VA: Pulsebeat LP (1984, Creeping Bathroom Records)



Another rarely known compilation from the UK featuring a ton of obscure bands ranging from post-punk, goth, synth, new wave, indie...and naturally a couple pop/rock stinkers. My favorite track is by Bzu-zu (great post-punk tune with some synth), who existed previously under the names His Create He ("Sing As We Go" compilation LP) and Blood Fetish ("Not Waving But Drowning" compilation LP) - with some line-up changes. Dark Asylum are GOTH reminding me if an early Pete Burns fronted a band such as I'm Dead. The Papers have a decent, but quiet minimal electro track. Please Return My Dog combines punk, post-punk, and synth - they also put out a 7" that I've yet to hear. Noize Wot Noize are light-hearted synth-punk/new wave. Dance On Water have a catchy dark pop, new wave sound. Of the few remaining bands... material ranges from indie/wave to pop/rock.
