underground music as well as contemporary bands. A project of Josh Cheon, a vinyl
-focused DJ and collector, Dark Entries takes great care in preserving sound quality

                (Note : 12"EP , 500 hand-numbered copies)

Zwischenfall formed in Belgium with Michael Sass (synths), Martin Urban (bass/vocals)
and Stephan Kraemer (guitar/drums) in 1982. They were united by musical sensibilities
that combined electronic and traditional instruments developing the basis for their
1982 demo recordings. By chance Patrick Codenys of the Belgian electro pioneers Front
242< heard two songs and decided to record a 4-song EP for the electro band's newly
formed label Mask. 
The “Heute” EP was released in 1983 after a week of recording in Front's private studio
under the direction of sound-whiz Daniel B. Bearing in mind MIDI had not been invented
at the time, the recording involved some extensive sound sculpting including the use
of individual synths (PPG Wave, Syrinx, Roland System 100, etc.) for separate drum
sounds. To create an organic feel to the combination of acoustic and electric guitar,
a trumpet and a bass were incorporated into the electronic arrangements. Sonically way
ahead of their time, Zwischenfall have a distinct sound with hard rhythms and
melancholic melodies that blend minimal yet catchy electronics to create a very
danceable production. 
All songs have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. The EP features two
bonus tracks from the “Heute” sessions never before released on vinyl: the uptempo
"Tausend Jahre" and "Katastrophe" the demo version of “Flucht”. Each copy includes an
6-page press kit booklet with lyrics and photos and is housed in an exact replica of
the original jacket.

        Ronny Moorings (Vocals, Guitars, Synthesizers) and Anka Wolbert (Vocals, Bass).
        In April of that year Mooringa bought a TEAC 144 four-track tape recorder and
        the duo moved to Amsterdam. They began to record songs utilizing a Yamaha CS-
        15, Korg MS-10 and MS-20, a BOSS Dr. Rhythm DR-550, guitar and effects pedals.
        They layered the drone-like tones of monophonic synthesizers alongside tape
        loops and rhythm tracks, then played guitar and bass, without the use of
        computers. The 5-song EP Subsequent Pleasures was released in 1984 and limited
        to 500 vinyl copies, and served as a precursor to the dark wave sounds they
        would champion on their self-titled debut on 4AD the following year. Also of
        note, the track “Muscoviet Musquito”, was later re-recorded for the compilation
        album “Lonely Is An Eyesore” released by 4AD in 1987. 
        All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in
        Berkeley. All jackets have been silk-screened with pink and grey paint, using

Die Form is a French post-industrial and electronic band formed in 1977. The name 'Die
Form' means '(the) form/shape' in German, like the Bauhaus diary and is a play on the
English homonym 'deformed' and on the French homonym 'difforme' (deformed). Die Form is
the primary project of electronic musician and multimedia artist Philippe Fichot. He
began by recording a number of experimental cassette releases in the late 1970s and
formed the Bain Total label to release these early cassettes and various side projects
including Krylon Hertz, Mental Code, Camera Obscura, Eva-Johanna Reichstag, Hurt and
Fine Automatic.
All songs have been remastered from the original master tapes for vinyl by George Horn
at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is an exact replica of the original 1982 ed.
designed by Philippe Fichot, with a photograph of a porcelain doll holding a syringe.
Each album includes two post cards with never before seen photos of Philippe with
lyrics and liner notes by the band. Prepare to indulge your lustiest hedonistic

(Note : Van Kaye + Ignit is the Dutch duo of Ed Van Kasteren (Van Kaye) and Ignatine
        Bekken (Ignit), who joined forces in the city of Arnhem during early 1980.
        While at university, Van Kaye was the singer of The MoNoMeN, a local new wave
        band. By the end of'79 he had become more interested in the use of electronics
        and rhythmic industrial patterns. In April 1980 he released a demo cassette
        with 30 minutes of his own work titled “A Slight Delay". While experimenting
        with synthesizers and developing extreme sounds, he met Ignit, who had prev.
        worked in the fields of art and performance. Together they recorded their first
        4 songs with guest musician Williem Wisselink (Wizzkopf) in the summer of 1981,
        and released the "Picassos on the Wall 7“ later that year on their own Ding
        Dong label. Van Kaye + Ignit then began work on their debut 60 minute cassette
        album, A Slight Delay. Like the 7”, all songs were recorded and mixed by Van
        Kaye at his home studio on a TEAC A-3440 four-track recorder.
        Self-released in 1981, the album pairs conceptual sophistication with disarming
        naiveté in a way that has been difficult to replicate since the formative years
        of 'bedroom' electronic music. Both members handle vocals (or non-vocals), and
        songs feature everything from new wave riffs to slowly shifting oscillator
        buzzes and eerie electronics over mechanical rhythms.
        This reissue includes the entire 11-track original c-60 cassette A Slight Delay
        as well as all 4 tracks from the "Picassos on the Wall 7” spread across two
        vinyl discs. For the first time ever, the original 1/4” master tapes have been
        transferred and remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in
        Berkeley. The jacket is a replica based on the original A Slight Delay cassette
        artwork, which was designed by the Van Kaye, with a hand-colored textured
        photograph resized and laid out by Eloise Leigh. Each album includes an 8x14
        double sided insert with photos, lyrics, liner notes by the band, and a fold
        -out poster)

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" four 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 rec. with a purposely damaged 4­track".
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.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
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.”.

(Note : Portion Control is a British electronic and industrial band from South London.
        The trio of John Whybrew, Ian Sharp and 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 80s and 90s. 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
        Cab. Voltaire-inspired experimentalists into proto-EBM and electro-industrial
        pioneers. It remains a shockingly brutal and viscerally exciting statement.
        All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in
        Berkeley. 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.)

(Note : (Lena Platonos) is a Greek musician, pianist and music composer. One of the
        pioneers in the Greek electronic music scene of the 1980s, 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 two and became a profess.
        pianist before turning eighteen. 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 Corp. 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.
        (‘Gallop’) was Lena Platonos' second 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 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.
        All songs have been remastered from the original master tapes for vinyl by
        George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is an exact replica of
        the 1985 edition featuring Lena’s original collage. Each copy includes a two
        -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.)

