These two minimal synth-pop gems were first released in 1982 on the compilation 'Walkin' After Midnight'. The tracks are in the same vein as early '80s singles by Carol ('Breakdown') and Rive Gauche ('Friends Are Friends'). Both tracks on the 7-inch (on white vinyl) represent the lively and creative music scene that existed in Brussels during the early '80s. Bernadette was an additional member who took care of the vocals. As the name suggests, the general idea of Occidental White was to do 'pop' songs inspired by occidental white culture.
TRACKS:
1. Progress Through Research (4:14)
2. Should I Care (3:34)
