YAZOO - RECONNECTED LIVE

RELEASED 27th SEPTEMBER 2010 ON MUTE RECORDS
2xCD, LCD AND DOWNLOAD

˝As if they never partedţ Ă The Times

˝As they breathed new life into their short but immaculate back catalogue, Clarke the glacial controller, Moyet the bringer of warmth, their pioneering contribution to pop music could be heard in every song.ţ Ă Daily Telegraph

˝Clarke has unobtrusively retooled the band═s music for the digital age, making their vintage 1980s synthesizer ditties sound crisp, fluid and timelessţ Ă ˝Performing on a minimalist stage of high-tech steel and neon, Moyet slipped easily into turbo-throated blues-diva modeţ Ă The Times

YAZOO release RECONNECTED LIVE on 2xCD, LCD and download on 27th September 2010.

RECONNECTED LIVE documents one of pop═s most anticipated tours: Vince Clarke & Alison Moyet reunited for the first time in over 25 years. The Times said: ˝Clarke has unobtrusively retooled the band═s music for the digital age, making their vintage 1980s synthesizer ditties sound crisp, fluid and timelessţ while The Guardian noted, ˝Yazoo═s first tour in 26 years finds the chemistry behind their smash hits unchanged.ţ

RECONNECTED LIVE, from summer 2008, features classic tracks from Yazoo═s albums ´Upstairs At Eric═s═ and ´You And Me Both═, including Only You, Don═t Go and Situation plus tracks from ´You And Me Both═, such as Nobody═s Diary, performed live for the first time ever.

The joyous, unlikely coming together of Vince Clarke, who had just left Depeche Mode, and Alison Moyet lasted for only 2 albums, saw them originally only performing only 24 concerts worldwide, but they left an indelible mark on pop. Yazoo released ´Upstairs At Erics═ in July 1982 then parted company just 12 months later on release of the second album ´You And Me Both═, which reached Number 1 in the UK.

Speaking prior to the Reconnected tour, Vince Clarke said: "It's been really good going back to these songs after such a long while. Many of them have never been played live. ŠI'm looking forward to performing them with Alison for all the fans who've enjoyed our music through the years but never had a chance to see Yazoo in concert"

And Alison Moyet said: "Playing this material live is not about revision for me, it is about finishing something we started Ă writing, recording, performing. Three parts of a whole. A salmon cycle. It═s like going home.ţ

˝When the pair hug each other at the end, it feels as though the audience want to join in.ţ The Guardian
