Hand-numbered edition of 500 copies. From the archive of Truus de Groot, VOD Records haul out 14 unreleased New Wave gems by the legendary Plus Instruments. Established in Eindhoven, the Netherlands in 1978 by de Groot - also singer in popular band, Nasmak - Plus Instruments released an EP on Dutch label Plurex before a chance encounter with Rhys Chatham's drummer David Linton in 1980 sparked her decision to move to New York in 1981, where she reformed Plus Instruments with a pre-Sonic Youth Lee Ranaldo on guitar and Linton on drums. The songs on 'Exile In Paradise' orbit a club-wise sound, heavily percussive and urgently funky with wayward melodies and de Groot's distinctive vocals spanning lusty proto-techno a la CHBB on 'Paradise' or the disco-infected 'Bodies' thru to the industrial thunk of 'Don't Forgive Me' via melodic delights in the playful 'Things' or the chiming New Wave groover, 'Kalt', and onto eerily charming miniatures such as 'New York New York' or 'Das Ist Gut So'. As always with V-o-D's previously unreleased treats, it's a wonder that these great songs have been neglected for so long. Tipped!
