And who would have thought that it would lead to a full LP? Inspection of the artwork fools you into thinking that the Silicon Teens are a quartet of Darryl, Jacki, Paul, and Diane. Though it sounds like a group of enthusiastic youngsters bent on giving straight-faced, faithful synthpop renditions of tunes like "Memphis, Tennessee" and "You've Really Got Me," the concept of the group is illusory. There's actually one Silicon Teen - Mute honcho Daniel Miller. Music for Parties is an undeniably fun record in its complete lack of irony and shameless giddiness

In actuality everything was performed by Mute Records founder Daniel Miller, with Fad Gadget's Frank Tovey providing a "face" for the accompanying music video and press photo. It's hard not to overstate how different rock music in 2016 would be if Seattle quintet Mother Love Bone had been able to make a second album. Their combination of Northwest grunge and runny-mascara glam sounded like a prediction of where hair metal, just beginning its decline in 1990, could go.
Exclusive Prime pricing. These minimalist, pure synth reworkings of pop and rock classics are great fun to listen to and of course, perfect for parties. It's really infectious stuff - the songs are all very tuneful and rhythmic with a pure pop sensibility.
