V/A The Young And The Free 10"
Don't let the awful cover fool you. It's actually a gimmick scratch'n'sniff sleeve.
This 10" contains 4 rather unknown postpunk/synth bands, each with two tracks.
Vietnamese Rose play postpunk with a 60's psyche feel. They also have a 7" on the same label as this comp.
Experiments With Ice is probably the most wellknown as they released an album on Experimental Records, a side label of United Dairies. One synthpop and one experimental synth track. Mutant Sounds posted the album.
Couldn't find any info on Stranger Comforts. Not that exciting of which one track is a version of the Rolling Stones classic.
Active Restraint is way better. Did find out that both tracks were released on a 7" on Upright Records.
