Tranquil Eyes - Walks LP
Much needed re-issue of this fantastic and unfortunately overlooked 1985 tape on "Stichting Stopcontact".
Lex Grauwen and Paul Oosterbaan had worked together for about 8 years before they formed Tranquil Eyes in 1982. They decided to turn their back to stage performances and started experimenting with home-taping. Using an array of electronics, Tranquil Eyes recorded a great amount of songs and made a fine selection on Walks. Their first and only release.
The wonderful produced tracks sound a lot like A Blaze Colour and Snowy Red. Minimal synth at its best with a great feel for song structures, melody and occasionally aiming at the dancefloor. If you’re at all attuned to the cassette culture of the early years don't miss out on this one.
Lex Grauwen was also in, and produced Frozen Ducks and Cheiron.
