So, here we are. And here are the youg men from the 80’s. I came on the idea to share some records from this period (1980-1990). At this time i was a lot involved in purchasing wave’s & indie records. As teenager i was convainced by bands like Cure, Joy Division, Bauhaus … Everything what was on 4AD or Factory … No cd’s avalaible during this decade, just a few at the end of the 80’s with bonus tracks that not appears on vinyl issues … Just to « promote » this new « media ». So, i’ve decided to reactivate the original Sounds Of Champaign blogspot’s and to change it to Wave’s Of Champaign cause the new musical way & direction that i’ll be delivered here. I’ll try to share rare & collectable vinyls from that period, sometimes very expensive to buy today. Maybe cd’s sometimes, when not easy avalaible … I just want « promote » records from the 80’s, as i was a teenager, also to say that the 80’s were not only a bad musical decade as many people thought !
Presage(s) is the first « compilation » recorded by 4AD in 1980, a 12 inch featuring the few bands hosted by the label. As i was ripping this, i listened to Modern English’s « home » title (the best track on this comp in my opinion) and thought : oh ! it’s an other version, so slow ! ! but i played the vinyl since Side One at 33rpm, and haven’t realize that usually it runs at 45rpm ! ! …So, a bizarre mix of punk, rock, noises and «valuables » voices ! Not the best from 4AD, but an undubitous curiosity , just for the anecdote …
