rutinas / 10"

Kremlyn was a techno-pop duet which is not, obviously, the solution to urban boredom problems, is launched in Barcelona as something brilliant and unusual, astonishing for all they achieve despite having little means, but making the most of their limited resources. J.J., an 18-year-old boy with a keyboard and an organ, from which he plays the drum machine, as well as other effects, for which he is the only responsible because of his autodidactic investigation. Amongst all his songs, "Rutinas" stands out; it's an excellent composition which, with no doubt, should have reached the 1st position of hits parades if someone decides to edit and promote it. In Yazoo's techno-pop style, however, Kremlyn's future were not very clear, due to a slight passiveness showed by its components, which refrains their music from being as well-known as it deserves..

Interesting release on this most enigmatic of labels. This a split release between Kris Tall on A-side and Beefcake (aka Robag Whrume & Volker Kahl) on B-side. Both sides contain a mix of live instruments and electronic bips, with Kris Tall leaning towards more post rock and Beefcake more mixed up and varied with touches of straight electronica and some lovely almost purely classical sounds. Atmospheric and melancholic for the most part... and very nice too ;)

qu'est-ce qu'il a (d'plus que moi ce négro là?) / 12"

Philippe Krootchey was a musician, Dj, radio and television host born in Versailles, France in 1954. In the early 70's he joined political gay liberation movement Revolutionary Homosexual Action Front (Front Homosexuel d’Action Révolutionnaire) that gave radical visibility to homosexuals. Turning to the decadent nightclub scene of Paris, Philippe became one of the most important disc jockeys of the late 70's and early 80's holding residencies at les Bains-Douches and the Privilège. Philippe's look was striking and his elegance and charisma massive. In 1981 he formed the band Love International with Philippe Chany and Fred Versailles and released the hit disco single "Dance On The Groove (And Do The Funk)". He also sang back up on both "Jungle Hurt" by Mathematiques Modernes and "Les Baisers D'amants" by Lizzy Mercier Descloux in 1981. Between 1984 and 1988 he released 3 maxi 12" singles under his surname 'Whatazzy' (1984), 'I Hear My Ears' (1986), 'Cruel Justifier' (1988). In 1984 Krootchey released his debut single "Qu'Est C'Qu'Il A (D'Plus Que Moi Ce Négro Là?)" on disco label Casablanca Records. Subsequently the single was re-released the same year but sung in English as "Whatazzy". For this release he teamed up with former Love International bandmate Fred Versailles, who shared his love for Kraftwerk and Yellow Magic Orchestra as well as glam rock and 70's black American soul music. Fred remembers, "The idea was to send a message about racism against black people with a humorous tone. The French title translates to "What Has This Nigger Got, That I Do Not Have?" Reversing the racial scales, Philippe (who is black) would get the girls and the fame, making white people jealous. It was Philippe's tactful way to joke about racism he had experienced and overcame". The result is a slick synthetic funk and electro boogie reminiscent of Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambata. Philippe rap and subverting racism at the same time. On the B-side is "Voodoo" a slowed down instrumental dub version that stretches out the original to over 7-minutes. Sadly on September 2, 2004 Philippe Krootchey died of a cerebral aneurysm, just short of celebrating his 50th birthday. For the jacket Philippe asked his friends Pierre et Gilles to do the cover artwork. They made a portrait of Philippe as chocolate powder mascot 'Banania' inspired advertisement with a wide grin and red fez cap. This was a radical criticism on the embodiment of racism still present in the 80's from the colonial Era in France. Each copy includes 2 postcards with lyrics, photos and liner notes by Fred Versailles. "He belonged to nothing, no clan, he was light in the good sense of the word and his supple resistance persisted". (Jean-Baptiste Mondino)

Cool Italian dudes Avant! recently released a 7” by German Cassetten 82/Hot Wave outfit Krysmopompas. The A-side, "Gesa", is a line drawing of the graceful movements traced on the dusty floor of an abandoned hall by a mechanical bride and an electrical groom as they orbit around each other in their clockwork ballet while a crooning ghost dressed in an ill-fitting tuxedo provides dada admonitions from his pulpit.

this desolation / 7"

7" by Irish duo Kubo, who consist of Aidan Casserly (also member of synth act Empire State Human), and Brian O'Malley (also member of Polydroid). This will be the 1st vinyl release by the band, after the initial tape single 'I Dream Electric', on Manchester based label Vocoder Tapes. Kubo pay homage to cubo-futurism, the early 20th century Russian art movement which concerned itself with contemporary concepts of the future and the technological triumph of humanity over nature. Kubo's futuristic synth stylings perfectly fit their name. For lazy comparisons think of 80's synth protagonists, O.M.D & Depeche Mode or even Associates, owing to Aidan's beautifully soaring soulful vocals. But Kubo are more than that, they...

