Change just one letter in Yahoo and what do you get?

80's electro pop in the form of Yazoo!

Is this bringing back memories? I was 4 and by the time little 'born in the 80's' Calvin Harris was born, they'd been and gone.

Yazoo (Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke) were a short-lived (formed in '81 split in '83) but highly successful English synthpop duo from Basildon, Essex that had a number of top ten hits in the UK charts back in the beginning of the '80's (the eight-tees).

To help your memory,(because it was 26 years ago) here's one of their singles Situation (slightly remixed)



Well Duran Duran don't seem to be the only 80's come back kids, Yazoo are playing at the Hammersmith Apollo in London on June 18th. At a stinking price of £45 a ticket they've sadly bypassed struggling bloggers like me and it'll probably only be the 40 some things that can actually justify spending that kind of money on a ticket! Tickets go on sale on Friday.


Incidentally my trekking buddy (who I'm meeting for a near Brick Lane curry tonight-yeah) used to drive Alison Moyet around between gigs many years ago. He's a bit of a dude...

Do you remember Yazoo? Any comments on this blog, would love to hear from you.
