A Split-Second ‎– "Stained Impressions"(A Split - Second Self-released) 1985


What? Another Belgian minimal electronic Duo?
The beats are hard,the synths are phat, and the vocals are a curious combination of machismo and the self-conscious. Holding back as if not to disturb mum and dad downstairs.
A Split-Second went on to have something of a career in the EBM epoch,and are still at it today!?

Tracklisting:

1 Resignation
2 Night Closes In (I)
3 Hunger
4 Fade To Black (III)
5 Teargas And Champagne
6 Neurobeat
7 Short Cut
8 Stained Impressions (II)
9 Eargasm
10 Cold Life In The Brainbox
11 The Strip

Their single Flesh played at different speed started the New Beat movement.

I heard a rumor that there was some connection to Absolute Body Control.

Likely, its such a small place is Belgium, that everyone probably knew each other at least.

I like A Split Second, but the vocals were kind of stupid on this one.
