the republic - volume 1 12" 1985

synth pop/new wave trio from up north comprised of tim dupont on voices and bass, a guy who goes by the name of slider on guitars and backing vocals and john dupont on the bangings with the help of jimmy tanaka and marty simon(keyboards). a 4-song 12" e.p. very well engineered and produced as an indie single released thru backburner records in canada. catchy melodies and mike peters like-voice(i'm not saying the same style of vocals) just voice similarity with keyboards that reminds me of search party's "all around the world", it's a win win for me. but then again that's me.
i think both songs from the a-side are the standout tracks so listen on.
