Next up I shall look at the chart runs of the tracks that charted and we can discuss each track as it comes up. Enjoy listening back to some of the lesser known Blancmange tracks.

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.
