About Blancmange

Taking their name from a type of cooked pudding, the electronic duo Blancmange interlaced the arty, exotic dance rhythms of Talking Heads with the quirky melodrama of early-'80s British synth pop. Consisting of Neil Arthur (vocals, guitar) and Stephen Luscombe (keyboards), the band formed in London in the late '70s. The pair were a fixture of U.K. and other European charts from 1982 until their split in 1986. After choosing to reunite in 2011, Luscombe retired due to ill health, but Arthur prolifically released music under the Blancmange name for the remainder of the decade and beyond, including 2022's Private View.
