This was 'Mute' records first label release In 1978.

The Normal (aka Daniel Miller) was a film editor who, after being inspired by the book Crash by J.G. Ballard, released "T.V.O.D / Warm Leatherette" single in 1978 that he recorded in his apartment on a TEAC 4 track tape recorder and the Korg synthesiser. Both tracks were minimalist electronic songs. He wanted the sound of the recordings to be visual, like driving along a highway between large buildings then going through a tunnel.

He's best known as the founder of Mute Records.
