Artist : Iron Curtain 

Label : Pylon Records 

tarantula scream / 12"

Lead by Steve Field, Iron Curtain was a minimal wave band from Santa Barbara that played regularly in the L.A. underground music scene. They were heavily influenced by The Cure, O.M.D., Joy Division & Kraftwerk. The band released several records in small quantities even though they had great fan base, hence over the years these releases have gained mass cult appeal which has driven the prices of used copies to fetch hundreds of dollars. After several years of searching for Steve Fields the front man of the group, Pylon Records re-issued their major mini-album titled "Tarantula Scream" including the massive hit "The Condos". Don't miss out !!!

Artist : Iron Curtain 

Label : Pylon Records 

desertion 1982-1988 / 2x12"

This is Iron Curtain's complete vinyl output from 1983 to 1998 and adds Steven Fields solo 7" plus "The Condos" in a 1982 live version to it. There is just no bad Iron Curtain song to find, they are all fantastic. Also quite unique Steve's motivation for writing such socio-critical lyrics. Includes the 'Terror Story / Anorexia' 7" (1983), 'Tarantula Scream' 12"ep (1984), 'Like A Family / Telephone' 7" (1985), 'Shadow / The Burning' 12" (1987), "Legalize Heroin" 7" (1988). Nothing left to say but a must-buy for any lover of dark minimal electro-wave, on clear red vinyl edition !

artifact / LP

Iron Curtain was mainly Steven Fields from USA, with some support from Doug Norton, Bruce Cooper and a few other guests. For us, simply one the best acts ever coming from the States with some 4 vinyls output in between 1983 to 1988. The mood Iron Curtain did create is just enthralling, the unique monotony of drums and bass lines are like a trademark and are simply never boring. There is a darkness and a melancholy in those songs in which we can completely drown and find comfort. On 'Artifact' early previously unreleased demos and live tracks are compiled, and there is just not a single drop out. While the songs are mostly electronic they do remind more of Joy Division or early Fra Lippo Lippi maybe. Also there's early versions of "First Punk Wars" and their probably most well-known track "Condos". Strong advice : get it while you can ! 350 copies are quite few for this release.. Here on dark blue vinyl ;)

like a family / telephone


Artist : Iron Curtain 

Label : Pylon Records 

like a family / telephone / 7"

The original "Like A Family / Telephone" 7" was Iron's 3rd vinyl release back in 1985. "Like A Family" was basically made up based on the usual and typical Iron Curtain formula, but added some synthetic Kalimba and saxophone to the sound. "Telephone" is more synthetic than before, melancholic and good as always. The 7" is coming on beautiful transparent royal blue vinyl, and also being a rarity soon too, only 200 copies were made and no repress will be made. Better get this one while you can ;)

terror story / anorexia


Artist : Iron Curtain 

Label : Pylon Records 

terror story / anorexia / 7"

The original "Terror Story / Anorexia" 7" was Iron Curtain's 1st vinyl release back in 1983. "Terror Story" is an almost claustrophobic track, melodic angst as Steve mentioned once, while the chorus almost gives hope in a dark and cold world full of sick people. "Anorexia" then is one of Ironís most classic tracks setting straight the direction of many tracks to follow: stripped down drums, a monotonous yet lovely bass, some Moog synths, and great vocals dealing with serious topics. Itís one of the tracks you will love and play until your own death. So, cult classic, and while you shouldnít spend hundreds of dollars on the original, better get this one while you can. This reissue is coming on beautiful transparent dark green vinyl, and also being a rarity soon too, only 200 copies were made and no repress will be made...

Label : Pylon Records 

shadow / 12"

The original "Shadow" 12" was the artistís 4th & final vinyl release back in 1987. Beautiful and haunting dark wave with drum machine, dominant smooth bass and guitars on both tracks, simple but as always so effective. This reissue adds the previously unreleased tracks "Miami Beach" to the track list, an early live track dating back to 1982 and recorded at Club Iguana, which is purely electronic, dark, cold, and monotone, you will just love it ! Apart from the great music you'll get a rather unique vinyl colour as there are many (white, red, golden marbled, pink marbled, yellow marbled..). Also going to be a rarity soon, too, as only 300 copies were made and no repress will be made..

basic pain procedure


Artist : Nitzer Ebb 

Label : Pylon Records 

basic pain procedure / LP

Available now for the 1st time ever is Nitzer Ebb's 'Basic Pain Procedure' on vinyl, which many fans consider, the holy grail of their catalogue. This release which comprises some of their earliest material ever, was a cassette-only release that was primarily a tool to attract attention from record labels but was also available for purchase at the time. It was recorded in the Essex countryside in 1983, a year after the band played their 1st ever show at the Chelmsford YMCA, and was virtually the extent of their then live set. After this initial recording a slew of new songs were written that eventually went on to form the debut album, 'That Total Age', and, with the exception of "Home" which was reworked into KIA for the 'Belief' album, the 'Basic Pain Procedure' tracks were replaced never to be heard again. The release also contains a double sided insert with the alternate black & white cassette cover and rare photos and flyers from that era. Only 600 copies are pressed in total, here on black vinyl.!

open-air cinema


Artist : Neud Photo 

Label : Pylon Records 

open-air cinema / LP

Essential 6 track LP from New York via Detroit minimal wave producer, who takes the kraut of Kraftwerk, the sublime groove of early New Order, and the funk of Liquid Liquid to create vintage electronic masterpieces. Sleeve has a classic Factory chic to it. Listen and get transported back in time. What a perfect mix ;)

hearts and knives


Artist : Visage 

Label : Pylon Records 

hearts and knives / LP

Founding fathers of the new romantics and pioneers of the 80's sound Visage, return with a new album 'Hearts And Knives'. "It has been 29 years since the last Visage album and during that period it often seems like we have all lived through several lifetimes" comments Steve Strange, the bands creative force and flamboyant leader singer. The sound of 'Hearts And Knives' is classic Visage but with modern songs and style. There is the odd tip of the hat to modern production values but the sound is 1980-1982 Visage. It's vintage keyboards and synthesizers all the way. There's not software synths on this record! Many tracks are instantly recognizable as Visage. This album may have been a long time in coming but it is a purposeful statement of just where Steve Strange and Visage are at present. The past has been full of highs and lows but musically & creatively they are at a point where they can confidently present an album containing all the strands of their unique mix of music, fashion and style.
