5 - JACKET WEATHER - WHEN SHADOWS MOVE - (LP) 
SYNTHETIC SHADOWS


Gassen formed the pioneering minimalist-electro-wave act Jacket Weather in 1982, mixing dual Casiotonekeyboards, real bass and drums - with the desolate imagery of the Arizona desert. "I loved the contrast ofthe synths with human percussion and the sensual backdrop of the desert," Gassen adds. "We thought thetension of my cold, distant vocals and synths with the bombastic rock rhythm section made our soundunique."Described in their day as a cross between Joy Division and Young Marble Giants, with some Wall Of Voodoomixed in, Jacket Weather etched their own minimalist sound. Staccato, expressionistic vocals accent thesnake-like mingling of the Casiotones, while a steady dance pulse backs the eerie mixture. Equallyenraptured with Euro-synth, English post-punk and Los Angeles punk-wave, Jacket Weather foundinspiration from such opposites as Our Daughters Wedding to the Suburban Lawns for their Casiotonesymphonies.The band recorded a cassette album in 1982, released a six-song vinyl EP in 1983 (titled "When ShadowsMove") and also recorded a complete album that remained unreleased - until now.

9 - THIS PERFECT DAY - NO FRILLS, JUST NOISE - (LP) 
SYNTHETIC SHADOWS


This Perfect Day was a band formed in Manchester, UK around 1981 by vocalist/blues harp player John Sama Snowden and synthesiser player Mik Hayes. John had the street-cred having previously been vocalist with The Limit and for a short time was the vocalist with The Passage during which time they played gigs alongside Joy Division. Mik, by contrast, had no street-cred, having been bass guitarist with a semi-pro cabaret/covers band, playing 2 hour sets of pop songs every Saturday night. The antagonism between the two, the fight between atmosphere and melody characterizes THIS PERFECT DAYs sound... in fact the name THIS PERFECT DAY is an attempt to convey this. It comes from the novel by Ira Levin in which everything on the surface is perfect, but underneath this surface is an underbelly of pure scum! Their music was never intended to be synth music in the classic Kraftwerk / Human League / OMD / etc sense. No decision was ever made to stop... life just took over... until now...
