Video desciptions:

Taken from the COLD WAR night life LP released in 1982 on YUL Records. 24bit/96kHz rip from vinyl. This song is a synth masterpiece.

———————————————-

Minimal synth band from Norwich (UK) Formed in 1981, Testcard F were at the leading edge of Techno Pop, building their own electronic percussion and happily ignoring all musical conventions. From a modest start with a demo on Radio Norfolk (yes it used to feature local bands) the Testies amassed a small and enthusiastic following. Live performances were enjoyably shambolic and involved hitting litter bins, coat racks and other items salvaged from UEA to give a human feel to the proceedings.

Nostalgia – Indochine, the first ever synthpop record I've bought

April 26, 2008 · Posted in Electronic Music · Comment 

Started playing some old vinyls of mine and it caught me that this record was the first ever synthpop album I’ve ever bought – the start of an era :-)

I am not claiming it to be the best ever conceived but clearly something still worth listening to. Of course I had already explored some Depeche and Kraftwerk stuff on the radio, but this record was really something. I remember that you could buy the vinyl in different colors and that this extended single had a couple of nice bonus tracks. I never continued to listen to Indochine after that but I at least wanted to share with you a moment of truth – that kicked off my career in the electro space.

Cheers and have a great weekend
