Never Never

I was watching Synth Britannia on BBC 4 last night. I missed it the first time around. I have to admit that I wasn't a big fan of a lot of it. I really liked Gary Numan and John Foxx but could take or leave most of the rest.

I never understood what all the fuss was over the Human League and Depeche Mode. As for the fathers of it all, Kraftwerk I just never got it, I have always found their music boring.

Here is one synth pop track that I have always loved. Although I've had to reappraise my view of the vocalist on the track over the past couple of years coming to the conclusion ever the singer of John Peel's favourite song can be a cock.

The Assembly - Never Never

It was a good program- it made me re-evaluate early OMD, which takes some doing. I loathed them first time round, but thought Enola Gay sounded great.

I loved some OMD, Electricity, Maid Of Orleans and especially Enola Gay and Andy McClusky is responsible for one of the tracks I hate to admit to liking, Whole Again by Atomic Kitten.
