3 Dec 71 in Watford, England
did you get into 808:
1989 - after getting fed up of waiting for new Kraftwerk
& Art Of Noise material, I needed something 2 change
my life. So whilst watching Top of The Pops I see 808 performing
Pacific - WOW that is a tune that blew me away, picked up
90 & was mad 4 it.
freaked out moments:
Playing the Extended Pleasure EP and hearing Cubik for the
first time .... (not forgetting G-MEX 91 & backstage
at Middlesex University Gig!)
