Take Suicide
·$ 14.00
One of the holy grail of the minimal synth and one of the most obscure musical projects ever produced in Italy is finally reissued on Mannequin Records.

Originally released in 1981 by Broadbean Records, a sub-label of LM Records, Flo & Andrew only release ‘Take Suicide’ was home-recorded and home-mixed by the duo in Bologna, using early drum machines like the Boss Dr-55 and the Korg Kr-55, analog synthesizers, guitar, saxophone, tape loops. Flo & Andrew music is truly unique and exemplifies the fact that limitation can be the perfect source for creativity. The title-track and ’To Committ Suicide’ travel through contort and nervous synth sounds and loops, taking somehow inspiration from the No Wave heroes, while ‘Japanese Girls’ is nothing less than a beautiful minimal electronics track in the mythology of the futuristic rise of Japanese country.

Recently (re)discovered, ‘Take Suicide’ is a milestone of the European minimal synth singles and is not really a coincidence that a young generations of producers take it as inspiration (you can see ‘Take Suicide’ floating in the tracklist of artists as Helena Hauff and NGLY). Another must have in your collection / record bag!
