Data was a UK electro pop group formed in 1979 by Georg Kajanus (formerly of the group “Sailor”), George was responsible for rhythm and melodic programmes, keyboards and FX vocals and was joined by Frankie Boulter (lead and FX vocals), Phil Boulter (vocals), Henry Marsh (additional keyboards) and Simon Boswell (additional keyboards).
The classically orientated title track of DATA’s first album, Opera Electronica, was used as the theme music to the short film, Towers of Babel (1981), which was directed by Jonathan Lewis and starred Anna Quayle and Ken Campbell.
DATA released two more albums, the experimental 2-Time (1983) and the Country & Western-inspired electronica album Elegant Machinery (1985).
The first single to be released from Elegant Machinery was “Blow”, the track was written, produced and engineered by Kajanus and the US Sire Promo 12″ included remixes of both Blow and “D.J.” which would later be mixed with “In Blue” for it’s own 12″ single release.
