Debut on here and thanks to Fred for the share!
From March 1982 and featuring; Synthesizer – Kevin Komoda, Synthesizer, Vocoder – Bill Vorn and Vocals, Synthesizer – Tracy Howe. The sound of the future had certainly got cheaper! Formed in 1980 in Montreal, Canada they were Kraftwerk obsessives.
Produced by Pat Desario it will appeal to any synth fans with lots of analogue sounds. I do love a geeky gear list, Moog Source, Logan String Melody, Roland SH-5, MC-4 MicroComposer, TR-808, System-100, System-700, Vocoder SVC-350, Space Echo 201 and Casio VL-1. Wow!
Some of the lyrics may seem a little cringe worthy, but the sounds are pure, Canada didn’t release purely synth records!
There is a nod to Human League on track 4, love the instrumental ” Le Meilleur Des Mondes ” and the pure synthpop of “City Of Night.”
A rewarding first listen!
