i'm older than all of you and it's all about the buzzcocks!

seriously: great singles band and great first three albums, growing up in public from one-chord wonders to arty post-punk pioneers in just two years. ok, forget about most of the later stuff but still.

and will always have soft spot for the fall, but not since their 80s-90s stuff.

Dunno. Would've been about 5/6 when Simply Red began their descent to the nadir of pop... dont have any memories of the early 80s at all apart from saving up Kellogs coupons for a 7" copy of Paul Young's 'wherever I lay my hat'.. wouldve been '84 i guess?

I saved up weetabix coupons and got a bananarama cassette. That's my only memory

Something about that soft focus expensively produced blue eyed soul that meshes perfectly with west coast rap music

A guy called Gerald is a funny one cos voodoo ray is perfect, platonic, but if you look at his oeuvre as a whole, it's nothing special

Juicebox was one of the most idiosyncratic and overlooked of hardcore/jungle labels, and most of his 90's output was stellar.

The BST LP stil stands up pretty well as does that Digital Bad Boy EP but 'energy' alone puts him up there. Besides Voodoo Ray there is Rhythm Of Life other great acid house tracks. There are few who managed to do house, techno and jungle well.

Reminding myself how good that label was. Somewhere between Reinforced & Ibiza. A serious contender.
