• Image of Candidate - Side By Side (dsr098LP) - blue vinyl

Kas Produkt was a key figure in the French scene at the beginning 80s. They proved it was possible to sing in English and have success in other countries but they are also responsible for the birth of an electronic-pop scene.
From Nancy (the home-town of both Kas Produkt and OTO) Candidate emerges in 1983. The boy/girl duo (the same formula as Kas Produkt) released their first cassette (to be reissued on vinyl by desire later this year) in 1984 on Permis De Construire (Nox, Geinst Naït, Muslimgauze, Zero Kama…) to be shortly followed by a split 7’’ with Gangrène.
In 1987 they released their debut (and olny) album for local label Dum Dum Records. ‘Side By Side’ was really well received and the band played a lot of gigs to support it in France, Belgium, Switzerland and even Poland (more than 100 concerts during their career).

‘Side By Side’ is now reissued for the first time and has been entirely remastered by Anders Post.

For fans of Deux, Moderne, Kas Produkt, Martin Dupont, Dark Day…
