VARIOUS ARTISTS: Nuit Blanche LP + ASHES: Saturn is Black 7"
I suppose that most people are familiar with this excellent compilation, Nuit Blanche. The LP features groups likie Diseno Corbusier (whose debut EP Perfido Encanto I shared last year)., Design (who also had a track on the Topless Game comp and a 7" on Anna Logue Records... the track here has yet to be reissued), The Ashes (who also had a 7" on KPs Records, the label that released Topless Game and Nuit Blanche), and unknown bands like the excellent Paris-Brule-T-Il?. This is a highly sought-after and very recommended LP with loads of killer songs. Most of the songs are in the synthpop/minimal wave/post punk vein, although there is a suprisingly pleasant classical guitar instrumental to end the record.
Also shared here is the aforementioned Ashes "Saturn is Black" 7", about which I can find absolutely no mention on the internet. It was released in 1984 on KPs Records... does anybody know if this label released anything else?

Hello, thanks a lot for posting the Nuit Blanche Comp, it is excellent, especially Design and The Ashes, much appreciated,
Thanks alot for these! I think there were only 3 releases on KP's Records. Well I could only track these while searching the net.
For my part every person ought to go through it.
This cannot work in fact, that is what I consider.
