EPISODE137 - Talking 80s Music with Martin Hennessy

This week we spent our second week in Germany to focus on synthpop/dance act Camouflage. It's easy to misunderstand a band once they have a big hit single. Some continue striving to create the same song over and over again to regain that ever elusive hit. Camouflage produced two strong albums during the 1980s and found themselves treading water as a duo only to reunite for some solid efforts recently. That is evidenced by our retrospective mix and we also featured a remix of "That Smiling Face," "Love Is A Shield" and "The Great Commandment 2001.) Believe the scholars, read the readings... they are worth investigating.

You often hear the phrase "one step forward, two steps back." This episode was our two steps back. The live sound in the previous episode was good. This week, there was no sound (except in the studio) when it came to sound effects and music. Luckily, we can always fix that in post-production but a real shame. Hope to have that resolved next week.
