David about working with Blancmange

I've known Neil for many years. We recorded Semi Detached at a wonderful studio, high in the Brecon Beacons.
After a good walk each morning we'd start work on the tunes.

Neil's musical approach is electronic and groove based, with his often dark and oftentimes surreal lyrics over the top.

He likes me to lock in with the machinery. I enjoy the discipline of it; minimalist groove guitarring.

Like to listen to a new version of "Jack Knife" with David on guitar and backing vocals (2016)?


The band in 2016 is...
  • Neil Arthur vocals
  • Oogoo Maia synth/vocoder
  • Adam Fuest sound/visuals

and sometimes David Rhodes on guitar and vocals.
