From 1985 and the probably not so rare “Cryptic Cut” mix of “Election Day”. Arcadia was the Duran offshoot to rival Power Station. Rhodes, Le Bon and Taylor surrounded themselves with the highest studio tech and famous musicians to produce a more “electronic” sounding Duran Duran. It worked really well! The mix is basically a dub of the original (hence the No Voice label) and features the full Grace Jones speech (again in Vampire mode) the full Andy McKay (Roxy Music, Explorers) saxophone solo (amazing)
For people who like the normal version the 7″ is on the B-side along with the normal extended “Consensus” Mix
Another “Mini Movie” for a video below……..how pretentious, how very 80’s!
