    I can't watch those lip synched videos. The Associates' appearances were terribly managed; the studio recordings versus the TV appearances is totally jarring for me. Party Fears Two is such a massive and influential song, for me. The Associates may very well have made more and sold more records over time if they'd never done a single promotion, IMO. I think the look on Alan Rankine's face says it all.

    What a great singer. I will make the time to listen to more by him and to listen more closely than before.

    I was sitting in Edinburgh's Waverley station one day in the 80s when someone got off the train from Dundee that I recognised (but I couldn't think where I recognised him from). I stared at him, he noticed me staring but stayed cool. It finally clicked that it was Billy MacKenzie.

    My friend was a student in Dundee around the same time, he often saw Billy walking his whippets.

    Here's something with Aungle that is presented real nicely.

    Here's a toast to what might have been. :)
