Legendary synth project of the 80's, a duo of John Dyson and Dave Ward-Hunt. Before trying his hand as an electronic musician, John played guitar ala The Shadows (one of his influences). The keyboard contributions were limited to auxiliary string parts for his rock compositions. However, after meeting with the late Dave Wart-Hunt, John made a complete u-turn towards the electronic side of things. Dave was an analogue / modular enthusiast, and hearing the sequencer playing, John immediately had lots of ideas about how the final result of their collaboration could sound. Thus, the Wavestar duo was born in the early 1980's. Their third official release Moonwind got rave reviews from the EM press back when it was released. The music sounds like a cross of 80's Tangerine Dream, Pink Floyd and Kitaro. Although I must admit that it's a bit too saccharine for my tastes, if melody is your thing, you could do much worse than add some of their CD's to your collection. - http://pugachov.ru/eem/wfram.html
It remains to this day one of the greatest UK Electronica performances. Nearly 25 years ago Wavestar entered the stage as virtual unknowns, and left a phenomenon whose reputation remains undiminished to this day despite a relatively short career and the untimely demise of sequencer king Dave Ward-Hunt.
But John Dyson is still going strong and he has resurrected this tape from the mists of time. Hear how the audience grows into the concert as their wonderment increases. Wavestar were literally mobbed after this concert, their stall swept clean of every tape available.
To preserve the atmosphere and authenticity of the concert it remains largely untouched, but for some sympathetic digital remastering (by JD himself). Hence you will hear some imperfections and "warts" but that's what live music is all about. Enjoy Wavestar's first release in over a decade. And perhaps not their last. MusicZeit Tracklist:
