Girlfriend Records – Memory Chord
Genre: electro, new wave
|The remarkable album intro: “Shortly after midnight on September 18th, 1975, a group of Italian scientists stationed in a remote location on the Arctic tundra received a mysterious series of encrypted messages from a source that identified itself as (HR). For the next ten years, the group received similarly strange messages on this date annually. Puzzled, the researchers attempted to triangulate the source of the (HR) code. They could only deduce its origins to somewhere along the outer edge of the Andromeda Galaxy. In 1985, the transmissions suddenly ceased. The contents of the code remained indecipherable.”
