Two - 2 X 2 12"


Two were formed in 1981 and were from West Drayton, a small town near London. They were a male/female duo although a third member played sax on this one.
Their first release is the 'Trace Of Red/Regime' 7" on Future Records. Then came the 'Waiting For Winter' 12" and the 'Dreaming Spires' LP, also on Future Records.
The '2 X 2' 12" is the band's last release, and this one was issued on Reflex Records (And Also The Trees label).
This 12" sounds more experimental than the more synthpop oriented 7". It's mostly an instrumental affair.
Never heard the other 12" and LP. All their records are quite hard to find nowadays.
Capa Nostra Syndicate posted the 7".
Tracks 1 & 2 ripped as one track. Track 4 has a news clip in Dutch dealing with a terrorist attack.

Worth mention is Two's appearance on Future records compilation "Invisible frame"

You're right Marx. It's a song off their 7". Reminds me that I would like to hear that Ice The Falling Rain 7".

Allthough Ice the falling rain's 7" is available at enormous price, you can check them out on youtube where someone has put their song. Nice synth pop.
