Silicon Teens - Music For Parties Music For Parties
Pop Used - LP SRK 6092 Mute
1980 Vinyl Rarity Still In Shrink Wrap. Saw Cut. “Who Would Have Thought That The Same Gent Responsible For The Normal's "Warm Leatherette" -- The Classic, Whip-Cracking Electronic Ode To J.G. Ballard's Auto-Erotic Novel Crash -- Would Follow It Up Several Months Later With A Small Clutch Of Singles Covering '50s And '60s Rock Classics? And Who Would Have Thought That It Would Lead To A Full LP? Inspection Of The Artwork Fools You Into Thinking That The Silicon Teens Are A Quartet Of Darryl, Jacki, Paul, And Diane. Though It Sounds Like A Group Of Enthusiastic Youngsters Bent On Giving Straight-Faced, Faithful Synthpop Renditions Of Tunes Like "Memphis, Tennessee" And "You've Really Got Me," The Concept Of The Group Is Illusory. There's Actually One Silicon Teen -- Mute Honcho Daniel Miller. Music For Parties Is An Undeniably Fun Record In Its Complete Lack Of Irony And Shameless Giddiness. The Covers Aren't Jokes; It Sounds Like A Group Of Kids Having A Blast With Classic Rock & Roll. It's Well Produced, Well Played, And Well Intentioned -- No Winkie Winkie Here, À La Moog Cookbook. There's A Handful Of Originals As Well; "T.V. Playtime" Is Sinister, Sounding Like A Commercial For A Board Game; "Sun Flight" Is Hallucinatory With Darryl Sounding Like A Cross Between Gizmo And Darth Vader. The Sound Is Dated After All, But With The Mid- To Late-'90s Resurgence Of The '80s Synth Sound, One Could Definitely Think It To Be A Product Of Modern Times. Acts Like The Rentals And The Pulsars (Who Even Devoted A Song To The Silicon Teens) Certainly Took A Cue From This. There's More Life In This Record Than Plenty Of Guitar-Based Efforts Of The Era.” - Andy Kellman, AMG... more details

Four Months After The Release Of Music For Parties, Miller/Darryl Signed A Group Of Waif-Ish Youths By The Name Of Depeche Mode.” - Andy Kellman, AMG... more details
