Robert Rental – Double Heart (1980)

“Double Heart” gave ample evidence that Rental could bridge the gap between synth pop and post punk, aligning the pastoral prettiness of Eno’s Another Green World with the scenes of urban decay and despair that characterised PIL or Joy Division. A solo album seemed the next obvious step, and in the months that followed Rental turned his attention to creating some astounding soundscapes with his Wasp synthesizer, a British-made instrument that had a warmer yet more aggresive sound than the Japanese-made Korgs and Yamahas favoured by Depeche Mode and The Human League.
