  1. Nice photo with a great colour palette. Not just leatherette but button backed leatherette! I could almost be back in the 70’s!!!
    We have a lot to thank Daniel Miller for. From those early seedling days of Mute who could have known how that little indie label would blossom into such a colourful catalogue of music. I suspect more people heard the Grace Jones version than the original.
    A bit of Daniel Miller pop trivia which you may or may not already know: The Silicon Teens were another early Mute release and were of course Daniel Miller masquerading as a band! I seem to remember for the press releases he created a pretend band? I don’t think the secret was terribly well kept at the time. Anyway here is a link: https://youtu.be/_p7Ub1NDTVg

    1. thanks a lot for the link. I did not come across the silicon teens (great name!) yet. will check them out now I guess :-)
      I think you are certainly correct with the Grace Jones version but also that one was probably not heard often enough or rather by enough people…
      Best,
      Peter
