MCMLXXXI or 1981, for those who prefer Arab numerals. Five years on from 1976. It’s the new single from Berlin duo Kaiser Souzai.

There’s nothing post-punk about this one. There’s nothing of the election of Reagan and the end of the Iranian hostage episode, the attempted Spanish coup d’état or the shooting of the pope. It’s simply focused on top big hair synth action with all the dials set to EPIC. As they explain ‘1981 Snake Plissken and the President of the United States “escaped from New York”. This is the Soundtrack to those events…’ Someone’s been watching too many trashy movies. Good tune, mind.
