shatter days / LP

Re-issue of the debut cassette by British duo Nagamatzu for the 1st time ever on vinyl. Expanded with 5 bonus tracks, 'Shatter Days' is a collection of 9 songs recorded between 1983 and 1988. Featuring Andrew Lagowski (SETI, Legion, Terror Against Terror) on synths, guitar, and programming and Stephen Jarvis (Pure Motorised Instinct, Terraform) on synths and bass with Andrew Fleck (synths, occasional vocals). Nagamatzu self-released their debut cassette 'Shatter Days' in 1983 after messing around with old tape machines, drum boxes and effects. They cite their early influences as SPK, Cabaret Voltaire and Joy Division. All the songs were recorded onto a TEAC reel to reel in the dining room at Andrew's parents' house. Some of the backing rhythms and sequencers were recorded 1st and then the band played along live during overdubs. These instrumentals combine stuttering bass, guitar bursts and funeral keyboards draped over a dragging drum machine beat, calling to mind Clock DVA, early New Order or Cocteau Twins. Their sound is full of complex rhythm patterns and dark electronics. On the flip side of this reissue are 5 tracks featuring contributions to international compilations ('If God Had Meant Us To Dance He'd Have Given Us Legs', 'Three Minute Symphony, Life At The Top' and 'Total Recess 3') plus a previously unreleased song. The vinyl comes housed in jacket silver and black offset printed jacket featuring the Nagamatzu symbol from the 'Shatter Days' cassette. Each LP includes a 8-page booklet full of photos, reviews and an interview with the band from 1983. Finally rescued from the UK Diy cassette underground and restored, 'Shatter Days' presents a band at their productive beginnings..

above this noise / LP

Nagamatzu were the British duo of Andrew Lagowski (SETI, Legion, Terror Against Terror) on synths, guitar, and programming and Stephen Jarvis (Pure Motorised Instinct, Terraform) on synths and bass. Formed in 1982 after messing around with old tape machines and drum boxes, making numerous contributions to international compilations and erratically releasing their own cassettes. Their name comes from a character in JG Ballard's 'Atrocity Exhibition' and their music reflects his influence. Nagamatzu self-released their debut cassette 'Shatter Days' in 1983 after messing around with old tape machines, drum boxes and effects. 'Above This Noise' is a compilation of 9 songs recorded in the period between the release of 'Sacred Islands Of The Mad' in 1986 and 'Igniting The Corpse' in 1991. It gathers tracks which surfaced on some of the international compilation cassette releases that the band were invited to contribute to in the 80's as well as some previously unreleased songs. The band's working method was for Andrew to 1st record a backing track, usually rhythm, sequence, samples. Then both members would layer more electronics, samples, guitar and bass over the top, recording the whole piece in one take. These instrumentals combine stuttering bass, guitar bursts and funeral keyboards draped over a dragging drum machine beat, calling to mind Clock DVA, early New Order or Cocteau Twins. Their sound is full of complex rhythm patterns and dark electronics. The vinyl comes housed in jacket silver and black designed by Eloise Leigh. Each LP includes a fold out poster with liner notes by Stephen Jarvis and an early gig flyer. Finally rescued from the UK DiY cassette underground and restored, 'Above This Noise' presents 9 Nagamaztu tracks for the 1st time ever on vinyl.

Label : Treue Um Treue 

from diy with love / LP

1st official vinyl release of the now defunct Croatian duo Narrow. Born in the late 90's, Narrow retired last year after over a decade of sonic excursions, and no less than 14 self-produced cassettes and CD-r's on their home-label Aside Thorns. Inspired by the collage and improvisation aesthetics of the likes of TG and Cabaret Voltaire, the music of Narrow is pure DIY, acknowledging cut’n’paste and lo-fi analogue sound processing as both a working method and a source of inspiration. No studio and hardly any computer here : the duo’s weapons of choice are a couple of tape decks, an old walkman and actual synths and effects with which they create a sound that takes us back to the heyday of tape-industrial. The 10 raw gems selected for this requiem are highly rhythmic, noise-informed minimal pieces, sometimes mutating into catchy electro songs which carry in them both post-punk echoes and angst-pop promises. Limited edition of 310 hand-numbered copies on white vinyl + insert !!

arms of departure / 12"

Natural Assembly is a new 2 piece dark synth-wave group from London, consisting of J.Cannon & Z.Zsigo. Since the 1st demo tape released in 2011, when the band was Jesse's solo project, a few limited cassettes have emerged. The sound is somehow similar to what Lust For Youth and Contrepoison offer, still these guys have developed their own version of what we like to call industrial synth-pop, with Arms of Departure being the 1st major work. Influenced by Front 242 and New Order, pounding drum machines sustain liquid synthesizer melodies and reverberated vocals beat until decay. 6 tunes to mark a personal debut that will be the perfect soundtrack for your last days on Earth..

rituals

16.99€

Artist : Neon 

Label : Spittle Records 

rituals / LP

From the beginning, the band’s music was perfectly aligned with continental trends; integrating the attitude of early post-punk with certain types of electronic music that had timidly begun popping up on the club circuit, and an aesthetic that was a cross between late romanticism and decadentism. Inimitable bands like Neon breathed new life into even the most disagreeable and angular rock'n'roll, flirting with war-like dance music, and creating musical scenarios that were unheard of up until that point, placing them in harmony with some of the most talked-about British and German bands of the time. After a string of 12"s and a 7", the band finally released their 1st lp "Rituals" (originally released in 1985). This crucial album, which unquestionably represented the band’s creative peak, has now been re-released by Spittle not merely for the sake of the album itself, but also as part of a wider campaign to document the Italian new-wave scene. The 8 tracks that make up this digitally remastered reissue represent one of the most original possible journeys into the Italian underground. Obsessively rhythmic, like a pagan ritual, with the vagueness and asperity of primordial rock'n'roll and an inkling of late 70's / early 80's electronica; a cultured dance, officiously contaminated by the sound of guitars that lead us on our journey. This 'return to the scene of the crime' is essential in the rediscovery of one of the most sober and adventurous breeds of Italian rock. Tip !!!

spam n space / CD

Neongrau is Oliver Gerling from Germany bringing us a wonderful mixture of 80’s influenced electronics and modernist minimal electro-pop. Gary Numan and John Foxx are mentioned as main influences and this is indeed evident throughout the tracks ! “Short”, for example, has a deep Foxx-ish feel to it. Also there’s a bit of electroclash (“E-Chicks Hero”). All in all, no drop-outs really (apart from a cover of Depeche Mode’s “Photographic” which is maybe a bit weak) and for us maybe the German counterpart to Fisherspooner (“Lunar Motel”). One of the best CD album of the last months !

Artist : Neu! 

Label : United Artists Records 

neu! 75 / LP

Formed by guitarist Michael Rother and percussionist Klaus Dinger, both veterans of Kraftwerk, 'Neu! 75' is their 3rd album and is a rather different album from the 2 previous ones. Much quieter and softer, the album downplays the rhythmic element and incorporates a stronger melodic element. The resulting atmosphere is almost pastoral, by their standards. Neu! used to be the dark side of cosmic music, but here they explore a lighter side of cosmic music. "Isi" is angelic music for piano, locomotive beat and Terry Riley-ain electronic dervishes. The trance in "Seeland" is due to both the minimalistic beat and the guitar's middle-eastern line, and the mixture sounds like the missing link between early Pink Floyd and early Brian Eno. The motorik beat returns in "E-Musik", but, again, the guitar and the keyboards dance on it with a gentle, melodic elegance. Neu! even speaks (or better, whispers) in "Leb's Wohl", a delicate sonata lulled by ocean waves that sounds like a slow-motion replay of a romantic ballad and abandons their trademark massive rhythms. "Hero" is a rock song, and an anthemic one, with strong echoes of the Stooges and the Rolling Stones. So is "After Eight". And they both predate punk-rock. Overall the album is a lot less experimental than the previous 2, but it may have helped insinuate Neu! into the mainstream.. Green vinyl reissue !

Some years ago an album by Dutch band Milligram Retreat was released on Enfant Terrible. The album got raving feedback from press and music enthusiasts. Sadly the project was short lived.. but straight after the project came to an end Maurice Hermes, the mastermind behind it, started his solo project called Neugeborene Nachtmusik. Now is the time to pour his debut album out over you. Residing in Berlin Neugeborene Nachtmusik has shaped his music more and more these past few years into an unique style of this own. Some results of this were displayed already on the various artists releases 'Exploitation', 'I Am Enfant Terrible' and 'Post-Everything'. This album is a pitch black experience, a shamanistic ritual and a dark trip which takes you by the hand and leads you beyond and back. You get served 6 long tracks with effective minimalism and trance indulging sounds. Influences from electro, techno, industrial, noise and (black) metal can be traced. The album is diverse but coherent in displaying the specific personal style of Neugeborene Nachtmusik.. Special artwork print, insert, limited edition of 200 copies!

