Deluxe two CD edition includes bonus remix disc. Steve Bronski has teamed up with singer Stephen Granville and programmer Ian Donaldson to create an updated line-up of this classic, much-loved sythn-pop band. The Age Of Reason is their first in 22 years! With The Age Of Reason, the trio pay homage to the origins of Bronski Beat through an inventive and inspired reworking of their landmark debut album The Age Of Consent. But, crucially, they also present a template for the future direction of this latest Bronski Beat line-up with three all new songs and a generous offering of celebratory dance mixes thereof! The first of these new tracks is an inventive cover of the queercore disco classic, Sylvester's 'Stars' (written by the scene legend Patrick Cowley), which has been given a refreshing electro-soul makeover. There's an all new song 'I'll Be Gone' that celebrates, with Bronski Beat's trademark searing vocals, the euphoric self-realization gained in ditching a less than perfect love affair. There's also palpable evidence that Bronski Beat have lost none of their social campaigning and gay activist zeal by virtue of the inclusion of their heartbreaking tribute in song to the recently murdered Brazilian transexual Dandara dos Santos. 'Flower For Dandara' is a sensitive, sung eulogy to the victim of a callous lynching by a gang of transphobic thugs; an act that was so horrific that it made global headlines.
