I Heard A Rumour by Bananarama

“Sin is the nail in the soft wood of my soul…”

Here we have two of the three spinoff projects of Throbbing Gristle (the third – Coil – will make its first appearance in March), the man behind the hit single Mr. Vain before he started working as Culture Beat, Gary Numan in an unlikely collaboration (that should have been a much bigger single), a Violator-era B-side from Depeche Mode, a husband and wife duo who barely released one proper album, the godfather of Detroit techno, a band that embodied ’80s excess paired with the UK production team who did the same, an album cut by Propaganda’s lead singer which should have been a single, and Bananarama.
