Product Details

Limited 180gm vinly LP pressing. Medical Records presents a hand-picked selection of the early recordings of Germany's Bal Pare. The band started as Jeanette & das Land Z in 1981. The 7' became an underground hit. Members were Kirsten Klemm (vocals), Jan T. Krahn (Synthesizer) and Matthias Schuster (Synthesizer, Beatbox). The band changed their name to Bal Pare and begin recording independently. In addition, drummer Jurgen Weiss joined the band. The band name was based on the song 'Es war beim Bal Pare' from the German chansonette Hildegard Knef, which was a musical influence beside bands like Kraftwerk, Depeche Mode, Erasure, Yazoo, etc. The first Bal Pare LP was released in 1982 on Konkurrenz Records. Around this time, a new member joined on keyboards and programming and Jan T. Krahn and Jurgen Weiss had left the band. There were many tracks produced during this time that ended up unreleased. Much of the material from this selection of tracks were culled from unreleased sessions from the 80s with Manfred Asmus. This is the first time this collection has been reissued on vinyl. The opening track 'Rien' is a perfect display of what synth pop is modeled after. Rich lead synth textures, male/female interplayed vocals, and electronic percussion. Though the entire record flows with ease and captivates the listener from beginning to end, other standout tracks include 'Palais d'Amour', 'Die Idioten', and 'Meilleur Du Monde'. This collection is absolutely crucial for fans of early new wave such as Deux, Moderne, Performance and other similar acts of the genre.
