stations / absorptions / LP+CD

'Stations/Absorptions' is a comprehensive LP+CD set by Paul Chambers hailing from the UK and being known for his contribution of the 2 stunning tracks "Steering Solo" & "Take A Ticket" to the 'The Apprentices Dance' LP compilation from 1981 (on US Sounds Interesting Records label). Paul Chambers was truly a pioneer of dark minimal electronic music, starting to record already in 1978! It's nothing but pure analogue synthesizer bliss with lots of emotional undertones and the pure honesty of an independent diy artist. The Lp 'Stations' comprises 12 tracks including the majority of his rare vocal tracks (thus also including "Steering Solo" & "Take A Ticket"), recorded between 1979 and 1983, which mark milestones of the minimal electro wave genre while not knowing any boundaries. The CD "Absorptions" comprises instrumental and more experimental tracks recorded between 1978 & 1981, which can easily be lined up with the recordings especially by Chris Carter/Throbbing Gristle and The Human League from around the same time, while Paul also acknowledges the influence of Fad Gadget, John Foxx, early Roxy Music, Brian Eno, Gary Numan, The Normal, Genocide, Cabaret Voltaire, Suicide, Chrome, Cluster, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Thomas Leer and Robert Rental.

19 (extended version) / 12"

Another classic 80's electro anthem by Paul Hardcastle released in 1985. This artist enjoyed success on the underground dance scene in the early 80s before breaking into the mainstream with "19", an international smash which spent five weeks at number one in the UK. Superb evolutive electro break which alternates between sweety synth notes and more threatening bass lines in the vein of Cybotron. The lyrics oh this song which are also those of the movie denounces the average age of the U.S. soldiers during the war of Vietnam which was 19. "Dolores" and "Fly By Night" are more slow and cheezy electro synth pop tracks. Strong Release !!!

vortex

Artist : Paul Nelson 

Label : Medical Records LLC 

vortex / LP

1st reissue originating from the Pacific Northwest region of the USA in association with 2510 Records in Portland. MR-024 is the one and only release by Portland's Paul Nelson. 'Vortex' was released in 1981 on Paul's own Optiman Systems Inc imprint. Paul grew up around Portland and had a strong background in music and music theory. He built a PAIA synthesizer when he in junior high and developed a keen intuition into analog synthesis. Eventually he purchased a MiniMoog and was very influenced by Alan Parsons, ELP, and ENO. Armed with more gear as time went on, Paul was offered an opportunity to record his own album which led to the Recording Associates sessions during which 'Vortex' was born. The LP was also half-speed mastered at JVC Studios in CA. 1000 copies were originally pressed and self-distributed by Paul. The opening track "Automated Man" which also happens to be the only track with vocals, is a slab of genuine electro greatness with it's sharp synth hooks and vocoded vocals. The LP takes many twists and turns with many tracks of sequenced pulsations, electronic drums, and rhythms reminiscent of the sci-fi soundtracks mixed with a healthy dose of almost proggy space/cosmic disco crossed with later-age Tangerine Dream. "Vortex 2" is a perfect example of the above description with imagery of a Blade Runneresque chase scene meets Carpenter at his most upbeat. "Labyrinth" takes more a more relaxed synth odyssey approach with slower percussion and a spacier vibe overall. The rest of side 2 "Vortex 3-4-5" is a magnificent build up of ambient soundscapes that morph into a slow cosmic burner and fades out again into the darkness to close the LP. All tracks have been restored and remastered by Paul Nelson for this release. For many years this LP could be found in the PNW in record bins but over the last decade, it has been become quite rare which has led to it fetching rather high prices on the collector's market. For fans of library synth, sci-fi soundtracks, and other more sequenced electronic acts such as Tangerine Dream, Axxess, and minimal synth. This reissue is presented on high-quality 180gr splatter paint on opaque white vinyl. Features exact reproduction of the front and infamous back covers. Contains bonus insert with in-depth interview with Paul Nelson by Else Teicher. Limited edition.

clutz / 12"

The latest weapon from Dexter’s Klaxon imprint comes from the impossibly named Pauli Jylhankangas. 5 trax of strange retro electro disco cuts, ranging from the funked analogue of "Lie Low" with its squelchy acidic synths that funk around the beats creating a vintage feel while 70’s synths play a feelgood melody over the top. Another cut to check is the lazy 4/4 of "Turbo Fever" which offers an easy going and quite light melody over 80’s disco-fied drums, definitely not the Klaxon of Dexter and Fastgraph style, more a trip back to more innocent days of dance music. Check it boy !!

