Ceramic Hello - The Absence Of A Canary (1981)

Ceramic Hello was formed in 1980 by Brett Wickens, in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. Having just left future-Canadian-pop-sensations the Spoons, Wickens teamed up with Roger Humphreys, recording just one 7" single, followed quickly by "The Absence Of A Canary", in 1981. The music was inspired by the contemporary synthpop sounds coming out of the UK (OMD, John Foxx, Gary Numan, et al), but the production was decidedly more lo-fi, and combined with Humphreys' neo-classical contributions, the result was a unique electronic pop sound.
