LM Recordsのサブレーベル Broadbean Recordsからリリースされた81年のオブスキュア・ミニマルシンセ。NGLYや Helena Hauff といったアートストのプレイリストにも挙げられているTake Suicide。B2の「Japanese Girls」も訳がわからないですね。
Originally released in 1981 by Broadbean Records, a sub-label of LM Records, Flo & Andrew only release ‘Take Suicide’ was home-recorded and home-mixed by the duo in Bologna, using early drum machines like the Boss Dr-55 and the Korg Kr-55, analog synthesizers, guitar, saxophone, tape loops. Flo & Andrew music is truly unique and exemplifies the fact that limitation can be the perfect source for creativity. The title-track and ’To Committ Suicide’ travel through contort and nervous synth sounds and loops, taking somehow inspiration from the No Wave heroes, while ‘Japanese Girls’ is nothing less than a beautiful minimal electronics track in the mythology of the futuristic rise of Japanese country.
Recently (re)discovered, ‘Take Suicide’ is a milestone of the European minimal synth singles and is not really a coincidence that a young generations of producers take it as inspiration (you can see ‘Take Suicide’ floating in the tracklist of artists as Helena Hauff and NGLY). Another must have in your collection / record bag!