Artist : Peine Perdue 

Label : Medical Records LLC 

disparitions / LP

Medical Records returns to France (by way of Berlin) to present the 1st full length vinyl LP by contemporary artist Peine Perdue. Peine Perdue was born in 2010 from the meeting of Berlin-based artist and musician Stephane Argillet and Coco Gallo. Peine Perdue finds its inspiration in a certain geometry, poetry and clearness in music and art such displayed by the cold abstractions of XVIIIth century harpsichordists (Couperin, Pancrace Royer etc) to the graceful minimalism of Erik Satie, the sugar uncluttered pop of the 60's yéyé and finally to the arithmetic synth-pop of the early 80's. Among the artists and personalities that emulate their creativity are, among others, Delphine Seyrig, ESG, Elli & Jacno, Anna Akhmatova, William Onyeabor, Luisa Casati, André Cadere, Rainer Fassbinder or Robert Bresson. Construction, vertigo and symmetry with sensitivity but without sentimentality. Integrating the above references into a delicate mix with very personal and cinematic sensibility led by the obsessive sensuality of Coco's voice. Previous releases have included a cassette on Vocoder Tapes in 2012 followed by a 6 track vinyl EP on Kernkrach Records (Germany). Their 1st full length was a CDR in 2014 on Cold Beats Records. They have toured extensively as well in Europe in between recording sessions. The material on this LP is comprised of all new material written in late 2014. Despite it's articulate minimalism, the tracks are very compulsive and lend themselves seamlessly to the dancefloor as well as to the soundtrack to a dark late night rendezvous. Coco's vocals synergistically complements the fragile and perfect synth lines and beats. Standout tracks include "Surprise Partie", "Noyes" and "Cerceaux" though the entire record flows beautifully from track to track. This record will appeal to fans of the aforementioned legendary French synth pop acts and the like. Mastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage Studios, UK. Presented on high-quality 180gr heavyweight blue vinyl. Limited edition.

Artist : Pesteg Dred 

Label : Dark Entries 

years of struggle against the lies, the stupidity and the cowardice / LP

29-year old lost album now available for the first time on vinyl. "Years Of Struggle Against The Lies, The Stupidity And The Cowardice" was written, recorded and produced by a trio of Danish 18-year olds during a weekend in December 1981. Unable to pay for the recording session, the master tapes were confiscated and the album remained unreleased until the summer of 1985 where it was issued as a bonus cassette with the Danish art magazine Atlas. This is the 1st and only album from Pesteg Dred. The band combines dark rumbling basslines with austere guitar shrieks and the occasional cello/violin/autoharp to create the perfect tension of soft/loud synthesized post-punk. But what steals the spotlight of Martin Hall’s well-crafted production are the dynamic vocals of Inge Shannon who ranges from cold Teutonic monotone to shrill cacophony at times bringing to mind Nico, new romantic chanteuse Ronny or Simona Buja from Kirlian Camera. This landmark album could have fit perfectly on the 4AD or Factory Records roster alongside A Certain Ratio, Bauhaus or Joy Division. All tracks have been remastered from the original master tapes and include a printed interview with Martin Hall as well as a silk-screened image of the original reel to reel master tape. Limited to 500 hand-numbered copies, so grab one while you can...

walking in the neon

Artist : Peter Richard 

Label : Dark Entries 

walking in the neon / 12"

30th anniversary of the italo-disco club hit "Walking In The Neon". Peter Richard was the alias 1st adopted in 1979 by producer and vocalist Walter Beinat. His best known song was "Walking In The Neon", released as a maxi-single on Italian label Good Vibes in 1985. For this single Richard teamed up with the production duo of Gigi Farina and Franco Rago, best known for their projects Lectric Workers, Decadance, Expansives, and Wanexa. "Walking In The Neon" was written by Rago & Farina with help from Chuck Rolando, member of Italian disco group Passengers. The track's arrangement was done by Italian disco pioneer Celso Valli who wrote club classics for Macho, Azoto, Passengers and Tantra, to name a few. On the A-side is the 'Club' version, an uptempo classic that sounds like a dream encounter between mid-80's New Order and hi-NRG legends Patrick Cowley and Bobby Orlando. Clocking in at nearly 9 minutes, it is purely dancefloor oriented on an epic scale, with evolving hooks and melodies. The B-side features a shorter 'Dub' version with extended breaks and bass lines. Pressed on neon orange vinyl, as it was when originally released in 1985. Tip !

There is also a live version (1984), which is a little harsher and more monotonous, somewhat like early DAF. The B-side is filled with a twelve minutes long remix from 1983. Captain Berlin is a nice cult piece like you can expect from Kernkrach, limited to 500 copies !

the eepp / LP

Phantom Forth were the brother sister-in-law team of Paul Luker (guitar, bass, vocals), Debbie Luker (drums, guitar, vocals) and Lorraine Steele (keyboards, percussion, vocals). They formed in 1981 in Auckland, New Zealand. Early 1980, Paul had just returned from a nationwide poetry reading tour and bought a bass guitar. He would practice as his brother's house and Debbie suggested they form a band. Lorraine joined soon after. With a shared love of Young Marble Giants, Wire and Cabaret Voltaire they started to rehearse at LAB Studio. 'The EEPP' was recorded in 1983 within a few weeks at Progressive Music Studios. Slated for release in February 1984, the mini-album finally appeared in november on Flying Nun Records. It contained seven moody sketches of Auckland. Their sound blends cold wave guitars, drum-machine propelled post-punk with female vocals. The core recording set up was a Casiotone MT-40, Boss DR-55 Dr. Rhythm, Roland TR-606, bass, guitars and various effects pedals. Paul would EQ each string individually with the parametric, later the combination of chorus and slight delay was added. Lyrically Lorraine and Deb tackle relationships with boys turning into men, escapism, dreams, drugs and reality. Included with this reissue are 2 early demos recorded at LAB in 1982, made prior to Lorraine joining the band, plus a recording from the Flying Nun live compilation 'The Last Rumba'. The vinyl comes housed in sleeve with original artwork collage designed by Paul Lurker. Each LP includes a two-sided 8.5x11 poster with notes and photos.

untitled / 12"

