Minimal Compact
Creation Is Perfect

Dutch post-punk band Minimal Compact formed in 1980 and were famed for their energy, unpredictability and intensity. Creation is Perfect sees them under the guidance of long time collaborator and post-punk legend Colin Newman of Wire as they re-record some classic tracks, giving extra hue to their original compositions.

Minimal Compact
Creation is Perfect

A band often overlooked when discussing the white-hot creativity of post-punk, Creation Is Perfect finally does justice to the back catalogue of Amsterdam band Minimal Compact, renowned for their unsettled, propulsive rhythms and riotous live shows. Seven fan favourites, plus a new track ‘Holy Roller’, are re-recorded with Wire’s Colin Newman behind the production desk. Comes as a 80-page hardbound book including CD, on top of regular vinyl and CD releases.

Malka Spigel
Rosh Ballata

Malka Spigen! She was a member of Minimal Compact until they split up in 1988, but in 1993 she made something remarkable: the Rosh Ballata album. This is a set of music that is simultaneously happy-days nineties pop, experimental international trip-hop, and much more besides. Features contributions from Colin Newman and Anton Shammas. Reissued by Swim.

Minimal Compact
One (Statik Dancin')

Underground 80’s club favourites Minimal Contact play relentlessly compulsive, bass driven tracks with an economical, stripped back funk/disco sound, recorded with a raw, punk rock production aesthetic that earned them a large, cult following across Europe and the US. This remastered reissue of their 1981 mini album includes the classic track ‘Statik Dancin’.
