  4. One day change for the start. Of course we are going to need at least 3 more to make the vote viable.

  7. I hope not. I am down with the flu at the moment so that date may slip back a couple of days if I am not feeling any better tomorrow.

  9. @simes1970 ManFlu is a serious business - please go straight to bed, have plenty of liquids (cranberry juice) and boxes and boxes of chocolates - they must be your favourite type! Oh, and your partner MUST pamper you until you're better! Get well soon

  17. "Waves" still sound slick Ultravox - Vienna Part two!
     
  18. This was the inspiration behind the title of my homemade 4CD Blancmange collection, "Angles Sinthology".

    God's Kitchen-I've Seen The Word Entered Chart 17-04-82 65-65 Highest Chart position 65.

    The first track to enter the chart for Blancmange arrived in April 1982. God's Kitchen/ I've Seen The Word. Totally different sound to the 1980 release this saw the band experiment more with both synth sounds and a little hint of the eastern influence that was to come. Personally of the 2 tracks I prefer I've Seen The Word, I have always preferred the melancholy synth pop. Chart Position for both it's weeks on the chart was 65.

    Feel Me Entered Chart 31-07-82 55-46-47-52-74 Peak 46 Weeks On Chart 5
    Second charting track Feel Me although not making the Top 40 did spend 5 weeks on the chart peaking at 46. A grower more than anything for me. I still go between liking and not liking this track.
