Minny Pops

The creative anchor to Minny Pops was Wally Van Middendorp, a key figure in Amsterdam's underground Ultra art movement, and founder of the Plurex label in early 1978. His first single, as Tits, coupled "We're Glad Elvis Is Dead" with "Daddy Is My Pusher" (PLUREX 001), and was a fairly typical new wave record, though darkly humorous. In September Minny Pops were formed as a predominantly electronic band, taking their name from a primitive Korg rhythm box named Mini Pops, and having something in common with Suicide, The Normal and Human League.

Jaks

There’s a big difference between nostalgia and education. Jaks was not a band to look back, to be sentimental or bitch about the good ol’ days. Theirs was a sound savage and full of foreboding doom—gothic punk rock, unruly, sharp-toothed. It was heavy and nasty and made you think of bands like The Birthday Party, Nation of Ulysses and Antioch Arrow. So, a collection of their work is education—rather than a tribute. It’s education because all your favorite bands suck dick and you need to know what it was like back when this crazy fucking band stalked the Earth.

Mac DeMarco

Mac DeMarco, formerly Makeout Videotape, is the anti-thesis to your stereotypical singer-songwriter. Disregarding the seriously somber moments, he replaces them with whimsical and youthful spontaneity, whilst retaining the endearing and subtle commentaries that exude his familiarity. Promptly after leaving his Edmonton garage for Vancouver he embarked on a North American tour accompanying fellow Canadians Japandroids on a grand voyage of enlightenment and alcoholic debauchery.