(Note : Moral was the trio of Marco Andreis (Guitars, Bass), Hanne Winterberg (Vocals)
        and Ingolf Brown (Synthesizers, Rhythm Box, Sequencer) from Aarhus, Denmark
        formed in 1981. They released their debut mini-album “Dance of the Dolls” on
        cassette in 1981 and the album “Whispering Sons” on cassette in 1982. The group
        played very few concerts, but supported both Monochrome Set and Nico. In May
        1983, they contributed three songs to the Irmgardz Records sampler “Somewhere
        Outside”, a compilation featuring groups from outside of Copenhagen.
        During the summer of 1983, Moral recorded and produced their debut LP, “And
        Life Is…” at Ingolf Brown’s home studio. It was the first release on Ingolf’s
        label ARP Gramophone in August 1984. Influenced by early 4AD Records, Joy
        Division, Brian Eno and Wire, the band crafted their own brand of Nordic
        melancholic Post Punk. The album develops the band’s signature sound of airy,
        glacial synthesizers with crepuscular guitar and serpentine melodies. The main
        synthesizers used are the primitive Roland TR-606 Drumatix, the percussion side
        -kick to the TB-303,  plus the BOSS DR-55 Dr. Rhythm drum machine. Hanne’s 
        hauntingly beautiful vocals walk the line between germanic chill of Nico and
        Alison Statton of Young Marble Giants. Lyrical themes of cold nights and
        blossoming relationships paint a detailed picture of youthful life in
        Scandinavia. This deluxe edition contains three bonus tracks that originally
        appeared on the “Somewhere Outside” compilation.
        All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in
        Berkeley. The jacket is an exact replica of the original 1984 edition featuring
        a photo by Per Wiklund of a wave crashing into the sea.  Each copy includes a
        double sided 11”x11” insert containing lyrics for each song and photos of the
        band. This reissue is dedicated to Ingolf Brown who passed away in 2012.)

        Clash­-esque punk group with fellow experimental Scottish musician Robert
        Rental. After hearing Kraftwerk, Leer became interested in synthesizers – not
        long after, he was exploring the experimental techniques of Eno, Zappa,
        Beefheart, Faust, and Can

(Note : Joe Crow is a post-punk musician from Birmingham, England. He was a member of
        legendary Brum band The Prefects, and hung on long enough after the name-change
        to appear on a couple of early Nightingales singles. In 1981 Joe began his solo
        career and recorded a 2-song demo “Compulsion” and “Absent Friends”. Joe sent
        copies of the finished recordings to Cherry Red, who thanks to Lawrence of
        Felt, ended up releasing the single in 1982. An edited version of the single
        would later appear on the compilation “Pillows & Prayers” that collected songs
        which originated as 45s or EPs. Martin Gore of Depeche Mode subsequently
        covered “Compulsion” on his ‘Counterfeit’ EP in 1989 forever solidifying its
        status in the cannon of UK melancholic synth pop.
        All songs have been remastered from the original master tapes for vinyl by
        George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is an exact replica of
        the 1982 edition enlarged for the 12” format, featuring front and back photos
        of Joe from a dawn beach shoot at Hayling Island, Hampshire, England. Each copy
        includes a two-sided newsprint insert with lyrics, never-before-seen photos and

Smersh was the duo of Mike Mangino and Chris Shepard, who began making music together
in the late 70s. They were uninterested in traditional notions of songwriting or live
performance. Everything they needed was in Piscataway NJ: a basement full of analog
gear, a Roland TR-606 (the same “Roland” who was listed as a member of Big Black),
a SH-09 (Cabaret Voltaire’s favorite synth), and a TB-303 (the sound of acid house).
Most Monday nights, they would write a new song from scratch. A couple hours later, the
song was recorded, never to be performed again.
Each song has been carefully remastered from the cassette originals for vinyl by George
Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a sludge-infused jacket
designed by Eloise Leigh, using art motifs and textures sourced from their original
cassettes, as well an 11×11 offset printed insert.

DE      091     MAX GULD                FOR ENDEN AF CORRIDOREN         LP      05.2015

Max Guld is a post-punk musician from Glostrup, Denmark one of the western suburbs of
Copenhagen. In 1983 he formed a band called Den Forspildte Elite with a friend from
high school taking inspiration from experimental art punks The Residents. From the
beginning of 1984 to the beginning of 1985, he recorded a solo album in his 30 square
meter apartment. The result was a 40 minute cassette titled ‘For Enden Af Corridoren’
released in 1985 on Hub Records that was limited to 100 copies. Six of the eleven songs
on the album are instrumentals ranging from ‘For Enden Af Corridoren’ was written,
produced, recorded and performed by Max without the involvement of any others. Infl.
by the avant-garde electronic sounds of Brian Eno and Kraftwerk, Max created eerie
synthesizer driven songs with intricate guitar work and mechanical vocals. More than
half of the album are instrumentals. All songs were recorded using a borrowed Moog
Prodigy, Roland Organ/Strings, Korg KPR-77 rhythm machine, Gibson Les Paul De Luxe and

All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The jacket is a replica of the original cassette artwork resized for a 12” LP and laid
out by Eloise Leigh. Each album includes an double-­sided insert with photos, lyrics
and liner notes by Max Guld.

        A.      I Wanna Fly Away (Vocal)
        B.      I Wanna Fly Away (Instrumental)

Blue Russell was the husband/wife duo of Manlio Cangelli and Lorella Ghilardi from
Milan. Cangelli was a session musician and composer for many Italian singers, making
music for commercial TV and working long days in the studio. He had a strong passion
for the analog synthesizers of the time and discovered the latest drum machines. After
appreciating a healthy dose of Giorgio Moroder and Donna Summer, he set out to make
dance music similar to the Disco sounds of the late 1970s. The duo would go on to write
and produce many Italo classics for artists such as B. Rose, Wish Key, Clay Pedrini,
Jerry Moon, Scotch and more.
“I Wanna Fly Away” was recorded in Milan in the Spring of 1984 and released later that
year on Disco Magic Records. The band created their signature sound using an Oberheim
OB-X, Elka Synthex and Roland JX-3P as well as a cache of drum machines like the
Oberheim DMX, Roland TR-808 and E-mu Drumulator. Cangelli uses double octaves, a
technique where one hand plays the high notes of the chords on one synthesizer and at
the same time another hand plays the bass notes of the same chords in a shorter time.
This skillful alternation creates the unique arpeggios signature to Cangelli’s stylized
sound. Lorella’s vocals are haunting and powerful. She oozes charisma as she sings
about the loss of a lover and the sadness she feels, wishing she could escape this
world. The B-side features an instrumental version with monolithic synth lines and
throbbing drums.
Both songs are remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The
vinyl comes housed in a jacket with original artwork of a Lorella standing in the
cockpit of a plane, ready to fly away at any moment. Each copy includes 2-sided
postcard with lyrics, photos and notes designed by Eloise Leigh.

