Raquel



From what is possibly the greatest concept album by a Welsh musician about a maverick American car designer featuring pastiche 80s synthpop music ever!

Neon Neon - 'Raquel' (2008)

  1. Great album! Shoulda been a bigger hit. Oh well, the general concensus in 2009 is that it's gonna sound like 1982 (at least for this week!) so maybe it will be a 'sleeper' hit. think 'I Lust You' is my favourite on the album

  2. It is so uncannily evocative of the period that I keep expecting it to end with...

    Vangelis - 'Blade Runner(End Titles)' (1982)

    Happy New Year to you and yours BTW
