    A Four-Way Battle.png

    A Flock of Seagulls
    vs
    The Buggles
    vs
    Heaven 17
    vs
    Visage



    4-Way Battle.jpg

    While I’m away there will be a monster of a challenge to find the ultimate synth-style song from these four bands. None of the bands have gone on to have a massive success, however, between them they have all celebrated some chart successes around the world. With only a handful of albums and many single flops, let us see who triumphs in the 4-way battle

    As always if you have 10 songs for each band I will include them in the final tally. If you have 10 from two bands and a mixture for the remaining two bands then that’s fine also.



    A Flock of Seagulls
    [​IMG]

    A Flock of Seagulls are an English new wave and synth-pop band originally formed in 1980 in Liverpool by Michael "Mike" Score (lead vocals, keyboards), his brother Alister "Ali" James Score (drums), and Francis Lee "Frank" Maudsley (bass), with their most famous line-up consisting of the Score brothers, Maudsley, and lead guitarist Paul Reynolds.

    The group had a string of international hit singles including "I Ran (So Far Away)" (1982), "Space Age Love Song" (1982), "Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)" (1982), and "The More You Live, the More You Love" (1984). They first became notable in the 1980s for their music video for "I Ran (So Far Away)" that received airplay on MTV during the Second British Invasion. The band won a Grammy Award in 1983 for their instrumental "D.N.A" (1982).



    The Buggles
    [​IMG]

    The group formed in 1977 in Wimbledon, South West London, and were signed by Island Records to record and publish their debut studio album, The Age of Plastic, which was released in 1980. The album charted in the UK, Canada, the Netherlands, France, Sweden, and Japan.
    The lead single for The Age of Plastic was "Video Killed the Radio Star", released in 1979. The song was a huge commercial success, becoming the 444th number one hit on the UK Singles Chart, spending one week at the top. It was also number 1 on fifteen other international record charts and sold more than five million copies worldwide


    Heaven 17
    [​IMG]
    Heaven 17 are an English new wave and synth-pop band that formed in Sheffield in 1980. The band were a trio for most of their career, composed of Martyn Ware (keyboards), Ian Craig Marsh (keyboards) (both previously of the Human League) and Glenn Gregory (vocals). Although most of the band's music was recorded in the 1980s, they have occasionally reformed to record and perform, playing their first ever live concerts in 1997. Marsh left the band in 2007 and Ware and Gregory continued to perform as Heaven 17.


    Visage
    [​IMG]

    Visage were a British synthpop band, formed in London in 1978. The band became closely linked to the burgeoning New Romantic fashion movement of the early 1980s, and are best known for their hit "Fade to Grey" which was released in late 1980. In the UK, the band achieved two Top 20 albums (Visage and The Anvil) and five Top 30 singles before the commercial failure of their third album (Beat Boy) led to their break-up in 1985.

    I'm only familiar with the name, although it looks more like a song title, like A Paler White Of Shade

    I hate Video Killed The Radio Star :lol: and I couldn't find any interesting Shader White Of Seagulls songs, my apologies!

    1. FADE TO GREY - Visage (it's awesome, it's everything)
    2. I'm Your Money - Heaven 17 (a kick-ass 1980s song not by the Pet Shop Boys!)
    3. Never Enough - Visage (I'm going to buy the album for this song)
    4. Designing Heaven - Heaven 17 (to be fair, I'm voting for the 1995 remix by Motiv8, but that doesn't count as a separate song)
    5. Let's All Make A Bomb - Heaven 17
    6. Dreamer I Know - Visage
    7. Come Live With Me - Heaven 17
    8. Penthouse And Pavement - Heaven 17
    9. Moon Over Moscow - Visage
    10. Do I Believe - Heaven 17

    I’m currently waiting in the barbers. This song just came on and I immediately thought of you.

    Slightly out of date editions of Auto Express, actually.

    Apparently, production of the Vauxhall Nova will end in 1993.

    And are you pleased with your new haircut? (how very "next season"!)

    On the upside, the Urban Cookie Collective will storm the charts!

    Many, many years ago, Fade to Grey was my favourite song ever and then I killed it by overplaying. I've never gotten over that, but, that said, its still up there (in spirit) anyway.








    My plan yesterday was to total these lot up and get on with our next round, but that all changed after reading something from you Willie and @Long Lashes. First I found myself totally immersed in Visage's album HEARTS AND MINDS because you said you were going to buy it on the back of the song NEVER ENOUGH. I never gave Visage any attention after the release of their third album and now I'm completely in love with their HaM album. I plan to do their last album soon, very soon.

    Not long after doing the Visage album, I found myself curious over Sam Fender after @Long Lashes posted a song of his in the 'favourite song' thread. I ended up playing the album twice and then again yesterday. It's bloody fantastic!

    YUNGBLUD has new material out this week and I've still not had time because you two introduced me to two new (and brilliant) albums.


    I plan to get the totals up on this round later today.
