White Door were formed from prog rock band Grace who split up in 1981.
White Door created sensitive, well-written, electronic music. Their last single "Flame in My Heart" was more guitar-driven and took its instrumental riff from Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Two Tribes / One February Friday" who were recording at the time. White Door's producer, Andy Richards, went on to work with many top acts, including Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Sue Quin provided backing vocals. The members of White Door still tour as Grace.

Dirk Wears White Sox is the debut studio album by English new wave band Adam and the Ants. It was released on 30 October 1979 by record Do It. It holds the distinction of being the very first number one album on the UK Independent Albums Chart when the chart debuted in Record Week in 1980.The album was made with an early line-up of Adam and the Ants, which disbanded after the album was released. Guitarist Matthew Ashman and drummer David Barbarossa went on to form Bow Wow Wow with then-Ants bassist Leigh Gorman (who had only played one gig with the Ants and was not involved in any studio recordings). Original bassist Andy Warren had departed shortly after recording the album to join former Ants guitarist Lester Square in The Monochrome Set. Many of the songs, notably "Cleopatra" and "Never Trust a Man (With Egg on his Face)", remained a part of Adam Ant's live repertoire throughout his career, both with the Ants and later as a solo artist.
This is the 2004 remaster which contains 8 extra songs not on original release.

Kilimanjaro is the debut album by the neo-psychedelic Liverpool band The Teardrop Explodes, released on 10 October 1980..
In 2000 Q magazine placed Kilimanjaro at number 95 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever.The original working title for Kilimanjaro was Everyone Wants To Shag The Teardrop Explodes (this was later used for the CD release of demos for the band's never-finished third album). When originally released, the album featured a shadowy photograph of the band on the sleeve, but this was later changed to a cover showing Mount Kilimanjaro, the mountain after which the record was named. When the album was subsequently released on CD the cover artwork reverted to the original.
In 2000 Cope gave his blessings to re-release Kilimanjaro with a selection of bonus tracks (mainly single b-sides), original artwork, a remastered sound, and full lyrics and essays. A deluxe 3-disc edition followed in 2010, including original singles, b-sides and radio session recordings.
This is the 2000 Re-issue with 5 bonus songs made up of b sides and a live track

Released in 1981 this band and this album never got the recognition they deserved.
It really is one of the great, and perhaps forgotten, post-punk records ever made.They even cover a Bowie track "Repetition"
This album is very confrontational dealing with themes such as Domestic Violence, TORTURE and rape in the song *Armagh*
This album is a masterpiece of feminist rock ,

Tin Drum is the fifth and final studio album by English new wave group Japan continued the band's now-established mix of electronic elements with traditional instrumentation, but leans far more towards Far Eastern influences than any of their previous albums.With personality conflicts leading to rising tensions within the band,Tin Drum was to be the band's final studio album. Rob Dean had left the band at this point because thanks to the direction the band was taking, Dean's role had diminished (His guitar was obselete!!?Long-simmering differences among the bandmembers came to a head when Karn's girlfriend, photographer Yuka Fujii, moved in with Sylvian & that was the end of that. GHOSTS :P
4 singles were released from Tin Drum, the most successful being Ghosts

Their 11th & last studio album released in 1995. The Rapture showed how far the group had come and their ability to continually expand their sound. i used to intensely dislike this album purely cos it was their last however over time, I have slowly recognised the sheer brilliance of the album.What a glorious album to bow out on....
2014 remastered with a few bonus tracks

Stevens riffs are on point Idols songwriting and singing is top form as well... esp on: Man for all seasons" his guitar solo, it's a jazz solo in a rock song. very new for me @ the time hahahaha World forgotten boy is just 5.44 of mayhem. it jus such a mess it works hahaI liked his previous 2 albums but for me this albums just kicks ass from beginning to end Mr Broad was hooked on Heroin @ the time of making this and slams this album. I think its his Broken English,

The album was the first dub music album to hit the UK top 40. The dub style is characterized as a mainly instrumental version of an existing song, typically emphasizing the drums and bass.
Track 9 is a sample of industrial noise that closes the album.

Their 2nd album released in 1981 and contains their only single chart entry Einstein A Go-Go. The album went top 20 in the UK
Although Landscape werent exactly a success sales wise their recorded output sure was influential.More so now with the electro clash movement
This is the 2002 Cherry Red remaster which adds four songs from 1982-1983 singles -- "It's Not My Name," "Eastern Girl," "So Good So Pure So Kind," and "You Know How to Hurt Me" -- that found the band drifting into a yet more mechanized and (at the time) commercial new romantic sound.

From their first 4 albums,this comp brings together all the 12" mixes and couple of album tracks.+ BG's solo hit Everything I Own
I admit I wasnt the biggest fan of CC in the 80s, (in fact the bigger they got the more I detested their output hahahaah ) however the first album was good,the rest nah.. But this is CC @ their best and apart from 1 or 2 songs I still dislike there are some great songs on this. The Crying Game (extended dance mix)would have made this complete and removed Everything I Own which i hate still hahahahah

From the very beginning of their career, Duran Duran had dubbed the extended dance remixes of their songs "Night Versions",as they were intended for play in nightclubs. The collection includes all but one of the singles released between 1981 and 1984, and two album tracks.
For those Duranies wondering where New Moon On Monday is,included with this compilation is a separate enhanced CD containing a bonus mix of "New Moon on Monday". which is hard to play ..Duran were dumped by EMI around same time as this came out and EMI started to mine their back catalogue and have continued to do so.......

This is a 2 Disc collection of their extended mixes from 1978-1984 released in 2012..I only got this for the No 1 in Heaven tracks which are well worth the cost of this. Discogs rocks.

The album was recorded and released after Steve Strange decided to make Visage a live band instead of being solely a studio-based project, a decision that left him working only with drummer Rusty Egan and a trio of newer musicians. The cassette version of the album features remixes of the album's original tracks, with a total running time of over 50 minutes.
Only 2 of these tracks have been released on CD Digital format and that is the title track and Love Glove which appear on the Beat Boy reissue by Cherry Red. The rest havent seen the light of day in a reissue which SUCKS.
I bought this tape back in 1991 in a record shop.. It is on its final legs so to speak
I have done some adjusting to the overall sound using Adobe Audition and I think Ive done a remarkable job tbh hahahaha. AND it is a GREAT ALBUM
Friday, June 10, 2016

After The Anvil in 1982 Visage were having contractual problems. Beatboy was recorded over 82 83 and due to Visage's contractual difficulties with management, it led to Beatboy being delayed until 1984. Ure ,McGeoch and Adamson were first to bail.
2 many chiefs Ure said in 83...
A few singles We Move & Pleasure boys had been released instead of the album, so as a result their record company released this instead..

Moving onto themes of squalor and sleeaze , this band needs no introduction hahahaha. As the name implies, the album was recorded and mixed under the influence of ecstasy .

This is the 1998 remastered expanded Edition

Jak Airport had left by end of 79 and never recorded with Classix
He sadly died of cancer 2004 and Poly Styrene in 2011 of cancer also :(.
