Sympathy Nervous
Sympathy Nervous

Since 2011, champion reissuers Minimal Wave have had their eye on Yoshifumi Niinuma aka Sympathy Nervous, a fellow with a passion for German minimalism and building his own equipment from scratch. This was his debut album, released in Japan in 1980 and putting a distinctive and inventive spin on groovy, polyrhythmic pre-techno and tape manipulations.

Scenes de la Bohème
Standing In The Rain

It’s a surprise that we’ve got Scenes De La Boheme’s Standing In The Rain at all. The solo project of one Anthony Waites, Scenes De La Boheme only released one hyper-limited 7” back in 1982. The two Talk Talk-ish art-rock tracks were never sent out to the NME or BBC or whatever, and the project lay dormant until the 7” started to circulate among collectors in the 2000’s. Now interest in Scenes De La Boheme has grown enough that Minimal Wave have issued Standing In The Rain, an LP that brings together the 1982 single with four unreleased cuts. This autumnal set is an outstanding example of golden-age synth-pop/coldwave.
