Psyche - Insomnia Theatre (+Bonus Tracks) CD

Originally self-released in 1985 as a single LP, Insomnia Theatre was Psyche's first album. Its brilliant style mixed dark electronics, new wave, industrial, and horror in ways that--back thenwere quite shocking to its first Canadian audience, and which today are seen by synth music aficionados as a master work. With classic cuts The Brain Collapses, Maggots, Eating Violins and Children Carry Knives, the album made its way to Europe where it was licensed by the pioneering French New Rose label. It also drew accolades from Melody Maker and NME, both of whom loved the record. Sounds Magazine praised Insomnia for being "dirty in these limpdick times"--which more or less says exactly what anyone could ever want to have said about their debut.
