X Ray Pop - The Dream Machine

X Ray Pop are the synth-pop duo of Doc Pilot and Zouka Dzaza from Tours, France. They got their start in the no wave art group Bocal 5 in 1981 and split off in 1984 to focus on their own brand of quirky synthesized electronics. Influenced by Erik Satie, Brigitte Bardot, Suicide and Young Marble Giants, they call their music \''minimum naive new wave\''. Armed with a Casio PT-20 keyboard and a rudimentary Yamaha MR10 drum machine they recorded their demo cassette and first 7\'' Eurasienne and La Machine à Rêver in 1984. Upgrading their synthesizers and adding some saxophone and guitar, they recorded the Alcoo and Amazone 7\'' in 1985 and the DS and El Gato 7\'' in 1986. The Dream Machine collects X Ray Pop's first three 7\'' singles plus 8 songs from their demo cassette, never released on vinyl before.
