Flashback Friday: Robert Marlow



Via rt16 on YouTube.

Produced by Vince Clarke shortly after Yaz's "You & Me Both", as you can probably tell just from listening to it. That's Alison Moyet on backing vocals, by the way. She and Marlow (real name: Robert Allen) were in a band called the Vandals together in their younger days growing up in Basildon. Despite the star power behind the record, Marlow only found modest success. A couple of years ago, he announced his return to music, this time just using the named Marlow. The new album is apparently nearing completion as I write this.

I can see why he had no success...
