The Art Nouveau EP

November 11, 2019

Hello KajaFans!

It’s been a while since we conversed, or indeed had the need to converse!

If you keep your ear close to Goo ground, you may have heard recently from Nick that an Art Nouveau EP was about to be released on vinyl. A couple of weeks ago we had this confirmed from Stuart, it was indeed going to happen soon.

As you should well know by now, Art Nouveau was the name of the band featuring Nick, Steve. Stuart and Jez before they got together with Limahl and formed KajaGooGoo.

This EP features a selection of tracks from 1980, comprising of live tracks, rehearsals and studio sessions.

The time these tracks were put together was a very exciting time for music so in buying this vinyl, you really are capturing a time that just can’t be recreated, no matter how new artistes do try.

Available currently on pre-order, coming to you in 180 gram vinyl, you have a choice of:

Marbled vinyl (100 limited)
TFEP193M
€19,99

Purple vinyl (200 limited)
TFEP193P
€14,99

Clear vinyl (100 limited)
TFEP193C
€14,99

You can also take the full set of three as one purchase.
TFEP193SET
€ 44,99

If you would like to pre-order your vinyl, you can do this right away from ToneFloat:

KajaFax have pre-ordered our full set and we will of course run a feature on the vinyl when it arrives.

Official release date is 17/01/2020 but with the limited run, I would not expect these to hang around beyond the pre-order.

As you can see from the values above, this is strictly limited so grab yours today!

Limahl – Inside Your Mind

January 25, 2019

Looking back through the extensive ‘offline’ Kajafax archives, I noticed a track that we’ve not featured here before, until today. Sometimes we surprise ourselves with the gems we have hidden in our collection!

It could be said, it is a largely unknown fact that back in 2011 Limahl was approached to record a track to be used in a console game, namely ‘Boom Boom Dance AKA Rhythm Party’. This game was available on the Xbox Live Arcade platform though the game itself (but not the DLC) was later removed from the Xbox marketplace on 1st February, 2015. History tells us that Limahl accepted the task and ‘Inside Your Mind’ was born.

Viewers with a keen eye may have previously spotted and heard a 32s snippet of the track in the discography slider section over at limahl.com, so we are delighted to bring the full track to your attention.

As with many games in this type of ‘hit the buttons in the time with the music’ style game, more tracks were added as DLC (downloadable content) as time went along. This is where we find the track from Limahl, when Song Pack 4 was released on 14th March, 2012.

Composition of the track was courtesy of Naoki Maeda, a Japanese composer and arranger from Osaka. Extensively involved in the J-POP scene and then producing music for major gaming houses such as Capcom, Sega and Konami.

The track itself is superb, a real dance anthem which would not sound out of place booming out at exceptionally high volume in clubland. I’m sure you will agree that the track has a truly wonderful vocal from Limahl. Listen to the track here:

Have you heard this track before? Did you know this track existed before? What do you think of the track?

KajaGooGoo: The Stables 2008 Ten Years!

December 11, 2018
by

Well, it’s been a while since we last posted KajaFans! Almost two years. Time flies.

Looking back at some previous posts, we realised it’s been exactly ten years since KajaGooGoo played The Stables in Milton Keynes and wowed us all with an amazing concert. I’m sure everyone that was there remembers the swing show from Limahl and of course, the opening statement from Paul Gambaccini!!

If you weren’t there that night, you missed an amazing show but do have a look back to my review of the opening night Wednesday 10th December 2008:

https://kajafax.co.uk/2011/02/01/concert-reviews-the-stables-2008/

It really was a special show, fans travelled from all across Europe and even from USA! Friendships were formed that night that remain to this day.

Not the best quality but here is a snippet of the action from that evening, courtesy of juliuscheeser1963:

 

Here at KajaFax, we’ve recently celebrated clocking past 750,000 views. Three quarters of a million! Thank you to each and every one of you that continues to read the site and enjoy the treasure chest of KajaGooGoo material here.

As most of you know, we have been busy working with Limahl so we are never far away from the KGG world.

We would like to wish all of our readers a Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays.

Love,
KajaFax

Happy 2017!!!

A very happy 2017 to all of our KajaFax readers!

The latter half of 2016 was a quiet time for KajaFax to say the least, as we have not posted since the summer.  The good news is that we are back, and ready for a Kajatastic 2017!!   We begin the year with a fabulous post, containing material sent to us by friend, KajaFan, collector, and all round top guy Denny.

‘Oh Boy’ magazine was a 1970/80’s girls teen mag.  Long since defunct, we now have some scans of a ‘pre-Kajagoogoo’ Limahl in his “angel-faced” glory. For those in the know, ‘Angel‘ was the title of the then Chris Hamill’s current single which was, alas, not destined to be a hit….

Please read, and enjoy!

To Denny – thank you!    These images were sent a good number of weeks ago, and due to circumstances beyond our control, we have only now been able to publish….

See you soon for more great Kajagoogoo news and media – thanks for viewing and making us the #1 Kajagoogoo website on the net!

Limahl: Photo-Love Magazine 1981

July 2, 2016

Welcome back to KajaFax and our first update of July!

Today’s article comes to you courtesy of ‘Goo fan and KajaFax regular Steven aka ‘Denny’.

A great collector of all things pop, Denny has very kindly pulled this terrific vintage magazine from his archives, scanning it for us all to share and enjoy.  We are really grateful for all fan contributions – it’s what the KajaFax community thrives on – so thank you!  These scans feature a ‘pre-Limahl’ Chris Hamill as both cover-star and protagonist of the photo-novel story Running Scared….

Without further ado, here’s Photo Love Magazine No.125 – 12th September 1981.
