In early 1985, Minimal Compact were searching for the right producer for their new album and got in touch with Wire’s Colin Newman. Colin accepted the invitation and spent the best part of the summer in Brussels recording and mixing what will become Minimal Compact’s most commercially-successful album: “Raging Souls”. The band’s sound had become broader, and their writing has attained a kind of classic quality, with a series of great songs such as “My Will”, “When I Go”, “Autumn Leaves”, “Raging Souls” and “Returning Wheel” all crammed into the same album, which also included a foray into electronic dance music (“Shouts & Kisses”) and “Sananat”, a very catchy Levantine-sounding track in which Fortis and Birnbach sing in an imaginary hybrid of Hebrew and Arabic.  Like its predecessors, “Raging Souls” was fervently received by the band’s ever-growing fan base.
