V/A - Killed By Synth Vol.1 2012

Last but not least on this icy Thursday a compilation with sixteen nervous synth punk tracks from the early days and I was really surprised about the title. We all know the fantastic records that came out mostly in the 90s and unfortunately not much follows nowadays but sometimes something comes along, like this beautiful record and this is a bit chaotic: all in all are fourteen songs on it and the tracklist is not correct either but I completed it and now everything is in order. All bands from the States and most tracks are from rare singles that hardly anyone knows, including me, so an excellent reason to look for it. Healthy mix definitely and a synthesizer can also please. I'm curious if Volume 2 follows. What do you all mean?

  2. Indeed jonder and wildevilman! Never seen Wisconsin's legendary Oil Tasters on a compilation and NG probably not either. Wonder if any of the stuff could be catagorized as 'Difficult'. Anyways stellar on both your parts!!

  3. This is a cool comp, and it's too bad there was never a second volume. There are a couple of errors in the credits. Track 16 is actually "Nothing to Hide" by Nervous Gender (not "I'm Sorry" by the Big Boys). A-Mos were better known as the Algebra Mothers (A-MOMS). And the Oil Tasters (not Testers) didn't have a synth player -- what you hear is a saxophone! Thank you for sharing this.

  4. I fix the tracklist and I hope now it's okay - Thx jonder for the info. I ripped this one in 2012 and the credits were wrong and I put just sixteen tracks on it and keep everything else that way.
