Landscape ‎– It’s Not My Real Name (Remixed Version) / Manhattan Boogie-Woogie (US Promo 12″)

Image result for landscape manhatten boogie woogie

A rare bit of wax from the ’82 Album “Manhattan Boogie-Woogie” which saw them try to move in a more commercial direction whilst retaining all the tech.

“It’s Not My Real Name” sounds like a cross between Classix Nouveau and Human League. The bass sound is great and the extended version (by David Carpin) benefits the song, adding a bit of cowbell and crashes whilst playing around with the great bassline and extends the shrill lyricon.

The B-side has the shrill wind synthesizers and a hidden political message. How hard hitting are those patented Simmon’s ?

One thought on “Landscape ‎– It’s Not My Real Name (Remixed Version) / Manhattan Boogie-Woogie (US Promo 12″)”

  1. I was never a big fan of “Manhattan Boogie-Woogie,” but I will arm in the trenches to defend “From The Tearooms Of Mars…To The Hellholes Of Uranus.” There were lots of attempts to be the British Kraftwerk, but I think that one hit closest to my mental ideal. Good lord! I do believe I bought this several years ago. Should spin it, eh?
