Release date: 08/12/2008
An enhanced 2xCD anthology from Belgian synthpop duo Kid Montana, who recorded a string of acclaimed releases for Les Disques du Crépuscule between 1984 and 1987.
Kid Montana was initially the nom de guerre of Jean-Marc Lederman, formerly keyboard player with Digital Dance and Fad Gadget. After an experimental EP on Sandwich Records in 1982, Lederman spent time in London playing with The The and Gene Loves Jezebel, before recruiting American-born singer Dudley Kludt for the second Kid Montana EP, Revisiting Yalta, in 1984. The following year the duo signed with Crépuscule, going on release a run of sophisticated electro-pop records.
Temperamental + Singles combines the Temperamental album from 1986 with mini-album The Las Vegas Gold Rush as well as singles Revisiting Yalta, Spooky, Love May Be Blind and Still Colour Waiting. Featured producers include Marc Moulin and Dan Lacksman (of Telex) and Gilbert Lederman (Berntholer).
Digitally remastered, the 2 hour compilation also includes all tracks from rare debut EP Statistics Mean Nothing When You Get On The Wrong Plane from 1982, and three tracks from a final unreleased demo recorded in 1987. The CD further includes MPEG versions of the video clips for Still Color Waiting and Spooky, directed by Serge Bergli.