tv scape / LP

Kuruki was a Belgian minimal synth-pop band project spearheaded by Ghent based musician Gerry D'Haeyer and Alain Bureau. The band was founded early 80's and shortly after it's conception a 1st release was recorded. The single "Crocodile Tears" immediately hit the charts and became cult. Afterwards the band released 12" including maxi single "Such A Liar". After intensive touring a new single "Just A Cat" was spawned in 1983. As a live band at that time Alan Gevaert, from dEUS, and Chris Whitley joined them. Live, Kuruki put down a mysterious act, with a lot of colour & show elements. In 1984 the final release "TV Scape", a full lp, was released. On this record the last pieces of the puzzle fitted together. On an accurately crafted structure of frivolous minimal electronics Sally Joy & Monsieur Tic sang about an era wherein alienation & mass consumption are an everyday routine & television offers the ideal escape. The lp is remastered at the Equus masteringstudios & is pressed on 160gr quality vinyl. Essential..!

'The Wait' from American artist L'Avenir, minimal synth pairs perfectly solemn, reverb-drenched vocals with largely electronic analog sounds. Often heavy synth bass lines combine with soaring string sounds and driving drum; machine rhythms in this cohesive set of songs. While L'Avenir's love of vintage wave music comes through clear as to influence, the album never reverts to nostalgic for its own sake but rather comes across as a decidedly contemporary spin on the dark electronic sounds by established artists of decades past. A very strong 1st offering from the new Barcelona based label Cold Beats Records. Tip !!!

L.A.S.'s Crime (the initials stand for Lord Arthur Savile's Crime, a famous short novel by Oscar Wilde) is an electronic band from Siena (Italy) founded in 1984 by Sandro Marchetti (vocals, synthesizer, programming) and Maria Elena Brogi (vocals, synthesizers). With a music sometimes soft, sometimes melancholic, but always fully electronic the duo from 1985 to 1989 L.A.S.'s Crime produced 5 demo tapes and a studio album registered at Sound City studio of Florence, but remained unreleased for label close. During the 5 years of activity (85-89) the band had various additional members for the live concerts, but the original nucleous always have represented the true creative engine with more than 60 songs in a few years.. Some of this songs have survived for 25 years exclusively for users' choice, spreading through the web. Today, 13 selected songs can have finally a new life on vinyl, giving to the listener a small piece of 80's remained intact... Limited edition 300 copies including a 16 pages booklet with unreleased photos and lyrics.

mutatio (modified) / LP

Formed by Sandro Marchetti and Maria Elena Brogi and active during the second half of the 80's, L.A.S.'s Crime are named after Oscar Wilde's tale 'Lord Arthur Savile's Crime',a short semi-comic mystery story that was published in 1891 along with 'The Canterville Ghost', 'The Sphinx Without A Secret' and 'The Model Millionaire'. This particular name reflected Sandro's way of conceiving the lyrics. Take, for example tracks like "Land Of Nothing", "Silent Words" or "Infect Dawn" coming from the 'Inanitas' tape, they are written in a style that remembers poems or late nineteenth literature. They produced 6 demo tapes during those years ('Five Lies', 'Anomaly', 'Inanitas', 'Electa' and 'Korobi') plus 'Abyss 43', an unreleased album, and during the last 20 years their music was hard to find. The last year the label Mannequin released the track "I'll Merry Go Round" on the 2nd volume of 'Danza Meccanica' compilation and after few months issued a band compilation containing 13 tracks coming from their 1985-89 demos. These releases revamped the audience's interest into the band. It was time for Sandro to try something new and started to work on the old tracks just to give them a new life. Thanks to J.A.M. Traxx we have 'Mutatio (Modified)', a vinyl album limited to 300 copies containing 7 reworked versions of old songs remixed by L.A.S.'s Crime themselves, FerDJ Dms (Ferdinando Maggio remixed 'Epode' along with the band) and DMKD (Canadian band formed by David Kristian and Mary Davidson that remixed 'Flax Girl Room'). Using always the original synthesizers, Sandro added and substituted some sounds succeeding into giving to the songs more strength and energy keeping also the original atmosphere. If with the compilation 'Disphoria 1985-1989' you discovered the music of a good electronic cold-wave band, on 'Mutatio (Modified)', you'll be carried away by the final result, as they sound powerful compared to some of the nowadays bands that are in love with those sounds but they are part of the original scene...

