GARY ALLEN – In White America EP (1982)
Here we have a funky electro synth platter with some minimalism peppered throughout. Although Mutant Sounds has it posted, it was over 3 years ago!…This one needs another introduction, it’s that good….Mr. Allen’s creativity is beyond reproach with all four songs being refreshingly different in stylistic behaviors...Check out "Itchy-Itchy Boy" with its razor sharp synth stabs and saxophone placements. Then there is the infectious tribal dance beats of "Oops! It's An Accident”… “What's So Atomic" has a strategically placed female backing vocal and more danceable beats...You will find yourself toe tapping on this obscure extended player...A private American pressing via 19 Ninety 9 records...Here's a video as well..
