VINYL VERSION: www.deadwaxrecords.es

In 1983, after the release of their last known output (the splendid ‘A Personal View’ e.p.), Kinetic Ideals recruited a new drummer, Patrick Duffy, firing their Oberheim DMX drum machine shortly after. With flesh and blood behind the kit again, new songs were written and three of them were recorded at Toronto’s Wellesley Studios in the spring of 1984. The ‘This Face’ session contains some of their strongest material yet but back then no record company stepped up to provide the band a home and all the songs remained unreleased.

Almost 30 years later, Dead Wax Records is proud to announce the release of the ‘This Face’ e.p. featuring the three session tracks plus an additional song recorded at Toronto’s Manta Sound studios later in the winter of 1985. They have been digitized from the original master tapes by Peter J. Moore of Cowboy Junkies’ The Trinity Session fame, carefully remastered by Nicolás Zúñiga of Dead Wax Records to please the ears, retaining all their original analogue power and glory.

Dead Wax Records Madrid, Spain

Dead Wax Records is an independent label just like the ones in the early 80s. We do everything ourselves out of pure passion for music, focusing mainly on post-punk, minimal & cold wave, synthpop, goth rock / pop. Quality music always, lost forgotten jewels in need of a second chance, recently discovered treasures that will see the light for the first time.

Music doesn’t stop on the Dead Wax!!