side project of Adrian Borland and Graham Bailey, members of post punk band The Sound.
The project was born from early punk band The Outsiders, which had both Graham and
Adrian as members. Second Layer featured the voice and guitars of Adrian mixed with the
bass and pioneering electronics of Graham. The music was bleak, detached, and desolate,
but very beautiful. Honest songwriting and a harsh sonic backdrop set them apart from
their peers.
The band’s first two singles were released by Tortch label. The first was ‘Flesh As
Property’ EP in 1979 and the second ‘State Of Emergency’ EP in 1980. By 1981 Second
Layer had found a home on London-based label Cherry Red and released their debut album
“World of Rubber” in November of that year. Full of hard mechanical sounds produced by
Adrian’s guitars and Graham’s homemade drum machines, the album actively engages the
listener. Songs are manic and twisted, pervaded with haunting subterranean atmospheres.
Adrian’s anguished voice tackles lyrics that are politically charged and morbidly
fixated. Metallic guitar riffs, moody basslines, and Wasp synthesizer beeps are set to
the band’s cache of processed tape loops. They are a homegrown electronic garage band
that sit alongside their contemporaries Joy Division, Cabaret Voltaire and Public Image
Limited.
This deluxe 2xLP edition features the complete recorded output of Second Layer plus 5
unreleased demos from 1978-80. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn
at Fantasy Studios. Each LP comes in an exact replica of the original metallic sliver 
nd black jacket from the 1981 issue with a never seen before fold out poster made by
the band in 1980 with liner notes, photos and press clippings. Though Adrian passed
away in 1999, his genius lives on in these recordings. “Clap the headphones on, squeeze
the volume up.”

Dark Entries is proud to release the sophomore EP from Bézier entitled “Telomeres.
” Bézier is the moniker of local SF musician Robert Yang, who also is part of the
illustrious Honey Soundsystem crew. “Telomeres” is the follow up to Bézier’s debut EP
“Ensconced”, released in 2013. The title relates to themes of time, science, analytics
and procedures. Bézier integrates the refrains of Spanish new wave and Italo disco with
the attitude and aggression of underground styles like synth-punk and industrial. These
six tracks were written, produced and mixed by Bézier at his home studio in SF between
2014 and 2015, and feature the debut of his own vocals.
All songs have been mixed by Mark Pistel (of Meat Beat Manifesto fame) at Room 5, San
Francisco and EQed for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. The vinyl comes housed
in a jacket featuring an illustration by in-house designer Eloise Leigh riffing on
early 80s computer graphics. The matted sleeve is meant to resemble the side panels of
early computing instruments like Macintoshes or the Commodore 64. Each LP includes a
postcard with a photograph of actual telomeres captured by a microscope camera by the
Blackburn Lab at UCSF. “Telomeres” are life’s building blocks, changing the lengths of
chromosomes to determine lifespan. This music is an investigation of a future in which
time elongates as well as contracts.

DE      098     MISS KITTIN & THE HACKER : LOST TRACKS VOL.1            12"     08.2015

        2.      Nightlife
        3.      Miss Crazy Bullshit
        4.      Loving The Alien

Miss Kittin & The Hacker are the Electro duo of Caroline Hervé and Michel Amato from
Grenoble, France. The pair met during the early 90s at a rave and soon after bought
turntables and began DJing. In 1996, they began writing music heavily influenced by 80s
synth and post-punk bands like Fad Gadget, DAF, Liaisons Dangeuresues, and Yazoo, as
well as Italo Disco. Bored by the techno scene at the time, they set out out to lighten
the serious tone and bring a campy sexiness to the dour musical landscape. Upon hearing
their demos DJ Hell signed them to his Munich-based International DJ Gigolo label and
released their first 2 EPs in 1998 and 1999. Their debut album ”First Album” was
released in 2001.
“Lost Tracks Vol. 1” contains 4 previously unreleased demos recorded between 1997 and
1999. The duo fused 80’s European New Wave/Italo Disco with 90’s Detroit Electro acts
like Le Car and Dopplereffekt. By utilizing verse-chorus structures, they playfully
shook up the loop based hard techno and electro that was popular at the time. Their
studio set up at the time was a Korg MS-20, Roland SH-101, TR-606, TR-808, Siel DK80,
and Boss DR-660 drum machine. The songs are direct, spontaneous, seemingly improvised
in places. Miss Kittin sings about falling in love with an alien, sexy nightlife in
Berlin, and explicit S&M leather play, all in her cheekily derisive French accent
All songs have been transferred from the original DAT tapes by the band and mastered
for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy jacket
featuring a black and white photo of the duo taken in 1996. Each LP includes a postcard
with liner notes from Miss Kittin and The Hacker designed by Eloise Leigh. As Miss
Kittin says of these demos, “We were naive, innocent, adventurous and we didn’t expect
anything in return”.

Shoc Corridor was the London post-punk quartet of Paul OCarroll (Voice, Synth), Andy
Garnham (Synth, Bass, Drum), Chris Davis (Guitar, Bass, E-Bow) and Nogi Prass (Synth)
named after the Sam Fuller film from 1963. Chris met Nogi shortly after moving to
London in 1979, started playing music together, fell madly in love and decided to form
a band. They recruited Andy, who had previously played in a band with Steve Luscombe of
Blancmange, and lyricist and vocalist Paul. A home studio was set up at Andys flat in
Notting Hill, where the band recorded and rehearsed. More interested in studio
experimentation than live performance, the band only played a handful of gigs. Their
influences were wide reaching: Kraftwerk, Neu, Cabaret Voltaire, Eno, PIL, and Joy
Division. Their equipment list included a Korg MS-20, Wasp, Pro-One, Roland TR-808,
WEM Copicat, guitars, bass, e-bow and an assortment of effects pedals. The crucial
fifth member of the band was, of course, a TEAC reel-to-reel 4-track recorder.

