Post-punk Noir from MINNY POPS

Minny Pops

Like electro-punk luminaries Suicide, Dutch darkwavers¬†Minny Pops were part electronic rock band, part art project. Their first single, “Kojak”, a combo of old school Korg drum machine, new wave bassline and darkly humorous,¬†noiry spoken word, established their reputation in the art-rock scene. Soon after, they’d be supporting Joy Division in Eindhoven and the Factory Club in Manchester.

Check out this video for the song “Time”, a pretty trivial song name considering Wally Van Middendorp, the dark brains behind Minny Pops, has released songs with names like “We’re Glad Elvis Is Dead” and “Daddy Is My Pusher”:
