Retro Saturday: The The

The The - aka Matt Johnson - produced some great and provocative music during the 80s and 90s. His best album (IMHO) was "Infected" which produced the (ahead of its time) "Sweet Bird of Truth" which, British radio being what it is, banned from the airwaves around the time of the first Gulf war. Find it at

Also on "Infected" is his sizzling duet with Neneh Cherry, "Slow Train To Dawn": the video is at

The title track, "Infected" also said a lot about the time it was released. Find the video at
