Music For Parties - Silicon Teens

Music For Parties


(Arguably) The world’s first manufactured electronic pop band. Comprised of members Darryl, Jacki, Paul and Diane, Silicon Teens were the brainchild of producer Larry Least.

Ahead of their time both in concept and sound, but unfortunately they only released one album, Music for Parties, following the release musical differences drove the band apart, but their profile was raised when John Hughes used the track Red River Rock prominently in his film Planes, Trains and Automobiles which starred John Candy and Steve Martin. The album includes re-imagined rock n roll classics like Let’s Dance, Memphis Tennessee and You Really Got Me.

Originally released in September 1980, the second album to be released by the independent record label Mute, Daniel Miller's successful company which he launched with his own single under the moniker The Normal and worked closely with Frank Tovey.
