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

Arcadia - Election Day

'Election Day' was the first single released by the Duran Duran off-shoot band, Arcadia.

It was released by Parlophone Records in October 1985 and subsequently hit the top ten on both sides of the Atlantic, peaking at number 6 in the US and number 7 in the UK, but was the most successful in Ireland, peaking at number 5 and in Italy, peaking at number 1 (also reaching the Top 25 in Germany).

Along with the Arcadia members, 'Election Day' features Grace Jones on vocals and speech

The dark and moody video — with Gothic imagery inspired by Jean Cocteau's 1946 film, La Belle et la BĂȘte — was shot in and around Paris in late September 1985. It was directed by Roger Christian. There was a short cameo appearance by William S. Burroughs. A documentary film was made on the filming and production of the music video
