Legendary synthesist behind Oppenheimer Analysis, Martin Lloyd, passes awayPosted on 30/04/13
The Minimal Wave label informs that Martin Lloyd, legendary synthesist behind Oppenheimer Analysis, passed away this morning due to liver failure. Says the label: "Martin was a brilliant, charming man, full of life and had a deep passion for electronic music. He will be sorely missed. Martin Lloyd R.I.P. (1950-2013"
Oppenheimer Analysis was the duo Andy Oppenheimer and Martin Lloyd who met at the 1979 World Science Fiction Convention in Brighton, England. Over the next few years the duo became involved in the developing Futurist and New Romantic style sub-cultures. During this period Martin recorded as Analysis, both alone and with David Rome of Drinking Electricity. They released their first single, "Surface Tension/Connections" on David's Survival label in 1981. Meanwhile Andy held his own occasional club nights and continued to work as a science writer and editor, later becoming a nuclear expert.
In 1982 Andy and Martin began writing and recording together at Feedback Studio in Battersea, and performed several times as Oppenheimer Analysis. Their first demo tape and the later twelve-track “New Mexico” cassette were sold at gigs and by mail-order. Andy subsequently recorded and performed with Chris Ransome as Oppenheimer Ransome. The duo had started recording and performing again recently following the recent revival of interest in early electronic minimalism and Cold Wave music.
As a tribute we added the song "The devil's dancers" from the band to our Spotify playlist.
