Boomkat Product Review:
**5LP boxset with 32-page colour book of interviews, liner notes and photos plus hand-numbered certificate. Edition of 500** One of Canada's finest synth-pop exports take their turn under Vinyl On Demand's spotlight. 'Cold War Night Life' covers their relatively small but much-loved output for Montreal's Yul records - including their debut album 'Cold War Night Life' plus demos, obscure and rare releases 1981-1983 - alongside their slightly later releases for Capitol Records - including alternate and unreleased mixes - complemented by a live recording made in Winnipeg 1983. Together they document the genesis and evolution of one of Canada's premier synth-pop groups, comprising Tracy Howe (The Normals, Men Without Hats, Heaven Seventeen) and Bill Vorn (U, Sacred Noise). Taking heavy inspiration from Kraftwerk the duo catalysed a dramatic, driving, and topical sound yielding scene anthems such as 'Saturdays In Silesia' and 'Dancing OnThe Berlin Wall' - replete with ace Illegal Rams Horn Remix - that would set the ground for later, and arguably better known Canadian groups such as Psyche whilst paralleling the music coming out of Europe at the same time.
