IMPLOG-HOLLAND TUNNEL DIVE, 12" EP, 1980, USA




Dazzling minimal synth treasure from Don Christiansen and Jody Harris (both ex-Contortions) that comes off like some turbo charged combination of B.E.F., Ike Yard and Jules Baptiste. So damn good, they even manage to make a cover of that old showtune warhorse "On Broadway" seem like a bright idea.

One of the incredibly great classics! "Holland Tunnel Dive" is easily one of the 10 best songs I've ever heard.

A great record to be sure. Always wondered what the cover art was like as I downloaded this as an MP3.

THE song in the eighties in the ZOPO Cafe, Horst NL. And still THE song when we old musicfreaks get together!!!!
Is it a drill, a mixer, a vacuumcleaner????? We never agreed.

Yep.
Another winner.
I'd like to say that you samaritans @ mutantsounds have given me a deeper education in Out sounds, and therefore broadened my own musical palette.

Here's to hoping there's a site like mutantsounds 30 years from now to dig up MY obscure stuff!! ;}
