Ratata – Something Else (French 7″)

Debut on here from the Swedish band Ratata. Formed by Mauro Scocco, Heinz Liljedahl, Anders Skog and Johan Kling in 1980, From 1983 the group was a duo consisting of Scocco (vocals, guitars) and Johan Ekelund (bass, keyboards) and went for the a more synth driven sound.

This is the English version with backing vocals by Anders Ericson. Synthpop with plenty of bangs and crashes. A funky little number and quite rare. Reminds me a bit of Thomas Dolby, the arrangements and horns.

The B-side is a short instrumental of the B-side, some nice sounds on here tying it to the release date of 1984.
