lou champagne system - No Visible Means

Remastered reissue of a Canadian post-punk classic by one-man synth, guitar and syn-drum band, Lou Champagne System. 'No Visible Means' was privately pressed on Lou's Ontario-based Pterodactyl Records in 1983 and has never been issued since. Over nine tracks he serves an impressively diverse array of post-punk styles, from more jagged guitar-driven wave pop to slicker electronic disco with a slightly daft but endearing darkside lyrical rhetoric. It's the latter styles which make up the highlights, including one in particular 'Propoganda Frustration', a standout piece of arpeggiated disco bass and tortured vox with a shifty patina of dubbed-out guitar primed for the darkest dancefloors. Equally on a dry, motorik minimal tip, there's the excellent 'Silent Walking', while the rest tends towards spikier punk modes, liek the propulsive guitar and rushing machine rhythm vectors of 'Another Dimension' and the snotty fury of 'Do Something'.
