808state live at the New Music Seminar, New York, USA, 1990


Report from the Sounds, 4 August 1990:

New York, USA

Support comes from 808 State who jetted in for about 24 hours to do the show. Making inroads on the US dance charts, they opted for a full frontal attack - less on tape and more by flesh they hammered their sound home. Hell, Graham Massey has even taken to some kinda Springsteen-style stadium cavorting, burning plenty of rubber on the stage with axe sampler heroics. 808 State oozed energy, plenty of good vitamins burning off that jetlag.
