Presented on high-quality 180gram heavyweight half and half yellow and black vinyl. Medical Records is beyond elated to finally present to the world the first official reintroduction and reissue of the iconic IKO "83" LP. This coveted album by minimal synth aficionados around the globe has been out of print and very rare since its original release in 1982. Hailing from Montreal, Canada, IKO has always been shrouded in mystery. All 3 members come from an academic background (electroacoustic composition, etc), and they met at the University of Montreal in the music department. Taking from their collective influences of 60s pop, prog and minimalist composers as well as early industrial, they played in a few early bands before solidifying the all-synth incarnation of IKO in its definitive lineup. The LP was originally released on Manhattan Formula. Other than Rational Youth, the Montreal synth scene was small, and the band broke up not too long after its release. Over the years, it has slowly achieved cult status of the highest order and now fetches inflated collectors prices on the open market. It even prompted an unauthorized bootleg LP a few years ago (of much inferior sound quality).
