X RAY POP are the synth-pop duo of Doc Pilot and Zouka Dzaza from Tours,
France. They got their start in the no wave art group Bocal 5 in 1981
and split off in 1984 to focus on their own brand of quirky synthesized
electronics. Influenced by Erik Satie, Brigitte Bardot, Suicide and
Young Marble Giants, they call their music “minimum naive new wave.”
Armed with a Casio PT-20 keyboard and a rudimentary Yamaha MR10 drum
machine they recorded their demo cassette and first 7″ “Eurasienne”/ “La
Machine à Rêver” in 1984. Upgrading their synthesizers and adding some
saxophone and guitar, they recorded the “Alcool”/ “Amazone” 7″ in 1985
and the “DS”/” El Gato” 7″ in 1986.
“The Dream Machine” collects X RAY POP’s first three 7″ singles plus 8
songs from their demo cassette, never released on vinyl before. Their
songs are short, concise and well structured; richly textured, moving at
a quick speed with hardly a pause. The demos show a sense of humor,
vitality and carefree playfulness. Zouka’s pouting, tongue-in-cheek
vocals (sung in French) come together for a catchy, sensuous, danceable,
eccentric psychedelic ride. Reminiscent of the Mo-dettes, early OMD or
Algebra Suicide, X RAY POP could be the missing link to Stereolab.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy
Studios in Berkeley directly from the original master tapes. Each LP
comes in a neon yellow jacket with an 8 page booklet full of unreleased
photos, original artwork and lyrics. 28 years later, this is the first
time since the original issue that the songs of X RAY POP are
reappearing on vinyl again, but is the world ready?
