Yello – Goldrush (12″)

Okay sleeves up, shiny suit on and moustache stuck strategically over top lip. So begins the Yello fest!

I have loved these guys since I bought “Lost Again” on 7″ Gatefold and was impressed by the 3 other tracks that I bought their album. “You Gotta Say Yes….”

This was from 1986 and features Billy Mackensie on backing vocals. For ages I thought it was some female singer! Like most fans I prefer “Goldrush I” It’s very quick, impossible to dance to and has a similar beat to Thomas Dolby’s “Hyperactive”. I still have a soft spot for the live version of “She’s Gotta Gun”- very French!


A Goldrush I 6:33
B1 Goldrush II 6:13
B2 She’s Got A Gun (Live At The Palladium N.Y.) 4:09
