Blancmange @ The Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh, 8 Nov;  Òran Mór, Glasgow, 9 Nov

"Probably the most underrated electronic act of all time," says Porcelain creator Moby of London-based synth-pop act Blancmange. Prolific in the 80s, the duo broke up in 1986 going on to reform in 2011 when they released their fourth album, Blanc Burn. Blancmange is now the moniker of solo artist Neil Arthur, and he’s out on the road this month to celebrate latest album Wanderlust, released on 19 October. Catch Blancmange in all his synth-pop, 80s electro wonder in Edinburgh and Glasgow this month. Tickets £19.50
