In the mid-1980s, former Generation X founder Tony James pieced together a pop group like no other.
Taking the greatest rock ‘n roll traditions and clichés and fusing them with a utopian vision of modernism,
commercialism and the future, Sigue Sigue Sputnik brought together a previously unknown and
inexperienced collection of would-be musicians and faces and turned them into the must-see band of the
era. Under James' strategic masterminding, Sputnik were hyped in the media before a note had been
released, were courted by major labels and television stations, became regulars on London's glittering
social circuit and developed a reputation for chaos and grandiosity which appealed to the mainstream
tabloid press as much as it did the music papers.
Working with studio legend Giorgio Moroder, the band crafted a club-oriented, electronic rock ‘n roll
sound littered with immovable basslines, pop culture samples, familiar licks, self-glamorising lyrics and a
futurist aesthetic. Marketing and advertising were warmly embraced - the album included paid-for adverts
between tracks - and Sputnik resolutely insisted on their own brilliance, whether you liked it or not. THE
ULTIMATE PRODUCT FROM THE ULTIMATE GROUP, they declared, and they weren't far wrong.
This celebratory package brings together “Flaunt It” and its many remixes, B-sides and rarities,
alongside a brilliant and chaotic live recording made at London's Abbey Road Studios, providing the
perfect counterpoint for the rule-bending studio manipulation found elsewhere. Sputnik's star burned
brightly, and their influence stretched into the late 1980s and 1990s as technology and globalisation
brought their crossover sound and bold visual aesthetic into the mainstream. This set is a must-have
for fans of the band and 1980s pop culture, and for believers in a glittering future.
