Medical Records, in association with the Crispy Nuggets blog have lovingly put together this collection of rare and unreleased synthpop and new wave tracks, recorded between 1980 and 1983.
This is the REAL sound of the 80s underground. While artists like Gary Numan and The Human League were looking pretty on Top Of The Pops, these guys were barely a blip on the mainstream radar. I guess these days it’s a lot easier to discover underground music via the internet, but back then bands relied on fanzines and playing seedy club venues so it’s great to see these tracks getting a second chance.
There are two tracks here from The Electronic Circus featuring Chris Payne who worked with none other than Gary Numan on the song ‘Pleasure Principle’. You also get great tracks by Psychic Youth, Shazam and Arto amongst others.
Presented on high-quality 180gram splatter paint on transparent green vinyl this is the perfect compilation for synth freaks and fans of Numan, OMD, Human League and Kraftwerk.

First two tracks are, honestly, the finest pieces of slinky, naive synthpop exotica you'll ever wish for....seriously beautiful pieces that will stay with you forever. The stuff of dreams.
