Trans-X’s Pascal Languirand Is Living on Video for Rockers’ Block

Watch the synth-pop pioneer try to remember his glorious past



Some music artists have released literally hundreds of songs over the years, to say nothing of the ones deemed too garbage-y to release. BlastEcho wondered if those involved in recording so many songs could remember them all. Enter Rockers’ Block.

For each Rockers’ Block contestant, we play five random songs from their catalog each song from the beginning to see how long it takes for them to guess (well, maybe guess isn’t the right word) the correct song. Then once they do (hopefully), they talk a bit about the song.

BlastEcho caught up with Pascal Languirand–the founder and sole remaining original member of Trans-X– at Ravinia in Highland Park, IL, just prior to his set on the second show of the Lost 80s Live package tour.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the release of “Living on Video,” without question Trans-X’s biggest-ever worldwide hit. Naturally, BlastEcho avoided that song and, instead, concentrated on some very obscure ones peppered throughout the Trans-X catalog. Suffice it to say, Languirand struggled with four-fifths of them, but he nailed one quite easily.

See for yourself:
