Renowned producer Trevor Horn promised “very special guest artists” for tonight’s one-off Buggles reunion concert, and he’s delivered: In addition to opening act Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, former Yazoo singer Alison Moyet and Claudia Brücken, of Propaganda, are slated to appear.
It’s a huge new release week, with new albums from Killing Joke and Bad Religion; live albums from Yazoo and Tom Tom Club; reissues from Duran Duran, David Bowie, The Fall and Morrissey; and new compilations from Soundgarden, KMFDM and David Sylvian.
Fans who purchase Yazoo’s forthcoming ‘Reconnected Live’ album on iTunes will get a much-coveted bonus: the previously unreleased track ‘Get Set,’ recorded by Alison Moyet and Vince Clarke in 1983 for use as the theme to the BBC children’s TV show ‘Get Set For Summer.’
The release of ‘Reconnected Live’ — the 2CD, 20-track document of 2008’s Yazoo/Yaz reunion tour — is still a couple weeks off, but Mute Records has posted this four-song sampler to whet the appetites of fans of the Vince Clarke/Alison Moyet project.
The recently reunited Yazoo — or Yaz, as the Vince Clarke/Alison Moyet group was known here in the U.S. — have released a short video trailer for their upcoming ‘Reconnected Live,’ the 20-song document of the duo’s 2008 reunion tour, which arrives Sept. 27 in the U.K.

Erasure’s Andy Bell talks to Slicing Up Eyeballs about ‘Non-Stop,’ his dancefloor-ready second solo album that, in some ways, is actually Bell’s third, after his record label forced him to scrap a Stephen Hague-produced effort that ‘sounded too much like Erasure.’
The 2008 reunion tour by Yazoo — or Yaz, as the Vince Clarke/Alison Moyet group was called here in the U.S. — will be documented with a two-disc live album called ‘Reconstructed Live’ that’s due out this fall, the band announced today on its official site.
