Richard, did you have any interest in the Sheffield bands ABC/Human League or Cabaret Voltaire from the early 80's.

As pop albums go ABC's "Lexicon of Love" & The Human League's "Dare" are great pop albums and hard to beat from that era. The Human League single "Being Boiled" is also a great single.

ABC have got a new single out soon, its being played pretty heavily on Radio 2 at the minute and sounds like they have completely disregarded 1986 - 2008. But in a really good way. Its a definite guilty pleasure of mine just now. And Martin Fry is a big Man U fan which always helps in my book. The less said about advertising crappy Citroens back in '89 the better though...

treebound story(my first band i was in)used to rehearse at western works beneath cabaret voltaire Richard Kirk is a pal and i loved that band they were lightyears ahead of their time,The Human League were good,not keen on much else,Steve Singleton from ABC is a lifelong friend having been a manager of mine for a long while,ABC was a bit too poppy for me but they were a good band i struggled in the 80's to be honest with music,i hated the new romantic bollocks with a passion,false shite,i loved John Peel that kept me sane along with all my old records that i still love.There were a lot of boss bands from sheff at that time that never got the recogniton they more than deserved,Clock DVA and Artery being two that immediatley spring to mind.

If you're referring to 'Lexicon Of Love', I agree wholeheartedly. However, 'Beauty Stab' is, AFAIC, the single most unfairly ignored record of the 80's, and I got to tell that to Martin Fry himself (an absolute sweetheart, BTW).

Richard: Didn't Steven Singleton leave ABC because the other two weren't willing to tour behind that album?

I agree Bloodshift, I met Martin Fry a number of years back after an ABC show in Cork and he was an absolute gentleman, he signed evrything put in front of him and also stood for photos. I also had a great conversation with him about the late great Billy Mackenzie.
