erde 80 / 10" / MR-014

In 1979, armed with a Korg MS-10 synthesiser and a very simple rhythm box, Christof Glowalla began experimenting with a tape recorder and a few Diy sound generators. Influenced by outfits such as Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire, and Fad Gadget, Glowalla eventually put his creation to tape at the West Berlin 'Musiclab' which was a small 8-track studio in the Kreuzberg district. What resulted in 1980 was the self-released now excruciatingly rare "Erde 80" 7" single. Glowalla also collaborated in a band called Exobit in 1981 with Ingolf Kurkowski and Frank Landgraf, but it was a brief existence. Also in 1981, Glowalla recorded 3 more tracks with Kurkowski which were presented to various record labels, but they unfortunately were never released at the time. Though relatively obscure in the early 80's, the 'Erde 80' 7" release slowly became an underground hit with collectors with subsequently rising prices that continue to rise today. Medical Records is proud to compile for the 1st time the 2 tracks from 'Erde 80' + the 3 tracks recorded in 1981. The tracks are culled from the carefully digitized now lost master tapes. The 1st track, "Erde 80" needs no introduction. Dense analog synth envelopes you in a blanket of warmth accented with processed German vocals. This track has also appeared on the 'New Deutsch' in 2003. The B-side of the original 7" ("Technik") is a dark, brooding synth piece with acoustic guitar passages. Included as well are the above mentioned 3 tracks recorded in 1981. The only one officially released was "Science Fiction" (released by Genetic Music in 2001 on a split 7" with Bakterielle Infektion). It is a an upbeat ditty with sharp hooks and flanged vocals with snappy synth overtones and filter sweeps. "Smog In Der Stadt" is a catchy synth-punk styled number with various shifts. The final track "Der Böse" is a very interesting track with wafting peaceful guitar overlying analog synth with an almost dark-folk texture. For lovers of cold, synth-heavy pop with a darker feel. This collection is released on high-quality 10" opaque mustard colored vinyl in a limited edition of 600 hand-numbered copies. Not to be missed !!
