Presage(s) (1980, UK, new wave) 
Tuesday, October 6, 2020, 03:52 PM - Music, - UK, Personal, English
A sampler on the 4AD label.

I'm a sucker for covers.
For the Psychotik Tanks' Lets have a party, I liked it so much I did a cover of their version at the Debutistenfestival in the Roermond youth center S'61 (51.197252, 5.9894048), November 3rd 1984.
As equipment I used a Yamaha PortaSound PC-100, a Sinclair ZX-81 computer with a program that could modulate the save-tone (that was the only audio the ZX could produce), a microphone of an old Sharp tape recorder, the Akai GXC-46 cassette deck as booster for a Sonolor Plein Vent transistor radio that acted as an amplifier (boy, did that work) and some kind of guitar.
The radio was the same one I used for the static noise in Jah Wobble's Blueberry Hill.
The microphone was taped to my mouth but let loose halfway. Anyway, a lot of fun (for me, not sure about the audience).



Side one:
1 Psychotik Tanks - Security Idiots
2 The Last Dance - Malignant Love
3 C.V.O. - Sargasso Sea

Side two:
1 Psychotik Tanks - Let's Have A Party
2 Modern English - Home
3 Spasmodic Caress - Hit The Dead
4 Red Atkins - Hunk Of A Punk

wieL - Let's have a party