Boytronic is a synthpop group from Hamburg, Germany founded by by Holger Wobker and
Peter Sawatzki in 1982. The duo began composing music as the soundtrack to sex shows on
Hamburgs famous "Mile of Sin". Soon after, Holger started working in a local record
shop where he played early Boytronic demos during his shifts. A representative from
Mercury Records came to the shop, heard the songs and gave the band a contract. They
would go to release many singles and two albums "The Working Model" in 1983 and "The
Continental" in 1985. By 1986 the record company claimed rights to the band name and
put together a completely different line-up fronted by Hayo Lewerentz. This new
incarnation continued to record under the Boytronic name until the mid--90's.

Crash Course In Science are a post punk band that formed in 1979 in Philadelphia. The
band members, Dale Feliciello, Mallory Yago and Michael Zodorozny, met while attending
art school, where they began to experiment with crude electronics and off-beat lyrics.
CCIS avoided conventional instrumentation by using toy instruments and kitchen
appliances to augment the distorted guitar, drums and synthesized beats. Their first
single, “Cakes in the Home” was released in 1979 followed by a 4-song 12" EP “Signals 
From Pier Thirteen” in 1981.
“Jump Over Barrels” was recorded at the Third Story Studio in Philadelphia in 1981, one
year after “Signals From Pier Thirteen”. The song remained unmixed and unreleased at
that time for a proposed album titled “Near Marineland”. Lyrically the song tackles
overcoming obstacles, self imposed or otherwise, with vocal interplay between Michael
and Mallory. On the A Side is the original mix and a demo mix from 1981. Then on the
flip is a brand new remix by prolific Ann Arbor producer Charles Manier, a pseudonym of
Tadd Mullinix, who toughens up the track. Also included is an unreleased demo version
of the song from 1980, accentuating the raw and skeletal nature of the track.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
It is in a custom-made jacket by our in-house designer Eloise Leigh that incorporates
waveform-esque squiggles jumping over abstract barrel symbols, plus a postcard with
lyrics and notes.

Immersed in the early days of the 90s midwest rave scene, Bill Converse began DJing at
a young age in Lansing, Michigan. Luminaries such as Claude Young, Traxx, and Twonz
were key early influences. Since moving to Texas in 1998, he has experimented with
analog techniques in varied studio bunkers. Early techno, noise, ambient, tape, and
paranormal processing are all part of his uncanny sound palette.
“Meditations/Industry” is Converse's debut vinyl release, collecting material from
a cassette release on Obsolete Future. The tracks were recorded to tape with no
overdubs in 2012-2013. As the title implies, the album places meditation inside tactile
sonic processes. Bill is informed by his surroundings, influenced by scenes of
desolation in nature, the sea, the desert, and places of industry, like power stations,
old factories, and warehouses. The songs on this full length reveal a sublime influence
from Detroit techno, early Chicago house, and Acid.
The album was recorded and mixed by Bill at his home studio in Austin and mastered by
Dave Alex. All songs were EQed for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
A custom-made jacket designed by our in-house designer Eloise Leigh incorporates the
abstract cobalt glaciers, reminiscent of blueprints, over a dark gray background. Each
copy includes a postcard with notes and a photograph of a mountain range that looks
like ocean waves.

Dark Entries digs deeper in to the archives of Severed Heads, one of the longest
surviving bands to emerge from the Australian post-punk independent music scene. They
began in Sydney in 1979, incorporating elements of ‘industrial’ noise-generation, tape
cutting & looping and electro sound synthesis. As the project developed song-structures
and vocals were employed in a more-or-less recognizable mutant electro pop style. In
1986 the band released the 12” single “Petrol” on Nettwerk Records. We’ve decided to
shed light on the evolution of “Petrol” with this EP showcasing four earlier
incarnations of what became an instant synth pop classic.
All songs are remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.

Stephen Jones’ video synthesizer created by Tom Ellard video piece “Kato Gets The Girl”

Dark Entries present another, unheard haul of Patrick Cowley's gay porn soundtracks in
their ongoing reissue of the San Fran disco legend's prized archive.
Pursuing the brilliant School Daze compilation, the music in Muscle Up is also boldly
innovative, esoteric and off-centre, covering themes ranging from sunken downbeat
romance and psychedelia thru to immersive, atmospheric epics and supremely sleazy (yet
classy) disco grooves and cracked-off funk breaks. 
It all provides an insight to the rarified, genuinely underground world of San Fran's
long-rooted and open-minded queer scene which the majority of listeners will never
experience, and as such works on a cryptic level full of sonic signifiers and tones
that may well have a meaning in their original context that doesn't directly translate
to straight crowds. You'll just have to guess.

        6.      This Time

The Frozen Autumn is an Italian darkwave band, formed in May 1993 in Turin, Italy.
Originally the solo project of singer, keyboardist and synth programmer Diego Merletto,
guitarist Claudio Brosio joined on during early studio sessions and live performances.
Together they recorded and released two albums, “Pale Awakening” in 1995 and “Fragments
of Memories” in 1997. In 1998, Claudio left the band and Diego recruited Arianna (aka
Froxeanne) who sings, programs and composes. After 18 months of work, The Frozen
Autumn's third album, “Emotional Screening Device”, was released in April 2002.. “Time
Is Just A Memory” is a 6-track overview of songs from The Frozen Autumn’s first three
albums. Characterized by a blend of melancholic vocals, atmospheric gothic-wave and
1980s-style electropop, the duo call their style "frozen wave”.
The Frozen Autumn have stated that labelmates Clan of Xymox have been their main source
of inspiration over the years. Other influences include Dead Can Dance, Cocteau Twins,
The Sisters of Mercy, Xmal Deutschland, David Sylvian and Depeche Mode. These six
tracks stand out for their rich melodies, from the  guitar-laden early tracks “Dusk Is
Like A Dagger”, “Wait For Nothing”, “There's No Time To Recall”, and “This Time,” to
the  electronic sheen on later songs “Is Everything Real?” and “Silence Is Talking”.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The release is housed in a custom-made jacket by Peer Lebrecht, from German electro
/synthpop band The Dust Of Basement, incorporating a photograph by Diego over a
textured background that recalls early 4AD designs. Each copy comes with a double sided
11x11 insert with lyrics and notes.