Another masterpiece of early 80’s UK minimal electronics. Neural Circus were from Harrogate (UK), and they released only one 7”ep in 1980 on the Luggage labe; ultra rare piece of vinyl ! Not only the rareness, but of course, its amazing raw and pure analogue electronics made this a so sought-after record, therefore great that Mauerstadtmusik rereleased this great ep in remastered sound plus adding the originally intended artwork to the package. The whole ep will cause orgasmic states in those who love Transparent Illusion, Bern Balders or Dark Day. So, no discussion : a true classic limited to 500 copies, definitely a Must-Have...

Newclear Waves is Alessandro Adriani from Rome, Italy, and Opus Finis is Ramiro Jeancarlo (synths, composition) and Carlos E. Oni (lyrics, vocals) from Miami, USA, joining forces on Mannequin’s third but first vinyl release. Both projects work with analog machines only, with a Korg KR-55 drum machine triggering directly the bass synth. A-Side “Ruins” is pretty monotone with no change at all in the bass note, but as Alessandro once put it, he’s making minimal electronic music, hehe, alrighty then ! Anyway, there is a cold voice as from some industrial / hard electro bands and some brighter tones here and there, too. The KR-55 pattern lets memories to Snowy Red arise, but Alessandro is a bit more dark and nihilistic. Opus Finis present “Trying Times” which is a bit more versatile and playful. Pretty cool track similar to way Martial Canterel works. Nice release limited to 300 copies...

zombi holocaust / LP

'Zombi Holocaust' movie is another slice of Italian zombie craziness for the late 70's/early 80's. The film, released in 1979, was directed by Marino Girolami, and starred Italian zombie favorite Ian McCulloch. In contrast to the sleazy and gory action on the screen, the soundtrack of the maestro Nico Fidenco is a thing of beauty and great depth, with captivating musicianship on display. The soundtrack is a rich blend of electronic/synthesizer tracks, experimental electronics, soaring acoustic and orchestral numbers with tinges of Spaghetti Western soundtracks, frenetic drumming coupled with woodwind instruments, and chants and manipulated wordless vocals. This eclectic blend is skillfully woven together to create a soundtrack that is unique, richly textured, and one that can stand side by side with the best works of other great Italian soundtrack composers. The selection of the tracks was following a particular path, where dark synthesizers, drones and slow burning electronic beats have a voice in. It still sound totally modern, so it was totally natural for Mannequin boss Alessandro Adriani to rework "The Magic Is In Progress", now transformed in a whole B-side 10 minutes dancefloor acid/ebm ride. Limited edition of 500 copies on red vinyl. TIP!

Transedance was originally released as a limited 12" white label in 1981, finding favour on the dancefloors of Europe and New York City yet never really gained the wider exposure it richly deserved. Original copies of the GC1 pressing of "Transdance" still command slightly ridiculous prices so kudos to Domestica for this rather special presentation which features a previously unreleased demo cut "Life Up" on the flip.

transdance / 12"

All 4 mixes of "Transdance" by Night Moves as a tribute dedicated to the lives lost in the Oakland Ghost Ship fire on December 2, 2016. Night Moves was the brainchild of Michael Guihen, from South London. Inspired by seeing Tubeway Army perform on Top of the Pops in 1979 he placed an add to form a synth-based band in the NME. In November 1980 he was introduced to Denis Haines, formerly Gary Numan's keyboardist on the 'Telekon' album. Denis and Michael worked closely together, writing a number of backing tracks. One of these was the farewell song from Gary Numan to his band Tubeway Army, "Love Needs No Disguise". In exchange for this backing track, Denis gave Michael the studio time needed to develop "Transdance". The 1st version of "Transdance" was recorded in late Spring 1981 at Ridge Farm Studio in Surrey and within the week Michael had a recording deal with GC Recordings. This mix of "Transdance" was pressed onto a white label GC1 and was sent to clubs around Britain and Europe. In Summer 1981 he met John Davis (aka John Darc) also part West London's new romantic scene. They recorded the 2nd mix of "Transdance" at Matrix Studios in London early 1982, and John added the new bass line. This was titled 'U.K. Disco Mix' and released by GC Records. On this mix the backing vocals were sung by Eve Goddard, Adam Ant's ex-wife. In March 1983 Michael and John turned to New York's budding electro & hip-hop scenes to have Jay Burnett remix the 'New York Disco Mix'. Back in London, the duo disappeared into the cutting rooms at Utopia studios with Francis Usmar and emerged with the final dub edit 'Robot Rock'. All 3 later mixes were programmed with a Roland TR-808, some live drums, and one homemade handclap machine. "Transdance" was embraced by Chicago's WBMX, Hot Mix 5 and Ron Hardy as well in New York at Larry Levan's Paradise Garage and Tony Humphries' Club Zanzibar in New Jersey. It is considered a blueprint that traces the line from UK synth-pop to Chicago house and Detroit techno. Housed in the original jacket featuring a black and white photograph of 2 mannequins dancing set against a cantaloupe hue. Each copy includes a 2-sided 11" square insert with lyrics and drawings of all 36 victims of the Oakland Ghost Ship fire. Also included is a 6 page booklet with liner notes, original press kit sheets and photographs from the band's archive. 100% of all profits will be donated to the Oakland Fire Immediate Relief Fund.

