Blancmange, Hot Chocolate - In Concert-297 (LP, Transcription). Blancmange were less aware of pop with 'Irene & Mavis' which was recorded in 1979 and stopped right there. A six track EP, rather experimental, echoing Cabaret Voltaire more than Depeche Mode in their sound. Originally a three piece (at first called 'L360' or something) with drummer Laurence Stevens (strange enough, the guy with the same name designed later record sleeves for Eurythmics, I wonder).
Hot Chocolate formed in Brixton, London, England. Members of the group around Errol Brown included Tony Connor, Larry Ferguson, Harvey Hinsley, Derek Lewis, Pat Olive and Tony Wilson. In 1970 'Hot Chocolate', with Errol Brown as lead singer released their first record entitled, "Love Is Life" which reached number 6 in the charts. This was the start of a fifteen year career for the group who amassed a total of over 30 hits and also became the only group in the UK to have a hit for fifteen consecutive years. Blancmange, Hot Chocolate - In Concert-297 (LP, Transcription). In 1969 while demoing a slight reggae version of the John Lennon song "Give Peace A Chance" with a group of friends, Errol Brown changed the lyrics of the number but he was informed that he could not change Lennon's song without his permission! So a copy of the demo was sent to the Beatles record label, 'Apple', with fingers crossed. A new Hot Chocolate 'Greatest Hits' compilation released in October 1997 reached number 10 in the album charts the next month. Errol also performed live on 'Top Of The Pops' as the single reached the number 6 position. Hot Chocolate hit the charts again in February 1998 when EMI reissued the single, "It Started With A Kiss" and appeared on TOTP again.
Blancmange are an English synth-pop band formed in Harrow, London in 1979. The band were a duo for most of their career, composed of Neil Arthur (vocals) and Stephen Luscombe (keyboards). They came to prominence in the early 1980s releasing four singles that entered the Top 20 charts in the UK, such as "Living on the Ceiling", "Waves", "Blind Vision" and "Don't Tell Me", and they released three albums during that decade, Happy Families (1982), Mange Tout (1984) and Believe You Me (1985).
