Before we get started on new posts for 2014, may I please direct your attention to the following re-rips and reuploads:
B-Movie- Singles (new rips of Nowhere Girl, Remembrance Day, Marilyn Dreams, & the addition of A Letter From Afar 12”)
Signal Aout 42- Pleasure and Crime (new rip)
U-Bahn X- Young Hearts of Europe (new rip, new 7”’ rip, + digitally inserting Jabba the Hutt on side B)
Otherwise, sorry for slacking! I have a bunch of new, unheard posts in the works, a new various artists compilation, as well as a few re-rips of classics from my own personal collection to keep us busy for the first part of the year. So with that in mind, let’s kick the year off with a minimal synth classic that I believe was posted before by the great BX, but has disappeared since. I came across a cheap, sleeveless copy of this one in a dollar bin here in NYC, played it once or twice at WIERD, and promptly forgot that I had it until recently, when reorganizing and digitizing my 7”’ collection. This one is a tried and true killer, a bizarre electronic romp from 1984 with thick synth bass, disco strings, and eerie female vocals. The best analogy I can think of is dystopian disco- the kind of dance music that you’d dance to in Blade Runner or Logan’s Run, for example… The chorus is especially killer, and pays off in spades (human is so humorless- love that line). Fans of JYL/Angela Werner should also love this one. The b-side is equally stunning, a more unsettling synth track with a flamenco flair and backwards masked vocal samples.
This is the only single Sally Patience released, and no one knows what happened to her afterwards… Just a brief moment, as some of the best gems tend to be.
