Limited 180 gram white vinyl LP pressing. 2014 debut full-length release by Le Cliche. CONSUMER BEHAVIOR consists of 11 songs influenced largely by European synth pop of the late 1970's and early 1980's (The Human League, John Foxx, OMD, early Depeche Mode, Japan, Gary Numan, Propaganda and Kraftwerk.). More recent influences include the first album by Miss Kitten & The Hacker, Tiga, Benny Benassi, Erlend O ye and Ladytron. The music might be best described as minimal synthesizer, synth pop, postmodernist, cold assembly line with neo consumerist themes, based on the use of synthesizer sequences and virtual voices. Le Cliche is the synthesizer project of Gerard Ryan, native of Limerick (Ireland), Associate Professor of marketing and consumer behavior at the Rovira I Virgili University in Spain. Le Cliche was initially established in 1984 when Ryan was a teenager, but later the project was put on hiatus in favor of a career in academia. Le Cliche was re-ignited in 2012, motivated by the appearance of new music from the 1980s that was being rediscovered and released by a host of relatively small but hugely motivated new record labels including Medical Records, and the like. The Le Cliche sound is attained by combining a mix of old and new technologies. In this sense, both analogue and virtual instruments are employed thus obtaining a unique mix of old and new technologies.
