Quando Quango | Pigs And Battleships

This is the first ever CD from Factory dance trailblazers Quando Quango, the seminal 80's electronic dance combo helmed by Hillegonda 'Gonnie' Rietveld and Mike Pickering. Formed in 1981 in Rotterdam, Holland, Mike and Hillegonda relocated to Manchester in 1983 and went on to release four cult 12" singles and an album for Factory Records. As well as the full 1985 album (FACT 110) this extended CD version includes all the singles: Love Tempo, Atom Rock, Go Exciting and Genius. Pigs and Battleships was mixed in New York by legendary house producer Mark Kamins, who also handled the remixes of Love Tempo and Atom Rock included as bonus tracks. Associate members included percussionist Simon Topping (ex ACR), bassist Barry Johnson (ex-Sweet Sensation, later Aswad) and Reinier Rietveld (Spasmodique). Guest musicians include singer Beverley MacDonald (52nd Street), pianist Andy Connell (ACR, Swing Out Sister) as well as guitarists Vini Reilly and Johnny Marr. Note that the original UK mixes of Love Tempo (1983) and Atom Rock (1984) appear on the LTM compilation Cool As Ice: The Be Music Productions.
Pigs And Battleships has been digitally remastered from the original tapes and runs for 74 minutes. The booklet includes sleevenotes by Dr Hillegonda Rietveld.
