This blog is dedicated to one of the most underrated acts of the 1980s: Thompson Twins.

Caught the Retro Futura Tour tonight, featuring Tom Bailey of Thompson Twins, performing their hits for the first time in 27 years. I was never a big fan, but holy crap, what a great show! Songs that were always too electronic for my tastes, like “Lies” for instance, really swing when played live by a band. The rest of the acts—Howard Jones, Midge Ure, China Crisis and Katrina from Katrina and the Waves—weren’t slouches either.
