Utterly essential and hugely influential single re-released on 7" vinyl. The Normal were born in 1978 when Daniel Miller, inspired by the attitude of punk, and the music of people like Can, Neu, Kraftwerk etc. bought a korg 700s and a four track recorder and set up Mute to release the resultant single called 'TVOD' backed with 'Warm Leatherette' which investigated the erotic possibilities of a car crash. Before punk it would have been inconceivable for someone of Miller's self confessed musical limitations to release such a record. Over a quarter of a century later the first release on Mute records is still as original and groundbreaking as ever.
