Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Midge Ure and Mick Karn - After A Fashion

'After A Fashion' was a one-off single released by Ultravox lead singer Midge Ure and Mick Karn bassist for the art rock band Japan, from 1974 to 1982.

The song peaked at number 39 on the UK singles chart in 1983.

The cover for the single was taken by Linda McCartney.

I have included the video that was taken from the Timmy Mallet Saturday program as this is the only version that has surfaced on You Tube (to my knowledge). The quality is not great. If any one has a much better quality that does not have the programe info at the end then please let me know. Thank you in advance.

  1. Thanks for this - been looking for the 12" version for ages. Nice blog - don't suppose you have the Modern Man album Concrete Scheme by any chance?

  2. Thanks. I've been a fan of Japan and Ultravox for 30 years and I didn't know about this single... Shame on me!
