Ruins - Occasional Visits


Previously included on compilations from Minimal Wave and Mannequin, the four-piece Ruins ran from the turn of the ‘80s until late ’85, a golden run which resulted a trio of LPs and four 12”s, from which this compilation is sourced.

In key with New Wave pop’s experimental tendencies, Ruins make songs first and foremost, but they’re detectably porous to influence from nascent US disco-rap-funk as much as David Bowie and Japan, nailing a classic sound marbled with a playfully ambiguous idiosyncrasy.
