Seven Code (tape, 1982)


Manufactured in Holland it says on the cover, but the recordings were made in tel Aviv, in september-november 1981. I never heard of them until I got it from Dr. Freakowitz. Seven Code is Fortis (vocals, guitar, synth) and Yoyo on synth, bass, vocal) with one Schultz as guest on vocal and saxophone. Quite nice minimal synth music.

Fortis and Shultz playing "new wave" in 1978: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtjvI7L-P8M

Fortis was also in a minimal-synth group called Chromosome that put out a quite good 5 song EP around 1981 (audio at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEDn-B-RjIQ

Rami Fortis is a well known artist still active in Israel.
