Truly an underappreciated mega-influence

Much like Peter Gabriel is vastly underappreciated (mostly due to his goofy-bad but classic pop songs such as Sledgehammer and Big Time for example), Thomas Dolby never got the props he so richly deserved both then and now. His influence permeates all segments of techno, trance, electronica, etc - it would not be an exaggeration to call him one of the Founding Fathers of these styles. This EP encapsulates Mr. Dolby's adventurous nature and never-ending willingness to pooosh the envelope. There are the great memories he inspires....a high school with STANDARDS, a good tan and a pair of Jams, a President that the world respected completely, skating when it was strictly the apparatus of the TRUE American Punk of the time - long before the neo-zoom-dweebies in baggy pants, sideways ballcaps, and their little brothers corrupted it forever. I must be getting old - these **%$% whippershnappers! Dolby during his prime (late 80s - another era like the 50s IMHO) had no idea that he was creating an entire subset that would flavor everything it came near, just as Bjork has... the real genuises never get the credit they deserve - mainly because they rarely sell out. Thats in STARK contrast to todays "alternative" and basically all contemporary music (formed in a cultural vacuum - just look at the kinds of vapid non-talented factory-made "stars" the kiddies prop up - selling out is a PREREQUISITE! As far as this EP goes, its worth a LOT more than 10 bucks for many reasons: consistently SICK beats, a palpable and unique mood in each variant, and master craftsmanship. SEE: Bjork, just about any Peter Gabriel song that has never or very rarely made it to the airwaves, Peter Murphy's "Deep". Enjoy!

A personal touch

Having seen Thomas Dolby live in a tiny venue (there might have been 150 people there, tops), I was fortunate enough to have heard the story behind this song from the man himself. This song was inspired by a faded photo of a man in British naval uniform on a relative's wall that Dolby had passed by every time he visited... one day he asked "Who is that man?" Not all of Mr. Dolby's uncles survived World War II. When a song has deep meaning to an artist, it shows.

The Big Space Nut Boogie Daddy is Back

Bow to the father of Strange Pop! This collection of remixes brings him to a dance floor of 2007. This giant of wacky but serious songwriting has been gone since a long time, due to his explorations in the world of software making. Thanks God he is back writing notes and not codes. Very unique musical sensibility with great sense of melody and beat making. They just don't make them like this anymore! More music Thomas, we need more music!

Biography

Born: October 14, 1958 in Cairo, Egypt

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Though he never had many hits, Thomas Dolby became one of the most recognizable figures of the synth pop movement of early-'80s new wave. This was largely due to his skillful marketing. Dolby promoted himself as a kind of mad scientist, an egghead who had successfully harnessed the power of synthesizers and samplers and used them to make catchy pop and light electro-funk. Before he launched a solo career, Dolby had worked as a studio musician, technician, and songwriter; his most notable work as...
