COMA: S/T 12"
Reissue of this 1979 French cold wave banger, whose singer would go on to be in another seminal French new wave band, Charles de Goal. COMA sound like they were quite inspired by the early minimal synth scene... I'm not sure how connected all of these bands are, but there's quite a similar sound to the Normal, the Screamers, early Tubeway Army and Metal Urbain. There are still guitars here, so it's not as minimal as, say, early Depeche Mode, and the rhythms are generally speedy and agitated... fans of the Normal and the Screamers will definitely dig this hard.
