Informatics – “Dance to a Dangerous Beat” – [Dark Entries]
Get out your weights and get ready to bop! This music definitely sounds like the 80s, and indeed it was recorded between 1980 and 1985. Created with analog synths before the time of sampling equipment, this highly energetic, rubberbandy music comes out of garages and art school basements in Melbourne. The band is together again and performing with updated equipment, but this snapshot of a time when the musicians had to innovate with four-track tape machines is delightful.
