Yazoo gives Lady GaGa and Katy Perry a run for their money… (14 September 2010)


From YazooInfo.com…

The Bay Area Reporter’s recent roundup of new releases included new material from Lady GaGa and Katy Perry but was much more positive about Yazoo’s ‘Reconnected Live’…

“Of course, Gaga and Perry could still learn a thing or two from the extraordinary Alison Moyet and her co-conspirator Vince Clarke, of Yaz. Reunited in 2008 for a concert tour after more than 20 years apart, working on their own musical careers (Moyet as a solo performer, Clarke as one half of Erasure), the pair picks up where they left off on the double-disc live set Reconnected Live (Mute). They perform trademark electro-dance tunes such as “Good Times,” “State Farm” and “Bring Your Love Down (Didn’t I)” before an enthusiastic audience. Less dance-oriented numbers “Nobody’s Diary” and “Only You” also make the transition to live performance well. Moyet sounds as genuinely thrilled to be there as her devoted fans.”
