Clocking in at just over twenty minutes this Hot Tracks Medley is packed with some known but mostly forgotten gems. Like most all of the Hot Tracks medley’s, this one is cut and sliced into pure perfection.

He passed away on December 19, 1986, after contracting the AIDS virus.

The Normal – T.V.O.D./Warm Leatherette (US 12″)

Burning The Ground Exclusive 1988

 

“T.V.O.D.”/”Warm Leatherette” is a 1978 single by The Normal a recording artist name used by English music producer Daniel Miller, a film editor at the time, who is best known as the founder of the record label Mute Records. “T.V.O.D.”/”Warm Leatherette” was also the first-ever release by Mute Records in November 1978.

In 1977, Miller had split up with his girlfriend. A friend suggested that he read a book the friend himself had just finished. The book was Crash (1973) by J.G. Ballard. He felt that Ballard’s writing took him five minutes into the future; the novel was to be a major influence in the music he would produce as The Normal. Miller was disillusioned by the fact you needed to learn three chords to be in a punk band, so he decided to purchase a synthesizer. His thinking was that you only needed to learn to press one key on a synthesizer. After buying a Korg 700s synthesizer from Macari’s music shop in London, Miller recorded and released a single under the name The Normal. This was “T.V.O.D.”/”Warm Leatherette”. Both tracks were minimalist electronic songs influenced by the Crash novel. He wanted the sound of the recordings to be visual, like driving along a highway between large buildings then going through a tunnel. The single was recorded in Daniel Miller’s house using a TEAC four-track tape recorder and the Korg mini700s synthesizer.

Songs by The Normal have been covered and performed by many notable artists such as Grace Jones, Sleep Chamber, Chicks on Speed/Hell on a split-7″, Giddle and Boyd Rice, and in 2006 by Trent Reznor with Jeordie White and Peter Murphy. “Warm Leatherette” was performed live by Duran Duran in November 2007 as part of an electro medley during their 2008 tour, in support of their album Red Carpet Massacre.

Both songs were re-issued in the 1980s on a 12″ single by Mute Records.
