Salaried Man Club ‎– "Gray Cross" ( Vanity Records ‎– VAT1) 1981

More Foggy electronic minimalism on cassette from Japan's Vanity Records by the mysterious Salaried Man Club. 
Very little more than rudimentary fuzzy drum box rhythms interspersed by lonely basic synth noises that barely get far beyond the white noise setting.Punctuated by vocodered vocals which bring back images of a depressed Metal Mickey crossed with Marvin the Paranoid Android.
It conjures a vision of a version of the Exorcist as made by Nintendo for a Game Boy mark 1, sellotaped to a circuit bent Speak and Spell machine possessed by a Demon who has escaped a pixelated Sinclair Spectrum ZX version of Hell.
Another classic from the pre-cambrian waters of electronica.

Tracklist:

A1Martial Music (5.09)
A2Fe.(5.02)
A3The Thought Of Y (7.14)
A4Cinerama (5.54)
