Sigue Sigue Sputnik – Love Missile F1-11 (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 7th March 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“Love Missile F1-11” is a song produced by Giorgio Moroder and performed by British synthpop band Sigue Sigue Sputnik released in March 1986 as the first single from their debut album Flaunt It. It was the band’s biggest hit, reaching #3 on the UK Singles Chart.

The bass line, repeated on their follow up single “21st Century Boy”, is similar to both Devo’s earlier “Girl U Want”, and Suicide’s 1977 track “Rocket USA”. Relying on gimmicks and sound FXs to create a futuristic atmosphere, the song features vocals with high echo and multiple sound effects. It begins with a sample from Stanley Kubrick’s 1971 film A Clockwork Orange where Malcolm McDowell’s character Alex, professes his fondness for a bit “of the old ultra-violence”.
