The Dream Academy ‎– Love (US 12″)

New Age Dream House and the final single release from The Dream Academy (Nick Laird-Clowes, Gilbert Gabriel, and Kate St. John)

(The band did “Life In A Northern town” back in 1985 over here.. )

A cover of a John Lennon classic given a World Music twist. Much sort after remixer, Junior Vasquez does the first 2 mixes, Kevin Gilbert provides a couple of quite good dub version including some Whale noises and Church bells.

To finish off their is the acoustic protest song, “Mordechai Vanunu” about an Israeli whistleblower who spent 18 years in prison after revealing the truth about the country’s secret nuclear weapons. Didn’t see that coming, what a powerful song!
