Description: This is a very nice copy of the rare mini-album made by US wave group System 56, which was issued by the band's own Detour label in 1982.
Additional Info: Excellent minimal wave from the US midwest, and highly established and sought-after by minimal synth fans the world over. This was definitely System 56's best record with great tracks like "Brave New Toys", "Hands of a Stranger", "You're Only Dreaming", etc. I also dig the cover art quite a bit. Band leader Steve Simenic told me he threw a lot of copies of this record into a dumpster when he moved to the West Coast in 1989, which partly explains it's rarity. Anyway... great record, you need it, enough said. Don't miss!
