Minimal Wave proudly presents a full length LP by Ruins, an Italian electro-wave duo. Ruins formed in Mestre in 1978 with the intention of experimenting with electronic devices and mixed media. They mainly created music out of self-expression without any intention of joining the mainstream. Interested in multimedia, they had a strong visual aesthetic apparent via their album art, videos and projections. Their classic hit Fire is one of our favorites to date, so powerful with its great energy and beautiful production (I dont like your job / I dont like your games / I dont wanna be just a sleep-machine). Its where Italo meets Minimal Wave. The Fire videos are a must-see in order to grasp the full effect of the song, check out the first version here and rare second version here. The LP entitled The Art Dance" features a collection of songs recorded between 1980-1984, some previously released, others never released before pressed on 180 gram vinyl and housed in a lovely hand-numbered glossy gatefold jacket lined with the bands history and photos, and accompanied by a lyrics insert sheet." - Minimal Wave.
