The Normal – T.V.O.D. (1978)

After buying a Korg 700s synthesizer from Macari’s music shop in London, Daniel Miller recorded and released a single under the name The Normal. This was “T.V.O.D.”/”Warm Leatherette”. Both tracks were minimalist electronic songs influenced by the Crash novel. He wanted the sound of the recordings to be visual, like driving along a highway between large buildings then going through a tunnel. The single was recorded in Daniel Miller’s mother’s house using a TEAC four track tape recorder and the Korg synthesiser.
