VARIOUS ARTISTS BOB STANLEY & PETE WIGGS PRESENT THE TEARS OF TECHNOLOGY Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:

At the turn of the 80s, a new generation of musicians appeared who saw synthesisers not as dehumanizing machines but as musical instruments that could be coaxed into creating modern, beautiful and decidedly emotional music. It was almost as if the musicians were intentionally creating this music to prove the doubters wrong. “The Tears Of Technology” celebrates an era of electronic melancholia, synthesized intimacies and insights – even Tomorrow’s World didn’t see that coming.