DE      109     FRAK                    SUDDEN HAIRCUT EP               12"     03.2016

        A1.     Sudden Haircut
        A2.     Synthfrilla
        B1.     Synthgok
        B2.     First Glimt I Ogat

Frak are Björn Isgren, Johan Sturesson and Jan Svensson, a trio of synthesizer lovers
from Sweden. The band was formed when Svensson and Isgren’s older sisters were best
friends and they introduced their little brothers to each other. Inspired by Severed
Heads, DAF, Human League, Devo, Skinny Puppy,the boys began collecting analog equipment
and started Studio Styrka. While the band were still in their early teens they released
the first FRAK cassette album in 1987 on their own record label Börft. 
Almost 30 years later, FRAK continue to release their bizarre brand of Scandinavian
techno with their debut release on Dark Entries. “Sudden Haircut” was recorded in 2015,
a ten-minute brooding, heavy hitting acid attack full of 808 drum claps aimed at the
dance floor. The three remaining songs come from a studio tape the band found in their
archives named 'FRAK "After The Silence" 2001-2010' “Synthgök” and “Synthfrilla” were
recorded in 2010 and originally released on the ‘Börft’ EP by Sex Tag Mania in 2012.
Utilizing a 808, 303, 101 and MS-10, both are supreme cuts of electro leaning acid
techno that perfectly fit the sweatiest moments of any club land experience. The
deliciously rugged final track “First Glimt I Ögat” is a vintage unreleased Frak song
from 2001 recorded one month before the track “Second Coming” (later released as B1 on
‘Börft’ EP).
All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
Designer Eloise Leigh has created a playful DIY jacket based on a mysterious black and
white photo of the band in their classic tin foil masks. Each copy comes with a black
and white postcard featuring a distorted back stage photo of FRAK in their teens.
“Forget all you know about Swedish electronic music, this is Börft crew, the core
underground of "söta bror's" techno history - here represented by Frak - a full out
techno acid punch.” Juno Records

DE      110     KONSTRUKTIVISTS         A DISSEMBLY                     LP+flx. 03.2016

        6       Karnal
        7       Physical Jerk
FLEXI:          Smack (Original Mix)

Konstruktivists are a UK Industrial group formed by Glenn Michael Wallis in 1982 out of
the ashes of Heute. In the late 70's/early 80's Wallis was heavily involved with
Throbbing Gristle and the Industrial Records crew. Influenced by Krautrock bands like
Can, NEU!, Cluster/Harmonia as well as Tuxedomoon, Yello, Chrome, SPK, and early Clock
DVA, Glenn began to record his own material. After several cassette releases through
Flowmotion under his own name, Konstruktivists’ first LP “A Dissembly” was released in
1982. 
To record “A Dissembly,” Glenn went into IPS Studio in Shepherds Bush, London. Glenn
played synthesziers, percussion and vocals, with help from Dave Rouse (guitar), Adrian
Grover (piano, tape loops) and Dave Kenny (engineer, treatments, tapes). The equipment
used for this album includes a Korg MS-20, Casio MT-40, Roland TR-606 and TB-303, Korg
Space Echo 555 and an Eventide Harmonizer previously used by Throbbing Gristle. In the
studio was an old broken piano which was recorded with two microphones onto an 18 foot
tape loop. Chris Carter of Throbbing Gristle modified Glenn’s TR-606 with separate
outputs for snare and bass drums to help create the slap back snare sound heard through
the album. Konstruktivists create their own brand of Industrial using tape loops and
lurching rhythms arched by droning melodies. 
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The record is housed in an exact replica of the original jacket, featuring a black and
white photograph of a church by Dave Byatt and hand lettering and line drawing by Lorna
M. Each copy includes a 2-page double-sided 8x11 insert with liner notes by Glenn
Wallis, press clippings, and photos, plus a bonus flexi-disc containing the song
“Smack”, which was recorded during the same session as “A Dissembly”.

        A2.     No 9 (Red Axes Remix)
        B1.     And We Hear I Love You (Red Axes Remix)
        B2.     Liqueur Ruby (Red Axes Remix)

Lena Platonos is a pioneer of the Greek electronic music scene of the 1980s. She
produced and released her second solo album, ‘Gallop’, in 1985 that we reissued in
2015. The album is made exclusively using analog synthesizers and heavily features the
iconic Roland TR-808 drum machine. Lena narrates each song, reciting her own surreal
Greek poetry with unique skill. Lena says of ‘Gallop’, “It’s a study in the mythology
of urban population of the contemporary metropolis and also a gaze into the future life
of it.”
We’ve asked Red Axes to chose their four favorite songs from ‘Gallop’ and create
remixes for each one. Red Axes is Tel-Aviv based producers and DJs Dori Sadovnik and
Niv Arzi, releasing their own productions and remixes since 2009 on I’m a Cliché,
Correspondant and Hivern Discs. The duo was raised on a steady diet of post-punk,
new-wave and Italo-disco at fogged out warehouse and basement parties. They’ve
transform “Witches” and “And We Hear “I Love You”” into solid dancefloor tools.
“No. 9” and “Liqueur Ruby” transport the listener to a hypnotic state tripped out in
a psychedelic mist, with the latter featuring middle eastern rhythms by fellow Tel Aviv
musicians The Dirty Lizards.
All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The jacket riffs off the original ‘Gallop’ cover, isolating the photograph of Lena
layered on a grid backdrop designed by Eloise Leigh. Each copy includes a two-sided
postcard with a manipulated frame from one of Lena’s music videos. “In an era where we
are obsessed with nostalgia, Red Axes achieved something against that grain while still
paying homage to the underrated greats that came before them.” – Anthem Magazine

