    Never heard of this track before, but was amused when Slacker brought it up...

    For a moment I thought I was being hired for an event. :smile:

    I know that song--it's my ring tone for Tesla, not that they ever call me. ;-) I think I also used it for someone from TMC.

    Ha, I just heard this recently as well and snapped a picture and texted it to a TMC pal.
    (Station was "Tenderness" by General Public).
    They recently toured the USA! (I passed, I saw them in 1981)
    Their first 3 albums are essential! Their first single is called "Electricity" as well.

    "Tesla Girls" was in their poppy phase

    I know the OMD song.. but not sure I'd ever met someone who would start a slacker station with 'johnny hates jazz'. At least in the US, they were a one almost-hit wonder.

    Same here, but I was trying to think of genres to try, and recalled that I liked their sound back in the day and wondered what kind of a station Slacker would create from it.

    Why do I suddenly have the urge to dig out my Walkman and backpack (adorned with the requisite PIL button) & go for a stroll across my old college campus?

    Here you go. You get the song AND the girls in this one. :)

    ETA: Oh... OOPS! Boobies!!! Had to remove it. Sorry...

    ETA2: Okay. Here's a more tame version. :D
