Tuxedomoon - Scream with a view (1979, US, new wave/electronic) 
Sunday, November 26, 2006, 06:40 PM - Music, - US, English
I always liked this second 12" (and 4th release) from Tuxedomoon and it gets a 6 on the White Noise Scale. I saw Tuxedomoon again last year and they were exactly the same as 25 years ago, including the (nowadays) lame light show. No fun anymore.

Soft Cell - Memorabilia (1981, UK, electronic/new wave) 
Friday, November 24, 2006, 06:41 PM - Music, - UK, English
Not the first single from Soft Cell as I thought, but the third as you can read on the Marc Almond site. Anyway the first 12" and a good one. About the neurotic side of travelling and a consumer nightmare. Musically well expressed. A 7 on the White Noise Scale.



Produced by Daniel Miller of the Normal and owner of Mute records.

The Scientific Americans - Beyond Fiscal Distress (1980, US, new wave/dub) 
Thursday, November 23, 2006, 06:05 PM - Music, - US, English
A 'Killing Joke - Nervous System' like concept. A 9" flexi-disk in a kind of envelope with a lot of artwork. All included in this post.
The music has a dub like Jah Wobble and a hysteria voice like Devo.
Here is a web page about the band. Made by one of its members.

And here you can find another ep 'Beyond Rational Thought' of them.

Killing Joke - Nervous System (1979, UK, new wave/gothic) 
Wednesday, November 22, 2006, 06:29 PM - Music, - UK, English
The first, double B-sided, 10" of Killing Joke. Less 'heavy' than their later work, more dub-like.
It was not packed in a proper sleeve, just the front on a sheet of paper and some cards where included.



1 Nervous System [4:19]
