Sympathy Nervous ‎– "Polaroid" (Vanity Records ‎– VA-S1) 1980

There have been aspersions cast on the authenticity of the date that Sympathy Nervous made his prescient recordings.This single, especially the a-side, sounds very,almost too modern era techno.
There is absolutely no doubt as to when 'Polaroid' was set to tape in Yoshifumi Niiuma's living room.....1980.No  sophisticated sequencing required, just controlled voltage,and ,or, tape syncing. Not just ground breaking, he made the whole mine shaft to the mother-lode.
The other two tracks are a bit weirder, "D.B.TV" (Directed by TV) especially, sounding like  the soundtrack to Forbidden Planet being transformed into a fruit smoothie.
