Formed in Amsterdam in 1980, Minimal Compact were part of the original post-punk explosion – and remain one of its most distinctive voices. The band developed a unique mix of propulsive rhythms, spacious bass lines, rich keyboard textures, mesmeric guitar lines, and vocal melodies with a Middle-Eastern inflection. They sounded like nothing that had gone before.
Well-known releases include the album ‘Deadly Weapons’ (with club-hit ‘Next One Is Real’) and ‘Raging Souls’.
Minimal Compact have now reconvened, together with producer and long-time collaborator Colin Newman (of post-punk legends Wire), who will also perform with the band live in May 2020, to record part of their material in the best possible way, with a brand-new song as a bonus.
New album “Creation is Perfect” out now! (MC-Konkurrent).
