    Literally the one thing I know about them is Rob Sheffield enjoyed them in the 80's but not in the late 90's.

    The song in the OP is from 2006... hmmmm.... 

    But yeah, White Bread Black Beer featured prominently on Roger Mexico's 2006 SOMB AOTY list. He reminds me of Durutti Column in how he pretty successfully incorporated new stuff in his '00s music that shouldn't have worked on paper.

    Jasper, this is the '80s stuff if that's what you want to check out.

    I lived through (and continue to love) the '80s, and I can't tell you anything about Scritti Politti. Not even one song title.

    That one single, "Perfect Way," was a super catchy queer dancy Bronski Beat-Kajagoogoo jam. That's all I got.

    listen to Prefab Sprout instead.

    that is my advice on things of this nature as someone who also did not live through the 1980s

    Hilarious. I was just working out the sequencing for a new 80's mix last night that begins with a dub version of this song.



    Scritti Politti is awesome.

    Will do. In the meantime, here's a sloppy 30 minute mix i did a year ago with some 80's jams on it. I was high enough that this probably belongs in the Late Night Sound Experiments category, but whatever.

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bwk0OmxWPB4oS2p6UHV0ejBsckk/view?usp=sharing

    Tracklist:

    Unkle - In a State (DFA Remix)
    Doctor's Cat - Feel the Drive
    Chilly Gonzales - You Can Dance (Edwin Van Cleef Remix)
    K.I.D. - Don't Stop (Extended)
    Chaz Jankel - Number One
    Honom - Beach Runner (Original Mix)

    Great tracklist!

    I notice that the Liaisons Dangereuses LP has just been officially repressed for the first time in ages. I have a shitty bootleg from a few years back so I'll probably pick it up.

    Phixed have I ever urged you to listen to this? Apologies if it's a repost but I come back to this mix periodically and always think it's something you'd enjoy.
