Violence Conjugale - s/t lp (Born Bad Records)


" This is the debut release on Born Bad Records from Belgian synth wave act Violence Conjugale. Hans and André met early in highschool. Their mutual love for Bowie and Kenneth Anger
pushed them to flunk school and smoke in their tiny school movie room.
There they dream of an ideal future, made of space travel and industrial
music. Feeling the pressure from this private institution, they
eventually decide to go to Berlin and see what taste has decadence
there. They meet Marianne Katza, an eccentric woman who tells them to come to an artist squat in the Mitte district. Just like Warhol's
Factory, the place is an indistinct magma of ideas, music and drugs.
Here, as André begins to fiddle with a Korg MS20 synth and dreams of
exquisite performances, in another room, Hans tries to write his wildest
nightmares to exorcise them. Marianne decides to introduce the future
band to one of her lovers: Marc Berron, a young, arrogant and
rich kid blessed with a perfect ear. He helps them to slow down their
drug issues and take a new direction: to play a cold and personal music
in pop format but with a feeling of urgency which characterized young
Berliners. So, he kidnaps them in his own studio for several weeks to
experiment, eventually finding Violence Conjugale's definitive sound:
'80s minimal synth-wave -- the frostiest ever." - BORN BAD
