EPISODE57 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

Ahhh... Yazoo. Well, that would be Yaz for us in America (mainly due to a blues record label of that name here in the U.S. when they released their debut.) But, I hold a soft spot in my heart for creative fusion. This short-lived duo consisting of Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke (previously of Depeche Mode and later with Erasure) cranked out two albums before calling it a day, despite successful sales. Last week, the duo decided to reunite for a 25th anniversary Reconnected tour (5 dates in the U.K.) in which they will perform some songs from their second album for the first time live. Anyhow, we went over their history, lightly touching on their previous and recent projects, as well as featuring a mix of all their singles (I'm sure you'll recognize a song or two) as well as the songs "In My Room" and "Mr. Blue."
