last night i had the pleasure of talking to tony occhiello, filmmaker, producer, director. he directed some very early music videos by electro/synthpop bands like plexus as well as none other than my beloved doris norton. i reached out to see if he had any insight as to why there was such little video footage of doris. here's a bit of his portfolio, keep in mind this was 1982. imo this was really ahead of its time and some of that symbolism i think has influenced others for sure. lobotomy via musical gear and test equipment, hah. there was previously an edited promo video that her label put out to promote the reissue, but tony uploaded the full vid at some point in the last few years.

 

 

he told me that the label poo-poo'd this video because they considered it 'too daring', the lobotomy scene they did on the drummer was a little too risque for em. it was shot with 16mm film for the disco/live segment and 3/4" u-matic videotape for the apartment segment.

I don't know if you remember, but a super long time ago you posted some Doris Norton Lab stuff in here.  There is this one song I still play sometimes.  It's that kind of super rare, super awesome shit that I love best about theshizz.

i'm not sure this qualifies in here, i think it does

 

took a synth rabbit hole down spotfiy, finding some quality goods.  Lost Years is pretty neat, yeah neat alright.

 

this song

 

i get it...I get why people like synthpop and/or wave, synthwave.  It sounds like capcom Street Fighter II Turb, our ears conditioned for the greatness that would come or later be discovered.

 

ooooooow, somebody may have known this this whole time, the whole time, like Miranda Hillard in Mrs. Doubtflyer starring Robin Williams and Sally Field,  "THEWHOLETIME!"

Sounds like capcom is not a bad reason, but I think if you expand that more broadly you would get the reason.

 

I like 80s music, including 80s synth, therefore I like synthpop and new retrowave etc.  They make music that could have been made in the 80s.

 

Even deeper, it is kind of like the same reason that I like video game music or chiptune.  I like music for the notes, and as long as the notes to a song are good (and the instrument isn't fucking annoying, like a jackhammer or something) then I like the song.  Even if it is in a video game.  Even if it is an older electronic music format.  Even if it is classical music from 500 years ago, or some myspace douchebag's love sonnet, or whatever.

 

I grew up with 80s music of course, so I can appreciate 80s synth and electric guitar etc, therefore I enjoy good notes using those instruments.

 

It's not all about the notes of course, because the instruments themselves give a timbre to their respective melodies.  Everyone knows this instinctually I think, because a drum and base techno song elicits a different response than heavy metal shredding, and punk covers can change the feel of a song.

 

So with synthpop you got all kinds of cool types of songs that you just don't always see anymore:

 

 

The dark dystopian sci-fi synth like Futurescape by Megadrive

 

 

 

 

The soul searching electric guitar ballad like Let's Talk by Timecop 1983

 

 

 

 

The smooth synth ride like Starforce's Cosmic Voyage

 

 

 

The 80s you win thanks for playing ending music that is Through The Window by New Arcades

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhKPVetTg_I

 

 

 

But if the only reason you need to like synthpop is the capcom sound, that's enough of a reason all the same.  I hope you enjoy it man.

Le Nectar - Space Oddysey

 

The out of tune cowbell is more than compensated by the raddity of the synth.

That first song is named The Eternal Talking and it is chillingly profound for how simple it is.
