POEME ELECTRONIQUE The Echoes Fade 7"
POEME ELECTRONIQUE … oh didnt we all dream of finding their only original 80's vinyl release, The Echoes Fade / VOICE 7” single (Carrere Records, 1982) some day? Well, most of us didnt and probably wont, and finding the members was equally hard, but thanks to J. Langes investigative nature (hey, youre great!), Dave Hewson, the composer in the group was finally tracked down. Dave is nowadays a highly respected professional composer working for such institutions like the EMI and BBC - probaby not the common career of an early 80s New Wave/Electropop underground artist.
Daves kindness and enthusiasm on reworking old POEME ELECTRONIQUE material and reviving the group was extraordinary, and so is his level of production quality. Now one might think that remixes are uninteresting or useless, but when you will hear the work that Dave did on the 7” tracks, you will surely get the impression that some improvement has occurred. The tracks just sound incredible, and now more versatile. For example, in VOICE, a chorus, though already written in 1982 but never used, has eventually been added and also the vocals have been completely rerecorded this summer. Truly, Sharon and Julies voices sound as fresh as 25 years ago! Anna is incredibly proud of releasing this record, and you know that this was not the end of the story!
