Reiterating upon earlier minimal & cold wave posts, I’ve finally found time to get back to this essential release (Stone’s Throw STH2223, 2010-01-26) … Here’s three tracks, from Madrid, Spain (1980), Brighton, UK (1982) and Seneffe, Belgium (1985), and a few extra links. Can’t wait for volume two, actually!
