The Particles - Colour In 7''

Probably more of a pop sound to be heard here. Female vocals with a healthy smattering of trumpet. Reminds me a lot of Pel Mel ('No Word From China') and even the B-52's. The Particles released 3 EP's/Singles - this one came out in 1980.

The two lead players (Peter & Astrid) experimented with drum machines, tape machines, brass instruments and keyboard sounds. There always seemed to be a pop sound to their recordings. Not easy to do.

The Particles - Advanced Colouring 7''

1981 and we cheer that The Particles have released a second single. Almost a rarity. Rocking horse shit. But, it happened.