new grave / LP

Born by members of hardcore bands Salvation and Mother Of Mercy, Night Sins is the aural proof that life does not walk so dark all over Europe alone. Emerging sometime around 2011 under the oppressive skies of Philadelphia, these overcast malcontents are fitly connected to a city engrossed in shadow-soaked vices and dilapidated architecture. Not to imply that there isn't a comforting sort of gloominess in this musical malaise as Night Sins frolic down a musical path originally cut by The Sisters of Mercy and Clan of Xymox, with enough hints of Pink Turns Blue, The Mission, and other extensions into 80's darkwave to produce memorable songwriting that stands on its own. Bass and drums punch through the mist thick as thieves, guitar lines circle like falcons overhead, minimal-synths street clean some of the residual dirt, and singer-songwriter Kyle Kimball's vocals confidently press through an intimate fog. There is a brilliant light in the midst of dimness, and Night Sins is carrying the torch. Comes on black vinyl with insert with band pics and lyrics.

"Freispiel" is a classic and fast typically German sounding minimal electronics tune in the vein of early Markus, Piefke & Pafke, Ti-Tho and the likes. Weird synth-sounds (like pin-ball machines), Casio VL-Tone, Roland TR-808 and brilliant minimalistic and propulsive bass-synth sequencer make this 7" a nice record for your collection. The B-side "Elvis" is unfortunately not worth mentioning or listening to (in my opinion). Limited edition and very rare !

Former Unit Moebius member Jan Duivenvoorden flies solo for this spaced out electro release from 2007. Eschewing the demands of the dancefloor in favour of a more cerebral approach, Nimoy starts with the spaced out synths of "We Are The Word" and the haunting electronic melodies of "1981". "Pigeon Is My Prey" sees Duivenvoorden give some concessions to Djs with low-slung rhythms and hissing percussion, while "The Orca Reunion" takes this approach a few steps farther with its low-slung acid and heavy claps. However, Nimoy sounds most assured when mining an introspective path and the melancholic synths of "Smoking" brings the listener back to its spaced out start. 2016 repress with basic artwork !

Nina Belief is Tushna from Miami (USA), and already known from being the female half of Ronin, but here recording solo. She has already appeared with "Android Emotions" on the "We’re Punch Addicted" compilation CD (Punch Records) and is now delighting the world with 5 more fantastic songs from the realms of the analog synth underground. Like the other usual suspects (the analog synth freaks from the US : Martial Canterel, Sleep Museum, Staccato Du Mal, etc..) she appears to only play original early 80's analog synthesizers and drum machines which gives this music much heart and soul, and authenticity. The music is cold and dark, due to the vocals some similarities to The Vyllies ("Exile Queen"), November Növelet, and also Anne Clark ("Ice In Air"). This is the 1st release on newly founded German label No Emb Blanc Records, actually a side label of Genetic Music. Well done, Tushna ;)

alice / LP

No need to present this cult Dutch duo from the 80's (Lidia Fiala & Peter Van Garderen) still active nowadays.. This new album 'Alice' contains 12 songs, which were composed during the past 2 years, but the lyrics partly date back to the 70's & 80's. Some of these songs were already performed on stage, some will premiere on forthcoming concerts and some will never be played live. This is because all Nine Circles lyrics deal with things that happened in Lidia's life and songs like "Alice Don't Jump" are too emotional to be sung on stage. The song "The Shade Killed Her" is about Lidia's experience with some people in the music business who nearly managed to destroy her love for the music, but "This Is The Rose" tells that it turned good account and those people did not succeed. Per-Anders & Lidia are tuned with their feelings, so when Per-Anders sings "Haunted By The Past", he gets the same feelings as Lidia when she wrote the lyrics, because they fit also to his life. This is with many songs; being kindred spirits they are able to make music like it is coming from one soul.. Handnumbered cover with UV matt varnish print. Contains inlay with lyrics and photos, 1 poster, 1 sticker and 2 different postcards.. TIP !!!

control I'm here / 12"

An other Classic EBM track from Nitzer Ebb (1987). It souds like "Let your Body Learn" with subsersive lyrics. A clear inspiration for Le Syndicat Electronique at that time. B-1 : uptempo track with a more punk inspiration. B-2 : 7" version. Great One !

