50 synthesizer greats (synthesizer music)
by David Chesworth (1979)
Nobody had ever made a record like this before. Totally devoid of the slickness of, say, Kraftwerk, the album nonetheless had a K-Tel-like sense of kitsch to it that undermined any saccharine sweetness, giving the 37 trax an atmosphere of disquiet that still catches in the ear. This was (and remains) no mere muzak for moderns but something altogether more insidious, and haunting, and is an indication of the vibrancy of post-punk electronic music in Melbourne that the world might only now be catching up with.
