ZYX are the duo of Inge Graf and Walter Zyx. They formed in Vienna, Austria in 1977. Committing themselves to the "aestheticisation of everyday life" in all fields of art, their works with video, photography, graphic design, and music are visually influenced by Pop art, Constructivism, Futurism, Dadaism, Beat culture, and the electronic rock of the 60's and 70's. They are considered pioneers of multimedia art worldwide, and continue to remain active to this day. 'Trust No Woman' is the debut album from ZYX, and was released in 1981 on the label RCA Music. It was recorded, mixed and mastered from march to august 1981 at their own Sun Moon & Stars Studio Vienna. They designed short, punchy songs around a barrage of analogue synths, rock-solid electro beats and tempered, low-key vocals. Cold and claustrophobic atmospheres collide with mechanical rhythms The songs are sung in English with a heavy German accent, and lyrics channel obscure existentialist dialogues. Despite the sombre tone, there lingers a touch of the enthusiasm that accompanied the influx of affordable technologies and new media of the era. It is a album that advances on the ideas set forth by The Human League, Cabaret Voltaire, Tuxedomoon and Yello. The vinyl comes housed in replica of the original jacket design, which features a photograph from a video still by ZYX. Each LP includes a copy of the double sided 11x11 full color insert that was included with the original pressing, which features photos and lyrics. Faced with the increasingly blurry line between human and machine, they approach their art with a still-potent blend of ambivalence, optimism, and melancholy.
