    Remembering The Days

    [engl] First ever vinyl reissue of this sought–after POST–PUNK / COLD WAVE / MINIMAL SYNTH 12" from 1984, Germany. Days Of Sorrow formed in Dortmund in 1981 by a bunch of school friends influenced by the Post–Punk / New Wave scene. They were William Lennox (vocals, keyboard) André Schreiber (bass), Wolfram Huber (guitar) and Nicolai Sabotka (drums). Soon after, John Tollhaus, who ran a tiny record label (Tollhaus Records), discovered them at one of their rehearsals and impressed from what he heard and saw, helped the band to release their first 12". "Remembering The Days" saw the light in 1984 and featured four excellent tracks: "Wild World", "War", "Travel" and "Don’t Leave Me Drowning". A perfect mix of post–punk and minimal synth / cold wave. Dark and powerful sound with distorted guitar, minimal synths, drum machines, cold vocals...No wonder this is one of the most sought after minimal synth 12" from the 80s Euro scene. In 1985, Days Of Sorrow signed a deal with Rough Trade and after some line–up changes and a couple of releases, the band split up just before a scheduled Spanish tour.
