Did you hear me scream?

Seriously, while I was riding the train, did you hear me? I saw this in the newspaper.

Oh, maybe I should get a little closer.

That's Vince Clark of Erasure. Wait you can't read what's printed under his photo?

Not close enough?

YAZ IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, that wonderful combination of Vince Clark and Alison Moyet who created Only You, Situation, Don't Go and Nobody's Diary are releasing a boxed set and going on tour. One of my first posts was discovering that a birth control pill was named Yaz.

Can you hear my heart beating?

But it appears that their tour will only be in England. So those of you who can, go see them. And tell me how wonderful it was.

Yazoo Reconnected: Live

Wed 04 June - Glasgow Clyde Auditorium
Sat 07 June - Manchester
Thu 12 June - Wolverhampton
Civic Hall
Sun 15 June - Brighton

what, you can't go to england for a concert? what kind of fan are you?

by the way, I've been hanging out with a lovely group of gay men from my show, and feel very much like a fag hag myself, these days. ;)

Yay for your fandom! ;-) And thanks for posting that clip - I love that song and this version SO rocks!

Jenn in Holland said...

Hahahahahaa! I can't tell, are you excited at all about this reunion? I was trying to pick up the nuance of the post and maybe you are just being too subtle or something....

Ya big Yaz fan freak!
I am with Maypole here, what kind of fan are you that you won't just nip over for the show? You know I would SO meet you across the channel. :)

For the record, I think you've just created a die hard fan here at our house. Andrew is begging for the video to be played over and over again. He's dancing up a storm here in the dining room!

When are we buying our tickets to London and can we get it to line up with a Simply Red show???????

I thought I heard a scream this morning . . . it was you!

Quite a big write up there it looks like--you must have floated to work.

Jenn said...

Yaz is so weird looking.

Did you scream out loud on the train?

Flower Child said...

what's a little flight across the pond?

will work on arranging a work trip via London this summer. FUN!

Jan said...

I've never heard of them but that was a cool clip. For your sake, I'm glad they are back. (((HUGS)))

Time to cash in some frequent flier miles and cross the pond!

Sister Sassy said...

OMG I loved him! I LOVE Erasure! OMG OMG OMG!

Mariposa said...

Are you still screaming?! Bec I'm hearing's your heartbeat!

Alex Elliot said...

I love Yaz!

chelle said...

hehe I love the photo close ups so that we could all fully understand the deeper meaning :)

Jerseygirl89 said...

Yay! Thank you so much for telling me - I love Yaz. They are so underappreciated.

How. Cool. We covered a lot of Yaz songs in my band. Ahh, good times.
