82 THE LIST 22 Sep–20 Oct 2011
Vince and Andy hit the road again, as part of the Tomorrow’s World tour, tying in with a new album of the same name (released Mon 3 Oct). The album was produced by Vincent ‘Frankmusik’ Frank, who was born the same year as the pioneering, camp synthpoppers started making music together – 1985, in the wake of falsetto electro artists like Bronski Beat. Those Abba covers aside, the world of chirpy electro-pop has plenty to thank Erasure for. For example, ‘Victim of Love’ and ‘A Little Respect’. ■ 02 Academy, Glasgow, Thu 13 Oct; Corn Exchange, Edinburgh, Sat 15 Oct.
