A cloud of disappointment hovers over the Mississippi Delta following the Environmental Protection Agency's veto of a $220 million flood-control initiative known as the Yazoo Backwater Pump. The decision, however, reflects not only a victory for the environment but a recognition of fiscal realities, as well. The Yazoo project has long been targeted by the National Wildlife Federation and Taxpayers for Common Sense. The NWF has called for reforms within the Corps of Engineers to eliminate...

By Mark Lowry, Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Texas Jul. 23--DALLAS -- The arty synth-pop duo Yaz (Yazoo in their British homeland) released only two albums, 1982's Upstairs at Eric and 1983's You and Me Both, but the 22 songs on the American versions of those records were part of the '80s teen soundtrack (or at least they were where I was hanging out). Who would have thought that vocalist Alison Moyet and techmeister Vince Clarke (the Depeche Mode co-founder who later established a lasting...

Jul. 21--Yaz's charm was always in its simplicity, in the elegant blank verse of Alison Moyet's poetic lyrics and in Vince Clarke's economic but melodic musical accompaniment. It's a combination that powered the duo's two outstanding albums -- "Upstairs at Eric's" and "You and Me Both" -- and quickly made them staples of WLIR and modern rock stations around the country in the '80s, one that established their reputation as icons today, though they...

By Jim Harrington, Contra Costa Times, Walnut Creek, Calif. Jul. 8--Vince Clarke is a founding member of three of the most significant synth-pop bands in history: Depeche Mode, Erasure and Yaz. The first two have each been around now for well over 20 years. By contrast, Yaz released just two albums during its two-year run (1982-1983). Yet, a lasting mark can be made in a relatively short period -- and that's exactly what synthesizer king Clarke and vocalist Alison Moyet accomplished...

Alison Moyet isn't one of those '80s stars stuck in the past. Sure, she's in the middle of the much-anticipated Yaz reunion tour, teaming up with synthesizer wiz Vince Clarke for the first time in 25 years. But she's also releasing her seventh solo album, "The Turn" (Decca), filled with stately, Bowiesque rock and sophisticated Jacques Brel pop that is about as far from the electronica-pioneering Yaz as you can get. "I've never been one for sitting-back-on-my-laurel days," says Moyet,...


Word of the Day
mallemaroking
  • Nautical, the visiting and carousing of sailors in the Greenland ships.
This word is apparently from a confusion of two similar Dutch words: 'mallemerok,' a foolish woman, and 'mallemok,' a name for some persons among the crew of a whaling vessel.
