The first three Wire LPs (the third of which, 154, is possibly the best post punk album ever. I've said so in another post about 9 months ago, but I can't be arsed to find it.)
The first three Soft Cell LPs
pretty much everything The Bronski Beat ever put out
and if that's not enough, two of the greatest singles ever put to wax- Soft Cell's "Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go" and 'Til Tuesday's "Voices Carry".
Did I mention he had the sixth Synclavier ever made?
So my point is that this guy is important, and you should to listen to one of the albums he produced right now. And if you're still curious, go look here for stories about making these awesome records. Here's a great quote:
"Wire said I should play synthesizers on the next album. I said, 'I can't move my fingers fast enough.' They said, 'If you don't do it, we'll get that Brian Eno in.' I said, 'OK.'
And in the interest of amusing you (and for those unfamiliar with these gems), I've got three classic Mike Thorne productions up for you to enjoy:
Wire- Blessed State
Soft Cell- Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go?
Til Tuesday- Voices Carry
