5 September 2013 – 808 State (featuring Bjork) – Oops – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

Believe it or not I used to actually like electronic music in the 90s and Manchester’s 808 State were one of my favorites. I saw them live twice when they toured for their fourth album Gorgeous in 1993 (one show they opened for New Order and the other they opened for Meat Beat Manifesto). Sadly, I never saw them play my favorite song Oops, which featured vocals by Bjork, but I’m equally relieved that bands back in the day had the sense not to play a tacky video of the not present vocalist which is all the rage these days . . . well that and holograms. OK, maybe a Bjork hologram would be cool. Or not. I really don’t know. Just watch the video.
