"Warm Leatherette" is a song by Daniel Miller, released by Mute Records in 1978. The song has been covered by Duran Duran in concert.

About the song Edit

The song was released as the B-side to "T.V.O.D." in 1978, the only single by Miller's musical project The Normal. It was the very first release on his Mute Records label, and an early example of the then-burgeoning industrial music genre. The lyrics of the song reference J.G. Ballard's controversial 1978 novel Crash.

Miller plays a series of sawtooth waves on a Korg 700S synthesizer on the recording. The track was recorded using 2 ReVox B-77 tape machines in Daniel Miller's apartment.

Duran Duran performed the song during their run of ten Broadway shows in New York City in November 2007, played as part of an electro medley portion of the setlist.

Lyrics Edit

See the breaking glass

In the underpass

See the breaking glass

In the underpass

Warm leatherette



Hear the crushing steel

Feel the steering wheel

Hear the crushing steel

Feel the steering wheel



Warm leatherette



Warm leatherette



Warm leatherette

Melts on your burning flesh

You can see your reflection

In the luminescent dash



Warm leatherette



A tear of petrol

Is in your eye

The hand brake

Penetrates your thigh

Quick - Let's make love

Before you die



On warm leatherette

Warm leatherette



Warm leatherette

Warm leatherette

Warm leatherette



Join the car crash set
