***Medical Records in collaboration with our friends at Crispy Nuggets blog are happy to reissue a very obscure Australian gem from the 1980s. IRONING MUSIC were a three piece band from Brisbane. They originally formed in 1984 as a result of their collective love for New Order, Human League and eventually Jean Michel Jarre and Cabaret Voltaire. Comprised of bass and electic guitar, Yamaha DX-7, melodica and an 808, they recorded a 12” EP as their sole output in 1985 in a limited run of 250 copies (obviously excruciatingly rare now!). It was recorded in their bedroom studio with a Teac 4 track. The video clip for the “hit” "Shopping Bag Women" was played on several national and local television music shows. They also recorded demos in hopes of landing a LP deal which unfortunately didn’t attract any takers at the time. They actually only played 3 gigs and were forced to disband after one of their members fell ill in 1986. The LP presented here included the original 4 track single as well as hand picked demos which nicely congeal to form a well rounded LP documenting the band’s brief existence. They can best be described as lo-fi synth pop with an emphasis on excellent pop songs and interesting synth/instrument arrangements. The first track "Shopping Bag Women" is infectiously catchy and just screams to be worn out in the club. Fans of early to mid '80s synth pop and new romantic will fall in love. The tracks have been lovingly remastered by MARTIN BOWES at the Cage, London. Features original reproduction of the front cover painting. Presented in a limited edition of 300 copies on 180-gram vinyl.
