va - Genotypes

Compilation of obscure underground 1980s electronic "minimal synth" music, released in 2010 by Genetic Music. The comp leans a little too goth for my liking, but the good songs are so damn good that they make the whole thing worthwhile. Tracks by Patrick Fitzgerald, Lee Negin, Alive She Died (yuck, what a cringey name), Mecano, Low Class (better known as Unovidual), Sieg Uber die Sonne, Cinema 90, Urge, Secession, Ciaran Harte (of the new wave band Glass), Hysterica Passio. But the big winner is "Burn My Eyes", by Steven Grandell (now Venus de Mars), taken from her self-released 1984 LP "Animal Angst". It's the first song on this comp and it's a killer.
