This is incredible, wonderful, unbelievable synth-led beauty from Harald Grosskopf's apparently seminal album Synthesist released in 1980, due to get a reissue in the coming weeks. I'm your average idiot and know very little about the Berlin artist, but even a fool like me can appreciate the brilliance of these songs. I quite often find myself amazed by bands from 30, 40 years ago, but this... Just listen.
Harald Grosskopf - So Weit, So Gut
Harald Grosskopf - Synthesist
RVNG Intl. are reissuing the album in just a few days time, along with a remix album Re-Synthesist. And just to think of which bands the 80s are best remembered for.
