"Listening to Blancmange obsessively. Probably the most under-rated electronic act of all time."

- Moby


"Blancmange have been a part of the soundtrack to my life ever since 'Happy Families' was released."

- John Grant


“They were one of my favourite Bands when I grew up as a teenager in the 80’s. Listening to their music walking around with my Walkman back then was adventurous. Mainly because I was already in love with the aesthetics of synthesisers and drum machines. But also because it was unusual pop music with an extraordinary energy that made it in the charts."

- Roman Flügel
