Vertigo: Synth Punk Blasts 1978 - 1984

Ancient Monument

Released: 26th February 2021

LP £25.99 Buy Now In Stock. Dispatched tomorrow.


Vertigo is a compilation of synth punk, mainly from little known bands. This first volume will be available (vinyl only) on December 15th, featuring American, German, British and Swedish punk bands. The term synth punk has been popularized in recent years, or rather vulgarized, becoming a genre that mostly describes electronic or new wave bands. This compilation highlights anger and nihilism punk with the violent rhythm of a fingering that assails a keyboard. Here, no synth pop, no new wave, no experimental music. Imagine a Killed By Death compilation led by raw razor shape synthesizers.
Call it SYNTH PUNK!
