Iko- ’83 LP/CD-R Bootleg

I see this one was one hosted on 7” From the Underground but has since expired. Otherwise, here’s the entire discography of Canadian minimal synth outfit Iko. The band released one LP and one 12” record, both in 1982, before disbanding.

This particular CD-R bootleg features two extra tracks not originally pressed on the LP, though one of the tracks made its way onto the Tribute to Some Bizzare series. Otherwise, there’s little info available outside of what Alessandro has dug up, so click there to read the proper credits, and otherwise, here’s the tracklisting and artwork:

Iko- ’83 LP/CD-R
1. Elevator
2. Gonadotropic Synthesis
3. Subway 49
4. Communication Off

    Nice album – another example of the dreamy minimal 80s music that was mostly overlooked and forgotten. Your blog is really great and I hope you keep it up. Minimal 80s is my favorite type of music. Thanks for all of these rare treats that show more of what the early 80s music had to offer. Thanks a lot! 🙂

  2. Sooooo good from start to finish. Thanks for sharing.

    • It is being reissued this year by Medical Records (medical-records.org). Full restoration and remastering from the original 1/4″ analog tapes with bonus tracks in a 2LP form!
