I love a lot of Erasure's singles. Their albums? Not so much. I don't think Vince Clarke gets the props he deserves.

The Why Not Guy: I don't think Vince Clarke gets the props he deserves.


Why Not Guy Johnson is right about Vince Clarke deserving more recognition.

He was the founding member of three great electronic bands of dance music. Clarke was a Depeche Mode member for their first album, and wrote Just Can't Get It Up. Then he left and started Yaz (known as Yazoo in the US), before starting Erasure.

So many great electronic riffs, melodies, and beats.

Sorry, but Erasure is the whiniest sounding band in all of the 80s.

Some folks in the comments love to hate them, but if you take a chance on them and show them a little respect, you might find it hard to break the chains of love.

Or something.

Yeah, but I know how to have a good time.

But I don't see what that has to do with Vince Clarke, and all the groovy electronic dance music he's made.

Yes, but Marr's awesome and cutting guitar work counterbalanced it. With Erasure, it's all whiny and drippy.

Offhand I can't think of which band I'd call the whiniest band of the '80s but Erasure wouldn't be on my list. I just don't hear any whine in their songs. Of course since I grade on a curve and Oasis is the baseline for whiny bands I may have a skewed perspective. I'd say The Cure is far whinier and I don't think they are that whiny compared to Oasis, but then who is?

I don't find the Cure whiney at all. In fact, most of their music is pretty up.  Some is cool and creepy, but Robert Smith doesn't whine.

Why not both? Plus Mop Order

..With its new album, ''Disintegration'' (Elektra 60855; all three formats, with two additional songs on cassette and CD), the Cure can depend on a loyal, widespread cult following, a vast company that loves misery.

The Cure's ascent (alongside other mope-rock bands like New Order and the now-defunct Smiths) erodes the stereotype of pop as a happy-face button on culture's lapels...

The Cure had their mopiness, but it was interspersed with downright giddy material. Viewing them only as some proto-emo act does them a disservice.

Now New Order was always pretty dour lyrics-wise, going back to Joy Division. But you wouldn't know it if you were only listening to the music. It was enthusiastically happy.

I saw New Order in concert once.  It was the most joyless and lifeless concert I have ever been to.
