In 2019 I released one of my most successful Alien Skin albums, P.O.P. POP, and the first for quite a while on a record label, ScentAir Records, Moscow.

We had many support acts during our 30 […]

[Reading time 160 seconds] Nu men Nu women. Futuristic, post-human ’70s electronics turned into the synthpop of the early 80s. (…in this post I conclude what I began in the first. Find part one here). Radio hits like “Mad World” (Tears for Fears), “Love is a Stranger” (Eurythmics), “Don’t Go” (Yazoo), “Enola Gay” (OMD) had […]
