Any 80’s fan worth their salt will remember Vancouver’s Images In Vogue. Numerous hits included “Lust For Love”, “Call It Love” and more. That stellar history has brought us to this.
Images in Vogue was a Vancouver-based new wave group formed in 1981 and released several singles and EPs before signing with Warner for their debut full-length In the House. The band achieved national and international success with their full-bodied take on new wave and synthpop, as well as their wonderful melodies which still get airplay to this day. In 1986, Images in Vogue won a CASBY award for Single of the Year (for “In the House”) as well as for group of the year. They produced a second album, The Spell, before disbanding in 1991.
This 4LP vinyl boxset collects some of Images in Vogue’s earliest recordings, and represents the group’s initial, possibly most famous line-up of Dale Martindale, Joe Vizvary, Glen Nelson, Gary Smith, Kevin Crompton (Cevin Key of Skinny Puppy), and Don Gordon (of Numb). The set includes the band’s long-lost first unreleased album; unreleased demos; the band first, now rare EPs; the self-titled Images in Vogue EP, including b-sides and rarities; and a wonderful live performance in 1982 at Vancouver’s famous Luv-A-Fair club.
