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

Pseudo Echo - Funkytown

Pseudo Echo is an Australian band which plays New Romantic style of music. The band was formed in 1982, by schoolmates, Brian Canham (vocalist, guitar and keyboard player) and Pierre Gigliotti (bass and keyboard player). The other two members of the group were, Anthony Argiro (drum player) and Tony Lugton (guitar and keyboard player).

In 1986 the band covered a song called 'Funky Town',which was an original hit for Lipps Inc back in 1980 (also available on this blog).

The band gave the song a different sound, less of early eighties' electronica and more of later eighties' rock, including a guitar solo in the middle. Pseudo Echo's version made number 8 in the UK Singles Charts, in 1987, and spent seven weeks at Number 1 in Australia, (Lipps Inc.'s was at No. 1 for only two weeks in Australia). The single also made Number 6 US hit in July of the following year and in August a Number 1 hit in Canada.
