The RadioActivators-Knock On Your Door/Bopp

Post by Pughie »

Another of Vince Clarke's side-projects, The RadioActivators, have released their first single.
The release - available only as a 7" vinyl single - is out on Peanut Butter & Jam records through Prime Distribution, and is a limited edition of 1,500 copies.
The single features 'Knock On Your Door', written by Vince with Phil Creswick and with lyrics and vocals by Nigel Lewis [previously only available on the 'Winning London' soundtrack CD] and the previously-unreleased new song 'Bopp', written by Nigel Lewis and K van Green. Both tracks are Eddie Cochran-style classic rock'n'roll, but with Vince's distinctive synthesizer touch.
The single comes in a plain black sleeve. You should be able to find it at any UK record shop which deals in vinyl, and you will be able to order it if it's not in stock.
Alternatively, you can order the single directly from Norman Records.

11 Jun 2001: New Vince Clarke project - 'The Radioactivators'
ArtworkThe new 'Mary-Kate and Ashley' movie, 'Winning London', includes three Vince Clarke songs on the soundtrack album.
Track 4 on the album is a cover of Depeche Mode's 'Just Can't Get Enough', performed by Sam Walker and previously released in the UK as a single.
Track 13 is 'Treat Yourself' by 'Family Fantastic', taken from the previously-released album 'Nice!'.
However, and most excitingly:
Track 15 is 'Knockin' On Ya Door' by the 'RadioActivators'.
The RadioActivators are another Vince Clarke side-project; the song, co-produced by Vince Clarke, was written by Vince and Phil Creswick with lyrics by Nigel Lewis. It is described as a 'synth rockabilly' track; a combination of late 1950's Eddie Cochran-style guitar Rock'N'Roll and early 1980's synth-pop.
As mentioned in passing in the Vince Clarke & Phil Creswick interview, this RadioActivators track is taken from an as-yet-unreleased 4-track Rock'N'Roll EP.
