Sorry, but the vinyls we received were all broken. That's why we had to return them completely and can't deliver any at the moment. The second delivery was also damaged. We are waiting for a new delivery, which is expected to arrive in end September / begin October.

Rational Youth will release a deluxe expanded edition of their 1982 debut album, Cold War Night Life. This special reissue will be released as 1CD and 2LP translucent vinyl formats featuring extensive liner notes, testimonials, and rare photos from the band’s personal archives. The expanded reissue also includes both the original 1982 album tracks and all of the related original extended remixes and singles. All tracks have been newly remastered in 2019.

When originally released in 1982, Cold War Night Life was the first all-synth pop album to ever be released in Canada. Founding member of Rational Youth, Tracy Howe, remembers the recording process: "The most remarkable thing about making this album, from an historical perspective, was the fact that we were making an all-synthesizer pop album, and in Montreal in 1981-82 that was pretty new. A lot of our arrangements and all the synth sounds were worked out at home and sequenced, so when we got to the studio we would set all the synths up and patch everything, tell the engineer to put machine in record and roll the tape, we’d start the MC-4 MicroComposer and half a song would instantly go to tape. The rock and roll engineers we had were kind of stunned by this, and by the fact that we were using a drum machine (a Roland TR-808, one of the first on Canadian shores)…"
