TRACKLIST W/ NOTES BY PHIL & PAUL AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST

 

1. “DR MABUSE” by PROPAGANDA
This was the first track on ZTT records that we heard and
never looked back.

2. “LET THE MUSIC PLAY” by SHANNON
One of the best dance floor tracks ever. (05.02)

3. “SITUATION” by YAZOO
Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet. What a team, song after song everyone’s a winner. (08.30)

4. “LOOKING FROM A HILLTOP” by SECTION 25
Our alternative Factory Records 12 inch favourite. (11.24)

5. “DEAD EYES OPEN” by SEVERED HEADS
The band that taught us that electronic music can be dirty, beautiful, haunting and funny all at the sam time. (16.03)

6. “KOYAANISQATSI” by PHILIP GLASS
We chose this particular track of Philip Glass from the film Trilogy which made a huge impression on us. He was our first introduction to “minimal music” and “System music” and was not afraid to use a synth. (19.20)

7. “LOGOS PART ONE” by TANGERINE DREAM
What we don’t know about magic mushrooms and Tangerine Dream ain’t worth knowing. (22.45)

A big “moment in love”for us. Trevor Horn and Anne Dudly, electro UK style. (28.05)

9. “MAN MACHINE” by KRAFTWERK
We got introduced to Kraftwerk by our big brother Dr Gary with Autobahn. The Man Machine album is a personal smoking favourite. (38.28)

10. “AL NAAFYISH” by HASHIM
Love love love Electro music in the old style meaning. This made a huge impression and pushed us to buy our first drum machine. (41.45)

11. “NEW LIFE” by DEPECHE MODE
The first song ever video recorded on our parent’s Ferguson VHS machine. (47.58)

12. “DON’T STOP ME” by ORBITAL
We thought it would be good to pop this Orbital track in as Audio Where’s Wally of influences on us. (51.40)

13. “THEME FROM THE SAINT” by ORBITAL
In Honour of the great Sir Roger Moore here is our cover version of the Saint Theme Tune. (58.12)
