in strict tempo


Dave Ball - In Strict Tempo (1983)

Although it lacks the energy and personality of Marc Almond, I still appreciate this first solo album from Dave Ball of Soft Cell. Genesis P. Orridge does guest vocals on two tracks, so everything is ok.

2 Belgen


2 Belgen - Essential (2007) + Energy (Special DJ Mix) (1986)

A career-spanning collection of 80's musics by 2 Belgians from Belgium + a (mediocre?) mid-80's single. Their early stuff kinda reminds of early Cure or Associates on tracks like Cocaine but then Lena is fullblown italo so like go figure.

Thursday, Feb. 11th - Post-Punk Junk Mix Night (feat. Car Cemetery)