An agressive "hymn" from 1988 by Nitzer Ebb, with Front 242 they are the resourceful creators of the EBM (Electronic Body Music) genre. "Let your Body Learn" is the perfect track to get a frenzied crowd. B-2 : Instrumental B-3 : Hardcore mix. A Must !

hearts and minds (mix hypersonic) / 12"

"Hearts and Minds" released by Nitzer Ebb in 1989 (their most prolific year), builds a compelling soundtrack that exorcises their own sense of despair. It still sounds incredibly modern. Thses tracks have been a huge source of influence for lots of current artists that we won't named :-) Run to this Plate !

shame redesign / 12"

This is one of the really good single of Nitzer Ebb released in 1989 on the UK Mute label. Always in their engaged and agressive EBM style but combined here with also a touch a minimal electro-pop, "Shame" gives a really interesting compromise. B-Side : "Backlash" has a slower beat and sounds quite like Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Effective Quality ep !

ebbhead / LP

Ebbhead finds the group bringing their new fascination with more traditional song approaches to greater heights. Douglas McCarthy's lyrics are much more of a story/narrative kind in this album than the endless commands of the past, while his voice, if still sometimes intentionally strained, shows much greater fluidity and range than before. Similarly, the killer arrangements show even more detail and variety. Good One !

Nitzer Ebb's classics getting remixed by Terence Fixmer & The Hacker. The Fixmer's version of "Let Your Body Learn" is more dance orientated, f-m style, so it’s kind of different from what Nitzer Ebb did. The Hacker's remix gives Nitzer Ebb's "Control I'm Here" a more smashy techno touch.. Fresh !

as is / 12"

"As Is" was an awesome ep that was released in 1991 and coincided with "Ebbhead" lp. "Family Man" is just taken from the album but the other tracks stand out as being some of the best non album tracks ever by Nitzer Ebb. "Come Alive" should have been included on "Ebbhead" and it should have been its own single and video. The lyrics, vocals and drumming on this track are some of the best I have ever heard. "Lovesick" and "Higher" also should have been included and I have no idea what prompted the band to make this seemingly strange and odd decision.. This was the last great release from Nitzer Ebb before they just lost it completely !

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.!

suicide commando / 12"

12" reissue of No More "Suicide Commando", one of the most influential singles that ever reach the underground surface in the past 35 years. Originally released in 1981 as a 7" single, and subsequently reprinted in 1984 as a 12" single with a different tracklist on the B-Side, the single was in the following years spreading internationally regardless of genres and scenes. A couple of years after these Germans recorded this, it spread like a virus to become a cult classic. The virus is still spreading to this day. No More were founded by Andy A. Schwarz (vocals, guitar, bass), Tina Sanudakura (synthesizers), Christian Darc (drums, vocals) and Thomas Welz (bass, vocals) in Kiel, a seaside town in the northern part of Germany. The 7" ep 'Too Late' was the 1st release in 1980 and was recorded in a small laundry-room with a 4-track TEAC (the ep was reviewed in the German SOUNDS-magazine as 'strangely, archaic music, brute sound that seems to be recorded with a purposely damaged 4-track'). After the departure of Thomas Welz at the end of 1980, No More worked as a trio until the end of 1983. During that period the band recorded the song "Suicide Commando", basically their biggest success. In the 90's the song entered the techno and electro scene, when it was remixed by Dj Hell and Echopark (Moguai & Torsten Stenzel). A minimal electro classic, highly recommended in a collectible limited edition of 500 copies. Exclusive for the Record Store Day 2015 ;)

a rose is a rose / LP+7"

No More are a band from Kiel, Germany, founded in the summer of 1979. Their music is rooted in early post-punk / no-wave. No More began as a quartet with Andy A. Schwarz (vocals, guitar, bass), Tina Sanudakura (synthesizers), Christian Darc (drums, vocals) and Thomas Welz (bass, vocals). They self-­released their debut 7" 4 song ep 'Too Late' in 1980. The ep was reviewed in the German 'Sounds' magazine as "strangely, archaic music, a brute sound that seems to be recorded with a purposely damaged 4­-track”. After the departure of Thomas Welz at the end of 1980, No More worked as a trio until the end of 1983. As a trio the band explored musical minimalism and experimented with sequencers, drum synthesizers and rhythm boxes. There were no studios involved in the recording process. All recordings were made in bunkers, laundry rooms, cellars and rehearsal rooms. In 1981 the band released their 2nd single "Suicide Commando". The song spread internationally over the following years and became the band's biggest success. In 1982 No More released the mini­-album 'A Rose Is A Rose' on 10", described by NME as "made by a trio of young Germans who appear to have fallen out of Lou Reed's 'Berlin' album". Songs on this mini­-LP convey the desolate and bleak attitude of German youth in the early 80's. This reissue compiles all 8 tracks from the mini­-LP, both tracks from the 'Suicide Commando' 7" plus 3 demos from 1982. As a bonus each LP includes the original 'Too Late' 7" ep remastered and housed in an exact copy of the original jacket. The jacket is a replica of the original 'A Rose Is A Rose' 10" artwork designed by Stefan Brose, resized for a 12" LP and laid out by Eloise Leigh. Each album includes an 11x14 double-­sided, fold­out poster insert with photos and lyrics. As Dj duo Optimo said of "Suicide Commando": 'A song that refuses to die. A couple of years after these Germans recorded this; it spread like a virus to become a cult classic. The virus is still spreading to this day".

