Wierd Presents: Cold Waves + Minimal Electronics 1

(Angular) Used 2xLP $16.00 (Out-of-stock)

Originating largely in small towns and isolated, non-metropolitan areas of France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, and The Netherlands, as a raw, aggressive antidote to the superficial excesses of commercial new wave in the early ’80s, the artists here produce a new form of electropop that combines the sounds of German electronic bands of the ’60s and ’70s with early industrial bands of the UK. This 2010 comp anthologizes songs from ultra-rare seven-inches, lost radio sessions and cassette tapes by Absolute Body Control, Nine Circles, Linear Movement, Opera Multi Steel, Bal Paré, Eleven Pond, The Vylies, End Of Data, The Actor, Ausgang Verboten, Jeunesse D’Ivoire, OTO, Ruth, Stereo, The Neon Judgement, Land Of Giants, and Days Of Sorrow. Includes lots of previously unseen photos, extensive liner notes, free download card.
