Why don't US Companies who press in europe (here: Holland) put away some copies for sale there? Could save us europeans a lot of custom fees (and postage). instead the records are send back and forth - also not good for the environment.

I am afraid "Cold Wave" is a term "invented" decades after this was released. I would rather use that term for later releases. Thank you

The "melody" could have been borrowed here: Devo - Mongoloid / Jocko Homo. Never thought this could be combined with Nina Simone and her "Rags and Old Iron"
