BBC Music have published a fantastic review of the new Yazoo live album ‘Reconnected Live’. Here’s an extract from the review:

‘These days, when borrowing from the 80s is practically an imperative, Yazoo are more relevant than ever. But who would have thought that a tour, recorded 25 years after they split, would make such essential listening?’

The Quietus have put an extract of a new interview with Vince online today, which outlines a few more details about the project he’s currently working on with his former bandmate, Depeche Mode’s Martin Gore. Here’s an extract;

“I emailed him [Martin Gore] and asked if he wanted to make a dance record. It’s going to be a long, long process. I’m emailing him my ideas and he’s emailing me ideas back and so we’re just compiling stuff that way, but it’s moving along so I’m quite excited about that.”

The Quietus are promising to put the entire interview, which mostly revolves around the release of the new Yazoo album ‘Reconnected Live’, online very soon. In the meantime you can read more about the Clarke/Gore project by following the link below.
