Analog Angel

Analog AngelAnalog Angel was born out of the ’80s analogue synthesizer revolution. Four young, impressionable lads from tough housing estates in the post-industrial city of Glasgow, Scotland, decided to start a band under the monicker of Dr. Strangelove – no relation to Doktor Avalanche. Their sound flirted with a number of pioneers of synthesizer music and inspired a large local following and much interest from major labels in London. Unfortunately just as Dr. Strangelove were about to cross the line from local recognition to a greater and wider audience they split up and went their separate ways.

…Until now, that is. In the last few months a grainy video, long lost in time, found its way onto YouTube. Unknown to any of the original members of the group, a friend had uploaded the video for How Do You Do? under the heading of Depeche Mode-esque, thus drawing attention from thousands of people who were requesting the song. With this new found interest Dr. Strangelove were destined to return. Featuring 3 out of 4 original members (John B, Derek, and Ian), the Glaswegians renamed themselves Analogue Angel and started working on new material last December. These first demos were enough to strike a deal with Rage in Eden Records for an album release, probably sometime in June or July. Now that’s some bizarre, isn’t it?
