LP / Onderstroom Records / 2012
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
Lex Grauwen was also in, and produced Frozen Ducks and Cheiron.
Lex Grauwen - instruments, vocals and production
Paul Oosterbaan - instruments and vocals.
