Share: Paean to Flexipop

In the early aughts, when I was really into Soulseek, I came across a 36 album series called A Tribute to Flexipop apparently compiled by a small record shop in Germany. Below are my personal favorites.

(A few of these tracks have come back in print, with the advent of Dark Entries records and some recent Minimal Wave compilations. I imagine The Girl With the Patent Leather Face must be on one of the early Soft Cell reissues, but haven't checked. There is a great live take of Iron Curtain's The Condos on the album Artifact. The wonderful 'Are Kisses Out of Fashion?' and Fall of Saigon tracks are out on Dark Entries.)
