An expanded CD and download album from Factory dance combo Quando Quango, the seminal electro trailblazers helmed by Hillegonda 'Gonnie' Rietveld and Mike Pickering.
Formed in 1981 in Rotterdam, Mike and Gonnie relocated to Manchester in 1983 and went on to release four 12" singles and an album. As well as the 1985 long player Pigs + Battleships (FACT 110) this remaster includes single sides Love Tempo, Atom Rock, Triangle, Go Exciting, Tingle and Genius.
Pigs + Battleships was mixed in New York by legendary deejay/producer Mark Kamins, who also helmed the remixes of Love Tempo and Atom Rock included as bonus tracks. Associate Quango members include percussionist Simon Topping (ex A Certain Ratio), bassist Barry Johnson (ex-Sweet Sensation, later Aswad) and Reinier Rietveld (Spasmodique). Guest musicians include singer Beverley McDonald (52nd Street), pianist Andy Connell (ACR, Swing Out Sister) and guitarists Vini Reilly and Johnny Marr.
The album has been digitally remastered from the original master tapes and runs for 74 minutes. Booklet includes sleevenotes by Gonnie Rietveld. A different version featuring different bonus tracks is also available on Factory Benelux as FBN 110 CD.