Debut 12" ep from Phantom Love, a mysterious kosmische act from Southern Europe. Emerging from the majestic and fiercely sun-trapped lands of the Old Continent, Phantom Love takes you along a dazing journey through a spectral yet dreamy haze of spacey psychedelia. Drawing inspiration and guidance from the ever-revered mitt European and Mediterranean tradition of kraut and cosmic rock, Phantom Love manages to encapsulate and transcend the formulas normally associated with these genres. A retro-futuristic feast for the ears, a production that is equally analogue and digital, haunting and exotic, Phantom Love's debut is a sonic sculpture of obsessive arpeggios and reverb-drenched strings. Against this arcane melodic canvas, tribal and shape-shifting drums structures fight and discipline the liquid interplay and superimposition of cymbals and cowbells delays. Limited Edition of 300 copies with artwork by Giandomenico Carpentieri. Strongly recommended to fans of Brian Eno, Klaus Schulze, John Carpenter, Carter Tutti, Stellar Om Source, Harald Grosskopf, Tangerine Dream, Beak, Zombie Zombie..

Philippe Chany is a French songwriter, film music composer and producer from the town of Gap in the southeastern region of the Hautes-Alpes. He formed Love International with Philippe Krootchey and Fred Versailles in 1981 and released the #1 boogie disco hit single "Dance On The Groove (And Do The Funk)". The B-side of this single featured a cover of Dave Brubeck's "Unsquare Dance" released as a single in late 1981 credited solely to Chany. In 1983 Philippe went into Studio O.M. to record songs for his solo project. The album titled 'Rive Gauche' was released in 1983 by Polydor Records. Philippe was inspired by experimental film composers Michel Magne, Ennio Morricone, Lalo Schifrin. Songs are a fusion of Chanson synth-pop, experimental italo funk, majestic balearic disco and arabesque instrumentals. He enjoyed making blends, combining rhythms with scratches, utilizing a Roland TR-808, Jupiter 8 and various Akai samplers. All the songs are recited in French and English and revolve around themes of love and mysticism plus a passage read from Antonin Artaud's 1925 poem 'L'Ombilic Des Limbes'. Housed in an exact replica of the original jacket, which features a photo of Philippe by Jean-Baptiste Mondino on the front and a painting of him by Nadia Back on the back.

hot-bip / LP

Full length Lp by French mastermind Philippe Laurent. This album is entitled 'Hot-Bip', a pseudonym Laurent used throughout the 80s and 90s and also the title of his 1983 cassette on Fraction Studio. 'Hot-Bip' features tracks recorded between 1979-1988, most of which have either remained unreleased or only previously appeared on scarce 80's experimental cassette compilations. Laurent's music can be described as spacey synth-pop, containing much depth and range. It is edgy, political and pushes the limits, transforming his sound beyond one specific genre. Hints of classical influences as well as electro influences can be heard. 'Hot-Bip' showcases Laurent's best musical output from the 80's and includes some very avant-garde pieces from as early as 1979. A limited edition of 999 hand-numbered copies, this LP is pressed on 180 gram, translucent red vinyl and housed in a black and white matte printed heavyweight sleeve. Tip..!

mithra

12.69€

Artist : Philippe Laurent 

Label : Peripheral Minimal 

mithra / 12"

While a newcomer to the label, Laurent is an established multi-media artist well-known for his work in fields ranging from plastic arts and music to graphic and digital codes. He has been active in the electronic music scene for decades, first emerging from the French underground in the early 80's. However, in recent years, his music has been discovered by a whole new audience of appreciative listeners. This is due in large part to key reissues and new releases of Laurent's archival material, beginning with his popular 2011 full-length vinyl LP on US label Minimal Wave, which was followed by releases around the globe on labels such as Electric Voice, Girouette and Serendip. While Laurent historically has executed much of his musical production under the pseudonym Hot-Bip (a name also used as the title of a 1983 cassette release), the 'Mithra' ep is presented instead under his given name. The 4-song release, which is comprised entirely of new material from the present day, includes 2 different versions of the title track as well as 2 versions of "La Tentation De Saint Antoine". Defying genre-specific categorization, these songs incorporate influences from techno, electro and synth-pop while sounding starkly contemporary and capturing a beautiful subtlety of sound. Philippe's general approach to art is one of research, specifically in addressing perception of signs and symbols. In conjunction with this research, he has always remained open to new technologies, whether composing musical works or creating graphic designs. This tendency is on full display in the 'Mithra' ep, where complex electronic sound design creates a densely synthesized backdrop for hard-hitting, dancefloor-friendly beats. All of this is accompanied by unusual vocal additions (both human and otherworldly) that range from ethereal whispers to robotic, Kraftwerk-styled enunciations. With the 'Mithra' ep, Philippe Laurent has created resolutely original electronic music for modern times. Indeed, the ep reveals an artist with an incredible history working at the height of his impressive skills. Limited edition of 500 copies on grey solid-colored vinyl, with a sleeve designed by Laurent himself & Oleg Galay.

Along side the eps Phosphor have also produced 2 slow and haunting singles, "Numb" and "Influx".

