The (Hypothetical) Prophets Around The World With on LP + Download

A lost new wave classic given the definitive reissue treatment. The (Hypothetical Prophets) were a collaboration between French election pioneer Bernard Szajner and British musician Karel Beer, recording something of a Soviet-themed concept album under the pseudonyms Joseph Weil and Norman D. Landing.

Known to aficionados of new wave and minimal synth/synth wave/cold wave, the album has rarely been heard since its original release on CBS/EPIC. Utilizing William Burroughs/Brion Gysin style newsreel cut-ups, harsh electronics comparable to contemporary records by the likes of Cabaret Voltaire, caustically satirical lyrics, and deadpan vocals reminiscent of the Flying Lizards, B52s or Trio, the Prophets concocted a truly unique sound, in some ways predicting the danceable meta-pop of groups like LCD Soundsystem.

Remastered from the original master tapes with never heard bonus material. LP in gatefold sleeve, includes printed insert and download card.
