FURTHER STRATEGIES (WHITE 2LP)
coloured 2x12" Vinyl D
A collection of tracks from 80s UK electronic duo Turquoise Days on white double vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve.
Minimal Wave proudly presents a full-length double album entitled “Further Strategies” by synthpop band Turquoise Days. Hailing from Jersey, Channel Islands, Turquoise Days was formed in 1981 by Luciano Brambilla and David Le Breton shortly after meeting at a nightclub in St Ouens called Waves. They used Roland synthesizers and drum machines, as well as Yamaha synthesizers and Fender guitars along with tape effects and vocals. Throughout the 1980s, they self-released many cassettes, and the renowned masterpiece Grey Skies / Blurred 7” single. They were selected for the Radio Luxembourg song contest in 1985 and received press for their releases and appearance there. Their music can be described as a melodic, emotive new wave. The music featured here includes the songs from the long sold-out Alternative Strategies release from 2009, remastered, along with a collection of previously unreleased material.