No Unauthorized was a French band from Melun (south suburb of Paris) active between 1980 and early 90's. The band was omnipresent in the tape wave scene with almost 100 appearances on various labels like Bain Total, Insane Music , EE Tapes or V.I.S.A. Their music can be described as minimal synth-pop with smart silly French lyrics. Add an experimental Diy spirit and you have one of the most original French 80's band. Invasion is an 8 tracks tape album originally released in 1987 on Fraction Studio (home of Philippe Laurent and DZ Lectric) and is probably their most accomplished work. It captures all the personality and freedom of the group who had no taboo to ridicule any situation. Limited edition of 200 standard numbered copies with A4 insert. Splendid starting release for this new Camisole Rec. label ;)

Artist : Not Only Bones 

Label : Geheimnis Records 

untitled / LP

With its 3rd release, Geheimnis Records is getting into the deep waters of the alternative sound of the Greek 80's underground. Not Only Bones consisted of 2 persons : Yannis Raikos (music & vocals) and Philippe Mignon (lyrics & background ambiance). They self-released 2 cassette tapes back in 1984 and 1986, which were far ahead of their time, having a unique sound, mixing contemporary dark synth sounds with avant-garde and ambient elements. Probably, there's no other band of that era, that has improvised in such peculiar and out-of-the-ordinary sounds like Not Only Bones. Using mostly synthesizers and an EMS emulator, they've created a claustrophobic, obscure and gloomy atmosphere, where some melodies may create a fake optimistic environment, only for the lyrics to pull you back into a pessimistic reality. This Lp presents the 2st of the 2 cassette tapes from 1984. It's the debut (more raw and harsh) album, including 14 anti-conformist tracks. This 'sound-jigsaw book' was carefully remastered from the original tapes by Yannis Raikos himself, without the help of whom, this true music gem could have never been released. 315 hand-numbered copies release that comes with an ecological A4-size insert with the lyrics and the instruments used by the band, during the recording of the cassette tape, back in 1984. Whaoh!!

The new album shows a further development; the magical mixture continues: Mrs Arafna's unique vocal timbre, a beguilingly resigned performance full of melancholy, couched in deep black analogue electronics embossed with the characteristic Növeletic stamp. Fragile ghostly melodies, with weeping pad sounds together in tried and tested partnership, powered by driving bass figures and thrashing rhythms that strike sparks of divine light through the comfortless darkness of the present European condition. Let your soul be illuminated from this shining jewel of timeless synthesiser music, and thus experience 'The World In Devotion'.

commodified / 2x12"

Drexciyan spawn, NRSB-11 (aka Gerald Donald & Sherard Ingram) proceed their stunning debut 12" with this full album of dystopian Detroit electro. Now joined by Zwischenwelt's Penélope Martin and Popsimonova's Lana Jastrevski on vocals, Mssrs Dopplereffekt and Stingray have realised a near-perfect vision of 313 sonic fiction (easily one of the finest to emerge their broken but determinedly valiant home city in years). As with Jeff Mills' more recent, ambitious Axis projects melding speculative story-telling and cinematic composition, NRSB-11 evokes rich imagery with a mix of cryptic and poignant movie dialogue and a production style balancing rugged, super bass-heavy electro rhythm with bleakly romantic synth arrangements. But where Mills has his eyes turned to the skies, NRSB-11 extrapolates its inspiration from socio-economic reality, inferred by track titles such as "Consumer Programming", "Living Wage" and "Austerity". It's the soundtrack to a near future or even present where deserted streets are scanned by quadrotor sentinels and crenellated financial institutions are policed by hired security armies, manifesting a heightened state of tension in the EBM alert of "Globalization" and the over-caffeinated jit of "Shadow Corp", whilst the likes of "Dead Civilization" with its deeply pessimistic film samples and skulking groove, or the icily emotive "Bioethics" best reflect its unshakable feeling of paranoia and despair. A massive recommendation to all afro-futurists, Detroit fiends and sci-fi/sonic fiction freaks. Tip !!

