Boomkat Product Review:
Reissue of some lost Belgian classics from Autumn - the earliest incarnation of Linear Movement's Peter Bonne and Peter Koutstaal. Formed in 1980, the group amassed an impressive arsenal of synths, sequencers and machines and became well known on the Belgian live circuit with an extravagant audio-visual performance. The nine tracks of 'Synthesize' essentially form a 'best of', culling cuts from their early cassettes and both the title track and 'Third Autumn' from their only vinyl, 'Synthesize' which was a minor Belgian hit in the summer of '82. This one is pretty unmissable for the brightly pulsing 'Third Autumn', the heroically ascending melodic sequence of 'Viginigaire' and the darkly evocative, echoic pop of 'Not Afraid To Die'. TIP!
