Description

Minimal Compact - Deadly Weapons

Fronted by vocalist Samy Birnbach (aka DJ Morpheus, freestyle DJ extraordinaire and compiler of the Freezone series), Minimal Compact were one of the most inspirational bands of the ‘80s. They blended funky rock rhythms and incisive guitars with flavours from their native Middle East. They had a large and fanatic following all across Europe and the USA, where some of their tracks became underground club favourites. Originally released in 1984, “Deadly Weapons” was their breakthrough album, and contained their club hit ‘Next One Is Real’.

Reviews

“Post Joy Division, I can only think of three rock bands who’ve successfully penetrated the shadows of existence in their individual ways: Nick Cave, Holy Toy and Minimal Compact “ (Sounds, ‘84)

“Samy Birnbach’s voice rises above the synthetic mist like laughter on the edge of morbidity, taking souls away on a journey to the confines of Europe and Asia. Oum Kaltsoum and Ian Curtis must have had intercourse to produce such an unclassifiable offspring” (Best, France, ‘86)

“A powerful brew of oriental sensuality, white urban funk and revitalised post-Joy Division atmospheres. Between groove of the desert and mist on the canals.” (Rock & Folk, France, ‘83)
