I was very excited this week to download Electronic’s first album to my iPod (available via Amazon.com, not iTunes). It was my first online music purchase – before then, I was just listening to old CDs that I had ripped to iTunes. And truth be told, that purchase was just to replace the CD which I lost – or loaned – many years ago.
[For the uninitiated, Electronic was a wonderful early 90’s band bringing together Bernard Sumner of New Order and Johnny Marr of The Smiths. Neil Tennant of The Pet Shop Boys also sang on several tracks of their first album.]
But alas, as the iTunes gods would have it, no Electronic in this week’s Weekly Mix Tape. Here they are – ten songs, shuffled not stirred, from my iPod. Have a great weekend!
