ABCs of My Vinyl Collection (Letter D, Part 6)

Taking a page out of Drew's book today. It's Friday... let's dance! I know what you're thinking. Do I really need a nine-plus minute version of this song? Yes. Yes you do. I suppose you could go with the six minute "Up Ducky Mix," but it's nice to have those three extra minutes to jump around the room before having to deal with the turntable. There's the added bonus of a poster included with the "Ducky" 12", but I wouldn't have had the nerve to put Pete Burns on my bedroom wall. My father was already looking at me with one raised eyebrow most of 1986. No apologies for this one. Loved it then. Love it now. Rest in peace, Mr. Burns.

"Brand New Lover" (The Dust Monkey's Love Bubble Club Mix)

Another character of our musical times lost this year. And I think you will find that many Dead Or Alive fans have decided to come out from the shadows with his passing. Brand New Lover is probably their greatest song and from an album full of strong shiny pop songs, Mad Bad And Dangerous To Know. This remix is pretty spectacular as well.

Pete Wylie was talking about Pete Burns when I saw Wah a few weeks back, apparently he was hard as nails.

Everyone who was anyone in that Liverpool scene of the early 80s has always had something good to say about Pete Burns, none more so than Bill Drummond. I find that to be hugely significant.

Another fine piece Brian.
