. Asquith then moved on to Renegade Soundwave, while Cox and Allen stayed with 4AD as part of The Wolfgang Press.

Drummer Max Prior went on to form El Trains (with Jay Strongman) and worked with Genesis P Orridge and Industrial Records as a solo artist under her real name (Dorothy), eventually joining Psychic TV full time.

1 Feedback Song [6:30]
2 Rema-Rema [4:11]

Side two (live june 1979):
1 Instrumental [4:00]
2 Fond Affections [4:00]
