Artist Info

Associates

Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Associates (or Associates, on all but their debut album) were an '80s post-punk/new pop duo from Dundee, Scotland who mixed “post punk modernism with flashbacks to the stylised romance of bygone forms”.

Billy MacKenzie sang torch-songs in the tradition of Scott Walker or Jacques Brel, over multi-instrumentalist Alan Rankine’s clipped guitars and synthisized soundscapes.

Their best known hits are Take Me to the Girl, 18 Carat Love Affair, Club Country, Waiting for the Loveboat, Breakfast and the operatic Party Fears Two.

Tragically Billy Mackenzie committed suicide in 1997 aged 39, after suffering from depression.
