I.Q.-S/T, 12\" EP, AUSTRALIA, 1983 MP3/Flac
Australia's Ken Davis has been dishing out textbook New Age treacle (sample title: Pan Flutes By The Ocean) to a global audience of yoga mat-bound acolytes for quite some time now (his youtube hits come close to 4 million), but back in the early 80's, he could be found helming arch new wavers IQ, who despite having no relation to the wince-inducing UK neo-proggers of the same name were similarly steeped in pose and emulation. Youtube clips show 'em wielding dual Fairlights and fronted by a pouty Gary Numan clone while dressed like extras from A Flock Of Seagulls video shoot (it's un-embeddable but you can check out the video here), but the hooky arpeggiating arithmetic of their structures and plaintive vocalizing (sometimes in a vaguely later-Hawkwind style) will launch several of these ditties squarely at the nearest minimal synth geek's g-spot. Thanks to blog friend Ward for dredging up this one!
