Happy Families, released in 1982, feels like a fully-formed electronic pop classic. Highlights include Living On The Ceiling' (a striking #7 hit in '82 thanks to its mix of electronics with tabla and sitar), the melancholia of Waves', Feel Me's call-and-response electro-funk, the intense I Can't Explain' and God's Kitchen' which is an early example of Neil Arthur's gift with images and wordplay.
Blancmange's second album, Mange Tout reached # 8 in the UK charts in 1984 and spawned more hits - notably Blind Vision' (#1), Don't Tell Me' (#8) and their fantastic cover of ABBA's The Day Before You Came' (much loved by ABBA who let them use footage from their original video for the Blancmange promo). It signals another change for the band's music, now increasingly built around deep, propulsive dance grooves.
The third and final Blancmange album of the 198s, Believe You Me was released in 1985 and features bitter-sweet pop songs such as Lose Your Love', Don't You Love It All' and What's Your Problem.'
