More Info

'One', Minimal Compact's debut mini-album, was recorded and released in 1981. The band was a trio at the time, consisting of Samy Birnbach, Berry Sakharof and Malka Spigel, with the assistance of various other musicians. The opening track, the emblematic Statik Dancin', soon became a classic and this mini-album immediately put Minimal Compact on the map.

'One By One' was the first full-length album by the band, who had become a quartet with the adjunction of drummer Max Franken. Recorded in 1982, the band's sound of that period is best exemplified by a song like "Babylonian Tower", with its driving rhythm, funky guitar, apocalyptical lyrics and Middle-Eastern flavouring.
