Various ‎Artists – "Subtle Hints" (Sane Records ‎– SANE 001) 1983

14 electropop trax from 'Undiscovered Bands'....it says on the cover.
And they remained so, despite Sane Records' noble attempt to find the new Human League.
It's not easy to write a pop tune you know? and this album is full of 14 noble attempts to get into the top forty, and failing miserably.From a minimal synth/cold wave point of view,its all jolly fine stuff, scoring highly on the analogue synth sounds(although they could have been harsher and chunkier?) front and even higher for obscurity.....which is essential for minimal wave fans.
