Based on real life events, Calendar Girls the Musical by Gary Barlow and Tim Firth is the story of a group of ordinary ladies who achieved something extraordinary. The production received fantastic five star reviews in London’s West End & the Original Cast Recording is now being released by Decca Records, just in time for Mother’s Day. The album features the 18 tracks featured in the musical as well as versions of three tracks, featuring Gary Barlow.
Former Ultravox leader John Foxx continues to explore his minimal, electronic pop on THE PLEASURES OF ELECTRICITY. Taking a cue from Kraftwerk, one of Foxx's most obvious stylistic touchstones, PLEASURES is a streamlined monorail of lock-step computer-generated beats and wiry synthesizer melodies with an equal emphasis on dark, atmospherics and energized, danceable rhythms.
