(5% DISCOUNT THRU 2-28-20) Compiled by Saint Etienne's Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs, "The Tears Of Technology" celebrates this brief period when scruffy synth duos from the provinces broke through and took over British pop. Like mellotrons before them, synths could project a strange and deep emotion; listen to OMD's 'Sealand', or the Human League's 'WXJL Tonight', and it was clear that something in the wiring had an inherent melancholy. "The Tears Of Technology" celebrates an era of electronic melancholia, synthesized intimacies and insights - even Tomorrow's World didn't see that coming.