I didn't know I loved you (till I saw you rock & roll) / 12"

Produced and organized by early hip-hop impresarios Arthur Baker and John Robie, Planet Patrol walked an intriguing line between electro and the classic Motown sound. The quintet of vocalists (led by Herb Jackson) only produced few tracks, but this one belongs to the few classic anthem of the oldschool electro-funk era.

the end / 2x7"

Talking about artfully existent sound-labyrinths within restlessly, inspired artistic minds. Inspired artistic minds which based on their deviation, properly exemplify the ambience of an era that was once under progress. Inspired minds that via their work leave an imprinted mark of a musical scene that was once under-formulation while it has long been established now. Plastic Dolls stood for one of those musical minds. They formed a discreetly significant group that substantially contributed to the Greek 80's underground new-wave sound. The original 7" single was released in 1984 through their own Violent Crime Records label; Plastic Dolls were an important act with a strong live appearance. Beautiful moments of an intense youth, when inspiration frequently occurred during a live show when the band played absolutely songs never to be re-performed and ultimately recorded. Fortunately for all music aficionados out there, apart from the new romantic electronic track "Don't Forget Me" and the intense dark wave song titled "The End" (both songs included in the foregoing sole release of the group and which re-appear in the present edition), there were additional musical syntheses included in a long-forgotten tape that was recorded almost 3 decades ago. "Feel Me Now" and "It's Just A Romantic Sound", 2 clearly straightforward new-wave romantic songs, suddenly see the light of day and reveal the direction to which the group was headed before it finally disbanded. 2 additional unreleased tracks which we hope that you'll enjoy as much as we do. Comes in a strong gatefold cover and in 500 hand-written copies. WTF** !!

red movies / LP

Singles collection by UK's Play as the 2nd in a series of crucial reissues from the Survival Records imprint. Play was made up of Wayne Kennedy & David Rome, and all of their output was released on Survival (home to Drinking Electricity, Hard Corps, and Richard Bone). David Rome previously had worked with the recently passed Martin Lloyd in the group Analysis (later evolved into Oppenheimer Analysis) as well as was the founding member of Drinking Electricity along with Anne-Marie Heighway. Play released 3 singles between 1982-1984, and a compilation LP 'Red Movies' in 1985 (which compiled a majority of the singles but not all). All of these singles are now out of print and collectable. The Medical Records reissue of 'Red Movies' is complete with 2 extra tracks not featured on the 1985 compilation LP including 3 remixes. Play can be best described as perfect moody synth-pop. The songs exude excellent synth work by both members as well as the sprinkled in jagged/angular guitar work by David Rome (so well illustrated on the Drinking Electricity output) reminiscent of UK post-punk. The songs also tend to lean towards new romantic at times but are more sparse yet dynamic. The LP features preserved original front cover art (of the UK version as the Japanese version was slightly different). Back cover art is slightly modified to include updated credits and additional photos of Wayne Kennedy. Pressed on high quality 180gr 'half & half' colored vinyl (blue and red) in a limited edition. Pffffeeewww!

What an amazing album this is ! Plus Instruments on this debut LP from 1981 is Truus de Groot from Holland with the drummer from Rhys Chatman's band and Lee Ranaldo, who played in the ensemble of Glenn Branca back then and a little later joined Sonic Youth. Musically this is minimal music but turned pop without loosing the edgy side of things. Maybe the missing link between Silver Apples and DAF ? True Classic!!

pity for the self or we'll teach you to dance / 12"

Controversial electro-wave band of the 80's. One of Belgiums most disputed groups, who are characterized by a huge productivity and a constant urge for change. Their intellectualist "wave" music (how else could you describe a group who names their Best Of "Existential Despair, Metaphysical Distress, Onthological Ungludation and Cosmic Meltdown") ensured them a small but stable following. Later on they evolved into more electronic and dance-oriented music, influenced by the underground success of the pioneer-band Front 242. Nice mini-album, EBM and new-beat orientated. Take some time to listen to it ;)

taste of candy / 7"

Poésie Noire was a great Belgian band. They won the Belgian rock contest Breekend in 1985. In the next year the group played support to Dead Can Dance and the Sisters of Mercy and also a lot of gigs on their own. From that point the saga continued... Originally the Poésie Noire had 7 members, but soon there were only 3, Johan Casters, Marianne Valvekens & Herman Gillis. On this 7", the band delivered us an imaginative stroll through cinematic music, where the keyboards gently peck at you and the rhythm flutters its eyelids...

This fantastic little 7" is not a mere reissue of Poème Electronique's one and only vinyl release from 1982: Anna Logue Records managed to track down the band's composer, who entirely remixed both songs, infusing them with new life and power... Neo-romantic-electronic-pop at its best. Highly recommended !

the echoes fade

Artist : Poeme Electronique 

Label : Anna Logue Records 

the echoes fade / 2x12"

Poeme Electronique was Dave Hewson (synthesisers, production), Sharon Abbott (lyrics, lead and backing vocals), Julie Ruler (backing vocals) and Les Hewson (bass), formed in 1980 by Dave Hewson in South London, UK, in 1980. This deluxe 2xlp vinyl album comprises 16 tracks of which 14 have never been published before. "The Echoes Fade" and "Voice" are the original versions taken off their original 7" from 1982. The album cannot be described other than being a masterpiece and one of the best-ever early 80's electro-pop records ever, and it surely has to be lined up with Rational Youth or Experimental Products’ cult albums. Truly, they had deserved to go on the successful path like Depeche Mode, OMD or Soft Cell, but fate was against them as it seems. Here you will find minimal electro-pop super hits like "Rendezvous", "She’s An Image", "Fragile", or "Dilemma"; hauntingly beautiful melancholic tracks like "A Mourner’s Lament", "This Night" or "It’s In The Atmosphere"; darkest minimal electronics on "Inside His Head"; and even more poppier tracks like "Follow". This record will hopefully be loved by any electronic music lover. So now it's up to you to give the band their final glory. Limited to 500 essential copies !

