Yaz!

26. Yazoo – Goodbye 70´s (1982)

Vi är tillbaka 1982 igen. Detta måste, att döma av listan, vara ett av de finaste musikåren någonsin. Vince Clarke lämnade som bekant Depeche Mode och bildade Yazoo med Alison Moyet istället. Good choice, indeed!! Det är jag knappast vara ensam att tycka. Vince gav världen ett bättre Depeche och fick själv ut sin fulla potential i framförallt Yazoo och Erasure fram till 1990 cirka. Mannen är en legend. Alison har en fantastisk röst. Goodbye 70´s har aldrig tömt ett dansgolv i världshistorien. Fy fan vad bra. Stenhård syntpop när den är som allra jävla mest effektiv. Vi bugar och bockar för Vincent Martin från Basildon!

    from Yazoo Information Service :

    YAZOO release RECONNECTED LIVE on 2xCD, LCD and download on 27th September 2010.

    RECONNECTED LIVE documents one of pop’s most anticipated tours: Vince Clarke & Alison Moyet reunited for the first time in over 25 years. The Times said: “Clarke has unobtrusively retooled the band’s music for the digital age, making their vintage 1980s synthesizer ditties sound crisp, fluid and timeless” while The Guardian noted, “Yazoo’s first tour in 26 years finds the chemistry behind their smash hits unchanged.”

    RECONNECTED LIVE, from summer 2008, features classic tracks from Yazoo’s albums ‘Upstairs At Eric’s’ and ‘You And Me Both’, including Only You, Don’t Go and Situation plus tracks from ‘You And Me Both’, such as Nobody’s Diary, performed live for the first time ever.

    The joyous, unlikely coming together of Vince Clarke, who had just left Depeche Mode, and Alison Moyet lasted for only 2 albums, saw them originally only performing only 24 concerts worldwide, but they left an indelible mark on pop. Yazoo released ‘Upstairs At Erics’ in July 1982 then parted company just 12 months later on release of the second album ‘You And Me Both’, which reached Number 1 in the UK.

    Speaking prior to the Reconnected tour, Vince Clarke said: “It’s been really good going back to these songs after such a long while. Many of them have never been played live. I’m looking forward to performing them with Alison for all the fans who’ve enjoyed our music through the years but never had a chance to see Yazoo in concert”

    And Alison Moyet said: “Playing this material live is not about revision for me, it is about finishing something we started – writing, recording, performing. Three parts of a whole. A salmon cycle. It’s like going home.”

    Allt händer så fort här på listan. Jag hinner inte riktigt med. Goodbye 70´s är en riktig jävla dansgolvsrökare av rang. Det är svårt att stå still och låta bli att spela luftsynth till detta.
