ABSOLUTE BODY CONTROL was Dirk Ivens (aka The Klinik, Absolute Controlled Clinical Maniacs, Dive, Blok 57, Sonar) and Eric van Wonterghem (Insekt, Sonar) from Belgium, and probably one of the godfathers of minimal electronic pop. In recent years they have seen an immense renewed interest in their works, so many releases both re-issues and new material have been made available on various labels including Vinyl-on-Demand (VOD). This LP is the second edition re-issue of their first cassette, originally released in 1981 on Body Records (Body Tapes 001) which featured nine tracks full of Korg KR-55 (and Boss DR-55 on “Touch your Skin”) action, most simple synth bass lines and harmonies and sweet little melodies, sometimes broken down to the very minimum (“Do you feel it inside”). The VOD vinyl includes three bonus tracks (“Intro”, “A better Way”, “Turning around”), recorded live 22/1/83. “Baby’s on Fire” is a cover version of a Brian Eno track. Pure cult, what else?!
