5.0 out of 5 stars Daniel Miller gem, 20 Dec 2010

I've been after 'Warm Leatherette' and 'TVOD' for a long time and remember hearing them on John Peel's show in the late 1970s. The only other place I can find them both is the Mute boxed set which contains what looks like the entire output of the label and features a lot of music by Fad Gadget and various artists I either don't like or don't know. These songs are among the more powerful examples of low budget electronic music from the new wave era in which they sit comfortably. It's a shame The Normal didn't run to an album, but Music for Parties by The Silicon Teens which Daniel Miller was also behind stands as the lighter flipside to this darker material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece of Synth Rock, 29 Nov 2002

This review is from: Warm Leatherette/T.V.O.D. (Audio CD)
This song was of course made famous by Grace Jones in her 1980 version on the album of the same name. I like hers, but I love this even more. Similar to the more melodic side of Suicide, especially songs like Ghost Rider, Keep Your Dreams, Cheree and I Remember or perhaps Nag Nag Nag by Cabaret Voltaire. I would say this orginal version is more eerie and hypnotic than Grace Jone's fuller, but still ominous, rendition. A brilliant classic of synthesizer rock, with intelligent, poetic lyrics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't Tear My Ears Away, 26 Dec 2012

A Crash-inspired robotic intonation which nonetheless grabs your ears. Electronica is not normally my bag but this one stands out. The flip side also entertains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transcendencia inesperada, 18 Dec 2009
By 
Warm Leatherette ya tiene 31 años. Un tema grabado en casa, escondido en la cara B del disco. Con talento y poco más, se pasa a la historia
