The material on this release was fully remastered by Eric van Wonterghem.

Parade Ground was founded by the brothers Jean-Marc and Pierre Pauly in 1981. Two years later they would release their first single, “Moan on the sly”. Their style has evolved over the years, passing from an icy and radical cold wave in their early years to a more danceable EBM sound later on. The band’s most recent output is the 2014 release “Strange World”.

Here’s one of the tracks on this compilation, “Strange world”.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