mesmérique

mesmérique / LP

Not everything is known and explained. On the fall of 18th century Mesmerism managed to transform simple suggestions into the modern hypnotism known today, throwing the basics for other scientific disciplines largely diffused in our times, as psicotherapy, psychology, music therapy. 
But the animal magnetism conceived by Mesmer was only a pseudo scientific practice, it worked for other causes than those believed by its own discoverer. 
Sometimes things work perfectly for reasons man cannot understand. L.A.S.'s Crime, an italian duo fascinated by electronic music, started its activity in 80's with a long list of demo tapes, partecipating to several compilations and later recording 2 vinyls for well known european labels.
 'Mesmérique' is their 3rd album reissued for Domestica Records, created with 11 original recordings taken from their 80's 4tracks demotapes, but restored today in a professional studio: you will be scattered into a path of 11 vivid and hypnotic visions never reissued before on vinyl. Tracks are ordered chronologically, from the 1st to the last years of 80's, showing the creative travel of the band towards the decade.
 Listening after listening, you will gradually become more conscious of the hypnotic nature of this music, full of contrasts, filled with endless repetitions echoing into memory in mysterious ways: a concise and minimalistic style who has kept alive this music during the last 30 years, by porting it from tape to cd, and later through internet, from a fan to another, from a musical genre to another, from a decade to another. 
This music has been jealously preserved by those who knew and loved it: but the simplicity of its structures, the oblique melodies, the small length of the songs, are apparently weak reasons for this 30 years long devotion, it is somehow plausible there can be other reasons, far more complex to explain than it would be legitimate to believe. 
So no coincidence that the tape is also called magnetic stripe, and that the turntable is a magneto acustic device. Edition of 300 copies including an insert with lyrics and additional information. Hand-printed with letterpress.

The 3-headed musical creature La Chatte was born in 2003 in Paris, formed by Vava Dudu, a pluridisciplinary artist, Stéphane Argillet aka Stereovoid, visual and sound artist member of the French collaborative France Fiction, and Nikolu, a polymorphous musician. Their music, a kind of post-punk electro-zouk, is ryhthmic, dark, distorted, strident and chocolate-flavored. Renowned for their head blowing performances, the band has remained so far really discrete with its discography focussing on live collaborations with the likes of vivid astro focus or Voin de Voin for instance, crossing roads all over Europe..

giant / axis

Artist : La Fete Triste / The Harrow 

Label : Aufnahme + Wiedergabe 

giant / axis / 7"

Haunting is the 1st word that comes to mind when La Fête Triste and The Harrow join forces, releasing a split together with the titles "Giant" & "Axis". The solo-project La Fête Triste is the enigmatic and sorrowful new-wave project by Gabriel Brero, one of the men involved with Aufnahme + Wiedergabe, based out of Berlin (now in Hamburg). His twisted synthesizer and drum-machine-driven project derive inspiration out of both minimal synth and post-punk, coating his arms with a new-wave overlay that deliver the greatest sadness with melancholia at the middle, together with melodies that will ensnare you imminently. Add to that a guitar with concrete rhythms that adds a touch of your own dismay in the mix. Before this release, he had put out a single called "Lèvres Froides", and he also did a split-release together with Lebanon Hanover, titled 'Lebanon Hanover / La Fête Triste' where 4 tracks were put out. A lot of people have apparently been longing for new material for quite a while, 3 years to be exact. Together with The Harrow, he delves into this split-release with the track "Giant". An at 1st ballad-esque track which soars through the landscape of sound with a post-punk sound with an almost anthemic touch to it. The mournful and depressive vocals with a German intonation at the end makes it a lot more impressive, because it builds up to a magnificent track because of that. The Harrow, on the other hand, had delivered their 1st official self-titled debut on the now defunct label Function Operate last year. Even though some of their sound isn't that emotive for me to begin with, I must say that I am impressed when I hear "Axis", a track which breathes the otherwise so scarcely atmosphere that had been lacking before. It's got more warmth than the earlier release of theirs, and to add insult to injury; Vanessa Irena's vocals attract you to their post-punk sound even more, as she adds another dimension to an otherwise good track. Making it even greater. The Harrow have been interesting in several ways before, but they haven't really made anything that have been as great as this. Here, they show their true potential as craftsmen. Bringing their music to a whole other level together with their minimal approach to post-punk, with goth undertones that make you take it in even more. Everything is emotionless, but at the same time very emotive. A good paradox to be written upon their release as it is. Looking forward to hearing more of this kind of sound, in future releases. An interesting sway into the right direction ;)

symphonie neuronale

Label : Enfant Terrible 

symphonie neuronale / LP

Behind this project is Jérôme Fontan (aka Porn.Darsteller) who sadly passed away last year. That was 10 years ago. He focussed 1st on music for a silent film (El Sexto Sentido, Spain 1928) and after that on La Mort De L'Hippocampe. La Mort De L'Hippocampe is something very different from Porn.Darsteller. There is not much pop in this music and there is not much electro in it either... it has experimental, industrial and classical sides, all sounds are done with analog equipment like Minimoog and tape echo, and acoustic instruments. This album is somewhere between cabaret, Die Todliche Doris and Schönberg... This project was much more of a performance group centered around Jérôme Fontan then a studio project. The LP was planned to be a co-production between Enfant Terrible and Verbascripta, the label founded by Jérôme. The label is continued by the other members of La Mort De L'Hippocampe. A 2nd album of La Mort De L'Hippocampe will be released later, also as a co-production between Enfant Terrible and Verbascripta. Have a nice trip ;)

