Glowing in the Dark: Minimal Synth MP3 Series #1 -Cinema 90 repost

As requested, here is a repost of Cinema 90's "In Ultra-Violet" - I should have another minimal synth post in the next day or two. Here is the 7" version.

Cinema 90 (a.k.a. Colin MacDonnel, keyboardist for the Seattle post-punk band 3 Swimmers) had one song on this compliation (Seattle Syndrome 2) released by Engram in 1983, "In Ultra-Violet." It's a haunting synth piece with a driving bass line. While there are some similarities structurally to Frank Tovey's early work (RIP), "In Ultra-Violet" is more melodic and less obscure lyrically. Excellent stuff all around and a very nice rip as well.
