C2a3thy Decn3nis - Mo3ve t3o T3his

                                             C2a3thy Decn3nis - Mo3ve t3o T3his

Move to This , spawned five singles which were spread out over a period of three years.

The first single, "C'mon and Get My Love", which also appeared on the D Mob album A Little Bit of This, a Little Bit of That and was credited to either D Mob or "D Mob introducing Cathy Dennis", was released in 1989.

I found  with singers who had been part of a group , usually did shit  solo releases or  top albums.. (BETTY BOOP ???  anyone hahahahha ) this sits halfway hahahahh

This is the 2 DISC 2014 remaster contains 20 bonus songs.
The remasterin is really top notch..

SO many 12" mixes and yeah I was  a fan back in the day ahhahahaah i loved D-MOB

Du3ra3n Du3ran L3iber3ty

                                               Du3ra3n Du3ran  L3iber3ty 


In 1990 DD released this- their 6th album and their weakest to date...

Bassist John Taylor admitted that he was struggling with his drug addictions during recording of the album. He said, "When we were in rehearsal, it seemed like we had a great album, but we weren't able to parlay it into a great album in the studio, whatever. I can just remember smoking hash oil, that's all I can really remember about making that album.".

haha musta have been shit hash m8 hahaha

A bootleg recording of the demo sessions for the album, titled Didn't Anybody Tell You? surfaced in 1999. Many unreleased, scrapped songs from the Liberty sessions were heard by the public for the first time:

    "Money on Your Side"
    "Dream Nation"
    "In Between Woman"
    "Worth Waiting For"
    "My Family" (played live 1989)

Ive not heard any of these bootleg songs, but I sure would like to.. Over production is what makes this album sound like a Cliff Richard record hahahaha.

Still they had 2 fairly successful singles from this.... it isnt their worst- RED CARPET MASSACRE owns that distinction hahahah

Too many keyboard overdubs and the vocals were over produced IMO

DD were already plannin in 1991 the next album, known as the Wedding album which restored my faith in the band

This is the Limited Edition with bonus cd of 3 songs not on the original album

A Flo3ck O3f Sea3g3u3lls Li3ve 19a82

                                             A Flo3ck O3f Sea3g3u3lls Li3ve 19a82

Today's post is 1 of my fav live albums. Recorded in August 1982 and somehow a obscure German record label released it in 2000! lol.

Sound is farkin epic...

12 tracks which cover their debut album . There are 2 b sides here and a song which would appear on Listen! their 2nd release albeit remixed..although said song was their first ever single! altho that version is very raw

Every song kicks ass. It IS 1 of the best live albums I own

Man Made is even better than the studio version. Haunting song and the best on this album and their debut

So crank it up whip ya hair out in all directions. hair Gel and a vacuum cleaner shud do it and step bk to a magic time in music

There are 13 tracks allup- the entire album as it is heard on the disc and seperate trackls as i got a email askin if I could do this

Absolutely ,no problem

Man made machines make music for the man.
Now machines make music while the man makes plans.
A second generation, a generation lost,
While the man prepares for the holocaust
