In 2002 ,early 80s synth poppers and later stadium rock gods, Depeche Mode released the album ‘Exciter’ .
Dream On , I Feel Loved and Freelove preceded fourth single and final single ‘ Goodnight Lovers’ . Released on CD single and 2 x 12″ vinyls .
Special to collectors was the red vinyl (pictured) 12″ which is pretty hard to find against the standard black version .
An acoustic version of When The Body Speaks and various other remixes make up the track listings spread over the formats.
A promotional sampler from ‘The Mirror’ featured the video ROM of Goodnight Lovers..
Following his hugely successful UK acoustic tour in November, Paul has announced his first live show in Japan since 2000. Accompanied by his guitarist Ben Sink, he will be performing in Tokyo on the 7th March 2019.
Announcing the gig Paul said…
“Having frequently visited Japan during my time in Mansun I am absolutely delighted to be returning to Japan to perform with my guitarist Ben Sink. I have always said to the Japanese fans who still follow me it would be a dream to return, and that dream has now become a reality.
I will play both songs from my solo career and Mansun songs and I’m looking forward to seeing fans who I have not seen for a long time and also to see new fans who have become fans of my solo career or discovered Mansun since the band’s split. See you at the gig! Paul”
Tonight is David Bowie’s thirteenth studio album and third entry into the 1980s.
Spawning three UK singles : Blue Jean /Tonight/Loving The Alien , it reached number one in the official album charts.
A ‘rushed’ album according to David as writing on tour was really not an ideal option and was received with critical reception.
I’ve grown to love this album over the years with the highlight for me being the Iggy Pop duet finale ‘Dancing With The Big Boys’.
Released on LP/cassette and later CD formats.
Blondie release this six track 12″ EP to tease the pending 2019 box set of albums and rarities.

On arrival at Bournemouth just after our hotel check- in , we just took a wander over to the Pavilion.
Well the timing couldn’t have worked out better as Tony exited the stage doors for a breather.
Without missing a trick , my wife and I managed a quick hello and and I got my album signed by the big man.

This was our first time seeing Tony perform live and he did not disappoint.
His vocals were pitch perfect accompanied by a superb band as they breezed through Spandau hits , Tony’s solo tracks from his new album ‘Talking To The Moon’ and a few cover versions including a moving tribute to the late Freddie Mercury with Queen’s ‘Somebody To Love’.
It was clear that Tony had the crowd hanging on his every line with classics like ‘Instinction’ and ‘Gold’ entwined with mellower moments with the beautiful ‘Skin Deep’ and the autobiographical ‘What Am I’
Waiting fans outside afterward were treated by a quick but genuine heartfelt greeting from the man himself before disappearing with a wave in his waiting 4×4.
A fantastic night of entertainment including the talent of Damien Wilson who was also greatly received.
