808 State - Eletronic (UK)


808 State are an English electronic music group, formed in 1987 in Manchester, taking their name from the Roland TR-808 drum machine. They were formed by Graham Massey, Martin Price and Gerald Simpson, and they released their debut album, Newbuild, in September 1988.

The band secured commercial success in 1989, when their song "Pacific State" was picked up by BBC Radio 1 DJ Gary Davies.



Ninety is the second full-length album and first on ZTT Records by British electronic music group 808 State, released in 1989 and featuring the single "Pacific State" which reached number 10 in the UK Singles Chart on November 1989. It was released in the US as Utd. State 90, without "The Fat Shadow (Pointy Head Mix)," but with other bonus tracks.

Slant Magazine listed the album at number 54 on its list of the "Best Albums of the 1980s" saying "A thrilling expansion of the possibilities for acid house and arguably the best LP ever produced in the style"

In September 2008, Ninety was re-released as a 'deluxe edition', the original album remastered by Graham Massey, and a bonus disc of remixes and tracks previously exclusive to Utd. State 90 which included:

"Pacific (Britmix)" – 4:23
"Cobra Bora (Call The Cops Mix)" – 4:53
"Donkey Doctor (GMEX Mix)" – 4:45
"Boneyween" – 6:12
"Kinky National" – 4:01
"State To State" – 5:56
"Revenge Of The Girlie Men" – 4:13
"Magical Dream (Instrumental)" – 5:09
