Replacing ENTER. on the Space roster won’t be easy, but if anyone can do it, it’s Italian techno visionaries Tale Of Us.

ABC – “The Lexicon of Love 2” ( EMI/Universal) It was the gold-digger years at the start of the 80s: Punk had crumbled into hardcore and other kinds of games, new wave had staked its claim and somewhere in between blitz kids and poppers stepped on the catwalk and [...]
