Limited 180 gram colored vinyl LP pressing. Digitally remastered from cassette from the artist's archive by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK. Medical Records in collaboration with Crispy Nuggets returns to Italy for its 59th release. Hailing from Bologna, Italy in the late ‘80s, Effetto Joule were brothers Flavio and Valero Biagi, Massimo Chericoni and Valerio Tassinari. Drawing on influences of the early ‘80s new wave and synth pop scene and armed with an arsenal of synthesizers (Korg Poly-800, Roland alpha juno-1 and juno-2, etc) from the mid ‘80s, Effetto Joule crafted their own sound. With the exception of the few of the tracks, almost all were home recorded during the years of 1988-1990. Effetto Joule self-released a couple of cassettes entitled Ultraviolet A and B as well as one 12" single in 1989 on Top Sound Record. The rest of their music has been unreleased demos from which the tracks were hand selected. The tunes can best be described as densely new romantic with unquestionably catchy hooks and lovely vocals to boot. Standout tracks include ‘Active Ray’ and ‘Stars Your Memory’. Fans of Visage, early Depeche Mode, and Dare-era Human League will need this slab of wax in their collections to cherish.
