ABOUT
PPMockUp4site.jpg

John Edwards and Richard van Kruysdijk's high-energy songs are constructed from fragments of post-punk and new wave. They use vintage synths, guitars and equipment to create an authentic early 80s sound, inspired by the works of Ultravox, New Order, The Sound, Magazine and the Sisters of Mercy. 

 

As musicians and producers, they have worked on projects for independent and major labels and toured extensively.

Their previous collaborations include members of Wire, Bauhaus, Tuxedomoon, Christian Death, The Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Clan of Xymox and Swans.

While their first album 'No Signal' (Dark Vinyl Records) received praise from international press, their second album 'Pressure Points' (LP/CD/Digi) is even received more enthousiastically. It is released by Cold Transmission Music, and produced by John Fryer (Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails, This Mortal Coil).
