Minimal Wave
Who would have thought that the pioneering electronic sound of Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe would lead to a scene that at the other end of the spectrum several years later would spit out the trite shite of the likes of Howard Jones and Erasure. Ah well, we guess they weren't to blame. For the uninitiated, check this re-release that ranks at the top of the birth of art house electronica circa '79/'80. Both cheeky and irreverent.
