It's Friday . . . Let's Dance



I think that this may be the last in this short series as if interest can be interpreted by downloads then there is a lot of apathy out there for this series. Today's track comes from 808 State, "world international blagging team" and another mob from Manchester. There is no way of getting away from the second wettest city in the UK at the moment in blogland. Founding member Martin Price also owned the Manchester record Shop, Eastern Bloc. Gerald Simpson (A Guy Called Gerald)was another original member of the team but left to do his own thing. They first came to prominence the year prior to Ibiza 90 when Gary Davies, a daytime Radio 1 Dj in the UK, heard the group's 2nd single Pacific State being played all over Ibiza, came back to the UK and started flogging it on radio show ensuring that it entered the UK charts reaching number 10. The group were part of the package of DJs and bands that invaded Ibiza for the fortnight of the Ibiza 90 gathering playing in the main clubs on the Island  In Yer Face wasn't actually released as a single until the following year.

Have a good weekend people
