    Sorry, just to clarify - 808 State were a "band" who were most popular at the end of the 80s, start of the 90s.

    The clip in the original post is from when they appeared on Top of the Pops in 1989.

    Brandon Barker's uncle is playing one of the keyboards in the clip.

    I loved 808 State and was keen to get input as to whether this rumour was true or not and I'm delighted to have had this confirmed as being true.
    Partington and Barker signed my original album of Newbuild.
    If I choose to revert back to Carlsberg it will have to be The Carlsberg

    It's meant to be a tenor sax.

    The sound is produced from midi files on the keyboard, with the thing itself being a Yamaha wind controller or something similar.

    I chuckled at the suggestion initially, but I think this can work.

    I'd maybe tweak it to Bran-don Bar-ker, Bran-don Bar-ker, Bran-don Baaaaaaaaaaar-ker.

    I think these were the lyrics they were looking for, couldn't find, so had to settle for an electric sax.


    I actually just sang that out loud in work

    Right, my ITK credentials are generally the square root of zero.

    This isn't a red-hot transfer rumour, but during what is set to be a dull International week I'm sure you'll all agree that this is a matter of great importance.

    I heard over the weekend from what I would consider to be a pretty good source that Brandon Barker's uncle was/is in 808 state, and there doesn't seem to be any mention of this on the internet.

    Is there anyone out there with knowledge of the Barker family or the late 80s Manchester/ Acid House scene who could confirm this?



    (One of the chaps on keyboards - the one in the blue suit and hat with ginger hair - is called Andrew Barker).
    One of my absolute favourites. Played loud with headphones on absolutely mind blowing.