cheminement de l'extase / LP

La Mort De L'Hippocampe was the short-lived project by Jérôme Fontan after he stopped his elektro project Porn.Darsteller. The project ended with the unexpected death of Jérôme in June 2011. This is the 2nd and last album, but was produced before the 'Symphonie Neuronale' album released earlier this year. Jérôme preferred that album to be released the 1st. So it was done.. 'Cheminement De L'Extase' is much more a spiritual record as the 1st one. It comes in 2 parts. The 1st part is a metaphysic poem illustrate with experimental, industrial and classical sounds. Next to analog sounds done with Minimoog and tape echo also acoustic instruments like percussion and electric violin are used. The 2nd part is mostly based on texts from Hildegard von Bingen. This part is rather old-school industrial in sound but this is mixed with medieval instrument like "Vielle A Roue" and "Bombarde Bretonne". The lyrics are done in spoken word style by Isabelle Toro who was also featured on the 1st released album. Again this LMDH album is released as a co-production between Enfant Terrible and Verbascripta. And again the artwork is true craftsmanship done by Bran.

chapitre 2 / 7"

Original copies found of this 2nd release by La Séduction Des Innocents (aka Le Syndicat Electronique). After the great debut LP 'Chapitre 1' we are again treated with more dark minimal electronics. On the A-side of this 7" are 2 simply brilliant pieces. "Crucifixion" is an extremely dark and spooky pulsating track with haunting screams and yells. This is the perfect soundtrack for an old black and white ghost movie. "La Petite Vénus" is more industrial and rhythmic orientated but still in a very 80's sort of style. The melody and the vocal parts are vaguely reminiscent of early Death In June. Overall the atmosphere is that of a classic apocalyptic folk song. "Abandon" on the B-side has the same dark mood and also has an apocalyptic folk feeling, even though it has more electro related rhythmic sounds. 'Chapitre 2' creates a mythical, almost sacred, atmosphere in your surroundings when you play it. Released in 2005 as a limited hand-numbered edition of 514 copies, including a postcard.

Following his 'Natural Insight' ep earlier in the year comes 'Intergalactic Communicationz', 4 more fresh tracks of acid, techno and electro that is brilliantly evocative. The Portuguese artist known as Goncalo Salgado also please son labels like Unknown to the Unknown and is a real hardware master. "At The Gates Ov Futron" is a turbulent lack track with zipping acid and a cacophony of percussion that is visceral as well as cinematic. "Drexciyan Aquarium" is, as the name suggest, an aqueous electro track that slithers and slides through an expansive underwater world. "Poseidon's Dream" then offers a more rugged electro groove that is backed by heavenly pads and a real sense of loss in the synths. Last of all, "Intergalactic Communication" closes out this far travelling and intergalactic ep with a sci-fi deep house track that is filled with light, 909s and a sense that the end of the world is coming.

matter

Artist : Lassigue Bendthaus 

Label : Dark Entries 

matter / LP+7"

Lassigue Bendthaus is the electro-industrial project of Uwe Schmidt (aka Atom or Señor Coconut) from Germany. Uwe Schmidt began making music in the early 80's, 1st playing drums, then switching to programming a drum computer after he had heard a Linn Drum on the radio. In 1986 he co-founded the cassette label N.G. Medien, on which his 1st musical work under the name Lassigue Bendthaus, 'The Engineer's Love', was released. Soon after, he started to work on what would become his 1st official record release, the album 'Matter'. The recordings and production began in 1986 and took almost 4 years, until the album finally came out in 1991 on the German Parade Amoureuse label. Musically somewhere between late industrial and EBM, yet already anticipating acid and techno, this production managed to cause quite a stir, due to its advanced production techniques. Songs pay strong homage to Kraftwerk, approaching the early industrial dance scene with a softer sequential approach than most of his contemporaries. 'Matter' is a hermetic reflection about the relationship between perception, nature, science, technology and labor. This reissue comprises the entire 1991 'Matter' LP, as well a bonus 7" record containing 2 tracks never before released on vinyl. The vinyl is housed in a jacket featuring the photographic traces of a high-energy photon hitting a proton. Each LP includes a 2-sided insert with original album reviews, press clippings, liner notes by Atom and photos..

