BlancmangeHappy Families Too
album, “Happy Families”, with its mixture of theatricality and sincerity won them a legion of fans. Neil refers to the new versions on this vinyl LP,
which include fan favourites “I Can't Explain”, “Waves”, “Feel Me” and “Living On The Ceiling” - as an “interpretation”. “I just wanted to approach
the songs using today's technology,” he says. “Every time we perform it's a different interpretation. So rather than just dust off the old songs, I wanted
to bring something fresh to the project and make it a contemporary reworking rather than an exact imitation.” Predating the acid house
explosion and the many subsequent sub genres, Blancmange's music is a key cornerstone in the musical landscape that shaped both the original
electronic music boom and its huge lasting legacy.
