Tolerance - Today's Thrill flexi (Vanity Records, 1980)


Side A
Today's Thrill

With this beautiful blue flexi-disc let me welcome you to STALKING DUPPI. I'll be posting a lot of Japanese "Indies" (80's underground) groups, so stay tuned. If you recognize the blog name, you've come to the right place...

For some background on this flexi, I recommend you take a minute to read Dave Knapik's Vanity Records overview at his blog. You'll notice he's linked everything but the flexis... something I hope to change here at SD.

True to the Tolerance m.o. (and that of Vanity Records in general), this is 5 and a half minutes of muted thump, acoustic-or-electronic? rustle, nearly inaudible female vocals, and meandering synthesizer. Enjoy.
