a la tienne - kissing me with your mind 12'' 1986

here's a hand me down excellent record from the goth_boy, so lucky to have friend who's taste in music aren't that similar but just as good. that just goes to show that any mistake he makes(in purchasing unknown bands, records, that is) will end up being mine, if it's not up to his dark/goth standards. not that i'm hoping for it, just grateful to be the lucky recipient. piece like this cost about well over $50 on discogs marketplace or ebay, so its kinda like getting some dough from a friend, literally.. but don't tell him that!

suicide romeo - suicide romeo 7" 1980

the only single i have heard from this interesting french new wave/disco band on france's very own celluloid records that was founded in 1979. a label you might be familiar of for releasing(and i'm going a bit mainstream here) time zone's world destruction, soft cell's tainted love et al. it's not really my cup of tea but i'm sure someone out  there will find this somewhat helpful, perhaps would bring some memories back or maybe had danced to this tune before! anyway i believe this was the quartet's only single.. a bit funky and on the disco side if you know what i mean.

pierre & franz - life In tokyo 12'' 1989



originally performed by the unmistakably fashionable new romantic london outfit "japan" in 1979, the band comprised of david sylvian, mick karn, richard barbieri, his brother steve jansen and later on joined by rob dean(guitarist), made some damage in the uk charts early in the eighties with records such as tin drum and gentlemen takes polaroids.
a cover version of pierre & franz is quite a hi-energy ensemble, same harmony with italo taste. now i've heard a lot of bad cover versions but not this one. probably duo's sole single on disco magic records.