        3       Mawkish

        5       What Do You Live For

ZYX are the duo of Inge Graf and Walter Eberl formed in Vienna, Austria in 1977.
Committing themselves to the “aestheticisation of everyday life” in all fields of art,
their works with video, photography, graphic design, and music are visually influenced
by Pop Art, Constructivism, Futurism, Dadaism and musically rooted in Beat and
Electronic Rock of the 60s and 70s. They are considered pioneers of multimedia art
worldwide and continue to remain active to this day.
Trust No Woman' is the debut album from ZYX released in 1981 on the label RCA Music.
Recorded from March to August 1981 at Recorded, mixed and mastered at SM&S-studio
Vienna. Building on the early work of Gary Numan and the original Human League designed
their short, immediate songs around a barrage of analogue synths, rock-solid electro
beats and controlled, low-key vocals. It is an exceptional showcase of electro-pop,
cold and mechanical robotic rhythms under a claustrophobic atmosphere. Songs are sung
in English with a heavy German accent and lyrics resemble obscure, existentialist
dialogues. Each song is infused with the spirit of hopeful discovery that accompanied
the introduction of affordable home computers and synthesizers at that time. It is a
album that advances the sounds set forth by The Human League, Cabaret Voltaire,
Tuxedomoon and Yello. 
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The vinyl comes housed in replica of the original jacket design, which features a
photograph from a video still by ZYX. Each LP includes a copy of the double sided 11x11
full color insert that was included with the original pressing featuring photos and
lyrics plus a postcard. ZYX may not be as revered or, indeed, as important as Kraftwerk
; yet their work shares the technological melancholy that suffuses through the music of
the men from Düsseldorf.

        5       Der Tunnel

Lunapark is the trio of Burkhard Ballein, Klaus "Schlips" Gebauer, Reinhard "Zoppen"
Benisch from Wuppertal, Germany. Formed in 1981 when the boys were dissatisfied with
their surrounding musical environment. They packed their instruments and a cassette
recorder and set off to create their own brand of Neue Deutsche Welle (NDW "New German
Wave”). Their influences included The Beatles, Colloseum, Roxy Music, Frank Zappa as
well as Sex Pistols, Ian Dury & The Blockheads, Blondie and The Cure. 
“Gefangene Vögel’ (‘Prisoner Birds’) is their debut album released by Intakt Records,
Stuttgart in 1982. Utilizing a simple set up of guitar, bass, drums, drum-computer,
Korg MS-10 and Korg MS-20 they recorded 10 tracks that make up the album. Songs bridge
the Belgian-type industrial and cold sounds with NDW quirkiness. In the vein of Sad
Lovers and Giants, and Schleimer K they blend post-punk and new wave music with
electronic influences. All songs are sung in German with monotone vocals and epitomized
the urban Zeitgeist of the Cold War. 
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The vinyl comes housed in a replica of the original jacket design, which features a
drawing of birds on a grid. There are 4 different color versions of the screen printed
jacket: blue, yellow, magenta and turquoise. Each LP includes a copy of the double
sided 11x11 insert that was included with the original pressing with lyrics and photos.

Dark Entries is proud to present “Household Shocks”, a 16-track compilation of UK DIY/
Synth/New Wave/Post-Punk originally released in 1980. The album showcases 9 bands from
the thriving post-punk scene in Scunthorpe and the North of England. Operating on a
shoestring budget, co-producers Chris Leaning and Paul Singleton (both of One Gang
Logic), released "Household Shocks" on Stark Products, a label they founded in 1979. At
almost 50 minutes of music, the album took four weeks to produce at the Studio
Playground in Lincoln. It was supported heavily by the late Radio 1 DJ John Peel.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The vinyl comes housed in replica of Chris Leaning's original jacket design, which
features a black and white photograph of a doll shocked by a vacuum cleaner. Each LP
includes a copy of the double sided 11x11 insert that was included with the original
pressing. “It was such an exciting time for everyone involved, creating and producing
music was still quite new to many of us let alone running a record label and pressing
vinyl”

        2       Things We Never Did
        3       Lost In A Moment

The Tightrope Touch Sad Lovers & Giants are a post-punk band from Watford, England who
formed in 1980. The original lineup included vocalist Garçe (Simon) Allard, guitarist
Tristan Garel-Funk, bassist Cliff Silver, drummer Nigel Pollard and keyboardist/sax.
David Wood. They released their first 3-song 7” EP “Clé” followed by the "Colourless
Dream" single both in 1981 and “Lost In A Moment” 7” single in 1982. They released two
studio albums, “Epic Garden Music” (1982) and “Feeding the Flame” (1983) before
disbanding and reforming in 1987.
“Lost In A Sea Full Of Sighs” is a collection of 9 songs recorded between 1981 and
1982. Compiling all seven song from their first three 7” singles plus one demo and one
song recorded for a John Peel Session in 1981. Lead singer and songwriter Garce Allard
was influenced by the works of Satre, Orwell, Huxley, Dali and Kafka and especially
T.S. Elliot’s ‘The Wasteland’. The sense of alienation from reality in the stream of
conscious-like prose, perfectly echoed his own experience. Many of the lyrics on this
collection are vaguely autobiographical and tend towards melodrama and personal
relationships. The music is moody, dense, cerebral, bass-driven, awash with synthesizer
swirls and sax interjections like The Chameleons, Modern English and The Cure.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The jacket features a drawing of an espalier used for "horizontal training”,a technique
to control the directional growth of plants designed by Eloise Leigh. Each copy incl.
an 8 page black and white zine booklet with lyrics, liner notes and drawings plus a 
8.5x11” gig poster from the band’s archives. “This small anthology of songs, by a
little known and perverse English band from the 1980’s means as much to us as I hope it
will to you.” (Grace Allard)

DE      120     DEUX FILLES : SILENCE & WISDOM/DOUBLE HAPPINESS         2LP     05.2016

The short, mysterious career of the female French duo Deux Filles is bookended by
tragedy. Gemini Forque and Claudine Coule met as teenagers at a holiday pilgrimage
to Lourdes, during which Coule's mother died of an incurable lung disease and Forque's
mother was killed and her father paralyzed in an auto accident. The two teens bonded
over their shared grief and worked through their bereavement with music. However,
after recording two critically acclaimed albums and playing throughout Europe and
North America, Forque and Coule disappeared without a trace in North Africa in 1984
during a trip to visit Algiers. The short and terribly unhappy lives of Forque and
Coule are at the root of the small but fervent cult following the mysterious duo have
gained since their disappearance, not least because the placid, largely instrumental
music on the duo's albums betrays no hint of the sorrow that framed their personal
lives.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The vinyl comes housed in gatefold sleeve with original front covers of both albums,
and a centerfold of archive images and the original liner notes.  Each LP includes a
sticker of the Lino cuts by Adrian Gill that was included with the original pressing.
“Like an early French film soundtrack with melodramatic overtones, the sound is jagged
and disjointed but never harsh. Lilting guitars and ample use of echo smack of Vini
Reilly, relying on the hypnotic qualities of the sound rather than abrasive noise"
(Sounds, 03/1983)

Phantom Forth were the brother sister 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. Paul began recording his own
music after purchasing a 2-track from Oceania Sound. He formed a band with his
flatmate and eventually met Lorraine through Debbie. With a shared love of Young
Marble Giants 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 Casio-Tone VL, Boss DR-55 Dr. Rhythm, Roland TR-606 and an
acoustic Yamaha bass.  All original vinyl copies contained many clicks and pops and
due to paper bits from previous jobs that pressing plant melted down. Included with
this reissue are two 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’.

