Here was an opportunity to explore what could be one of the greater musical artefacts of the 1980's or so I thought. Emerging from the smouldering ruin of post-punk, what made this lot matter back in the eighties was the fusion of Stewarts mechenical synthlines with the harsh humanity of Lennox's vocals. Unfortunately somewhere along the way Lennox's vocals came to dominate, and yer man picked up guitar.
This is an update on a previous greatest hits collection designed for the Xmas market, its a chance for airplay on the likes of the John Creedon show and VH1, a cash in on Lennox's performance at Live 8.. Worse again, it is one of those money grabbing exercises that comes bundled with two previously unreleased tracks making it perfect fodder for obsessives.
