Are there any alternative sleeve shots of the Anvil Scott that you might include?

Really looking forward to these Scott , loved your work on the First Visage album

Any view on when you can release the tracklisting , looking forward to finally having the Anvil extended on CD (hope its included)

I liked the suggestion of you doing a 12" compilation along the lines of retro active but would imagine it would be a licencing nightmare

even if you did something like the Mood collection you did for some of the more obscure bands

Vision UK , This island earth spring to mind

all the best

I'm holding on to the track listing until it's confirmed what of the masters I requested can be found and are usable. There's really only 1 previously unreleased mix of a song that I want to ensure they can find before I announce everything. But The Anvil will have appropriate bonus material which will include all of the original 12" mixes.

Not a fan of Visage — but very much a fan of Rubellan Remasters, and excited to see two follow-ups to the label's biggest success story so far.

FanFan,

Just out of curiosity how can you NOT be a fan of Visage?

Visage is the apex where Glam, Bowie, Kraftwerk, Roxy Music, and Art Rock intersect to create New Romantic.

Visage is a super-group of talent; Midge Ure, Billy Currie, Dave Formula, John McGeoch,
Rusty Egan, Steve Strange, Barry Adamson, Richard Burgess and Gary Barnacle.

Fade To Grey is one of the top all-time greatest New Wave songs ever.
The Anvil is one of the most sophisticated, mature, and euphonic New Wave recordings ever made.

Hoping this will just be a civil disagreement, but — VIENNA strikes me as peak New Romantic, so there's at least a nod to one member of the band being discussed here. Visage mainly struck me as kind of hollow posturing for the VIP sections. It seems like a pretty rough contrast between that and the heartfelt musings of, say, The Associates and Soft Cell.

That's true. Even though the "New Romantic" period was a short lived period, I believe it was also a combination of style and sound. During that early time period, there was also that split of "New Romantic" and "Techno-pop". Human League & Soft Cell were this early anomaly. Even though they were using strictly synthesizers and drum machines, their songs and style didn't fall strictly into the category of "Techno-pop".

"New Romantic" had more of a "Bowie/Roxy Music" sound and style to it. More Glam/Art Rock typical bass, drums, guitar, and synth. Where as "Techno-pop" was more Kraftwerk mixed with a disco or Hi-NRG sound concerned with BPMs made for dancing. Most of the "New Romantic" bands evolved into Sophisti-pop and the "Techno-pop" bands evolved into "Synth-pop" or Hi-NRG.

The pinnacle of the "New Romantic" sound/recordings for me is Japan - Tin Drum. This is the "Avalon" of the "New Romantic" movement.
