Item ID: 416452

These recordings pull back a curtain to reveal the mysterious
world of Syntoma and Mexico's early '80s underground. Founded
by Alex Eisenring in 1980, Syntoma made use of synths and drum
machines and was driven by a freedom-seeking DIY ethos, but
informed by a "rock-jazz-prog-experimental" background. These
'70s influences throw crazed funhouse mirror reflections onto
later Kraftwerk, UK synth-pop, post-punk and pure pop forms.
Primarily a trio during the period of these recordings,
1981-'84, Syntoma transcended the era and stood apart from
their peers with a surprising melodic sense, harmonic adventurousness, interesting arrangements and, above all, an
atmosphere of freshness and enthusiasm..

Also available: SYNTOMA (CD).
