Berlin Blondes

  • Berlin Blondes
  • Berlin Blondes (UK Odeon/EMI) 1980 

The name notwithstanding, this band hailed from Glasgow and played undistinguished, danceable hybrid synth/bass/drums clichés, occasionally adding colorful Sparks-like vocals for character. Mike Thorne produced the album with skill, allowing the music to be heard loud and clear. Too bad there isn’t much reason you’d want to.
