null and void


Very european sounding minimal synth / new wave stuff from Orange County, 1980. Un Sedatif Ce Soir starts with prison fetish queerness - "I saw a guard in a gay bar, drinking water and gin, I saw him dancing with my boyfriend, he drove a volkswagon" - before turning into a faux-french darkwave dance track that is really really good.

From the Happiness and Contempt 12":

From The Dance's first album, In Lust, 1981. Eugenie Diserio's vocals on the first track remind me of Janet from Softboiled Eggies and vocals on the second song sound a lot like the B-52 girls.
