Minimal Compact Announce LP “Creation is Perfect” and Share Video for New Version of “Statik Dancin”

Influential Israeli post-punk group Minimal Compact have announced the release of Creation is Perfect—an album of new versions of classic tracks by the band, plus a brand new track “Holy Roar”—their first in over 30 years.

Formed in Amsterdam in 1980 after relocating from Tel-Aviv, Minimal Compact were a unique voice in original post-punk explosion, featuring five very different and distinct personalities: Berry Sakharof (guitars/ keyboards/vocals); Malka Spigel (bass/keyboards/vocals); Samy Birnbach aka DJ Morpheus (vocals); Rami Fortis (guitar/vocals); and Max Franken (drums).

Together the band released several ground-breaking and influential albums, including Deadly Weapons (1984) – which spawned the club hit “Next One Is Real” – and their most commercial album, “Raging Souls” (1985).

Accompanying the announcement is a new version of live favourite “Statik Dancin”. Of the new version, Bassist/keyboardist and vocalist Malka Spigel comments:

“We still play “Statik Dancin’” like we always did: driving, minimal, a bit moronic but still catchy. This version has a combination of the energy of the live version plus a fresh sounding production”.

Watch the new video for “Statik Dancin” below:

Minimal Compact have reunited, collaborating with producer and friend Colin Newman of Wire to re-record the band’s signature songs using a mix of live recordings and studio-tooled performances.

Creation is Perfect is due for release on October 25 via the band’s own Minimal Compact label.

Creation is Perfect tracklist:

  1. Statik Dancin’
  2. Take Me Away
  3. Nada
  4. Raging Souls
  5. Not Knowing
  6. My Will
  7. The Well
