4.0 out of 5 stars For 80s electro aficionados, 3 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vicious Pink (Expanded Edition) (Audio CD)
Great to see - at last - a CD issue from these underdogs of the UK's 80s electronic scene, with some bonus mixes included. Of course, most early electronica/synthpop from the 80s was new and experimental, sometimes primitive, very underground-sounding and sometimes with weird or dodgy vocals. Vicious Pink (great name!) fit the bill and had some club play with Cccan't You See, which is included here in several versions. No mention, though, of American promo service Razormaid, whose re-edits of Cccan't You See (after it had become a forgotten bargain bin flop) helped give the track new life on dancefloors and was how I came to be aware of the band's existence. Listening to five successive mixes of Cccan't You See may prove too much for some, but at least they are included (though other versions have been omitted). Mastering is clean and pristine though quite loud and with a fair bit of compression. Essential for music collectors and for fans of the 80s synth sound, but probably with little appeal outside that market.
