Candidate & Gangrène-split tape, tape,1985(?),France

Very rare electronic experimental tape from France,the 1st release of Permis De Construire label.Candidate is a duo experimenting with electronics reminding streched out DIY synth pop in the vein of AD Conspiracy,Transparent Illusion,and hints of Absurd label artists(Door and the Window,Gerry and the Hollograms,Bet Lynch Legs,etc),Funboy Five,etc.Gangrène on the other hand are much more "electropunk" oriented (!) reminding me some Crawling Chaos recordings with female vocals, some frustrated angst-y rhythms and vocals ,reminding "Nag nag nag" era Cabsall these in a DIY folder!Excellent tape!
