Blow Up at Ginglik
London, United Kingdom
Cult 80’s New-Wavers B-Movie return to Blow Up for a special one-off Anniversary Show for their single ‘Nowhere Girl’. Originally released in 1982, the single made the Top 10 in many European countries and reached #68 in the United Kingdom at the time.
In 2000 Uncut magazine released an album entitled Dawn of Electronica, a tribute to the early pioneers of electronic music, and alongside acts like Depeche Mode, Soft Cell, Art of Noise and Giorgio Moroder were B-Movie.
'B-Movie's Remembrance Day though it may might not have stormed the top 40 was quintessential synth pop: the lugubrious vocals and heroic gravitas, the stabbing keyboard as rhythmic device and air of icy melodrama/melancholia.'
Echoes of this Nottinghamshire quartet's melodic post punk analogue synth driven sound can be heard in many indie and dance acts of today; American electro-punk indie band The Faint reworked Remembrance Day into Southern Belles in London Sing on their Wet from Birth album, and B-Movie's most famous song Nowhere Girl was remixed by Adam Freeland for the Future Retro compilation.
B-Movie return for a one off show for Blow Up at Ginglik in Shepherds Bush on May 4th 2012, 30 years after the release of their most famous song. Expect all the classic early eighties post punk singles plus songs from their new EP, Echoes, out April 2012.
Please note doors tonight will be 8PM – arrive early for live bands!
