Blancmange Happy Families Too

Postby anemiccinema » Sat Nov 16, 2013 12:42 am

Does anybody have any idea where to get a copy of this other than the live UK shows. It is re-recordings of the entire original album. I live in the US way financially unable to travel overseas.I tried writing to Blancmange but have no answer now for 2 weeks. I am willing to purchase good 320 kbps or Flac versions of this. I just bought the Irene and Mavis 10" from Minimal Wave Yeah . Please someone help me locate this Happy Families Too new release. Thank you in advance.

Are you talking about the 2008 remaster from Edsel release.

Elvis: It's an updated and reworked version of Happy Families, titled "Happy Families Too ... The Story So Far".
For now it is only available on the current UK Blancmange tour.

Here are a few pictures from the official Blancmange Facebook page:

They're playing live near me this Saturday but unfortunately it's the same night Blue Zoo are playing so I'll be seeing them instead.

thanks,

took me awhile to find this place.

yahoo groups died out, and i don't use facebook,
so there was really no where for new wave fans to go.

i did a google search on blancmange, and ended up here.

looks like a lot of cool people are on this forum.
