The Minimal Wave founder explores the extensive left-field electronic pop discography of Soft Cell duo Marc Almond and Dave Ball.
This month, Veronica Vasicka celebrates 40 years of the legendary new wave band Soft Cell. The English duo of Marc Almond and Dave Ball formed in 1978, and although it would be easy to play a whole show of Soft Cell, this show is geared towards their solo offerings, and often overlooked collaborative work. The idea is to provide a different context for this incredible band and present them in a not so obvious light. So sit back and get ready for two hours of Soft Cell and related music, as we start the journey with a great demo from 1979 called Red Tape, Sticky Tape.
