Includes 36-page booklet reprint of the second issue of the Purple Twilight fanzine from 1985. 

Blinding 3rd volume of wave obscurities sourced from hard or impossible-to-find tapes originally issued in the early-mid ‘80s! Color Tapes again reveal a hitherto unheard slice of British garage cold wave recordings ranging from certifiable dancefloor aces to synth escape pods and integers between.

We’re spoiled for highlights, taking in Duke Of Disrespect’s taut, jabbing electro stunner You Tell Lies (Banging Away) alongside the Hypnobeat-style drive of Disintegrators’ Oscillations and the cold, emotional pull of Silicon Valley’s abstract instrumental Holborn Station 3 am 3rd January 1982 on the front, whilst the other sparks up killer dancefloor material in the razor sharp 808s and synth voices of Club Paris by Beserk In A Hayfield (big stars of the first 2 volumes), and the roiling analogue psychedelia of Stereo Machines & Kinesis.No mistake; this is bona fide essential business for fans of early wave music