Label : Attractive! 

she's an image / 7"

Poème Electronique is Dave Hewson (synthesisers, production), Sharon Abbott (lyrics, lead and backing vocals), Julie Ruler (backing vocals), formed in 1980 in South London, UK. Dave was studying music and as a rare kind of student species he had a deep fascination for new-wave and electronic music thus also playing and recording electronic music ever since the late. For this latest 7" single release on the Attractive! label, Dave has remixed "She's An Image", which was originally featured on the album, here giving it a bit more 'drive' for optimal performance on the dancefloor. Lyrics-wise Sharon depicts how it felt like being a punk girl in the early 80's and the social problems arising from just trying to be different. On the flipside we find "Rubber Dollies", a previously unreleased track from their extensive early 80's archives that deals with sleazy sex shop/toys topics and comes along as a powerful electro-pop tune with a disco touch. Limited edition of 500 solid pink vinyl. Not to be missed!

music for fireworks / LP

In 1978, Philippe Genion started creating bands with all the friends that he was meeting in the train from Charleroi to Brussels, on the way to the rock concerts he went to several times per week. Many bands were created, among which Los Casios, The Presocratic Umbrellas, JTB, Confite Sonar... In the meantime, parallel to being involved in bands with other people, Genion, who had become S3 Evets, created 3 solo projects : A Finger Society, for pop electronic songs; The Penultimate Infinity, for arty projects, not only music but also painting, poems, writing and performances, and Polar Praxis for more serious and also industrial music. The only project that became prolific was Polar Praxis. In 1985, Polar Praxis released 'Musiques Pour Feux D'Artifice" on PIAS's Scarface sub-label, a 2 side/2 songs LP containing rythmic dance-like electronic music, which pre-figured the Dj's of the end of the 90's ! Later, Polar Praxis released a 2nd, and last, mini-album 'Fireworks', a collection of songs all titles "Music For Fireworks", repetitive music in the style and inspiration of Philip Glass and Steve Reich. Both were actually used as music for professional fireworks in Belgium and Europe. Fantastic re-issue limited to 500 copies..!

winter in polarius / 12"

6 tracker of old school sounds and simple yet effective grooves from Polarius (aka Legowelt), the opener "Nemo Airfield" has the classic nu groove synth stabs that have been used by everyone from Joey Beltram to Kenny Dope, creating a smooth reminder of the early days of house. The tracks all border either on the italo-disco tip favoured by Creme Organization or old-shool tributes, but the standouts are the lush Detroit style "On The Seaside" which is reminiscent of the brilliant Other People Place 12” on Clone with its deep and flowing pads and subtle almost trance like keys fading in and out, and the pure early New York vibe of "Up North" with its minimal yet intriguing melodies and simplified chords that play together in sync over the classic 909-esque beat. Check !

Sticking with the italo-disco flavour plus a tad of acid and some bass heavy 808 drums the 8 tracks compile the minimal yet varied work of Polarius. Check the opening acid gambit “Cash Money Boy" which dispenses with melody for a romp through the halcyon days of dance music, using just the essential ingredients to bring the old vibe out, strange voice samples and lo-fi production, vintage. "Bend The Bitch" rocks the floor as well, the semi distorted drums and lo-fi vibe is enhanced and used as part of the music, giving it an old feel, Ace Bunker !!!

Police Des Moeurs is a minimal synth-pop band formed in Montreal in 2010 and they give the francophone perspective on what Black Marble, Lust For Youth and Cold Showers did in English in 2012, as well as fitting in with the output of Lescop. Their debut full-length, after some quicky old out singles, is permeated by a cold, melodic and nostalgic music for broken hearts and dark minds. Police Des Moeurs is the soundtrack for the nuclear night, a transition moment between the end of utopia and the final ecological disaster. The world after the future. Police Des Moeurs main influences and interests are underground aestheticisms (1979-1981), industrial transformations and the process of electrification, norms and deviance, nuclear and environmental anxiety as well as paranoia, secret agents, spies and political extremists.

Montréal synth-punk quartet Police Des Moeurs returns on Mannequin Records with a brand new full length entitled 'Ceux Qui Restent', the most dynamic and incendiary record of the group's career, following the highly-acclaimed self-titled release from 2013. While the 1st effort was mostly about how we're all separate from each others, the 2nd one is all about to getting over it and trying to fight it. As vocalist and synth player Francis Dugas explains: 'most of the new LP is about links, love and caring (in PDM style, obviously). The title is 'Ceux qui restent', which means 'Those Who Stay' or something like that. Ceux qui vivent la tempête jusqu'au bout.' Still raw, but more direct and minimal than the 1st LP, 2 tracks feature Pete from Dekoder on bass guitar. Double LP edition (limited to 250 copies) with the add of the 'Punk Tape' LP, previously released on cassette by Runstate. The 2nd LP contains covers of Chron Gen, Reagan Youth, The Headcoatees, Trotskids, Antisect, Anti-Cimex, Rudimentari Peni and Ludwig Von 88. Only 1 copy available !!!

