Republica – Bloke (12″)

repubHaving a rest from all that Trance action now and a return to some normal synth-based Indie stuff. An early Republica release from 1994, before the success of ready to go. I liked them at the time , saw them live a few times and saw singer Saffron as a bit of a cockney Vamp. I liked their brand of “Cyber rock” with help from a duo of keyboards, Andy Todd and Tim Dorney (who was in Flowered Up). This track does benefit from a meatier “Extended Mix” , a swirly “Blame It On The Vodka Mix” and a vocal free, hard techno version , “Jack Daniels Mix” It is not as rocky as the one on the album but much more synthy in a good way 😉

Good to see them still doing stuff, check out their E.P. “Christiana Obey”
