There's a little bit of darkness in all our souls and even the purest maestros of pop like a foray to the other side from time to time. Like a 'society for the digital slipper' or 'an electronic circle of the Masons', B.E.F (British Electric Foundation) is the indulgent collaboration of an experimental collective of artists decadently exploring their outer limits, illuminated by the master of ceremonies and pioneer of synth pop himself - Martyn Ware. The third in B.E.F.'s Music of Quality and Distinction series Dark, as the title would suggest, is a unique re-working of covers from stars who shine brightly, dimming the lights for personal takes on twisted torch songs. Boy George performs Iggy Pop's 'I Wanna Be Your Dog', Kim Wilde takes on Stevie Wonder's 'Every Time I See You I Go Wild', Kate Jackson of the Long Blondes sings 'Picture This' originally performed by Blondie, Shingai Shoniwa from the Noisettes sings the Beach Boys 'God Only Knows' with plenty of other gems to discover from the likes of Green Gartside (Scritti Politti), Andy Bell and Glenn Gregory.