split / 12"

The French label Atelier Ciseaux has released an awesome new split 12" that brings together Montreal's Police Des Moeurs, with the duet Essaie Pas, and fans of early European electronic music, coldwave, post-punk, etc., will find much to love here! Police Des Moeurs was formed in 2010 by Francis Dugas, and what began as a 'studio only' solo project quickly expanded when he added his friend Anouk to help with vocals. Since then, Police Des Moeurs has gone on to become a 4-piece, releasing ep's and split 7"'s on labels like Visage Musique and Atelier Ciseaux, before putting out a self-titled debut LP in 2013 via Mannequin. For their tracks, "Corps Invisible", "Je Te Montrerai", and "Ombre", the group essentializes the new-wave of sounds that came from Europe's electronic scene in the late 70's and early 80's, along the way referencing artists like Alexander Robotnick, Absolute Body Control, and Jean-Michel Jarre, to create an intoxicating nostalgia; and while often ultra-cool, sparse, and minimal, these tracks still pulse with sci-fi sensuality, as well as evocative, future-forward melodies! Essaie Pas also hail from Montreal, and the duo, formed in 2011, includes Marie Davidson and Pierre Guerineau. While they mine similar sonic territory as their album-mates, on tracks like "De Menthe Liqueur Part ll", "Retox", and "CCAARRCCAAJJOOUU", Essaie Pas move in a more minimal techno direction, creating vintage club rhythms, itchy, paranoid melodic elements, and dryly delivered spoken vocals, for a music that bristles with dark, urban atmospheres, and late-night abandon! Vinyl copies of this record are limited to only 300, and it sounds like they are disappearing fast, so be sure to grab one while you still can!

earlier / later / LP

Selections from the prolific Belgian synth-pop band Polyphonic Size. Headed by Roger-Marc Vande Voorde, Polyphonic Size formed in 1979. In December of that year, they released their 1st record, the 'Algorhythmic ep' on Sandwich Records, an independent label founded by Michel Lambot. After a 2nd ep (Pragmatic Songs), Roger-Marc got in touch with Jean-Jacques Burnel, who offered to produce the next single, "Nagasaki Mon Amour". This 1st musical collaboration was followed by many others, including an outrageous and robotic cover of the Rolling Stones’ classic, "Mother’s Little Helper". After several line-up changes, the band finally consisted of Roger-Marc Vande Voorde (vocals, guitar, keyboards, electronics), Kloot Per W (bass, vocals), Martine Bourlée (vocals, percussions) and France Lhermitte (vocals, percussions). Dominique Buxin wrote nearly all the lyrics, but never appeared live on stage or on any record sleeve. Although Polyphonic Size and JJ Burnel were very close to each other, the band always kept its own personality, which was less dark and more European than the Stranglers. The 'Earlier / Later' LP are remastered selections, curated mainly from Polyphonic Size's early output as a band, from when they formed in 1978 to when they began working with JJ Burnel in 1980. The tracks on side A represent their early period were recorded between 1978-1980 and the side B tracks, recorded between 1980-1982, are representative of how their sound evolved whilst working with a producer. The LP is pressed on transparent red 180gr vinyl, housed in a heavy printed sleeve with text overlay printed on a clear vinyl outer sleeve, and limited to 999 hand-numbered copies.

die brücke / LP+7"

Ideally in transit between yesterday and today, between adolescence and maturity, between an arcadian dimension and a more actual reality made of mirrors and metal. Here it is, the sonic trip for these 2 singular characters: Zarkoff & Popsimonova, a taste of sci-fi retro comics, as the bridge of hyena plisskinn in Carpenter's 1997 'Escape From New York' or the characters of the bridge of William Gibson, the master of cyberpunk american literature. The minimal futurstic attitude is deformed, exagerated, distorted, in some case it becomes just a cold expressionism, violent synthetic colours as the sky of Munich, but the scream this time is purely electronic... The bridge, this eternal symbol of passage, the union of opposite realities, in this case reflected itself in the music, with deep roots that lie in the past (for the analog instrumentation) and then leap into the future, materialized from essential and modernist musical structures. Each human being builds its own bridge, a piece at a time, and so it happens the magic of communication, it takes place. In 'Die Brücke' it happens in the ideal musical dialog between this 2 singular characters, with their composite way to write songs. In addition (only for the 1st 100 LP copies) a 7" with 2 songs taken from the LP, "Wall To Wall" and the instrumental "Azzurre", remixed and rearranged by L.A.S.'s Crime, another electronic duo borned in the 80's, as a subtle line between past and future. A special edition that will amaze you with its orange vinyl and shining package..

