Teenage Engineering OP-1 cover of Daniel Miller’s “Warm Leatherette”

June 25, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

A cover of warm leatherette by the normal put together on a teenage op1.

“Warm Leatherette” was released as the B-side to “T.V.O.D.”, the only single by Miller’s musical project The Normal. It was the very first release on his Mute Records label, and an early example of the then-burgeoning industrial music genre. The lyrics of the song reference J.G. Ballard’s controversial 1973 novel Crash.

Miller plays a series of sawtooth waves on a $150 Korg 700S synthesizer. It was recorded in his apartment using 2 ReVox B-77 tape machines. With ‘Mute 1’ written on it, it sold thirty thousand copies

And here’s the original version:

“O.K HERES A PUZZLE, THE NORMAL,ROBERT RENTAL BECOMES DANIEL MILLER.
THERE WAS NO VID FOR THIS SONG,SO I MADE ONE UP FROM A LIVE CLIP FROM WHEN DANIEL MILLER GIGGED WITH ROBERT RENTAL AS THE NORMAL,THIS WAS THE ONLY SINGLE FROM THE NORMALSO ENJOY.”
