Coming to Peripheral Minimal is a classic of the synth-pop scene (at the time received criticism for alleged lack of emotion and musicianship), that exploded into the glare of the music press and into the bedrooms of thousands of trendy teenagers in the UK at the tail end of the 1970s and early 1980s. A time when technology was rapidly becoming affordable for the plethora of part-time synth addicts and electronic experimenters. V-Sor,X (pronounced VEE-SORE-EX), originate from the midlands town of Lichfield (known as, rather disturbingly, 'field of the dead', in Latin!), an important (historically speaking) but unremarkable place. Founded in 1979 as a vehicle for Morgan Bryan, who influenced by the post-punk protagonists and the new-wave of electronic musicians, formed a band. Here we present the first single by, 'V-Sor,X' entitled, 'Authors 2', originally released in 1982 on DOX Music, in a very limited edition of 300. The single commands prices of almost £100 on Discogs, and is a highly collectable artifact of an era of experimentation that perhaps no longer exists in today's world of instantaneous downloads and ridiculously expensive LP re-issues in almost (it seems) unlimited quantities.
