VINCE CLARKE'S SECOND 'ANALOGUE MONOLOGUE' FILM NOW ONLINE The second video in Vince's 'Analogue Monologues' series has gone online this week for your viewing pleasure. As with the first film in the series (dedicated to Sequential Circuits' Pro-One) the film features Vince introducing and demonstrating another of his analogue synths - the Roland System 100m - and proves, once and for all, that he really doesn't know much about anything??? another must see!
VINCE CLARKE'S SOUNDTRACKS FOR THE 'GHOSTGIRL' AUDIO EDITIONS A number of people have emailed me to ask if it's possible to buy the audio editions of Tonya Hurley's first two 'Ghostgirl' novels, featuring Vince Clarke's soundtrack work, from outside the USA. The answer, I'm pleased to tell you, is yes and you can buy them from RecordedBooks.com who will apparently ship internationally. On the subject of Vince and 'Ghostgirl', the 'Ghostgirl: Lovesick' video trailer - featuring music performed by Polly Scattergood arranged, produced and mixed by Vince Clarke - is one of the nominees in this year’s School Library Journal Trailee Awards. More details on the official Vince Clarke website.
YAZOO 'RECONNECTED LIVE' REVIEWS & INTERVIEWS More excellent reviews for Yazoo's 'Reconnected Live' album have come in since last week including a fantastic piece from BBC Music who wrote 'These days, when borrowing from the 80s is practically an imperative, Yazoo are more relevant than ever. But who would have thought that a tour, recorded 25 years after they split, would make such essential listening?' which is nice. My favourite however is an enthusiastic, but utterly bizarre, review from The San Diego Reader which I think you have to read for yourself. As part of the promotion for the release Vince has also done a number of interviews, including The Quietus one mentioned last week and an interesting one with the Yorkshire Evening Post in which he talks about Yazoo, the 'Reconnected' tour, the new Erasure album and his collaboration with Martin Gore. See the news sections at the Yazoo or Vince Clarke websites for all the details.
