Classé X - Classé X (1984)

Classé X were "typical happy" coldwave band from Toulouse (I think the reason is in their early years, when they were associated with the city punk scene).
Personally I note that B-side (4-7) is more driven than poppy and "minstreled" A-side (1-3).
Band's myspace.

01) Federico Fellini
02) Four Hours To Die
03) Myself In The Mirror
04) Dancing With The Ghost
05) In Your Room
06) The Sanctuary
07) The Dead Love Lives

This month's pearl. A find of finds!
Fantastic work which was released by Slim Productions (famous with Excès Nocturne's first vinyl) as a second and last one from Antibiøtik. Maybe you'll find it a little naïve, but the thing would never dissapoint you!
