I’m in synth-pop state of mind this week, I spent last weekend listening to a gloriously queer combination of Depeche Mode, the Twins and some of the contemporary cats that try so hard to emulate the previous two groups glorious sounds.

.

.

Cats with names like Anoraak, College, and Futurecop! who spent all their time and money collecting keytars and tracking down music equipment from the era where synthesizers cost $20,000 and had less memory than a pocket calculator.

.

.

I will warn you, this mix will make a warm happy glow wash over your belly and nether regions, so wear a diaper before you step on the dance floor…

Kiss kiss, my retro kids.
