Information/Write-up

Here's the scarce 12'' from Glamatron, released in 1981. Some excellent minimal synth tracks combined with organic touches, sometimes reminiscent of John Foxx-era Ultravox. Either way, a true gem. Kurt Laporte, credited as a songwriter on this release, went on to form a group called Vis-A-Vis with Rude Van Steeners. He then dropped out of the music scene.
