Hello everyone, glad I found this site/forum it's awesome.

I've actually not been listening to Ultravox for too many years but nowI got all their albums and they are for sure one of my favourite groups. I prefer the albums released when Midge Ure arrived, I like that sound better.

Otherwise im much stuck in synthpop from the 80īs, my favourite band is Pet Shop Boys, others I enjoy are Depeche Mode, New Order, OMD, Alphaville, ABC, Duran Duran, Flock of Seagulls, Duran Duran, Electronic, Erasure, Human League, Scotch, Soft Cell and of course Visage..puh that was quite a list and im sure I forgot many bands. Out of the genre I enjoy Queen, Babylon Zoo, Manic Street Preachers and some others.

I live in Sweden and im a football maniac, my english favourite team is Bradford which I have seen on Valley Parade a few times smile

Well that's all for now I think

Hi there and welcome. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="cool.gif" />

Like your list of bands although I can't recall a band named Scotch, who were they?

If you ever feel the need to check out some newer synthpop, then check out the reviews area on www.synthpop.net which is where I do the occasional review.

Otherwise enjoy your stay and feel free to contribute to anything that catches your eye.

scotch were an infamous italo-disco project by two guys from italy ( of course wink ) , who had their biggest hit all over europe ( hm ... maybe not in the u.k. then !? confused2 ) in 1984 with "disco band" , a song that starts with some coughin' , which became the "trademark" of it , as ev'rybody - incl. me - only remembers the song because of that coughin' !!! nutjob

here's a link to their discography : http://www.discogs.com/artist/Scotch
