1st in a series of unparalleled reissues originating from the crucial Survival Records imprint. Survival Records is a UK label now operating for over 30 years. Formed in 1981 by Anne-Marie Heighway and David Rome, early releases included such iconic releases as Tik & Tok, Play, Hard Corps, and Richard Bone. For the 1st release in this series, Medical Records has fittingly chosen to present the work of Drinking Electricity which is the project of label curators Anne-Marie and David. David Rome previously had worked with Martin Lloyd in the Analysis (later to be evolved into Oppenheimer Analysis). Drinking Electricity formed in 1980 and released 2 singles on Pop Aural before forming Survival which housed the rest of their output during their 2 years as a band. This double LP collection showcases Drinking Electricity's full LP 'Overload' as well as compiling the band's multiple singles. The 1st LP 'Overload' was released in 1982 and has been long out of print since its original pressing. The 2nd LP contains the singles released during the 1980-1982 period. The work of Drinking Electricity can best be described as a perfect fusion of minimal synth-based new-wave with poignant, angular and stylized guitar-driven post-punk. Touching on sociopolitical topics intertwined into catchy, synth-heavy tracks that are also danceable, this collection will appeal to fans of early Gang Of Four, OMD, Fad Gadget, and the like. This is the 1st time these tracks have been compiled into one collection, presented in a double gatefold jacket with custom Drinking Electricity inspired artwork on high-quality double 180gr. transparent colored vinyl in a limited edition of 650 hand-numbered copies.