Label : Dark Entries 

split / 12"

Reissue split ep of rare and out of print Detroit electro jams from Nu-Sound II Crew & Magnus II. Both were projects of mastermind Sam Anderson (aka Dj Maestro). Growing up on the westside of Detroit, Maestro joined the Marine Corps in 1979 and was turned on to electronic music. One of his fellow Marines was a Dj from Brooklyn who schooled Maestro on how to mix records, blending dance songs seamlessly. While stationed on base in california, he set up a Dj crew called Nu-Sounds and perfected his technical skills. He returned to Detroit in 1984 and auditioned for the electrifying Mojo on WJLB. It was there that he met the godfather of Techno, Juan Atkins, who introduced him to emerging new sounds of dance & party music. Juan showed him how to make and record music using a Roland 808 and 909, Linn Drum and a Boss DR-55 drum machine. In 1986 Maestro created a new alias for himself, Nu-Sound II Crew, by adding a roman numeral II to his former Dj crew name. That year he self-released his 1st 12" single 'The Speed Of Light' on Sound Wave Records. Only 500 copies were made and distributed by Juan Atkins' Metroplex Records. Influenced by Kraftwerk & Cybotron, Nu-Sound II Crew created fresh, fast, dark electro beats with tough drum machines and lyrics about traveling through outer space. A 2nd single was released that same year, "1001 Beats", a slower, deep and heavy vocoder track with guitar by Jerome Blackwell that riffs the 'Batman Theme' during the break. By the late 80's, Maestro was using different alias such as Sam a& Dave, Zetta, and Magnus II to make it look like a lot of artists were on his new label Steppin' Forward Records. Magnus II was named after guitarist Jeff Magnus who plays on the sole 12″ single from the project 'Roctronic / Space Age' released in 1993. For this EP reissue, all 3 original mixes of "Space Age" are included: LP version, dub, and remix. "Space Age" blends EBM rhythms with tough drum machine beats to create an electro hybrid somewhere between Belgium and Detroit. Each copy includes a post card with a photo of the Nu Sounds crew DJing in 1984..

19.99€

Artist : Null And Void 

Label : Medical Records LLC 

happiness and contempt / LP

Very special double A side reissue of Fullerton, CA band Null And Void. Null And Void recorded 3 albums (1980's 'Happiness And Contempt' , 1982's 'Montage Morte' and a 3rd in 2012). Both of the 80's LPs have relatively short playtimes, so we have decided to reissue both in their entirety on each side of this reissue. Hailing from a very diverse musical scene, Null And Void forged their own sound fusing elements of new-wave, post-punk, cabaret and less characterized roots. Both of the LPs have gone long out of print and have become collectible with the resurgence and interest in post-punk and new-wave. Different from the often colder synth and wave scene, Null And Void headed into a more punk sound with heavier overtones and quirky hooks. The opening track "All The Old Humans" displays poignant synth lines before the track takes off into a total rock anthem. "Un Sedatif Ce Soir" is a standout track on the 1st album with twists and turns chock full of smoldering synth lines, jerking rhythms, and other surprises. The 2nd album 'Montage Morte' displays the evolution of the band just 2 years later after the debut. A slightly different mood overall, it has a more DiY home recorded feel. The opener "Motorcycle Song" is very catchy and tends to keep the listener humming it their mind for days to come. "Japanese Forest" is a gorgeous simple number with atmospheric soundscapes coated in melancholy vocals and texture. This LP will appeal to fans of early post-punk / wave hybrids and other unclassifiable early 80's acts that defined this wonderful 'scene'. Contains bonus insert with multiple writings and reflections by band members, friends, and the like. Presented on high quality 180gr blue vinyl.

untitled / LP

Hailing from the ashes of Phoenix legends of The Red Squares, after their disbanding in the winter of 1983, Sonic Mike Stephens (lead vocals and guitar) and the other guitarist and keyboard player Roger Lee Chavous decided to start another band. They met bass player Walter Charchuck, and than started kicking around a crazy idea of combing country with synth-punk material using a shitty drum machine. Greg David, the drummer, combined both drum machine and electronic drums. The plan was to dress like a new age cowboys, as all of them were from Arizona. Unlike some of the local Rock groups, Nuvo West took a decidedly different approach to their style of playing. Art galleries like the Awun House, hosted basement parties with the band that people were taking notice of. Opening for everyone from the Del Fuegos to buddies Rank N File, Nuvo worked their tails off. Enter buddy/studio wiz, Fred North. Using Sonic Mike's practice studio, Fred set up his Tascam 4 track and recorded the now sought after 'Scary' ep. Included on the record were original songs written by Fred with a very heavy western influence, aka Apache and originals written by Sonic and Wally. Debuting the ep at a trendy 'Alternative' club in Scottsdale, the band combined fence post props with several tvs playing homemade videos, including violent car crashes and porn. The audience loved it. The ep sold well locally, and the boys went out to tour in a limited fashion. In 1984, the band recorded their biggest album to date, 'Twankin', a word the band loved. Fantastic repress of the sought after 'Scary' LP ;)