I staggered mentally / LP

Portion Control is a British electronic and industrial band from south London. The trio of John Whybrew, Ian Sharp & Dean Piavani started out experimenting with electronics in 1980. Linking up with In Phaze Records, they released a number of cassettes and records before signing with Illuminated Records in 1983. There followed a series of classic 12" singles: 'Raise The Pulse', 'Rough Justice' and 'Go-Talk', which have become underground dancefloor hits. The band classifies their music style as Hard Rhythmic Electronics and were a major influence on Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly and Depeche Mode. Going back a few years, the band released their first official vinyl album 'I Staggered Mentally' on In Phaze Records in 1982. This album laid the template for the harder edged rhythmic industrial sound of the 80's and 90's. 'I Staggered Mentally' is as raw as electronic music gets. Dean Piavani's anguished vocals are the lone human element amidst electric drones, metallic beats and alien analog flickers. Lead synths and effects were created with the Roland SH-09 and RS-09. The rhythm section was provided by the Roland TR-606 and then brand new TB-303 Bassline. Pulsing rhythmic tones were generated using the sample and hold feature of the Moog Rogue. This album documents the band's transition from Cabaret Voltaire-inspired experimentalists into proto-EBM and electro-industrial pioneers. It remains a shockingly brutal and viscerally exciting statement. The jacket is an exact replica of the original 1982 edition featuring a pixelated man screaming. Each copy includes a 8 page, stapled pamphlet that contains press releases, concert flyers and photos circa the recording of 'I Staggered Mentally'. The perfect soundtrack for the harsh, even malignant, urban-industrial nightmare..

Medical Records in collaboration with Crispy Nuggets present a collection of tracks by Post Industrial Noise. P.I.N. was an 'audio artsemble' conceived in 1982 in Columbus, Ohio by the trio Robert Crise Jr, Gerald F. Nelson, & Dana Riashi Ritchey. They started on a drum machine, guitars, and vocals but quickly evolved to one member on synths and 2 guitarists on occasional synths. Robert Crise Jr maintained a studio titled "The Center For Contemporary Realism" where he conceived most of the lyrics for P.I.N. Gerald F. Nelson was a local performance artist, and Dana Riashi (OSU art student) claimed to be the 'idea-mediator' between Robert & Gerald. Robert produced a flexidisc of P.I.N. material through an Ohio Arts Council grant and distributed it through the OSU art tabloid 'Dialogue'. The accompanying article from Cleveland's Spaces Gallery noted P.I.N. to have 'redigested their input from influence bands such as Tangerine Dream, PIL and Kraftwerk, to produce their own unique sound'. P.I.N. performed mainly in galleries and occasionally clubs at the time. They produced a cassette release and were soon feeling the pressure to specialize towards more concrete art performance or club venues. It was this pressure that soon led all activity of P.I.N. to a strangling halt unfortunately. Robert soon left Ohio for graduate studies in Detroit where he remains a 'future archeologist' today. Gerald & Dana then proceeded to form the outfit Near Paris. The output of P.I.N. could be described a more experimental/minimalist offshoot of new-wave with pleasant synth sequences blanketed in rich synth tones. Fans of Near Paris will obviously draw comparisons, but the overall feel of P.I.N. is a bit darker and possibly more lo-fi in all aspects. The opening track "Sketch" has a definite coldwave vibe with slightly echoed vocals over a subtle drum machine beat and monotonous synth lines. "Prelude" is a deep instrumental cut with synth and sample interplay resulting in a hypnotic slab of brilliance. The tracks on this collection have been restored from the original analog tape reel for this reissue. For fans of the previously reissued Near Paris and other synth outfits such as Chris & Cosey, early 80's new-wave, and even more edgy artists such as Suicide. Remastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage Studios, UK. Presented on high-quality 180gr heavyweight colored vinyl.

This song is Prince's biggest hit... It was at the top of the charts for 5 weeks in the US ! This song is unique, it's a dance track with no bass line; it's very original and experimental and comes from the hit album "Purple Rain". The lyrics are genius, the beat is phenomenal and the guitar solo is supreme. It has been covered various times by various artists but none of them come close to this version. This song was written by Prince himself and is, in a word... perfect ! Classic masterpiece

the red rope ep

14.99€

Artist : Profligate 

Label : DKA Records 

the red rope ep / 12"

The 'Red Rope ep' makes it plain that Profligate (aka Noah Anthony), is one hell of a craftsman. It consists of 3 diligently constructed tracks that, in addition to boasting sweeping arrangements and complexly layered grooves, employ the essential components of synth-pop and EBM in ways that are fresh yet familiar. He's clearly a child of the recombinant age, who has clinical knowledge of how his influences are put together and, by extension, can be taken apart and reassembled. But this doesn't mean his music is cold and studied. Quite the opposite: it's exceptionally personal. On "From All Sides" and "Annihilated" Anthony's narcotized drawl veers between desperation and resignation, as clipped kicks, knotted static and phantom chords represent all the struggles and issues that so clearly vex him. Halfway through the latter, he moans 'I don't hear you at all' before his voice dissolves into a whirring loop of 'alls'. It's one of those definitive industrial moments when alienation actually sounds erotic. The heavy mood relents oh so slightly on nine-minute track "The Red Rope Again", which takes up the whole of side B. Yet that's only because Anthony, slipping into velvety echo, has submitted fully to the grinding propulsion that surrounds him. Limited to 500 copies with inserts..

This is perhaps the finest pure pop album of the 80's. A tumultuous flow of electronica / noise / pop / germanic style reigned into perfection by Trevor Horn (producer of Frankie Goes To Hollywood). The most inspired track is the Dr Mabuse opus to close the album (over 11 minutes) but the inversion of Jewel / Duel, whereas the third track "Jewel" is the fourth "Duel" in noisy and adrenalised form. Please get it to understand our enthusiasm !