All songs have been remastered from the original master tapes for vinyl by George
Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in sleeve with original
artwork collage designed by Paul Lurker.  Each LP includes a two-sided 8.5x11 poster

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”.

All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
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.

SIDE B  1       Third Skin (Steffi Remix)    
        2       Third Skin ( The Hacker Remix)

Cute Heels is the solo project of Victor Lenis, a contemporary artist living in
Barcelona, Spain. He grew up in Bogotá, Columbia during the 1990s, surrounded by the
radial punk scene. Over the years, Victor's passion and fascination for synthesizers
and drum machines to produce and compose resulted in various digital-only releases as
well as his debut album “Spiritual" for Dark Entries in 2014.  Cute Heels has been
called ''the new blood and spirit for the next step in techno music'' by Electro/
Techno pioneer Juan Atkins.
“Third Skin” is a 4-track EP that connects the dots between Detroit techno, early
Chicago house and Belgium electronic body music. Inspired by equal parts Liaisons
Dangereuses, Drexciya and Black Devil Disco Club. On the A-side are two fresh
compositions recorded in 2015. “Third Skin” kicks things in a metallic EBM funk with
a pounding bottom end. “Lipstick Information” takes the listener on a dark,
psychedelic and twisted journey through thrillingly intense arpeggiations. On the
flip we present two remixes. The first is from Steffi, House and Techno DJ and
producer born in The Netherlands and residing in Berlin. She picks up the pace for
an uplifting, percussion-driven, DAF-eque dystopian stomper. The second remix comes
from Michel Amato aka The Hacker, French born DJ and producer and frequent collaborator
with Miss Kittin. His early musical influences of bands such as Cabaret Voltaire,
Throbbing Gristle and Front 242 shine through on this pumping and sophisticated remix
ready for any dance floor.
All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The record comes in a custom-made jacket designed by Eloise Leigh featuring a
photograph by Corinne Schiavone printed with hi-gloss finish. Each copy includes
a postcard with with notes and image for fetish lovers.

DE      124     SPACE ART               NOUS SAVONS TOUT                12"     06.2016

SIDE 1  A       Nous Savons Tout
SIDE 2  B       Mélodie Moderne

Space Art was the French electronic duo of Dominique Perrier (keyboards, vocoder) and
Roger Rizzitelli (drums, percussion). Between 1977 and 1981, they released three
albums of comsic synth pop, in which they laid much groundwork for French electronic
music to follow. After their third album in 1981, they toured around the world with
Jean Michel Jarre in support for his “Concerts in China” album.
Space Art's third single “Nous Savons Tout” was released in 1978 on IF Records. Their
sound was similar to Jarre's early analog albums, but with the addition of real drums.
Dominique plays an ARP Odyssey, Clavinet, Eminent, and Minimoog, maximizing their warm
textures. Roger plays the drums in an intricate fashion, influenced subtly by jazz
fusion.  “Nous Savons Tout” features an early prototype of the Vocoder, which the
band used to create the chorus. On the flip is the slower "Melodie Moderne", an
electronic take on classical rock songs of the 1970s. Both tracks were recorded at
Studio Ferber Paris in June 1978. Like Richard Pinhas/Heldon and Yellow Magic
Orchestra, Space Art created their own brand of dark space disco, paving the way for
bands like Air and Mellow.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The record comes in a sleeve featuring the original cover art of a firefighter in
a knight-like pose, painted by Gilles Lacombe.  Each LP includes a postcard with liner
notes by surviving member Dominique Perrier. The sounds here evoke a Parisian noir
thriller set in a discotheque circa '78 - steamy and dark, equal parts erotic and
existentialist.

Axodry was the duo of Andreas “Talla 2XLC" Tomalla and Ralf "Ra/Hen" Henrich, who
formed in Frankfurt, Germany in 1982. The two met at City Music record store where
Talla 2XLC worked, supplying the local DJ scene with dance 12”s. From 1984 to 1991
they released six maxi 12” singles. Both members were leading figures in the European
electronic scene during the 80's and 90’s, forming bands like Bigod 20, Tribantura,
Micro Chip League, Moskwa TV, Pluuto and Robotiko Rejekto. 
In 1988 they released the maxi 12” single “You” on ZYX Records/Combeat. Influenced
by Depeche Mode, Gary Numan and John Foxx, the duo crafted high impact Industrial,
Synth Pop and Electronic Body Music. Their basic set up for recording at RaHen’s home
studio was a Moog Rouge, Roland SH-101, Teisco synthesizer, Linn Drum and Fricke
sequencer. Ra/Hen performed dramatic vocals, which tell of a lost love found in
dreams. Included here are the Beauty & The Beat Mix and the Beasty Dub Mix from the
1988 single. On the flip is the Razormaid Remix, performed by Art Maharg and Joseph
Watt, that originally appeared on the "Welcome To The Technodrome” compilation in
1989. Also included is “Mechanic”, originally released in 1991 as the B-side for
their final single “Losing You”.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The record comes in a sleeve featuring the original black and blue cover art with
hand-painted typography by Dr. Draw, The Gruesome Grapholoic. Each copy includes
a postcard with with notes. What Else Is There To Say?

