Blancmange

Are they still together? I don’t think so. (Or are they?)

Did you ever see them play live? No.

Anything you want / need by them? Maybe some 7” UK singles?

  1. Happy Families (1982) I have only orig CD issue of this title
  2. Mange Tout (1984) I have only orig CD issue of this title
  3. Believe You Me (1985) I do not own this title on CD…yet!

As close as I ever got to seeing them play live was on MTV – and I’m still looking for my beta videocassette of that show!

Definitely one of the earlier of the “sampler” bands.  And they were certainly making music videos 100% contemporary with the advent of MTV, not that I ever saw much of them on there, beyond that aforementioned live show.  “Lose Your Love” was a really amusing music video, with them spilling all that paint!

    I thought I mentioned this before, but Blancmange have released their fourth album this year! They are definitely still together [after a stately 25 year dry spell]. http://www.blancmange.co.uk/

    Ah, yes – I can see it now…

    Jazz baritone sax player Ronnie Ross appeared on the 3rd Blancmange album, apparently…
