Soft Cell – Low Voltage Mix (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on June 28th, 2012


Euro-Mixx is a US based label that had formerly released bootleg singles under the name ON-Usound. This 12″ features a nicely done Megamix of Soft Cell and Marc Almond. Included in the mix are the hits “Say Hello Wave Goodbye”, “Torch”, “A Lover Spurned”, “Tears Run Rings” and the mega hit “Tainted Love” and more.

Soft Cell are an English synthpop duo who came to prominence in the early 1980s. They consist of vocalist Marc Almond and instrumentalist David Ball. The duo is most widely known for their 1981 worldwide hit version of “Tainted Love” and platinum debut Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret. In the UK, they had ten Top 40 hits, including “Bedsitter” (#4), “Say Hello, Wave Goodbye” (#3), “Torch” (#2), and “What!” (#3), and also had four Top 20 albums between 1981 and 1984. The duo split in 1984, but reformed in the early 2000s to tour and released a new album in 2002. Their songs have been covered by various artists including Nine Inch Nails, David Gray, Nouvelle Vague, Marilyn Manson and A-ha. Soft Cell’s track “Memorabilia” earned recognition for the band as pioneers of techno style. The duo have sold 10 million records worldwide.

    Ooh! Another MEGAone!
    Was a huge Soft Cell fan in the early 80s.
    Tainted Love was the #1 Best Selling UK Single in 1981, and they followed it with those 4 Top 4 hits you’ve mentioned. Quite a feat back in the days to have such a string of five successful singles.
    Very interested to hear this MGM as these songs are the easiest to put together.
    Thanks Paul for this series.
    You’ve made us all MEGAhappy!

    Soft Cell are one of my favorite early 80’s bands. This megamix was really done pretty well. I hope you enjoy listening to it.
