flashback friday; thompson twins ‘hold me now’ + bonus babble track

i love me some t’twins.  so many great songs to pick from – how could i choose?  had to go to the top of course – ‘hold me now’ one of the greatest love songs ever.  a sweet choice for a rainy friday:

not many people know that after the demise of thompsontwins, tom bailey (who has one of the best voices ever) and alannah currie (she of the kick ass 80’s mohawk) created the ambient, trippy, world music influenced outfit babble.  babble released two disks the stone and ether.  this rare video for the song you take me off of the stone is brilliant.

come with me  don’t be afraid /  i am your muse and your grace / i am religion i am your shrine / i am the one that makes you cry / i am the one that took your soul / burned down the mansions that you never owned / i am the dark side / come onto me and i will come onto you

now, divorced – tom is working as international observer, a dub-influenced djoutfit & alannah is a multi-media artist and activist in london. 

there is a rumoured 3rd babble album in the vaults at warner bros. – i would love to hear what they were working on at the tail end of their relationship.
