The subtitle for this excellent compilation reveals everything you need to know of its contents: Explorations in Irish Post Punk, DIY and Electronic Music 1980-83. Curated by DJ and promoter Darren McCreesh, Strange Passion uncovers long-lost gems from the early Irish post-punk scene, an often ignored scene that birthed bands like U2 and My Bloody Valentine. The collection is expertly arranged and eclectic, from the menacing, propulsive rhythms of The Threat and Chant! Chant! Chant! to the sneering shouts of Virgin Prunes to the eerie electronic effects of Operating Theatre and SM Corporation.
