A while ago, the Boston Globe ran this article on Erasure's Vince Clarke, the father of synthpop from Basildon, Essex, and his current home.
Damariscotta, a small village on the coast of Maine.
He lives there with his American wife and son, with neighbors who don't really know who he is.
Now he goes out fishing on his neighbor's boat, and many of the others who live on his private road -- most of them are retired, Clarke says -- plan to make the trek to Boston next month for Erasure's performance at the Bank of America Pavilion.
I would have paid good money to see their reactions when Erasure singer Andy Bell stepped on the stage for the first time.