Awesome watery bassline proceeds to kick ass. The 4 tracks wobble all over the place yet stays firmly on the groove, not too much added, not too much taken away,. Proskool know where the groove is, and they aint messing with it. Classic Drexciya inspired sounds, not imitated very well by other artists, but indistinguishable here, a big up to the Marguerita crew for finding such talented artists, Large and Essential !

blake n bite ep / 12"

Psi Spy vs Formless's "locked" kicks it all off by injecting a eye seeking minature missile into your veins, which rattles through your maze like map emitting a heavy bass drum along the way. Battling red blood cells intent on kicking out the invader, sparks and pipe striking chords are sent out into the fray and alert others of the unwelcome visitor. Sending out massive jelly like waves of pulse aggressive battle waves, the tiny nanodroids all up inside blood stream, also attempt to ward off the crazy intruder, and their hits take effect on the evil craft. "Squirrel" also by Psi Spy vs Formless, is on a trip to wreck the party, and also smash the danceflor into a gillon plastic shards. It also plans to then form them into a huge circular ball of bleep fuzz bass and roll it into a busy civilian shopping centre, just for a laugh. Amiga party chaos for you to enjoy and revel in. "Grayam" is then unleashed on your friends and family, this time under the sole command of Psi Spy. It jumps right into your line of sight, and slaps, its metal heads with its thin sharp plastic hands, creating the perfect beatline for the bump fuzz acid melody, and glowing red eyes, that now glare deep into your brain. "Loco" takes a more simplistic line with computer related electro style calling, with a intelligent under rumbling, that self transforms itself at intervals into a beautiful lightshow that gives off a hidden code which only the man made can translate. Attacking simplicity at its very best. "Acidtrax" is in fact what the final track is named, and it doesn't use its name lightly. You are knocked to the ground, by a self propelling, ribbon like, razor wire acid snake, that is circling millimetres above your head, almost like a minature chinook, with a pilot having a repetitive attack fit. Cool track. This ep is a deep, healthy slice of machined programmed dancefloor goodness, that caused my tiny army of honed droids to flip and rotate around like a crazed shitbag. Its all good ;)

re-membering dwayne

Artist : Psyche 

Label : Dark Entries 

re-membering dwayne / LP

At the end of 1981, brothers Darrin and Stephen Huss and schoolmate Dwayne Goettel performed for the 1st time as Psyche in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Their live show was a combination of horror and electronics that was completely unprecedented in Western Canada. Although Goettel and the Huss brothers parted ways before Psyche was to release any material, the masters containing Dwayne Goettel's performances were preserved in the band's vaults. Now, 19 years after Goettel's untimely passing in 1995, Dark Entries Records presents 'Re-Membering Dwayne', the original Psyche-Dwayne Goettel sessions. All tracks were recorded and mixed on 4-track during a single day in march of 1983. Psyche's early material is visceral and abrasive, a far cry from the sleek, dark synthpop they'd later become known for. Like the body horror films of fellow Canadian David Cronenberg, Psyche disquietingly conflate the organic and the mechanical, calling into question the limits of the human form. Dwayne, who would join Skinny Puppy a few years later, contributes heavily to this more aggressive, disturbing sound. Each LP includes a 12-page booklet with excerpts from Darrin Huss' diary, unpublished photos of Psyche with Dwayne, and an essay by Darrin reflecting on Psyche's past and the Goettel legacy as well as lyrics. This collection is a glimpse at the early Canadian industrial scene and the roots of Skinny Puppy. Go take a walk in the past with an ear for the future; you just might learn something ;D

alien be-in remix

14.49€

Artist : Psychic TV 

Label : Dark Entries 

alien be-in remix / 12"

Remix ep of Psychic TV's classic acid house song "Alien Be-In". Psychic TV was formed by Genesis P-Orridge & Peter Christopherson after the breakup of Throbbing Gristle in 1981. After various line up changes, the band shifted direction to dance oriented songs influenced by the Acid House scene in America. By 1988 experimental electronic musician Fred Giannelli, of Turning Shrines, joined the band and over the next 2 years started to record songs for 'Toward The Infinite Beat'. The album was a mix of deep, multilayered tracks full of bright and hypnotic dance numbers, providing the soundtrack to the rave culture that sprung up in the UK in the 90's. "Alien Be-In" was written in early 1989 on an E-mu Emax Sampler and an Alesis MMT-8 sequencer. Vocal samples were taken from a tape Germs drummer Don Bolles sent to Genesis. A didgeridoo rides throughout the song, heavily modulated by a Gristleizer creating a hypnotic effect. Near the end of the song the breakbeat slides out of time yet the band chose to leave this in because it sounded strange and fit the concept of the track. Genesis played a spaced out Echo Violin and the band used 360 degree panning rotation devices. For this reissue Fred Giannelli takes a stab at remixing the mono mix of the original sequence sourced from the Emax floppy discs. On the flip are 2 brand new mixes, the 1st from Los Angeles based producer, Silent Servant, who updates the classic with his modern brand of driving EBM techno. The 2nd remix is a team effort from Silent Servant and veteran producer John Tejada, that re-creates the original melody using a Roland TR-808 and TB-303, paying homage to early Chicago Acid House artists like Lil Louis and Robert Owens. The 12" is housed in a mind-alerting, metallic silver die-cut sleeve and a neon green label that pops through, featuring the psychic skull transformed into an alien cone head label all designed by Eloise Leigh. Each copy includes a 2-sided 11×11 square insert with black and white photo of the band from 1988 and liner notes by Fred Giannelli.
