The Vels

Inquiries and discussions about new wave artists and what happened to them.

The Vels

Postby KYYX4ever » Thu Apr 08, 2004 3:14 am

Does anyone know what happened to these guys ? I think they were a female & male duo. Very poppy, very cute-sy. Did they only have one album, "Velocity" ? 2 songs off of it were played on the radio (well, the New Wave ones): "Look My Way" and "Hieroglyphics". They really had quite a unique, bubblegummy sound. Just curious.....thanks in advance !

check out that link. it tells you what bands they went on to after splitting. you should definately get their two albums. two solid dance pop albums in my opinion. i downloaded them off a guy who personally ripped the last month. decided to give it a listen yesterday. i was definately pleased. "tell me something" tjhe first track off the self titled being my fave track.

Has "Look my way" been released on any new wave compilation? I downloaded it on-line, but it is from an LP.

I've been looking for a source for these albums for years. "Secret Garden" has been stuck in my head for years. I don't do music downloading, not set up for that. If anyone knows a way I can get my hands on reasonable quality audio CD copies of both of these, let me know. I'd be willing to pay enough to make it worth someone's time to burn copies and send them to me. Make an offer please.