At first O.R.D.U.C. was a band founded in 1971 wich wanted to play a mixture of Frank Zappa’s and Pink Floyd’s music. But after the initial members had left, the founder Nico Selen decided to go on an experimental music project. The songs from this album were taken from the original cassette-album released in 1981. You can get here the original and unplayed copies of this wonderful minimal-pop and weird album. Not to be missed...

107 / LP

After the ultra limited 7" "Do", O.R.D.U.C. came up with this great new album. About half of the tracks on this record are from 1980-81 but were finished more recently. The style is still typical O.R.D.U.C.: weird pop, minimalistic electronics and soundscapes. If you like the cult album "Pink & Purple" from 1981, this new record will please you for sure.. ;)

Another nice little record by O.R.D.U.C. This time a compilation with some very old track (1979-1983).

Artist : Occidental White 

Label : OnderStroom Records 

progress through research / 7"

2 minimal synth-pop pearls 1st released on the compilation 'Walkin' After Midnight' in 1982. They're in the same vein as early 80's singles by Carol (Breakdown) and Rive Gauche (Friends Are Friends). Both tracks on the 7" are a delightful proof of the lively and creative music scene in Brussels during the early 80's, supported by labels such as Factory Benelux and Les Disques Crépuscule and the famous venue Plan K. Occidental White was founded at same time as Kaa Antilope, the extraordinary new wave band founded by Bernard Vranckx and Frédéric Walheer. Bernadette was the additional member and took care of the vocal part. The idea was to do 'pop' songs inspired by occidental white culture, which was the opposite to Kaa Antilope which was more focused on outside inspiration. Edition of 300 copies !

Label : Brouillard Definitif 

untitled / 7"

After a CD anthology released few years ago, Odessa is back 30 years after its mythical 1st release, with 2 unreleased and unsuspected tracks taking us back to 1983. Despite a short and fast existence (no more than 3 years), few tracks (about 15 or so) and fewer gigs, with an official discography reduced to a mere 7" back in 1982, this French band quickly reached a cult aura that remained exhaustless, as testified by the ongoing generational process of painful hours that they inflict. Limited to 300 copies.

Artist : OGI 

Label : Medical Records LLC 

untitled / LP

Originally released in 1980 on EMI France, the OGI Lp is the work of Hungarian-born Peter Ogi. He obtained formal education in music composition at the Budapest Music Academy and quickly thereafter formed the very early Hungarian punk outfit, the Spions. Though never documented on tape, the Spions were considered very important in the Hungarian music scene. In the late 70's, Peter began travelling back and forth between Paris and London where he worked together with legendary producer of the Sex Pistols, Malcolm McLaren. Their collaboration was integral to the creation of the OGI Lp. It was recorded in Autumn 1980. The album was composed by Peter Ogi with lyrics written by Malcolm McLaren on over half of the tracks. Unfortunately, the record was criminally overlooked most likely due to it's French-only release. It is now being reintroduced for the 1st time in over 30 years. The Lp is a phenomenal creation of synthesized pop. The album's opener "King Kong's Fear" creates the mood with minimal synth leanings and unusual hooks that set the stage for an adventurous slide down the synthesized rabbit-hole. The 2nd cut "Resist Dance" was also a 7" single and is a standout track of infectious catchiness. "She, Wolf, Woof!" is a very interesting and dramatic piece that is obviously different from contemporary synth-pop from the era. The namesake track, "O.G.I." is a tempo-shifting cabaret-style ditty that warns you 'The OGI is watching you!'. This record is a totally original bombastic work of synth-pop art created by a uniquely talented artist. Since this record, Peter Ogi has been active in a wide spectrum of styles and genres, but the OGI Lp remains his sole opus of synth art-punk. For fans and devotees of early Fad Gadget, Daniel Miller, Malcolm McLaren sole efforts, and new-wave of the minimal varieties. Presented on high-quality 180gm magenta vinyl in a hand-numbered limited edition of 650 copies. Huge !!
