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.
obscure music for nerdlings
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.
The new album from Indochine was released this week and we must say that they are returning in grace

1er Extrait de « Black City Parade », nouvel album sortie le 11 février 2013
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
