Phwoar! More Erasure


ERASURE, the perennial Rolling Stones to the Pet Shop Boys's Beatles, are popping out next week with 20 more of their top synth-pop singles.
The duo of Vince Clarke and Andy Bell have been mastering their craft since 1985 - and their original best of collection was released 17 years ago.
In fact the first disc of this double CD is simply the original Pop! album - which contains humdingers such as Blue Savannah and Love To Hate You - and this has been augmented with 20 more tracks, bringing their story up to date.
The top new tracks here are the ballads, such as opener Always and Stay With Me, although the upbeat quota is filled, and there are covers such as Steve Harley And Cockney Rebel's Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me).
So if you like a bit of Erasure, double deck out your collection with Total Pop!.
