ABC with Martin Fry
ABC with Martin Fry
If I were to say to you, can you keep a secret? A mere 34 years since the release of one of the landmark albums of the 80s, ABC return to the scene of their most resounding triumph with the May 27th release of ‘The Lexicon Of Love II’ on the Virgin EMI label. Sonically doffing its cap to the original, it features 10 brand new songs from the pen of ABC kingpin Martin Fry abetted by various musical cohorts. It might take a less innocent, more experienced view on affairs of the heart than its million selling predecessor, but it still concludes that all you need is love.
Foremost among Fry’s collaborators on the new album is Academy Award winning musician and composer Anne Dudley, who arranged the strings on the original Lexicon; she has provided orchestral arrangements that give ‘The Lexicon Of Love II’ its signature sound, and has co written two of the key songs on the album: ‘The Love Inside The Love’ and ‘Brighter Than The Sun’. Other songwriting partners include Grammy award winner Rob Fusari (Beyonce, Lady Gaga), film composer Charlie Mole and Marcus Vere. Production is by Gary Stevenson and Martin Fry.

The video for the first single ‘Viva Love’ has been filmed by director Julien Temple in the Theatre Royal, Stratford East, the same venue where they shot the promo for ‘Poison Arrow’ in ’82. Julien Temple went on to make a feature length movie starring ABC entitled ‘Mantrap’, released in ’83.

Says Martin Fry: “We performed a show at the Albert Hall a couple of years ago to mark the 30th anniversary of The Lexicon of Love. It struck me there and then that it was time to make a sequel. To explore those themes once again and to look at love through the eyes of a man in later life. Now the years have passed, my perspective on life and love has changed. I wanted to make an album that reflected that.”

The full track listing of ‘The Lexicon Of Love II’ is:

• The Flames Of Desire
• Viva Love
• Ten Below Zero
• Confessions Of A Fool
• Singer Not The Song
• The Ship Of The Seasick Sailor
• Kiss Me Goodbye
• I Believe In Love
• The Love Inside The Love
• Brighter Than The Sun
• Viva Love Reprise

ABC were formed in Sheffield in the early 1980’s when they decided they wanted fuse the world of disco funk with their own unique post punk vision. ABC’s debut album ‘The Lexicon Of Love’ (‘82) went to No 1 and sold over a million records.

To date ABC have released 8 studio albums: ‘The Lexicon Of Love’ (’82), ‘Beauty Stab’ (’83), ‘How To Be A Zillionaire’ (’85), ‘Alphabet City’ (’87), ‘Up’ (’89), ‘Abracadabra’ (’91), ‘Skyscraping’ (’97) and ‘Traffic’ (’08). The Lexicon Of Love II (2016)

Edwin Fish "Jed" Gould III (born July 15, 1955), known to radio listeners as Jed the Fish, is a disc jockey who hosted afternoon drive on KROQ-FM in Los Angeles, from 1978 to 2012. Known for his maniacal laugh and biting humor, he interviewed seminal alternative acts such as Brian Eno, David Bowie, Sting and Elvis Costello, and is often jokingly credited as the first DJ on KROQ to play The Offspring's "Come Out and Play". From 1994 to July 2013, Jed additionally hosted the nationally syndicated show Out of Order. It is a countdown of the most popular alternative rock songs in the country, but, as the name implies, the songs are not played in numeric order. Out of Order is two hours long and is syndicated by Dial Global.

Awards: Gould won Billboard's Major Market Alternative Radio Personality of the year in 1998 and 2000 (in 1999 his co-workers Kevin and Bean took home the prize). He won Album Network's All Stars award for Virtuallyalternative Radio Personality in 1999 and 2000.

From 2012-2018 Jed the Fish was also an air personality at radio station KCSN.

In 2018, he became a DJ at Los Angeles' KLOS.
Freddy Snakeskin
Freddy Snakeskin
Young Freddy Snakeskin grew up in the wilds of Arizona where he developed an early appreciation for music, and records. He even displayed an early artistic streak -- by taking his crayons to his parents' record collection. His quick-thinking mother soon discovered the best way of distracting her young vandal was by turning on the radio, where the dulcet tones of Wolfman Jack and other manic radio personalities quickly attracted his attention, and an early fascination with all things radio was born.

Quickly tiring of mowing neighborhood lawns to earn money to buy the records he heard and loved on the radio, he set about trying to get a job in the broadcasting industry (figuring that would be a really good way to get free records). After writing plaintive letters to every radio station in town, he was surprised when he actually got a reply from one of them, a low rated country music station on the opposite side of town who invited him in for a "tour," Tours of this "facility" never took long as they broadcast from a one-room shack which barely had running water.

As he was still too young to have a driver's license, he persuaded his long-suffering mother to give him a ride there, where he quickly impressed the manager, who also doubled as janitor, with all his pent-up enthusiasm (but not necessarily his talent) for radio, and was offered a part-time job organizing the record library. This soon materialized into his first on-air appearance when one of the regular DJs got popped for drunk driving on his way to work one afternoon. A regular weekend slot then followed, and from this launching pad young Freddy slithered his way around town -- and into and out of at least a dozen other local radio stations.

It wasn't long before the "big time" beckoned and he was offered a weekend job on a 50,000 watt Los Angeles Top 40 station, where Freddy realized his boyhood dream of broadcasting on an AM station which, on a clear night, was known for reaching halfway around the world. A succession of other LA radio jobs followed; then Freddy, always a fan of strange music, discovered KROQ (or perhaps it was the other way around) in 1980.

Over the next few decades Freddy bounced around KROQ, during which time he held down virtually every air shift at one time or another, and even served as Program Director for a few years, leaving in 1990 to found the fondly-remembered Santa Monica-based alternative/techno hybrid-formatted MARS-FM, for the entire 2 years of its existence, followed by a quick return to KROQ as well as stints in Las Vegas and Phoenix, plus 6-years with Sirius Satellite Radio's "First Wave" channel.

Then, once again, he found himself back at good ole KROQ for several more years, coordinating music for JACK-FM and leading KROQ-HD2's Roq of the 80s format -- followed by (yet another) period of involuntary retirement, at CBS Radio's request, before being invited back by Entercom for 2018's big Roq of the 80s relaunch. Who says you can never go home anymore?!
