British Electric Foundation – Music Of Quality & Distinction, Vol. 3: Dark


B.E.F (British Electric Foundation) is the indulgent collaboration of an experimental collective of artists decadently exploring their outer limits, illuminated by the master of ceremonies and pioneer of synth pop himself  – Martyn Ware.

The third in B.E.F’s Music of Quality and Distinction’ series ‘Dark’, as the title would suggest, is a unique re-working of covers from stars who shine brightly, dimming the lights for personal takes on twisted torch songs. Boy George performs Iggy Pop’s ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’, Kim Wilde takes on Stevie Wonder’s ‘Every Time I See You I Go Wild’, Kate Jackson of The Long Blondes sings ‘Picture This’ originally performed by Blondie, Shingai Shoniwa from The Noisettes sings The Beach Boys ‘God Only Knows’ with plenty of other gems to discover from the likes of Green Gartside (Scritti Politti), Andy Bell and Glenn Gregory.
