Not one of Germany’s finest contributions to pop music, even though they sold millions of records and won a Grammy. In the late 80’s and early 90’s, Milli Vanilli were one of the world’s biggest pop acts, before the truth came out that Rob & Fab were not the actual singers. Their downfall was sudden and ultimately tragic, as Rob died from a drugs overdose at the age of 32. Seems like one of those situations that started off as a bit of a laugh, but got seriously out of control.
Going through some of my 7″‘s tonight when I came across this track by The Beat. It made me realise how little Ska I had in my collection now, especially since I grew up in Coventry around the time the scene went crazy. Note in diary!
Well, it’s the start of the month, so time for me to bring out a new offer! I’ve reduced the price of several of my Country Music records, including artists such as Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers, Don Williams and (of course) Jim Reeves. Most are less than £1 + shipping, so please check them out here
