Soft Cell – What! (12″)

softycellStill in ’82 and it’s amazing that Soft Cell were coming towards the end of their chart success with this track. As it says on the back sleeve.

“one nice pop song – from two nice people”

An electro tinged cover of the Northern Soul Classic by Judy Street this is given the full, expanded treatment by Mike Thorne on the 12″ Version.

A long version of the instrumental “….So” has all the available synth sounds from the year and featured on Tiga’s “DJ Kicks” album compilation in a speeded up version. This one has lots of different parts and just shows the skill of Dave Ball as a producer and musician.
