Lets go back to Australia, and get a hefty dose of antipodean minimal synth from the Orwellian watershed year of 1984.All downhill from there, creatively, politically and culturally.
This album is an absolute Minimal Wave classic from the prime period BM (Before Midi), when man and machine were still in balance. Fingers were largely still needed to press the keys and buttons in real time, and computers had less processing power than a Tamagotchi.
Every track on here is a brutal slice of stark, 'Phat' analogue beauty, uncluttered by banks of computer driven synth modules.The only thing that was digital in 1984 was generally your wrist watch.
This compilation of Australian minimal electronicists is easily up there with the best of the European hordes.....but it was from Austrailia.....so it was ignored.
