Here's an extra special rarity in demo form. Here we have a series of cassette demos recorded by Absolute, known for their handful of tracks on Vince Clarke and Eric Radcliffe. You can hear their officially released tracks over yonder, as part of the Reset Records collection that has been unofficially compiled. A handful of those Reset Records tracks appear here in demo form, so it's interesting to see how they differ from their studio counterparts. I'm also quite fond of the exclusive tracks here, especially "Take Her Away," a killer synthpop gem that should feel right at home for fans of mid-period Depeche Mode.
That said, I still can't seem to find much in the way of information about Absolute (aside from a little connection to the great John Fryer, who produced their second 7''), but someone uploaded what seems to be a promotional photo of the band on discogs. If the above image is correct, that might shed a skint of light on the subject. If there's anyone out there that can chime in with more, please don't hesitate! Otherwise, here's the info:
