K.I.E.M. is an abbreviation of "Klank Improvisatie Elektronische Muziek" (Sound Improvisation Electronic Music). Formed in 1982 in Rotterdam (always a great place for interesting rhythms)from oil drums, chains metal bins, anvils, anchors and other scraps from a wrecked tow-boat..

Kiem's sound is like a intelligent New Wave version of Test Dept, with some goofy humor thrown in the mix.

I remember getting this and a good chunk of my collection at Slipped Disc Records of Valley Stream NY, a great Metal store with a well curated New Wave section..

Francis Rimbert

This french born synthesieur pumps out some dreamy kitchy disco jams that will delight most synth fans.

In collaboration with Korg, they created a new concept which had not existed ever before: Francis took the stage (Theatre des Champs Elysées – Paris) solo, surrounded by all his synthesizers (Bionic Orchestra, 1979). He will be the go-to man for both Roland and Ensoniq trades.

Francis wasted little time getting to meet another master of the synthesizer: Jean Michel Jarre, through their mutual friend Michel Geiss. Meeting in 1979 for the concert in Place de La Concorde, Paris, they began a long collaboration. Since the 1986 Rendez-vous Houston concert, Francis has been at Jarre’s side on grand stages.

W.A.T. (World According To)

I just recently scored this rare gem at A1 (439 E 6th St, New York, NY 10009)

I can't really find too much info on them except that they are a Dutch trio, and this is their first release. I love to hear some of their other stuff..

Great Synthy Wave with some sweet female vocals.
