Formed nearly 30 years ago, the award-winning songwriting duo of Vince Clarke and Andy Bell unleashed on the nation a succession of both influential and chart-topping pop anthems of the '80s, '90s through to today. Songs like "Oh L'amour," "A Little Respect," "Sometimes," "Victim Of Love," "Blue Savannah," "Star," "Chains Of Love,' 'Who Needs Love (Like That),' 'Love To Hate You,' 'Drama!,' "Always," and "Breathe," ensured a formidable presence on the singles charts complemented by chart-topping albums (including The Innocents, Chorus, and I Say I Say I Say) and the beginning of the worldwide Abba revival, "Abba-esque."
Be sure to pick up ANONYMOUS, the novel that Publishers Weekly hailed as a "well-crafted piece of experimental, voyeuristic fiction..." and "a winning jumble of the gritty, the raw, and the grotesque" at http://www.tanamor.com/p/anonymous.html.
