“We want to take you Inside The Pleasuredome to explore Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Trevor Horn’s greatest work,” explains compiler Ian Peel. “So we’ve dreamed up the most ultra-deluxe box set possible. Can we make this dream a reality? Pledge via the website – and we can, and you can get this strictly limited edition visual, tactile and audio release in your hands.”
Superproducer Trevor Horn & Yes have announced a new album, Fly From Here, set to be released in July.
The current version of the band is minus Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman.
While Fly From Here will apparently be cape-free, it will include a 20+ minute epic prog excursion.
Horn and bassist Chris Squire re-discovered the track Fly From Here, which has never been recorded as a studio track.
“Chris and I were talking one evening about a song ‘Fly From Here’ that we never recorded,” explains Horn.
“I said I was prepared to spend two weeks with ‘YES’ recording that song. When I arrived in America to record it, I was taken prisoner by the band and only allowed my freedom again in return for producing the whole album. It was an offer I couldn’t refuse!!!” Continue reading →
Trevor Horn and ZTT Records have announced the return of The Buggles, on stage for their first ever full live gig, 30 years after their international #1 hit single Video Killed The Radio Star.
Trevor will reconvene the original Buggles line-up, including Geoff Downes (Yes, Asia) and Bruce Woolley (Camera Club, Grace Jones), to preform their début album, The Age of Plastic, in full.
No tour is planned, no DVD or live CD will be released. The Buggles, along with some guest artists, will perform live on stage for one night only, on 28 September 2010 at a West London venue.
This event is being put together to raise funds for London’s Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability. Active since 1854, the hospital has a simple but very important mission: to add years to life and life to years.
Further details – including surprise guests, support acts, and pre-show exclusives – will be announced soon. You can register for more info at Horn’s site.
