Erasure: Central Hall, Westminster, London
Adam Sweeting, The Guardian, 11 April 1987
THANKS MOSTLY to the glittering Andy Bell, Erasure manage not to be the cold stew of circuits and digital read-outs decried by some. Certainly, much of their pert, instant pop is too good to be true, cut and dried with contemptuous precision. But they'd even have an audience of robots in a clanking good knees-up by half-time.
