Oto- Purge An Urge & Mr Schumaker

Posted in 1980s, 1984, 1986, coldwave, french, oto, post-punk, synth on February 13, 2011 by Frankie Teardrop

Here’s a series of releases that haven’t been posted yet, to my knowledge, but are certainly worth hearing. Fans of dark synth music should be familiar with this French coldwave/synth band, for their track “Anyway” is a genre staple. The track also appeared on last year’s Cold Waves and Minimal Electronics compilation, and the remaining 7” tracks can be found here or here.

However, here’s the band’s other two releases- the 1986 Purge An Urge LP and the vocal version of the Mr Schumaker 7”, released in 1984. You can expect the same strange, yet danceable edge on all of these tracks.

EDIT: It’s been brought to my attention that the 1984 OTO release is a different project all together, with nothing to do with the excellent coldwave releases to follow! Hope you still enjoy it all the same!
