Gina X - No G.D.M. (UK 12 Inch / 1985)

01) No G.D.M. (Extended) 6:10
02) No G.D.M. (7 Inch) 4:19
03) No G.D.M. (Dub Version) 6:35
04) Be A Boy 3:58


05) No G.D.M (7 Inch Edit) 4:05

Originally released in 1979 as a 12 Inch and on the LP 'Nice Mover', this is the Statik Records release from 1985. Nice Mover, the LP, was remastered and re-released  on CD back in 2005. 

I have a hard time classifying this track. It falls perfectly in the Post punk, New Wave DIY territory. A bit disco like, the vocoder used for vocals in the chorus, this one seems all to appropriate for an androgynous French discotheque. Kind of Gary Numan like to me, but not as shadowy. It still is a favourite of mine!

Tracks 1-3 are directly from this vinyl release as is all the art. Tracks 4 & 5 are taken from the 2005 Remaster release of 'Nice Mover' from Gina X Performance.

  1. Thanks! I knew this song from Erasure's cover version and had never heard the original until now.
