INFO > In forging a music career, German vocalist Billie Ray Martin (Birgit Dieckmann) sought to combine “the intellectual and the emotional” into her artistic output. To that end, Martin joined up with four lads from Birmingham to form Electribe 101. The first fruits of the group’s labor was “Talking With Myself”, which faired poorly as a single upon its initial release in 1988, but achieved greater success when re-released two years later. In 1998, the tune was revisited by Manifesto, which commissioned new remixes from Canny and The Beloved.
