"It's like shagging the ex-wife"

Yazoo's reunion was once described by Vince Clarke as being "like shagging the ex-wife". Well, it's shagtastic at the moment. And tonight I'm off to see the pair of them perform on stage at London's Hammersmith Apollo. Oo-er missus.

The tour's already a couple of week's in. Here's a great review of the Manchester Apollo gig from The Guardian. And here's a neat little interview with Vince over on Side-line where he describes the weirdness of meeting up together with Alison in front of the press and how the "less is more" approach could be the direction he takes in any future songwriting collaboration with Yazoo. Oh, and don't worry. There IS an Erasure album coming soon.

Will there be a DVD?? I really bloody hope so.

I am so happy I finally got to see Yazoo perform live after all these years. They were amazing and the sound was so clean and bright, you could hear all the little bleeps and audio twiddles beautifully. I saw them in Brighton and Andy Bell was in the audience, we were so hoping that he would join Vince and Alison for the encore. Never mind, it was a great show and probably worth the £50 ticket price!

You lucky dog you!

Thanks for the news, and that's a classic post title/line by Mr. Clarke, is it not? I am still floored that the dude is straight. Up until like a month ago I assumed he was gay like Andy. That's wild because I've been a fan since "Chains of Love". But hey, it's all good, and I'm loving all the Yazoo press & stuff these days. Gimme more.
