compass kum'pas / LP+7" / MR-010

Originally released in 1980, 'Compass Kum'Pas' was the debut album by the Liverpool duo consisting of Alan Gill and Dave Hughes. The early incarnations of the band featured David Balfe (later in The Teardrop Explodes) and Andy McCluskey (later to form O.M.D.). Alan Gill also was a member of The Teardrop Explodes at one point down the line. The LP was critically acclaimed but unfortunately flew under the radar in terms of revenue generation. Medical Records presents this seminal work on vinyl for the 1st time in over 30 years. The album can best be described as a pastiche of passionate synth-pop and highly restrained post-punk. At times very danceable pop is sharply contrasted with moody synth and vocal passages shrouded in a thick cloud of melancholy. The track "Destiny (Dalek I Love You)" is a highly catchy synth hit and was a 7" single at the time. "8 Track" tells the peculiar tale of the love affair with a piece of recording equipment. "Freedom Fighters" grabs you with sharp synth hooks and drags you to the dancefloor. The cover version of "You Really Got Me" is a very stripped down and restrained interpretation with angular chopped guitar. The LP is a synergistic cross between the stylings of early O.M.D. synth-pop, minimalist post-punk guitar, and a likeness to the piecemeal song structure of Van Dyke Parks. LP includes a bonus insert with early photos and a special written piece on the band. As an extra to the LP, a bonus flexi-disc is included that includes the B-sides "Happy" and "This Is My Uniform". Presented with much love on high-quality 180gram hot pink vinyl in a limited edition of 1000 hand-numbered copies. For fans of early analog synth-pop ;)
