Sensation- Trafic 7”

Fantastic French coldwave with a slightly poppy edge here, released on Slim Productions, who boast a rather impressive roster of French obscurities and hits alike. Especially recommended for fans of Taxi Girl, with a little more bite. Release date unknown, not even listed on the record itself. A true mystery, for those who like that sort of thing. Educated guesses via catalog number place this as a 1985 release, but who can be sure of these things. Sounds like 1981 to me, but what do I know? Take a listen, take a guess!

  1. Sounds earlier than 1985 to me too? I like it though.


  2. Hi,
    First I have to thank you for sharing that great album by Carl Matthews.
    You really shocked me by posting it on your great blog.

    The album you posted here is on ICR label.
    Carl Matthews (with his alias "CAM") has just one more album on ICR which is as follows.

    Is it possible for you to share that one too?


    CAM – Quid Rides
    Label:ICR – ICR 20

    Sad to say Old & New is the only Carl Matthews recording I own! Will keep my eyes out for the CAM release though! Never say never!
