Burn Bright / The Dancing Marquis - 7" Ltd Edition - Marc Almond

Burn Bright / The Dancing Marquis - 7" Ltd Edition




Earlier in 2013, Marc Almond realised the ambition of a lifetime when he attended the first of a few recording sessions with the legendary record producer Tony Visconti, famous for his work with David Bowie, Hazel O'Connor, T-Rex, The Moody Blues and Morrissey among many others.  

The first stunning results of their unique collaboration are to be heard on this Double 'A' side single 'Burn Bright' / 'The Dancing Marquis'.  

In celebration of the union of these two prodigious talents, Strike Force Entertainment have created a highly collectable limited fans edition. A 7" purple coloured vinyl single in a beautifully designed gatefold sleeve. This vinyl edition also contains the two tracks on a CD single housed on the inside of the gatefold sleeve.  

While both tracks are produced and mixed by Tony Visconti, he also arranged the strings on the hearteningly buoyant 'Burn Bright' with Martin Mc Carrick (Siouxsie And The Banshees, Therapy?) arranging the strings on the othertrack, the reflective 'The Dancing Marquis', a song that Marc Almond wrote 'with Henry Paget 5th Marquess of Anglesey in mind'.  

Demand will be high for this highly collectable limited edition of 1,000 copies.

Live At The Hacienda
The first ever DVD to feature one of the classic 1980's pop bands - Blancmange.

Consisting of Neil Arthur (vocals, guitar) and Stephen Luscombe (keyboards), Blancmange formed in London, England, in the late '70s. The band received immediate recognition when they sent the song "Sad Day" to DJ Stevo, who added it to a compilation LP of then-unsigned new wave groups including future alternative icons like Depeche Mode and Soft Cell. Drummer Laurence Stevens was a member of the band for a short while, but they eventually replaced him with a drum machine.

Signed to London Records, Blancmange released their first two singles, "God's Kitchen" and "Feel Me," in 1982. Both records were hits in the U.K. Later that year, Blancmange's debut album, Happy Families, sold well on the strength of their first Top Ten hit, "Living on the Ceiling," which peaked at number seven in Britain. "Living on the Ceiling" was the beginning of a string of U.K. smashes; "Blind Vision" and "Don't Tell Me" both reached the Top Ten in England. Their cover of ABBA's "The Day Before You Came" was actually even more successful than the original, peaking at number 22. Blancmange's 1984 LP, Mange Tout, further established the group as one of Britain's most popular electronic artists.

"Live At The Hacienda" features a classic 1982 concert from the band at Manchester's world famous Hacienda Club. Amongst the tracks featured are UK chart hits "God's Kitchen / I've Seen The Word", "Living On The Ceiling", "Waves" and "Feel Me".
