Brilliant melancholy synthpop trac. from a bootleg compilation with tracks from the german 80's new wave magazine Flexipop, wich used to come with flexidiscs and tapes.
Been trying to dig up information about the band, without much luck. from the minimalist sound of this song it may even be just one person.
It's a simple song, (complete with a preset 80's synth drumline)
yet it's very effective in conveying a romanticised sense of loss and dread. It's a good song. You can listen to it on sunday afternoons.

I received my first kiss while that song was playing. 21 Apr 05 ·glorious: What would you like to know about the band? 11 Feb 06 ·markwarner: I am surprised anyone has heard of us. It's been 24 years since we split. We only recorded 2 12" EP's. I will be happy to answer any questions. 09 Jun 06 ·Henke: I remember the song "are kisses out of fashion?". It used to be my favourite in the early eighties (and still is one of my favourites together with New Orders "Blue monday" and ODWs "Lawnchairs") and I tried to get it but couldnt find it in sweden in the early eighties. I dated a girl who had a compilation with the song on it, unfortunately i didnt get the right upportunity to steal it....
Did "Sudeten Creche" record any more songs?
Any chance that they could be found on the internet? I guess the records are not easy to find....
Who were the members? Where are they now? Did they play live? 18 Jun 06 ·markwarner: Website http://www.sudetencreche.com

Do I have to visit all these underground vinyl shops to try to get the songs? I have "are kisses out of fashion?" on an old cassette from around 1984 (its getting noisy) 21 Jun 06 ·markwarner: Henke,
