What can we say? There are some bands that are there at the very beginning, storming the forefront, and then there’s bands that come a few years later that completely perfect a sound that had yet to be articulated in such a precise way. Asylum Party is the latter. Zero bad releases, everything is solid, and everything they released has a place in cold-wave/new wave history, with a distinct print on the sub genre of “touching pop”. Excellent band, simple yet profound. Greedy to say but I only wish they could’ve done one more big release. Decades later members as solo artists would release good music not so different from Asylum Party, but it only makes you wonder what could’ve been. Still, it wouldn’t be until over 20 years after they broke up that as a band they started to get the international recognition they always deserved. And though some of us held our breath for perhaps a reuniting of the group, after singer/bassist Thierry’s tragic passing in 2019, you had to put all dreams to rest, and accept what once has passed will likely never come to fruition again. Luckily we have some treasures to remind us of a time in history when something existed that created such a profound impact, especially on some of us, even if under appreciated in its time. C’est la vie. So it goes. This review is dedicated to anyone ever apart of the band, and anyone who’s ever enjoyed their music. Rest In Peace Thierry, and long live the music of Asylum Party. Cheers.
