  • Fav synth 45?

    I picked up "Being Boiled" by The Human League a few weeks ago, and recently picked up this:



    ... which is like a minimal synth version of The Village Green Preservation Society and it got my wondering, what are people's favourite synth tracks on 45?

    A couple I'd nominate - the bonkers Samuel Hobo:


    Idle Rich is a big fan of this one:



    What are yours?

          Fad Gadget's first album is probably the record I play most. Truly amazing.

            Lush question. Recent favourites:

            The synth-disco Golden Reunion - Brain
            Yellow Bird - Right On (not on YT but a glitter beat synth monster - B-side to this and worth seeking out)

            Perennial poppy synth 45 loves:
            Art Interface - Secretaries in Heaven
            Einzelganger - Good Old Germany
            Denton and Cook - Tomorrow's World
            Mister K - Louisiana

            Cheap synth 45 loves:
            Roxy Music - Sultanesque - so great!
            Wout Steenhuis - Space Walk
            Sergenat Frog - Profile Dance (structured strange synth B-side of Butterfly Ball!!!)
            Spirit Duplicator—collectable, charming, affordable... and also socially networked on FB / Twitter / Instagram.

                Great recommendations so far. I'm going to enjoy giving them all a listen. That Fad Gadget is killer. I need to get some of their records. This is a fave, but pretty clearly not one I own. Stick it in the ungettable wants category.



                How did he go from here to Oxegyne?

                EDIT: Anna Cessna is also brilliant.

                  Anna Cessna reminds me of this stripped down piece of French sexiness:



                  (doesn't sound that much like it, admittedly, just the female vox I guess)

                    And talking of female vox, a recent fave:

                      Sonovox: that Dynamic Beat is pretty wonderfiul esp in conjunction with that video. It's making me affectionate/nostalgic for goths, something I thought I'd never say.

                            I love Sultanesque as mentioned above - people always ask what it is when I play it and are surprised that a) It's Roxy Music and b) It's written by Ferry not Eno.

                            A recentish one from Jim Backhaus from Kosmische



                            I mention that cos I see he's got another one coming out which I will pick up - not heard it but the cover is great (and mildly NSFW)

                              I got rid of the first Fad Gadget lp.( "Fireside Stories" was it called?)
                              Had four lps.
                              Only one I kept is "Incontinent".
