Monsieur Seb Turns 80 Two

Almost 7 years ago, I released the predecessor to this new mix of 80’s favourites, even forecasting it, although I didn’t expect it would take me 7 years to record it…

Well, here it is!

Where the first volume was more geared towards hits of the era — especially songs that played at L’Ombre Jaune, the club I hung out at in Québec City back in the day — this one is also favourites of the place, but more personal ones and more “historically” ranging (1979-1990, whereas the club was opened from 1983 to 1988). Let’s just say it’s the perfect companion to that older sibling!

Downloadable, 320 kbps version is here.

Monsieur Seb’s Daily Music Suggestion

Voice Farm - The World We Live In (1982)
Voice Farm - The World We Live In (1982)

Anorther blast from the past courtesy of my newly repaired SL1400: Voice Farm.

A rather obscure band (from my point of view, although I just learned that they had opened for Depeche Mode’s tour in 1990) from San Francisco, I have never heard from them since, even though Wiki tells us they were active until 1995.

One of their favourite tracks of mine was Lost Adults off their first album entitled The World We Live In.
