Cover of Passing Images

From Musique Machine:

Down In June – Covers…Death In June
I’ll have to admit I was rather doubtful when I first heard about this project; cover collections or tributes are often very hit and miss and more often than not misses. But I’m happy to report this is a hugely successful through out with Down in June really making these track’s very much their own and mixing in all manner of often surprising musical genres along the way too.

Hot Gossip – Geisha Boys & Temple Girls
Hot Gossip were a dance troupe/ experimental Synth pop collective from the late 70’s / early 80’s. This is their debut album from 1981 is a quirky at times quite electro noise lined and experimental slice of synth pop making and electronica- which had a big input from both Martyn Ware and Ian Marsh(ex Human League, Heaven 17, ect).

Frode HaltliPassing Images
Passing Images finds respected Norwegian Accordionist Frode Haltli been joined by noise maker,vocalist & modern composer Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje, Trumpet player Arve Henriksen (supersilent & solo) and Voila player Garth Knox(Ensemble Intercontemporain).
