I can't remember if I tortured jjjusten and FB with this album when we were in middle school or not

basically "white dudes doing MPLS sound pastiche" was one of my favorite things in the world circa 1987 (see also: "Right On Track" by The Breakfast Club)

Pseudo Echo were I think better looking... Wa Wa Nee lead singer was kinda crosseyed.

I think I still have "Sugarfee" and "Stimulation"'s video clips on a VHS tape somewhere.

(not to mention Pseudo Echo. And Geisha. Oh dear god, its all coming back to me like a bad kebab)

there is something extremely disingenuous about the sugar free video in that it is basically a synth pop song but the video features not one bloody synth

I feel like that Sugar Free video is like 2 minutes of actual footage...it's like the same 4 shots of the band a bajillion times

There was a lot of that going round in the 80s iirc.

compiling the best of this stuff would be an 'interesting' arcival project - there must be a fuckin' ton of it

LOL Jim I <3 you for actually going and researching the phenomenom of 80s synth bands with guitars in the clips =)
