Just days after ABBA Voyage opened its doors to the public, we're celebrating an ABBA project that, at the time, was one of the first to bring the iconic Swedish four-piece back to the public conscious following their split in the early 80s. Released 30 years ago this week, ABBA-esque saw Erasure, one of the most popular acts of the time, put their spin on four ABBA classics. The EP was a huge success, staying at the top of the UK charts for five weeks.
We're joined by Andy Bell to discuss the EP, his memories of ABBA, Voyage, Björn Again's Erasure-ish release, and more.
