Mekon Featuring Marc Almond : Please Stay

Score

Little more than an average, big beat-esque cover of a northern soul classic.

After making records with Roxanne Shante and Shawn Lee, Mekon (aka John Gosling) has teamed up with Soft Cell founder and Church Of Satan member Marc Almond. Marc’s currently enjoying something of a renaissance, what with the publication of a new book,

a Soft Cell reunion tour and accompanying DVD. Nevertheless, despite his best efforts, this is

little more than an average, big beat-esque cover of a northern soul classic.
