My kids are half British and their mom was born there. We were visiting her dad so it wasn’t like, “lets go on vacation and instead of London or Manchester, lets go to Rochdale!” lol
Just read a letter from Philip Gould (the drummer) about finally coming to accept his role in pop music history.
Back story here is Level 42 started out as more of a jazz-funk fusion thing before gradually moving more & more into pop, culminating in a break-up after a US tour at their height supporting Madonna. Phil & his brother Boon (the guitarist) split, & the band floundered after that, with some bitterness but not outright acrimony between the four.
Boon killed himself a couple years ago.
Really, I did not know that.
A lot of bands have some bitter stories to tell. Spandau Ballet is another one that comes to mind.
Weren’t they lip singing/syncing over someone else’s vocals?
Not sure. They sing this song in concert. But there was a lot of lip synhcing going on back then, in all places.
Beverly Hills Cop theme.
Man, havnt heard that in a long while!
Together in Electric Dreams.
These are all great songs they play while you’re shopping, then you get pissed when they interrupt them for a store announcement.
