Regard- Demo Recordings

Posted in 2000, 2000s, coldwave, demo, french, post-punk on March 25, 2011 by Frankie Teardrop

Here’s a real treat to kick off the weekend. Here we have the demo recordings of Regard, a killer coldwave/post-punk band. Curiously enough, while the band hails from Italy, the majority of their lyrics and titles are in French. Their only officially released tracks were issued on the (absolutely essential) VM Cinque compilation, posted here at Crispy Nuggets. I was just informed today that this band is NOT the Italian Regard, but a NEWER French band with the same name, which definitely clarifies things a bit!

While the tracks here are a little less upbeat, you can expect some excellent sounds here: gloomy vocals, atmospheric guitars, and warm synths. Definitely a must for fans of Formes Nouvelles, Mémoires D’automne, and the first Résistance record, to name a few. Don’t miss out on this one!
