Ruth Polaroid/Roman/Photo 30th Anniversary Edition Limited Gatefold Clear transparent Vinyl LP

· Following on from the long since sold out 2010 release of Ruth’s cult 1985 album ‘Polaroïd/Roman/Photo’ Angular Recording Co are very pleased to announce the release of a 30th Anniversary deluxe special edition reissue.
· The record - pressed on transparent clear vinyl - is packaged in a gatefold sleeve and features a 12 page booklet of lyrics and
· The release also includes codes for a digital download version
of the album which includes six digital-only bonus tracks.
· Ruth’s ‘Polaroïd/Roman/Photo’ track was featured on Angular’s
‘Coldwaves And Minimal Electronics Vol.1’ compilation which
received glowing reviews across the board on release from
Pitchfork (8.2), NME (8/10) and Vice (9/10), among others.
· Originally released on Paris Records in 1985, Ruth’s LP sold just
50 copies and was relegated to obscurity until the track
‘Polaroïd/Roman/Photo’ started appearing on bootlegs and
compilations in the early 2000s, slowly becoming the cult synth
pop classic it is today. An original copy goes for upwards of
£300 on eBay and Ruth are a shining light from an oft forgotten
music scene that is becoming increasingly influential today. You
can hear it in the current Parisian sounds of Ed Banger Records
and Mark Ronson cites it as “one of my favourite songs ever.”
· Ruth was the brainchild of Thierry Müller, a photographer and
graphic artist from Paris who drew his inspiration from bands
and artists like Brian Eno, Stockhausen, Pere Ubu, Neu, Velvet
Underground and Kraftwerk. In the late 70s he began to work
on Ruth, releasing the lone album ‘Polaroïd/Roman/Photo’ in
1985. The line up of Ruth was collaborative and fluid, brass
mingles with prototype drum machines, and squalling
experimentation sits alongside sultry French girls across 40
minutes of edgy pop innovation that sounds remarkably
undated alongside contemporary pop music.
