Pet Shop Boys – West End Girls (Benelux 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 14th September 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

“West End Girls” is a single by British duo Pet Shop Boys.

This edition is the original releases of “West End Girls” as produced by Bobby Orlando. It was a minor club hit when first released on indie labels in April 1984. The original production’s success was eclipsed by the fully re-recorded, Stephen Hague-produced version, first released in late 1985 on Parlophone and other EMI-related labels.

The b-side “Pet Shop Boys” is a mainly instrumental, hip-hoppish number that features barking dogs, howling coyotes, and other zoological sounds as well as repetitive “vocoderized” vocals that are largely unintelligible aside from the words “Pet Shop Boys.” The composers are listed as “Orlando/Tennant/Lowe,” Orlando of course being Bobby O himself.

I Start Counting – Letters To A Friend (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 29th August 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1984

-DjPaulT Recommended 12″

“Letters To A Friend” is the debut single by electronic music duo from North London. The band consisted of David Baker and Simon Leonard.

In 1984, the duo was signed by Mute and released its debut single, the quirky “Letters to a Friend.” “Letters to a Friend” easily distinguished itself from the glut of synthesizer-laden records from the mid-’80s with Baker’s distinctly British talk-sing style and the psychedelic feel of the keyboards. The single was produced by British producer and founder of Mute Records Daniel Miller.

I Start Counting gained a significant cult following in the U.K. and the U.S., especially among American suburban teens who were discovering Depeche Mode and Kraftwerk in dance clubs.

In 1985 the duo released their debut album My Translucent Hands.

SIDE A:
Letters To A Friend (Sunrise Mix) 8:04
Engineer – Trigger (6)

SIDE B:
