Hysterica Passio- Grey Over Life 12”

Posted in 1980s, hysterica passio, minimal, nyc, synth, wave on August 30, 2007 by Frankie Teardrop

I’ve only managed to dig up a few snippets about today’s band- NY based minimal¬†synth act Hysterica Passio. Drawing name inspiration from an outdated term for dementia used in Shakespeare’s King Lear, the band put out but one 12” single in 1982 before their demise two years later. These two tracks would be featured on various DIY Flexi-Pop compilations soon after, but would never record another note.

Naturally, I’ve no Youtube videos, band photos, or links to pick up their material in mass-quantities. The original vinyl single however, should one be lucky enough to find a copy online, fetches approximately $80.
