Our collaboration with Dutch label Top Tape, originally founded in the mid-80s by Menko Konings and recently reborn, allowed us to reissue the mythical S.M Nurse album-cassette. Today, we announce their first vinyl release: Boyz In Parx “Passion”, a selection of lovely never-released tracks by this mysterious Amsterdam act, active from 1983 to 1993, with the line-up of Peter van Garderen, founder of the legendary Nine Circles, and Robby Horsfall (†2013), also known from No Honey From These e.g
All the tracks on the album are unreleased synth-based songs and have never been heard before. Each of them is a gem! They are all home-made demo tape recordings (sound on sound on two tape decks) made in the Eighties.
Liner notes by Peter van Garderen:
“Our intense friendship and musical collaboration lasted from approximately 1983 to somewhere in 1993. Robby also has had a musical collaboration with Menko Konings in the band ‘No Honey From These’ and has played in ‘Plastic Cocon’. In 1980 I founded the band ‘Nine Circles’ with Lidia ‘The Rose’ which lasted up to and including 1983. In ten years time Robby and I have made about thirty songs that have never been released. On this first album I have digitized ten songs covering a wide scope of our repertoire from the original cassettes. Each recording was played live at my home studio in the Vondelpark in Amsterdam.”
Edition of 500 copies including insert.
