    Default Erasure

    One of my fave groups in the 80s is Erasure. Great to blast when driving the car and pedal to the metal....brmm! brmm!

    Originally they started as a project album by Vince Clarke, who planned to have each song performed by a different singer, but Andy Bell did well enough in auditions to become get the job full time.

    Hi Richard. Interesting to read your knowledge of the band. I have scant knowledge of groups and bands but their Music and style ring my bells.Many great bands in that decade and my two sons then teenagers kept me a keen listener. Erasure did so many great hits

    Thanks I've been interested for a long time about the stories behind some musical acts, it helped that the series Rock Family Trees was around when I was getting more interested in music.

    I like that Sometimes song by Erasure and I think Vince Clarke is a genius! I was more around for Yazoo and even that really early Depeche Mode he was in. There were a lot of good groups with synths for awhile, Clarke was maybe the most talented, unless you count Kraftwerk. Human League, Midge Ure/Ultravox and OMD were other faves for me.

    While I was a bit young for that era first time round, I've bought quite a few CDs of artists from that era since then.

    Many 80s bands and groups I liked. Jon and Vangelis was and is a fave but not heard ant tracks of his for many years. Simply Red, Foreigner, Kool and the Gang, Shalamar and many more.

    Crackers International EP - we had that one.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!
