The Normal were born in 1978 when Daniel Miller, inspired by the attitube of punk, and the music of people like Can, Neu, Kraftwerk etc. bought a KORG700S and a four track recorder and set up Mute Records to release the resultant single called “T.V.O.D.” backed with “Warm Leatherette”. Despite The Normal’s underground profile and minimal output their influence and contribution to electronic music is significant.

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.
