"Highly rated synthi-pop-wave from France, early-mid '80s. 'The Dream Machine' collects X Ray Pop's first three 7-inch singles plus eight songs from their demo cassette, never released on vinyl before. Their songs are short, concise and well structured; richly textured, moving at a quick speed with hardly a pause. The demos show a sense of humor, vitality and carefree playfulness. They were influenced by many, including Erik Satie, Brigitte Bardot, Suicide and Young Marble Giants. Also reminiscent of the Mo-Dettes, early OMD or Algebra Suicide, X Ray Pop could be the missing link to Stereolab. All songs have been remastered for vinyl directly from the original master tapes. Each LP comes in a neon yellow jacket with an 8-page booklet full of unreleased photos, original artwork and lyrics. 28 years later, this is the first time since the original issue that the songs of X RAY POP are reappearing on vinyl again, but is the world ready?"
