Reissued 2013, originally released 1985

Limited colored vinyl LP-only release of this singles collection by the British Electronic band. Play was made up of Wayne Kennedy and David Rome. PLAY released three singles between 1982-1984, and a compilation LP Red Movies in 1985 (which compiled a majority of the singles but not all). This reissue of Red Movies is complete with two extra tracks not featured on the 1985 compilation LP including three remixes. PLAY can be best described as perfect moody synth pop. The songs exude excellent synthesizer work by both members as well as the sprinkled in jagged/angular guitar work by David Rome (so well illustrated on the Drinking Electricity output) reminiscent of UK post-punk. The songs also tend to lean towards new romantic at times but are more sparse yet dynamic.
