"A Compilation of Minimal Wave from around the world '79-'85. 'The Hidden Tapes' features rare, unreleased, and licensed tracks from as far as Japan and the former Yugoslavia. Most of the bands on this compilation recorded on 4-track tape in their bedroom studios, while two of them went further to collaborate by sending tapes through the mail. The sounds on this record range from raw proto-industrial to naive danceable Belgradian new wave, to filmic synthesizer music to more complex, vocal-driven melodic synthpop. Featured artists include DANTON'S VOICE, OSKAROVA FOBIJA, THE FAST SET, SYMPATHY NERVOUS, PAS D DEUX, UNOVIDUAL & TARA CROSS, SS-SAY, ROBERT LAWRENCE + MARK PHILLIPS, KYM AMPS and RESERVE, all lovingly remastered. Limited edition of 999 numbered copies, pressed on 180-gram vinyl, and housed in heavy printed jacket accompanied by printed inner jacket with photos and info." (label info)
