I highly recommend everyone with a weak spot for cold wave, new wave and general awesomeness to check out Wierd Records. My new friend Marc, with whom I share a childish excitement about everything synth, took me to Home Sweet Home a few weeks ago where Wierd were strutting their stuff including Frank (just Frank) performing live. The room is just as cold as the music and the sound level keeps your ears on the brink of eardrum hara-kiri. You know you like it.
It turns out that Led er Est that I have been a fan of for years are on Wierd Records – there you go. And check out Xeno and Oaklander as well. Bonus info: Lis from the band is part Norwegian. Vikings 4 ever.
