The Normal-T.V.O.D/Warm Leatherette

Perhaps you've hear the Grace Jones cover of this classic piece of synthy goodness. I can't remember if this was the first release on Mute, as label founder Daniel Miller is The Normal, but if it isn't it has to be one of their earlier ones. Basically, this 7" is just Miller with some synths and a tape machine. And while he only issued this one release under this name, it still proved highly influential with the lonely kids with cheap keyboard. There's a million bands around now who are aping this pretty hard, but why spin that rehash when you can listen to this?
