Release Notes
  • LP includes insert and fanzine

Following on from the superb first volume, here is the second volume of electronics, synth pop, cold wave and minimal tracks culled from the archives of the legendary COLOR TAPES UK cassette label from the 1980’s. These tracks originally came out as micro editions on cassette back then some of which are also unreleased too. It includes rare tracks by the likes of: Lives of Angels, Disintegrators, The Lord, WeR7, Mystery Plane and Berserk in a Hayfield. 180 gram vinyl edition with full colour poster plus a rare reprint of issue one of Color Tapes’ own “Purple Twilight” fanzine from 1985, that features articles on such bands as Lives of Angels, Modern Art, Legendary Pink Dots, and Cleaners From Venus. A superb document from the 80’s UK cassette underground scene. Remastered from the original source tapes by Denis Blackham, this is a must-have for synth and cold wave collectors! “There’s some real gold inside, not least in The Lord’s kosmic electro-garage-punk mission, ‘Transvision’, or the wiry EBM of Beserk In A Hayfield’s ‘Pulse’, but also the swirling noise blow-out of WeR7’s ‘Masterful of Ceremonies (Edit)’, and the flanging garage-punk strut of ‘Elixir Vapor’ by Disintegrators, plus a handful of icy, cold and crisp 808 workouts Lives of Angels and Body Electric.” —Boomkat.
