THE MISZ 'THE LONELY CROWD' LP MINIMAL WAVE
Minimal Wave is happy to present an LP of tracks by Belgian synthwave luminaries The Misz, entitled The Lonely Crowd.
The Misz formed in Gent, Belgium in 1983 by Jan Van den Broeke and Dries Dekocker. They captured their sonic experiments and sometimes released them on cassette (It Ain’t all Garbage, 1984 - Eddy Merckz, 1985 - Violence and Love, 1987) in very limited editions of 100-200. They were also included on numerous cassette compilations throughout the 1980s on labels like Mad In Belgium, The Cassette Factory, 3RIO Tapes, Minimart production, Fraction Studio, Cauchy Productions, Home Product, R.R. products, ZNS Tapes, and Body Records. The songs on The Lonely Crowd span from various cassette releases and have been remastered from their original reel to reel tapes. The LP is pressed on 180 gram vinyl as a limited edition of 600 copies, the first 100 are in white and the remaining 500 in black. The cover and inner sleeve are printed on matte heavy card stock featuring photographic collages, typography and design by Peter Miles.
