Various Artists - Cold Wave #1 (Soul Jazz Records), 2x Orange Vinyl LP
Factory sealed. New.
Double vinyl LP pressing. Includes bonus fanzine. Cold Wave is a collection of current electronic artists who have been shaped by the early European cold wave artists of the late '70s and early '80s. Aside from the first electronic, no wave, and post-punk artists cited as influences ' Suicide, Patrick Cowley, The Normal, Martin Hannett, Laurie Anderson, Public Image ' this new generation also show an exquisitely open source of electronic and disparate influences, everything from Underground Resistance to Purcell, from Scientist to New Beat. Most of the featured artists are based in Europe and include Krikor, Dissemblance and VQOA from France, de Ambassade from the Netherlands, Moisture from Sweden, Kreidler from Germany, Céline Gillian and Carcass Identity from Belgium. One exception is FIT Siegel out of Detroit, connecting the electronic pathways of Europe to the Motor City. Distinctive contemporary music rooted in the 80s cold wave movement.