untitled / LP

Compilation/reissue of the UK underground duo Laugh Clown Laugh. Composed of Sam Findlay and Dominic O'Brien, Laugh Clown Laugh hailed from the northeast Somerset town of Frome (100 miles west of London). Though the band only had 1 actual released track ("Feel So Young" featured on a 1984 101International 2LP comp), the duo recorded many more tracks literally in their living room in the early 80's. Inspired by early 80's synth-pop, they were able to purchase early Sequential Circuits and Korg synths as well as a TR606. What resulted from these home recordings on tape are some of the most young at heart, sincere, and amazing synth-pop the world has never heard. Due to lack of publicity/etc, these recordings sadly have been stored away until recently as a cult following has mounted after the attention and correspondence with Crispy Nuggets blog. In addition to the driving, infectious earworm that is "Feel So Young" (and the dub version), this LP is composed of 10 never before heard songs from those home recordings. All tracks have been transferred and restored from the original tapes with dazzling results. This LP will certainly appeal to fans of earliest Human League, Oppenheimer Analysis, and earliest Vince Clarke era Depeche Mode (but even more sparse). Presented on 180gr transparent orange high-quality vinyl in a limited edition. Bonus insert included as well with liner notes by Kurt B. Reighley and other tidbits. Fantastic release !

auto-reverse / 2x12"

A killer selection of ice cold motorized Detroit electro tracks by Le Car! After Le Car had been dismantled and the parts put in storage years ago we have a final ride with Le Car that has been reassembled for the occasion. The '96-'97 Detroit electro project by Adam Lee Miller (later known for his ADULT. project) and Ian Clarke (known for his Perspects project) show another side of the Detroit music scene. The duo met at Art School and had a shared love for electronic music and conceptual art. This resulted in their own little vehicle named Le Car that had a test drive for 4 ep's. The 'Auto-Fuel EP', 'Auto-Graph EP', 'Automatic' and the final 'Auto-Motif EP' of which 3 came out on Miller's Detroit label Monoplaza Record Company (a sublabel of Ersatz Audio). The connection between Rotterdam/The Hague and Detroit was quickly made those days when a new generation of producers came up (including producers such as DBX, Ectomorph and Drexciya) which resulted in collaborations and releases of ADULT., Perspects and also Drexciya. These releases by Le Car are the conceptual link between the Detroit techno scene and the heritage of the automotive city that effected everything thats been going on in the city for the last 4-5 decades. Inspired by the electronic musical pioneers that came to rise during the decline of the city which was in full effect during the 80's. Robots replacing humans in the factories, Electronic machines replacing musical instruments. Where the warm Motown sound could stand for the rise of the city, the city's electro/techno movement which appeared in all layers of the population can be seen as the (beautiful) reflection of the city's downfall with Le Car as one understated and important part. Now, 20 years after their 1st test drive we celebrate the last ride of Le Car on Clone Classic Cuts. Enjoy the ride! (ltd edition 2lp album)

LCN (aka Le Chocolat Noir) was present on the 'Noblesse Oblige' compilation (Gooiland 23) with a sweaty EBM influenced track. On this 4-track ep you can expect dark and cold elektro sounds. It is reminiscent of Invasion Planète and Kommando 6 output but with a cleaner and more modern sound. Still if you like(d) these early 2000's elektro sounds you will love this too! This ep follows up on the steady stream of releases LCN has been putting out lately. Among them on labels as Frigio Records and Return To Disorder, but this is probably his most dark and freaked out release up till now... Edition of 200 copies, screen printed sleeve !

consumer behaviour

21.99€

Artist : Le Cliche 

Label : Medical Records LLC 

consumer behaviour / LP

Medical Records presents the debut full-length release of Le Cliché, entitled 'Consumer Behaviour'. The album consists of 11 songs influenced largely by European synth-pop of the late 70's and early 80's (The Human League, John Foxx, OMD, early Depeche Mode, Japan, Gary Numan, Propaganda and Kraftwerk). More recent influences include the 1st album by Miss Kittin & The Hacker, Tiga, Benny Benassi, Erlend Øye and Ladytron. The music might be best described as minimal synth, synth-pop, postmodernist, cold assembly line with neo consumerist themes, based on the use of synth sequences and virtual voices. The inspiration for the subject matter of the songs comes from the many inconsistencies and ironies of the current consumer and consumption centered society in which we live. Le Cliché is the synth project of Gerard Ryan, native of Limerick (Ireland), Associate Professor of marketing and consumer behaviour at the Rovira I Virgili University in Spain and a Visiting Fellow at Cornell University, New York. Le Cliché was initially established in 1984 when Ryan was a teenager, but later the project was put on hiatus in favour of a career in academia. Le Cliché was re-ignited in 2012, motivated by the appearance of new music from the 80's that was being rediscovered and released by a host of relatively small but hugely motivated new record labels including Medical Records, and the like (and groups such as Dark Day, Mathematiques Modernes, Bal Paré, Ceramic Hello, and Experimental Products). When in 2012 the track "Waiting On The Internet" emerged as a reflection of Ryan's doctoral research on the frustrations and anxieties experienced by consumers when interacting with computer technology in the use of the Internet, the Le Cliché project was revived. Since then the main source of inspiration has come from Ryan's work as an academic, taking a critical view of the inconsistencies of the marketing centered approach to business and the all-pervasive reach of marketing activities in our daily lives as consumers (rather than citizens). All of the tracks on the album are from the 2012-2014 period except for "I Woke Up This Morning (like I always do)", which is a reimagining of a 1984 demo of the track entitled "I Dreamt I Was Dead". 2 tracks on the album reflect on the everyday mundane, often drab, act of waiting in line, whether in situ, on the phone or on the Internet ("Thank You For Holding" & "Waiting On The Internet"). "Production Line", is the mostly instrumental opening track to the album which clearly displays its Kraftwerkian influences. "Production Line" reflects on the so-called sweatshops that produce many of our most beloved brands but often fail to adequately compensate workers for their labour or protect basic worker rights. It contemplates the fact that that most of these workers will never be able to afford the designer brands they churn out day after day in overcrowded factories and often-deplorable conditions. Other tracks deal with topics which are more personal and intimate such as Aquaphobia and Ventolin, thus giving some indication of the personality behind the music. The album was written and recorded in Catalonia, Spain (2012-13) and during the harsh winter of 2013-14 in frozen upstate New York, USA. The Le Cliché sound is attained by combining a mix of old and new technologies. In this sense, both analogue and virtual instruments are employed thus obtaining a unique mix of old and new technologies. The LP is presented on high-quality 180gr heavyweight colored white vinyl and features a bonus LP insert.

