Act - Snobbery And Decay

After Claudia Brucken left the band Propaganda in the mid '80s she hooked up with electro pioneer Thomas Leer and recorded an album as Act. 1987's Snobbery And Decay was the first single, and appears here in 12" remix form. It's a big synth-funk tune with dry lyrics (you'd expect as much with that title!) - the first half of which is a dubby version of the tune with sampled snippets of dialogue from the old TV show Moonlighting thrown over the top of it - yes, Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepherd trading their sharp barbs, completely uncredited on the sleeve.
