"John Bender is without any doubt, the protagonist, if not the inventor of a whole musical-genre known as Cold Minimal Wave/Synth. His synthesizer-sounds already carried elements of techno and acid-beats while techno was still to be invented a decade later. His voice and his partially sentimental and mourning lyrics made his music to something outstanding and extraordinary, unheard before in this mixture. His three self-released Lp's I don't remember now (1980), Plaster Falling (1981) and Pop Surgery (1983) are a must-have for every serious collector and interested person in such cold-wave/minimal-synth/techno-sounds. The Lps Plaster Falling and Pop Surgery contain selections from several Tape-releases known as Plaster: the Prototypes (1981), Packing List (1982), At the 4th Street Cage 1/83 (1983) & Do the Cage (1983) which compiled many of his recordings done between 1979 and 1983. Due to increasing requests, a limited 200 Reissue Box of the 2009-release is now available in a black fine linen-folder with silver embossing." (label info)