grandeur et decadence / 7"

Le Syndicat Electronique is the Solo project of A// of Invasion Planete Records from France. This 4-Track-7“EP is a bit darker, than some other records.The music transports feelings and atmospheres of early 80's electro-industrial bands. The sound is a bit monotonous as an assembly line in a factory with some influences of projects and bands like Notstandskomitee and Kraftwerk. In our very personal opinion, this is one of the best LSE releases, we know by now. It spreads some kind of discomfort and what else makes a record good, than activating feelings of the listener ? The record from Berlin´s Disorder Records comes in a limited edition of 300 copies, blue vinyl ! Run to it !!

erring and errant

14.29€

Artist : Le Travo 

Label : Dark Entries 

erring and errant / LP

Lè Travo is the brainchild of Patrick Bollen from Tienen, Belgium. As a teenager in the early 80's, Patrick would visit DeAtelier, the infamous coldwave/gothic club in Leuven. He would be inspired by Joy Division and other Factory releases, The Danse Society and Cocteau Twins. He gathered a some session musicians and a female backup vocalist. They recorded with live drums, TR-808 drum machine, Roland JX3P synthesizer, electric guitar and bass. Eventually Patrick bought a Greengate DE-3 sampler, using the brains of an Apple 2E with a keyboard bolted onto it. He crafted loops made from a deconstructed upright piano, hitting the strings directly with a drum stick. Lè Travo made their 1st appearance on a split LP with Fred A in 1984. 'Erring And Errant' is their debut 7 song LP originally released in 1985. For the reissue 3 bonus songs from the split LP have been added. The songs are coldwave in the vein of Weimar Gesang, Opera Multi Steel, and Clan of Xymox. Guitar, bass and sample interplay with piano and synthesizers with dark and forbidding crescendos in the fast numbers, and elegaic melancholy in the slow tracks. The vocals are delivered with a sense of urgency, while the lyrics are inspired by avant-garde movements such as futurism and constructivism, as well as science fiction and existentialism. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy jacket with original artwork as well as a fold-out poster with lyrics and photos. Lè Travo is derived from French word 'les travaux', which means : the works, a fitting name for this compilation of lost music from the Belgian underground..

teenage demos

13.99€

Artist : Leaether Strip 

Label : Dark Entries 

teenage demos / LP

Leæther Strip is the solo-project of Danish electronic industrial artist Claus Larsen. Discovered by the German techno artist and producer Talla 2XLC, Leaether Strip quickly built a buzz as one of the most exciting emerging acts in Europe in the early 90's. 'Teenage Demos' is a collection of Claus Larsen's earliest recordings. 9 demo songs recorded between 1982 and 1986 never before released on vinyl. Influenced by Fad Gadget, Depeche Mode and Jean Michel Jarre, Claus began creating synth-pop melodies at age 14. Though the melodies were catchy and upbeat they had a hidden melancholy because Claus knew that he was different than others. "Dreaming" was his 1st attempt to come out to himself as a queer kid. Lyrically the songs reflected what was going on in his head: youth, hope and dreams. Claus used a simple set up: Moog Prodigy, Yamaha drum machine, delay pedal and spring reverb. He would record the bass and drums on a double cassette recorder, without midi, sequencers or preset sounds. By 1985, Claus composed instrumental songs as the final 3 tracks on this album illustrate. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy jacket with original photograph of a 15-year old Claus as well as an insert with lyrics, photos and an interview. 'Teenage Demos' is a sneak peak into the world of early, emotionally intense foundations of Leæther Strip. Wonderful !!

