By Strange Passion
STRANGE PASSION IRISH POST PUNK COMPILATION LAUNCH & LISTENING PARTY
Finders Keepers Records/B-Music are proud to present this first ever compendium of Irish post punk and new wave, featuring extensive liner notes and rare photos with the full participation of featured artists and bands including The Virgin Prunes, Major Thinkers, Dogmatic Element, SM Corporation, The Threat, Chant! Chant! Chant! and Operating Theatre.
Focusing on a three year period from 1980 to 1983, Strange Passion, due July 16 on Finders Keepers Records, is a fascinating compilation of rare, unheralded and unreleased music that emerged in Ireland following the first wave of punk and new wave bands.
Culled together from limited privately pressed vinyl and homemade cassettes by resident B-Music Dublin DJ Darren McCreesh, the album compiles 14 rare and seldom-travelled Irish post-punk, DIY and electronic oddities.
Join us and a host of DJ’s for this very special launch event and listening party, a celebration of post punk and electronic music.
