To Heaven a Jet/Revox Cadets split 7"

This week I have three synth-heavy records to share. To get things started, here is a 7" released on Bill Nelson's Cocteau Records. It's a split between two bands, and I believe these may be the only songs they officially released. I know that the To Heaven a Jet song was later rereleased on a Cocteau Records comp, and the Revox Cadets song appears on one of the many New Wave Complex cd-rs. David, the singer/songwriter of To Heaven a Jet, informed me that Revox Cadets was actually just Bill Nelson himself, under a pseudonym. After To Heaven a Jet disbanded, David went on to be in groups like The Rain Poets and Big Man Aviators.
