John Lacey, Chris & Cosey – European Rendez-Vous (1984)

 

Eye of Sound: Those were the days: when the future wasn’t bright and dystopia was your daily bread; when apocalypse was just now and the winters cold as dead. Flower-power dreams withered, post-industrial gloom remained. Chris & Cosey’s rendez-vous is one with an era, a new stage in the history of gray when synth was to reign supreme paving Europe’s way to a new fantasy: the utopia of electric dreams.
