Warm Leatherette is a song by Daniel Miller's project The Normal, released in 1978. The lyrics of Warm Leatherette reference J. Ballard's controversial 1973 novel Crash, which had heavily influenced Daniel Miller. Together with his college friend, he had worked on a film script based on the book, but after the project was abandoned, Miller decided to write a song encapsulating in 2 and a half minutes. The song was recorded in Miller's apartment using two Revox B-77 tape machines. Текст песни: See the breaking glass In the underpass See the breaking glass In the Normal. Warm Leatherette.

My labels for this are on the wrong way round too!

A true classic. Minimalistic, monotone and simple, but oh so effictive when it comes to making people a) dance and b) become curious. Both songs hits me every time I listen, but it's T.V.O.D. that forever will be the top masterpiece to me.

how can we know this is the first pressing of this record, that has been repressed so many times, please?

Original 1978 Release had TVOD as The A Side but the Mute 001 had been Repressed with Warm Leatherette as the A side As it in Time was getting more Club play on the Dance floor at the Time

A dear friend of mine once wrote - "It is amazing what can be done with only one tone". The record itself sounds amazing in every bit as if an accidental outcome over one's desire to create an all electronic single after years of fascination with the likes of Kraftwerk. As with The Cure's Camus study in 'Killing an Arab', 'Warm Leatherette' sumarises J. G. Ballard in merely couple of minutes. The flipside of 'TVOD' is another astonishing instant, mass irony over mass consumerism. An accomplishment by minimalism that even works as a pop record. Even though it never tried to sound like one. I wonder if the guy ever tried to stick the aerial. A synth masterpiece that still works. Grab it.

This is the single which started MUTE records, and has been re-released twice on CD by MUTE. After releasing this, Daniel Miller, aka The Normal, focused mainly on the MUTE label, with various small excursions back into music-making over the years.

This must be the most irritating monotone song ever. However this was in the late '70's, so I guess it was a milestone then. The song was covered by many artists, most notable: Grace Jones.

Tend to agree. It gets tremendous praise but I have to wonder how many people actually give the A-side a second listen. It's a bit too monotonous for its own good (even a one-finger synth line would have been welcome). Definitely a period piece and "of its time", but holds only a nostalgic value these days (unlike other early synth singles like "Unted", "Being boiled", "Private plane" etc). The B-side, on the other hand, is great and deserves much more prise than its overrated companion.

Must had an effect on you since your here bitchin' about it. It WAS meant to be primitive and simplistic that was the whole focus and it accomplished that feat with high accolades!If Grace Jones covered that tune that just is how significant it is!

And what a rubbish attempt Grace Jones made of it!... Although she's always been abit hit and miss hasnt she... The original though is a classic... I get the feeling you are not into monotone vocals ie Anne Clark haha.. I dare say 101-Rock To The Beat would really push you over the edge! ;)
