Hello everyone!

Nice to see the forum and site as busy as ever. I've been busy for a while working on the new Electro 80\'s website! You may remember us from the covers comp last year (sorry things got a little heated with the other band members over that, they're just very passionate about their work! :p ) I thought the quality of the entries during that competition was excellent, if anyone enjoyed our version of Vienna, there are more examples and videos of us live on the new site! I've put a lot of work into the site, although it's not quite as professional looking as this one, it's not bad for a beginner!! check it out and let me know what you think - it's essential veiwing for 80's fans!

Thanks

Ben.

Thanks Sleepwalker, Strangely enough - we want to do more Ultravox tunes and "Sleepwalk" is very high up on the list...

Top Ultravox considerations by Electro 80's

1. All stood still
2. Sleepwalk
3. The Voice
4. Hymnn
5. Reap the Wild wind
6. The Thin Wall

The band aren't really considering The thin Wall, it's just me on my own really, but I thought if I could drum up support on here they might go for it!

Any suggestions from users of the EV forum are more than welcome :p

Electro, why don't you check out this site...
http://www.ultravoxtribute.co.uk/

Visit the LOUNGE and listen to the audio files of MONUMENT playing live. There are 15 excerpts of Ultravox songs from the Foxxvox era as well as the 80's, when Midge was frontman.
You may get one or two pointers for your own set.
Cheers. Ash

It's always been a fave of ours (MONUMENT) live, not easy to do really with live accoustic & electronic drums, but the end result is well worth it wink

I reckon it would sound great with acoustic drums... needs synth bass though!

I've been to your site Sleepwalker and it looks great, love the graphics (takes me back!) I'll have to try and catch you live at some point!

I reckon you've got the Ultravox thing nailed... We only do "Vienna" at the minute, I think one more synthy one and that'll be enough "Vox" for us.

Yes... a "Currie" would be good... but I don't want to get too "Canned" as I'll spend too much time at the "Ure-rinal" Hehehe-oh god, sorry guys... that was bad!
