Retro Video Unit (4/20/12)

The idea for this one just came to me out of nowhere, and I was happy to find the original music video.

Yaz (known as Yazoo in the UK, forced to change it here because another US band was already using Yazoo at the time) was one of the earliest techno groups to get airplay and notoriety, following other British groups like Human League and Depeche Mode. In fact, Vince Clarke had been a founding member of Depeche Mode before starting Yaz with Alison Moyet.

They only released two albums, but ended up being far more influential years down the road. Here's the very excellent "Situation."
