Thread: you think you know Synthpop-Electroclash??

  1. #1


    Agree? Yes No

    Default you think you know Synthpop-Electroclash??

    You don't know s h * t until you see and worship the HUMAN LEAGUE!

    period.

    I saw them on Saturday night at the Troc in Philly - will see them again tomorrow night in NYC.

    They are the real deal! LIVE SYNTHPOP. Quality!

    Phil Oakey has such stage presence! And THAT voice! The girls still look HOT and sound great. Two live synth players, an electronic pads player and some guy who controlled the entire rack via the iBOOK.

    All the songs sounded genuine!

    they opened with BEING BOILED, followed by THE SOUND OF THE CROWD (imho the true electroclash theme! LOL)...

    they played all the hits you could possibly want to hear.

    if they come to your city... go see them!! they are one of the true great bands of our scene ever.

    I saw them opening night, Friday in DC and concur. I actually can't believe they were able to perform after that since Oakey lost his voice during the encore.

    Outstanding show, 5 songs from Dare, both of the women are as hot as ever. How could you want more?

    Are the League coming anywhere within 2 hours drive of Knoxville, Tennessee??? PLEEEEEASE???

    Absolutely, the #1 synthpop band for me ... the band who started it all for me back in 1981 with "Don't You Want Me". In my view, it's the #1 synthpop song of all time.

    I can't wait to see the League at Shepard's Bush in London on 18 December! It seems like an eternity from now, but I already ordered my ticket! Glad to have a preview. This will be my first time seeing Phil in person, so I am thrilled, even though he cut his hair. What a pity! So glad to hear they played "Sound of the Crowd." Fabulous song! You will always catch me dancing to that song. Interesting about Phil's voice because a friend of mine in London said Phil lost his voice during a gig there in July. Hope Phil is not losing the magic! 4.5 months and counting...

    I am hoping to see them...they were pretty much the band that started my love for electronic music back in the early 80's....when i was only 8!! i know that sounds crazy...but i actually bought the tape at a record store in ann arbor, mi...my mom even remembers me playing fascination, and later dare over and over

    Saw them in 1995, and again in 1998 and can't agree more. Missed the DC gig (damn it...) HL is "da bomb...." And yes, the gils look better than ever...

    Anybody here dig Alex Gold's "LA Today" with Phil on vocals this spring?
