Absolute Body Control – Figures

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”.
