Mumbai Science, so happy to be hearing new tracks from these guys. Their last original EP Gold came out in 2010 and it still would have been hot shit if it was hitting the shelves tomorrow. The Belgian duo’s latest appearance was on the remix EP for the new Goose single Synrise. The band dropped their new album not too long ago so check that out while you sip on this remix. [Source]

Between running the storied Versatile Records, DJing as Gilb’r, and being one half of Château Flight, Gilbert Cohen is a man with a full plate. Yet he found time to team up with Lisa Li-Lund to form The Big Crunch Theory, a charming synth-pop project. Their first single, “Arrows,” finds Li-Lund’s unfinessed vocals frolicking with trembling organ chords and hand claps, recalling 50′s girl groups as much as, say, Belle & Sebastian. But being a Versatile release, “Arrows” needed more dance floor potential and was sent to Juan MacLean for a disco/house remodeling. [Source]
The eighties hit performed on The Tube UK TV pop show December 31, 1982. Blancmange was formed in Harrow, Middlesex in 1979 by singer Neil Arthur and instrumentalist Stephen Luscombe. The duo released their first EP “Irene and Mavis” the following year, but had their first real exposure via a track on the seminal Some Bizzare Album, alongside fellow acts Soft Cell and Depeche Mode. This led to them signing a recording contract with London Records.

Black Devil Disco Club is the pseudonym of Bernard Fevre, one half of the duo responsible for the lost 1978 disco classic of the same name, and responsible for a 2004 album that people believed to be the work of Aphex Twin and Luke Vibert. The Circus album features feat. Nancy Sinatra, Afrika Bambaataa, Faris Badwan (the Horrors), YACHT, Jon Spencer (Blues Explosion), Aja Emma (Cosmetics), CocknBullKid, Nancy Fortune and Nicolas Ker (Poni Hoax).
“God Save the Queen” is a song by the English punk rock band The Sex Pistols. It was released as the band’s second single and was featured on their only album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols. The song was released during Queen Elizabeth II’s Silver Jubilee in 1977. The record’s lyrics, as well as the cover, were controversial at the time, and both the BBC and the Independent Broadcasting Authority refused to play the song.
In 1983, coinciding with the departure of Watson (who went on to found The Hafler Trio with Andrew M. McKenzie before becoming a BBC sound engineer and then a soloist), Cabaret Voltaire decided consciously to turn in a more commercial direction, with the album The Crackdown on Some Bizzare / Virgin Records. This decision was rewarded with the album reaching number 31 in the UK Albums Chart – over 60 places higher than their previous (and then only) chart placing.
