Much needed re-issue of this fantastic and unfortunately overlooked 1985 tape on Stichting Stopcontact. Lex Grauwen and Paul Oosterbaan had worked together for about eight years before they formed Tranquil Eyes in 1982. They decided to turn their back on stage performances and started experimenting with home-taping. Using an array of electronics, Tranquil Eyes recorded a great amount of songs and made a fine selection on Walks, their first and only release. The wonderfully-produced tracks sound a lot like A Blaze Colour and Snowy Red. Minimal synth at its best with a great feel for song structures, melody and occasionally aiming at the dancefloor. If you're at all attuned to the cassette culture of the early years, don't miss out on this one. Lex Grauwen was also in, and produced Frozen Ducks and Cheiron. Lex Grauwen (instruments, vocals and production); Paul Oosterbaan (instruments and vocals). Includes a booklet with song texts, photos, credits and liner-notes. Remastered by Ruud Braumuller. Artwork re-designed by Pieter Eykens. Pressed on 180 gram vinyl in a limited edition of 500 copies.
