This one goes out to all the Canadian readers I met this weekend in both Toronto and Montreal. Thanks for saying hello and hope to see you guys again soon!
While this particular cassette has been posted before, the digital copy I had was full of digital skips/jumps (a sound I detest more than almost anything, though the snow removal alarm trucks in Montreal have quickly risen up the ranks), so I've made a new, high bitrate rip from a borrowed copy. If you're not already familiar with this one, you can expect another solid collection of French and Belgian coldwave greats, from the classics to the more obscure. Most prudent is the early version of Little Nemo's "Love Is a Lie," which does not appear elsewhere, including the expansive CD reissue. This is also Asylum Party and Neutral Project's first release, dating back to 1986! The label, Aspect D'Une Certaine Industrie, is also responsible for the excellent Leiv Traumas & Machina compilations, as well as the first Neutral Project cassette.
The tape is a must hear for fans of the coldest, bleakest guitar wave. Dark music for dark times.
