Plus Ça Change . . .

Ultravox

I spend Mondays wading through new tracks to play when I’m DJing that night. Skipping through some old stuff, I started listening to Ultravox’s ‘Ha!Ha!Ha!’ and I’m amazed at how contemporary it sounds again. There are so many current indie bands who are basically ripping-off ‘Frozen Ones’ or ‘Fear In The Western World.’

Still, I guess it makes a change from fucking the corpse of Gang Of Four.

I should point out here that I love both Gang Of Four and Ultravox. I just hate retro, whatever decade it decides to wallow in.
