"Listening to Blancmange obsessively. Probably the most under-rated electronic act of all time."

"Blancmange have been a part of the soundtrack to my life ever since 'Happy Families' was released."
John Grant

“They were one of my favourite Bands when I grew up as a teenager in the 80’s. Listening to their music walking around with my Walkman back then was adventurous. Mainly because I was already in love with the aesthetics of synthesisers and drum machines. But also because it was unusual pop music with an extraordinary energy that made it in the charts."
Roman Flügel
