european grey


Owen on Grey Europa... must also mention Warsawza from Bowie's Low, after which the proto Joy Division Warsaw were named ... and as for greyness there is of course 'Fade to Grey' (Visage being total europhiles, which is what made them so fascinating to the US) but interesting that the phrase 'European grey' occurs in the song 'Hiroshima Mon Amour', named after Resnais/Duras' film ... a New Wave (in the cinematic sense) take on Japan and China seems to be as central to that moment of British synthpop as does a pure Europhilia...
