Landscape’s highest topping tune is hands down “Einstein A Go Go”. Release in 1981 and reached the number #5 spot on UK singles chart. You can still hear the influence of 70’s toward the middle of this track, but it’s firmly in the synthpop genre. This track is taken from their 1981 full length From the Tea-rooms of Mars ….

Landscape – Einstein A Go Go
Hailing from Belgium, Absolute Body Control is a synthpop duo of Dirk Ivens and Eric Van Wonterghem. This track was taken from their 1983 full length of the same name. It’s synthpop with a bit of DIY punk feel to it — think Soft Cell-esque. I fell for that lead synth in the chorus that rides behind the lyrics “What’s the name of the movie, figures are so groovy”.
Absolute Body Control – Figures

Dirk Ivens is still producing music to this day, a recent examples are:
A cover of “Who Do You Love”
And his latest release under side-project Sonar with a new album titled, Sonar ?– Shadow Dancers. Here is a cut from the album, which is very Industrial.
Sonar – Creed
This one was a rather new find since I never heard it till about a month ago, got to love the internet. He is rather well known in Australian, not so much here in the States — at least in regard to this particular track. This track is lifted from his 1983 album, Positive Action. It’s a synthpop track that sounds somewhat like The Cars.
Alastair Riddell – Zero
