Why has GV not booked these guys yet?

Dream guest appearances with UB40, Bjork, and Bernard Sumner are in order.

The last 808 State "performance" I saw in LA in 1993 at the Shrine was just one of them wandering around on stage mumbling into a microphone. Months later they were interviewed in a magazine talking about how much they hated playing for Americans.
20 years ago I know, but I still remember how terrible it was and leaving halfway through.

Shame because their 1990 show at the Spruce Goose was supposed to be the stuff of legends...

Didn't they play at Nocturnal Wonderland 1997?
