Blancmange

@The Old Market 2/6 19:00

This electronic band, who were regulars in the charts during the early 80s, formed at the beginning of the burgeoning post punk scene in 1979, making tape loops and experimental music using kitchen utensils before blossoming into a pop phenomenon. The duo, consisting of Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe, got their first exposure on the Some Bizarre Album compilation alongside Depeche Mode and Soft Cell, which led to them being signed by London Records. In 1982 they released their breakthrough single Living on the Ceiling, which reached number 7 in the UK charts and became an international hit. This was followed by three more Top 20 singles before they amicably went their separate ways in 1986. In the late 2000s they reformed and released their fourth album in 2011. This is the first ever Best Of tour that the band has embarked on, so expect all the hits and more.
