Space - Carry on, Turn me on (1977, FR, electronic/disco) 
Tuesday, October 17, 2006, 11:50 PM - Music, - FR, English
Another commercial electronic record.
Space is mainly Didier Marouani and better known for their hit Magic Fly.
You can see the video of that song on http://www.space.tm.fr/videos-en.php with in the background the alpha version of Winamps Milkdrop visualization.
The cover is a still from this video.



Watch the drummer impersonating a rhythm box.
See the stand up synthesizer bully.

Pinker Tone - Louie Louie (1982, electronic/synth pop) 
Monday, October 16, 2006, 05:32 PM - Music, - ??, English
Nothing is known about Pinker Tone, the more is known about the song.
You can read everything you never wanted to know about Louie Louie and were afraid to ask at The Louie Louie Pages.



I don't think Pinker Tone has anything to do with the Spanish band The Pinker Tones.

Phew - Finale (1980, JP, electronic) 
Saturday, October 14, 2006, 09:48 AM - Music, - JP, English
Maybe you thought my other posts were weird.
Listen to this!
Phews first solo single, produced by Ryuichi Sakamoto.
An 8 on the White Noise Scale.



Later she made a self titled lp with Conny Plank, producer of the first and only excellent lp of the Eurythmics, and Can members Holger Czukay and Jaki Liebezeit.
In 1992 she made a cd ('Our Likeness' on Mute, cd stumm 96) with Alexander Hacke (yes, the one of P1/E), Christian Haas (DAF, Liaisons Dangereuses), Thomas Stern (Crime + the City Solution) and again Jaki Liebezeit.

Rexy - Don't turn me away (1979, UK, electronic/new wave) 
Wednesday, October 11, 2006, 10:30 PM - Music, - UK, English
I have not much to say about this. The a-side is highly recommended. Listen for yourself.
Vic Martin plays the keyboards, he also played in the Eurythmics and with Gary Moore.

Is this Phil Thornton who makes new age / world music records these days? Not bad, but this is different stuff!
Speaking Clock gets a 9 on the White Noise Scale.



Really good and totally unknown.

Phil Thornton - Vocals, keyboards
Kym Guest - Vocals
Mave McKnight - Percussion

Yes, it's him:

Mistral - Jamie (1977, NL, electronic/synth pop) 
Monday, October 9, 2006, 05:31 PM - Music, - NL, English
An early synth pop tune written by Robbie van Leeuwen (ex Shocking Blue). All sequencer stuff with a very female voice of Sylvia van Asten. The flip side is muzak.



Silly cover, but the mice liked it.
