I have been reliably informed wink that in the last hour Steve Strange was on Sky News being interviewed about the SB reunion and the New Romantics movement in general.

He also mentioned that negotiations are happening for the official re-releases of Visage and The Anvil albums on cd.

Please remember that this is Steve Strange you listening to. The same Steve Strange that claimed on a documentary that "Fade to gray" was his song. Strange by name...Strange by nature banghead

I know what your saying Duncan, and it was surprising to hear Steve say that especially so soon after the Cherry Red version of 'The Anvil'. Many of us still think better versions of 'Visage' and 'The Anvil' need to be released though.

Probably yes. From memory they had a player deck on the left, recorder on the right, and a silver panel in the middle with a green digital display.
If you tried to record a cdr made from that onto a minidisc, it would count as about 200 tracks per song, such as the way the data was converted.
