WAW: Wampire- The Hearse

The American indie group Wampire have released their debut album 'Curiosity' last year. The lead single from the album entitled "The Hearse" made us more curious to find out more about the band because of the retro styled 80's video which was directed by Raphaël Pfeiffer. Some say video of the year 2013, some recall Sweet Dreams and we think a great compilation of various 80's vids influences that really lights the New wave flame.

More great videos past, present, future in our Music box.

New Frankie Goes To Hollywood Compilation 'Frankie Said' Announced for February

Frankie Goes To Hollywood have announced the release of a brand new compilation entitled 'Frankie Said'. 'Frankie Said' (Deluxe Edition) is a compilation that combines - for the first time ever - the very best of the audio and video Frankie Goes To Hollywood created for ZTT between 1983 and 1987. From obscurity to infamy and back again in less than five years, perhaps more than any other group, Frankie Goes To Hollywood define 80's music. This compilation includes a series of cutting edge videos alongside BBC TV appearances - previously unavailable footage from Top Of The Pops and The Oxford Road Show '84 - and rare material from the Zang Tuum Tum archives. The release date is announced for mid February.
