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..
Kiem - Keam Lp - 1985 - Netherlands
