“Repaints the neon-lit underpasses of Kraftwerk and Neu!, while irregular, perverted, wavering synths recalls and elaborates on DAF and forgotten 80s electropop” – The Guardian
The History: Tim Gane is the leader of Stereolab (a band beloved by everyone from Pharrell Williams to Blur). He started his musical career as a purveyor of harsh noise in the early 1980s under the alias Unkommuniti releasing self-financed cassettes on Black Dwarf Wreckordings (recently anthologised by Vinyl On Demand). Tim was a key member of McCarthy from 1985-1990. In 2007 he composed his first film soundtrack, La Vie D’Artiste, alongside longtime musical collaborator Sean O’Hagan (The High Llamas), and has recently contributed keyboards to the latest Deerhunter album, Fading Frontier.

Husband and wife DIY synthpop duo are fresh from releasing their hard, dark and shiny second LP “Radiation”. Via Tasmania and Scotland, Brigitte Rose and Chris Black have been proud purveyors of unpolished on purpose, irony-free synthpop since 2010.
“Highly charged electronica with incredibly addictive melodies … Perhaps one of the year’s most enjoyable albums”
