White Russia - Valentine 7" (1980, Trivia Records)

Rare UK minimal synth gem... not to be confused with the German band with the same name from the same era.

Sample both tracks here:

  1. Thanks for posting both tracks but there's an indie new wave-punk label interested in re-releasing the 45 in the near future.

    All the best,

  2. Ok, no problem... I removed the download link. Can you please provide more information (what label, estimated release date, etc.)?


  3. Hi there, I just did a search for this record and it brought me here. I remember this band well. One of them was in my class at school (in Grimsby, North Lincolnshire). His name was Michael Clift. The band was a three piece with a red-headed girl and another guy who I don't remember very well. I saw them play locally a few times and I ended up recording a single out of Cargo Studios a year or so later. (Both inspired by the Gang Of Four/Joy Division connection I suspect!).

  4. any shot of a re-up? both my hard drives crashed..and carbonite is a let down!

    maybe 70% of my music.. they restored.

    I lovooooooove this. found it first off this blog. this killer blog.

    cheers from NYC.
