Marc Almond- General solo discussion

  1. Yes, I mentioned this again recently (reissue thread, I think) as Erasure have done a remix of Bedsitter for it...

  2. 2Cd Deluxe of the recent Hits & Pieces compilation is now £8 at Amazon. I've caved.

  4. Oh is it one of those Prime-Only offers? Sorry.
     
  5. Marc is headlining Liverpool Pride. And there was me thinking we'd get Scooch or someone of their ilk...
     
  6. So... new album is out on the 22nd September.

    Order details here: https://marcalmond.tmstor.es/

    I should also mention that I'll be hosting a Marc/Soft Cell/Mambas rate soon, so I hope you'll join me in celebrating his back catalogue!
     
  7. Quite like the sound of this, and the artwork is fairly smart, if basic. Of course, it looks a lot like something from the 60s, which is the point. The blue design is probably the best for me, but will have to go for the deluxe.

  8. What a lovely day for a spot of My Hand Over My Heart. All days are of course, but what a stunning song.

    Judging by the artwork for one of the 40 deluxe editions, there is a song called "Exclusive 7-inch Vinyl Single" which is an amazing title for a song and I want to hear it immediately.

  10. Not For Me is a song from the new album which is now on his website.
    It´s very The Stars We Are (which is amazing) with full orchestra and pearly piano which makes me wonder if Annie Hogan is back on board?

    but
    BUT
    BUT
    Did we talk about this?:

    Marc Almond covering fucking Valerie Dore??!!??! And doing a whole album of 80s "inspired" synthpop with Starcluster?!

  11. Fantastic album! No idea why they sat on it for so long (it was recorded in 2008), but glad they saw sense and eventually released it. It would be nice if they put out a CD at some point though. Three vinyl pressings and no CD?!

    Keeping up with his work, especially his guest appearances, is a job in itself. Thank God I spotted the Professor Purblind CD when it was still available. Only 100 copies pressed.

  14. Regrets.

    I've had a few.
     
  15. Wasn't sure if I needed another Best Of CD but caved at 5 quid, what a bargain.
