Candidate- Side By Side LP

Here’s the lone LP by French synthsters Candidate, released in 1987. There’s very little to be found about this two piece (though they have a website).  There are a few other releases of theirs kicking around, including a split K7 and a split 7” with Gangrène. Would love to hear them, should anyone out there have a copy kicking around!

Otherwise, you can expect some killer minimal synth grooves, with a little bit of edgy guitar thrown in for good measure. a nice mix of tension and melody here, best for fans of Pink Industry, Kas Product, Strawberry Switchblade, etc. Here’s the info:

    Check out "Eye Of The Cyclone" from the 2005 CD, "Vote Don't Vote". Really nice EBM-ish track.

    I think I have that CD somewhere, if interested!

  2. DO YOU HAVE THE OTHERS REALISES?…

  3. Thanx a lot!

    I know Kas Product from the same city, Nancy, but I didn’t know this band.
