Silicon Teens - Memphis Tennessee

YouTube via MuteChannel

While many electronic music geeks are probably familiar with Mute Records head Daniel Miller's late 70's project The Normal (in particular, their sole single "Warm Leatherette", which has since been covered dozens of times), fewer are aware of an album he released under the name Silicon Teens. The band's sole album (1980's "Music for Parties") was a collection of classic rock songs given a decidedly cheesy synth-pop treatment. While the band did have 'members' aside from Miller, these were later revealed to be actors, so the true credits behind the project are a bit sketchy.