besides the abyss

besides the abyss / LP

Lebanon Hanover are among the most beloved protagonists of Fabrika. This is their 1st studio album and the forth to be released in an extraordinarily creative period of almost 3 years. This album reflects a process of musical maturing and self-knowledge, though inward-looking and intimate, it has no difficulties entering deep into the emotional world of the listener. Dominated by the voice of Larissa Iceglass, which embraces us like an unknown warmth coming straight from the blackest abyss, the elegance of the guitar parts, the sad bass and synthesizer melodies, the poetic tenderness of the lyrics, this album is of a unique hopeful but gloomy romantic. Besides the abyss is gorgeous and timeless. Lebanon Hanover hold the key to our soul as we all walk a path of failures and of heights. Their way of giving new breath to old structures, of expressing a universal emotion, is almost addictive and we consider ourselves lucky not having to live long without their music. The album consists of 10 new recordings. It has been written and performed by Larissa Iceglass & William Maybelline in Athens, may 2013. For the 1st time a guest musician goes with Lebanon Hanover in the studio, playing for the Moor the most sorrow-filled saxophone you've ever heard. Chris Manolitsis is the man behind the production, mixing and mastering, giving the final touch, intensifying these tracks exactly the way he did it in the early 80's. Vinyl comes with a unique album cover, lyrics and a free download code ;)

babes of the 80s / 12"

It has been a year since Lebanon Hanover showed us a place 'Besides The Abyss', by releasing on Fabrika their brilliant 4th studio album. As the withdrawal symptoms we feel due to our addiction to this band started to threaten our existence, they return to offer us once again their heart & soul in the form of a 12" maxi-single. Feelings close to misanthropy, disappointment, lack of communication and trust in social and personal relationships are the ingredients of this record, which combined with the most wonderful melodies and the heavenly voices of Larissa and William, evoke a unique tenderness that overshadows the sadness, a power that takes us by the hand and leads us to the dancefloor. And this is the magic power of Lebanon Hanover, a band with a strong message towards/against society, that makes us want to dance to its melancholy. 'The Babes Of The 80s' change both their musical and aesthetical style and LH surprise us once again by showing us a new aspect of their artistic creation. An ideal image of the bands elegance in full color, expressed by the wonderful cover picture of Thomas Amras and the descent to the daily routine on the back cover, are two strongly opposite components, which perfectly visualize the music. And the music itself comes with a unique totally synthesized power towards us, full of emotion, without any bass and guitar parts. And the surprise won't stop. 2 exceptional collaborations are to be found on this record. 2 great artists are remixing the self-titled track offering us another point of view and even more acoustic pleasure. She past away, a beloved band of the Fabrika family, join for the 1st time forces with Lebanon Hanover, in a dark, intimate remix of the "Babes". But also the cult italo-synth artist Tobias Bernstrup contributes with a sensual and extremely danceable mix to this release..

"Robot Is Systematic" is already a classic cut, you can hear why as the first vintage synths drop in with a classic analogue vibe, almost hi-nrg but with some brilliant noises from the lead synths, while a female vocal moves from speaking melodies and off to early vocoder effects.

Falling into the sub-genre known as "cold wave", this 7" is an absolutely gorgeous re-interpretation of what 80's goth was. The lyrics are dark. They croon mournfully over minimal guitar and sparse, simple touches of synths and drums. It really sounds like this trio were born of that post-punk scene that spawned such morbid romantics as Siouxsie, Robert Smith and Peter Murphy. Although I've made a lot of references to things already firmly established with worn welcomes, there's something about the warmth of vocals and the minimalism of the guitar that makes it feel like a new take on the old. Whaoh !!

may / 12"

Following up their excellent Wierd Records debut LP 'Dust On Common' & a limited European split-12", Led Er Est return with a new 12"ep, the aptly named 'May', their 2nd release on Captured Tracks. The trio describe the record as a collection of theme-based songs, almost like a dark sci-fi film soundtrack. The songs were written at various points some were written on the long drives over their last European tour. Side A opens with the dancefloor friendly "Lonsome XOXO", a song about a girl obsessed with death, while "Plants" contains a cosmic disco bassline and use of 12-string guitar, showing their influences fall outside the narrow margins of electronic music. This is further evidenced by "Madi La Lune" an ode to British underground songwriter Bill Fay. Side B gets darker and heavier with the apocalyptic sci-fi synth punk opener "Opto 5". This mood continues into "May" and ends with the instrumental brain melter "Drosophilia Melanogaster". Fantastic release !

Cool coldwave LP working within tight parameters but with stylistic agility making for an engagingly dramatic and varied session. Led Er Est emerged from a series of jam sessions that core members Shawn O'Sullivan and Sam De La Rosa started having in early 2007, using bass guitar, some cheap drum machines, and synths. They were inspired to record music largely by 70's synth prog, and 80's lo-fi electronic and industrial music. Here on this LP, they create a thick wall of atmospheric soundscapes using vintage analog recording devices, samplers, and synths using sci-fi soundtracks and cold wave as reference points. Excellent !

