irene & mavis / 10"

A 10" reissue of Blancmange's seminal debut ep 'Irene & Mavis'. Formed in the UK by Neil Arthur & Stephen Luscombe, Blancmange recorded the 6 songs on 'Irene & Mavis' in 1979 and released it as a 7"ep in 1980. 'Irene & Mavis', though not exactly representative of what Blancmange later went on to become, is a fascinating relic that captures the gestation period of the duo, fresh out of art school and keen to experiment. The Diy sound of the ep fits right in there with the early output of Soft Cell, the Human League, and Cabaret Voltaire; but what separates it from those like-minded releases of the time is that its even more distinctly English. In fact it was Daniel Miller, supporter and Mute boss himself who 1st recognized this when he proclaimed them 'the maiden aunts of electronic music'. The ep is simultaneously pioneering, provincial, and surreal in its down-to-earth playfulness and lack of artifice. It stands out as an important record, capturing the mundane with modern electronics and remains as an artifact representative of the band before they went on to reach pop chart success.
