Reminds me of the best of the old 4AD era. Reminds me of early Cocteau Twins/Collection D'Arnell Andrea/Siouxie Sioux and the Banshees. I really wish they put out more music on CD. What a great album. Track 4 is fun pop song with a dark-wave speedway feel.

CITY LIMITS: at the dark end street, unable to choose which way you like best,´First´ marks the electrogoth variation - that part was sensational for they already considered kind of experimentalism on cassete compilations -Behold the cross that City Limits arrived and evolved into Uniglory persisting even the sonic experimentation against the melodic pop.

Lilian Vaz & Paulo Cezar Gabrielleschi develop sound works since 1988, with bands that alternated pop and instrumental [CITY LIMITS-band with diverse styles from expeimental music, rock and electronic pop, duo SICILIAN UNIT and electronic-pop duo UNIGLORY and variants]. Under the name of City Limits, attended the New Music Festival of Santos(Brazil) in 1989. Participated in some compilations on CD, and own a cd of the band that went extinct by Subtronic Records of Dortmund in Germany. Came to be aired video clip of the song 'Evening' in the television station MTV-Brazil. Under the name Uniglory had a few tracks released on the Internet and participation in a collection on CD by the former U.S. record Blacklight. CITY LIMITS´First (Subtronic) is funny because it seems today more a kind of 80´s kraut rock (+darkwave). A pop music at the same time, sad, intimate mode of its time. Pity that many of their songs like "Radar Stirs" and "Love" not were released on cd (only k7!)they should leave a second album that never came to light(Subtronic closed the doors..)....rests only that first light, a flash ... (maybe one day some of these synthpoparchaeologists dig this cd).
