Kas Product - So Young But So Cold

Further proof that you can learn something new about music from the past everyday. I'd never heard of Kas Product or for that matter the scene it is associated with. My discovery began last week when I was skulking around the always awesome heavenisanincubator and found this:

I really dug Feurerbahn and went back today to buy the album. In looking at the tags on the bandcamp I saw a term I'd never seen before - Cold Wave.


So I googled Cold Wave. Apparently Cold Wave had a little lift off in the late 70's/early 80's and derives its name from a quote by Siouxsie and the Banshees, where they described their music as "cold, machine-like and passionate at the same time".

Next I found this discogs entry which led me to this allmusic entry. From there it wasn't far until I found Kas Product.

Good stuff.