Led Er Est's "Fingers Curling Up" is an epic pop track, owing as much to guitar-wave bands as to the minimal synth canon. S.S.P.S (Secret Servants of the Private Sector, aka Jon Porkchop from Excepter) mines even bleaker terrain with the sprawling aggro industrial nightmare "Sweet Children". Both tracks mixed by Veronica Vasicka from Minimal Wave. Limited edition of 500 copies with hand-made silkscreened glow in the dark covers !

sayonara (don't stop) / 12"

Lee Marrow (aka Francesco Bontempi) was a super Italian Dj born in 1957 who started his musical history as a drummer in 1970. In 1985 he launched his 1st record "Sayonara" with very little success. Some years later he topped all European charts with singles like "Pain", "Do You Want Me", "Movin'" and "To Go Crazy".. Underrated italo-disco..

Label : Dark Entries 

gallop / LP

Λένα Πλάτωνος (Lena Platonos) is a Greek musician, pianist and music composer. One of the pioneers in the Greek electronic music scene of the 80's, she remains active until today. Lena was born on the island of Crete and grew up in Athens. She began learning how to play the piano at the age of 2 and became a professional pianist before turning 18. Soon afterwards, she received a scholarship and studied in Vienna and Berlin where she was exposed to jazz, rock and Middle Eastern music. She permanently returned to Greece in the late 70's and began working with the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation. Her debut album was released in 1981 and marked a innovative change in Greek music by featuring the strong use of synthesizers, which Platonos had begun to experiment with."Γκάλοπ" ("Gallop") was Lena Platonos' 2nd record that she solely composed, produced and sang. The record was released in 1985 and had a profound effect on the contemporary Greek music scene. "Gallop" was composed in the wake of a painful separation and took several months to complete. Lena says, 'It's a study in the mythology of urban population of the contemporary metropolis and also a gaze into the future life of it'. The album is made exclusively of analog synthesizers and heavily features the iconic Roland TR-808 drum machine. Lena's narrates each song, reciting her own surreal Greek poetry with unique skill. Lyrics deal with heartbreak, dreams, desires and the foresight of society's obsession with computers in our daily lives. "Gallop" is an album ahead of its time and Lena has an exceptional talent for conceiving issues that were to conquer Greek TV screens and newspapers many years later. The jacket is an exact replica of the 1985 edition featuring Lena's original collage. Each copy includes a 2-sided lavender 11"x11" insert with lyrics, photos and liner notes by Lena, filmmaker Antonis Boskoitis and fellow Greek musician Vassilikos. Prepare to become fully enveloped and entranced by this haunting masterpiece ;)

sun masks / LP

Λένα Πλάτωνος (Lena Platonos) is a Greek musician, pianist and music composer. One of the pioneers of Greek electronic music, she remains active today. Lena was born in Heraklion, Crete, and grew up in Athens. She began learning how to play the piano at the age of 2 and became a professional pianist before turning 18. Soon afterwards, she received a scholarship to study in the the Berlin and Vienna Academies , where she was exposed to jazz, rock and Middle Eastern music. She returned to Greece in the late 70's and began working with the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation. Released in 1984, 'Μάσκες Ηλίου' ('Sun Masks') was Lena Platonos' 1st record to feature her own words and vocals. All instruments were performed by Lena herself. 'Sun Masks' was inspired by Argentine writer, Julio Cortázar as well as the film 'The Wall' by Pink Floyd. "I began to reverse my thought process, to let melodies fade out, to turn to minimalism, to experiment on my Yamaha C60 synthesizer and a variety of 'boxes' which I used to change the sound of my voice as well as the sound of the synthesizer" says Lena. The album featured experiments with different sounds and a new batch of electronic equipment, such as the legendary Roland TR 808 drum machine. Lena narrates each song in deadpan fashion, skillfully reciting her surreal Greek poetry. Her lyrics deal with the futility of love, the gap of human relationships, consumerist alienation in the bourgeois lifestyle of the 80's. The jacket is an exact replica of the 1984 edition, featuring a photograph of Lena wearing sunglasses or 'sun masks'. Each copy includes a 2-sided 11"x11" insert with lyrics in both Greek with English, and liner notes by Lena.

low dig recording sessions / 12"

After 5 years of existence, more than 40 performances and 7 tracks on various compilations, it is finally time for the Lesbian Mouseclicks debut ep.. In 2005, their 1st song, "Borderline Label" was released on the compilation album, "5th Anniversary Compilation Vol.1" by the Berlin based label Das Drehmoment. After that time they have been released on several compilations. This resulted in the development and style they're now playing live and produce: retro 80's synth-pop sound mixed with raw electro tunes. Some call it new-rave, and others electro-pop. In short, not just one style and always adventurous... Tip !!