SIDE B  3       JTC Remix                                       7:00

Series-A was the duo of Sam Anderson aka DJ Maestro and Dave Webb aka Kid Fresh. Sam
and Dave both grew up listening to the sounds of the Electrifying Mojo on WJLB in
Detroit. They met in 1983 at a DJ gig that they were both hired to play. In 1986,
they collaborated on the Nu-Sound II Crew project. After developing a friendship with
Juan Atkins, they became hip to the emerging new club sounds that were to become
electro and techno.Their subsequent project, Series-A, was named after different car
model numbers, but also hints at the evolution of humankind into a new species.
In 1987, Series-A recorded the single “Evolution  Technology” at Spectrum Sounds
Studio in St. Clair Shores, Michigan. Their set up was a vocoder, E-mu Emulator III,
Roland 909 drum machine, and an Otari 24-Track recorder. They landed a record deal
with Satellite Records in Burbank, California, which had been founded by Pete Moore
of The Miracles. After pressing 50 promotional copies, the label ran into financial
problems, and the record never reached a full release. Taking cues Kraftwerk, Grand
Master DST, Grandmaster Flash & Jam Master Jay, Series-A created dark electro beats
in an era when sampling appeared to be the future of music. Lyrically the song
addresses our species' entry into the technological age. For this EP reissue, the
7” Mix and Dub Mix are included on the A-side. On the flip is a new remix by prolific
Ann Arbor producer JTC, an alias of Tadd Mullinix (aka Dabrye, SK-1, & Charles Manier).
JTC speeds up and expands the song to seven minutes. Drawing on influences from Ron
Hardy to Jeff Mills, he drives around suburban techno landscapes while simultaneously
launching the listener into deep space.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The jacket is specially designed by Eloise Leigh and features a cyborg fossil motif
with RGB color band and gradients. Each copy includes a post card with with notes.

DE      127     NAGAMATZU               ABOVE THIS NOISE                12"     07.2016

SIDE A  1       Der Gute Kamerad (Life ’85 Version)

        3       Under The Roof

        3       Carmine (September 1986 Version)
        4       The Sunlight Home (Passions Organiques Version)

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 1980s as well as some
previously unreleased songs. The band’s working method was for Andrew to first 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.
All songs have been remastered from the original tapes for vinyl by George Horn at
Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. 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 D.I.Y. cassette
underground and restored, “Above This Noise” presents 9 Nagamaztu tracks for the first
time ever on vinyl.

                FLEXI DISC (SIDE C)
        1       I'm Coming (Live on WXPN 1980)

Executive Slacks began in the hot, humid summer of 1980 Philadelphia by Matt Marello,
John Young and Albert Ganss, three bored, broke, anxious art students. Starting out
with performance art in subways, they soon took their angst-ridden act to galleries
and night clubs. The band found their moniker in a run-down bookstore after seeing an
ad for men’s polyester pants. They pieced together sounds that captured the growing
paranoia of an age predicted by Orwell and the growing inequalities of the 1980s.
In 2014 we reissued their 4-song debut EP from 1982 and asked the band if they had any
demos. They excavated two cassettes that contained their earliest recorded material
from 1980 and 1981. "Seams Ruff" is a 13 song compilation from these cassette
collections plus a bonus flexi disc featuring a live performance on WXPN from 1980.
The tracks were created with the use of heavily modified synthesizers and noisemakers,
the broken innards of a grand piano, metal oil drums and a spray painted Harmony
Rocket guitar. The Slacks drew their influences from contemporaries like Cabaret
Voltaire, SPK and Tuxedomoon, as well as Disco and Dadaism. Dripping in nihilism, the
song’s lyrics tackle the existential dread of the late 20th century and three of the
songs are taken from “Mann ist Mann” a 1926 play by the German modernist author
Bertolt Brecht. Executive Slacks' unique brew of primitive electronics, harsh guitars
and aggressive vocals inspired many bands like Ministry, Front 242 and Skinny Puppy.
All songs were remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The front cover was designed by John Young and features an xeroxed black and white
photo of the group taken by Daniel Perry. Each copy includes an 11x11 double sided
hand-drawn insert by Matt Marello with lyrics, photos and a collage from the band’s
archives.

DE      129     BILL CONVERSE           WAREHOUSE INVOCATION            12"     07.2016

SIDE A  1       Warehouse Invocation
        2       Senys Magick
SIDE B  1       Riverbank
        2       Consulted Acid

Immersed in the early days of the 90s midwest rave scene, Bill Converse began DJing
at a young age in Lansing, Michigan. Luminaries such as Claude Young, Traxx, and
Twonz were key early influences. Since moving to Texas in 1998, he has experimented
with analog techniques in varied studio bunkers. Early techno, noise, ambient, tape,
and paranormal processing are all part of his uncanny sound palette.
“Warehouse Invocation” is Converse’s debut 12” release, collecting material from a
cassette release on Obsolete Future plus a new unreleased song. Three of the tracks,
“Warehouse Invocation”, “Senys Magick” and “Consulted Acid”, were recorded in Austin
TX between 2012-2013 at home and direct to tape with no overdubs or multi-tracking.
“Riverbank” was also recorded at home in early 2014 in one take with a mic placed
outside of the window to record the the sounds of the river late at night. Bill is
informed by his surroundings, influenced by scenes of desolation in nature, the sea,
the desert, and places of industry, like power stations, old factories, and warehouses.
The songs on this EP length reveal a sublime influence from Detroit techno, early
Chicago house, and Acid.
The album was recorded and mixed by Bill at his home studio in Austin and mastered
by Dave Alex. All songs were EQed for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in
Berkeley. A custom-made jacket designed by Eloise Leigh features a mystical collage
by Josua Dorje Ngodup with acid yellow hues on a deep blue-purple background. Each
copy includes a postcard with notes and a Buddhist mandala.

DE      130     THE POOL : DANCE IT DOWN/JAMAICA RUNNING                12"     09.2016

SIDE A  1       Dance It Down
        2       Dance In Dub

`SIDE B  1       Jamaica Running
        2       Jamaica Resting
        3       Jamaica Running (European Remix)

Patrick Keel is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer, and performer. The Pool
was his solo project, the sum of fifteen years of experience in live bands, studios,
and home recording. Patrick was heavily influenced by the radio of the early and mid
1960’s in Dallas. The British bands and Black soul of the era gave him a distinct
style, and shaped his musical attitude. The New Wave/Punk/D.I.Y. attitudes of the late
1970s inspired him to express himself in a new way. 1980 saw the release of "Pool
One," a sixty minute home-produced cassette. "Pool Two" followed in 1981, which
received much praise and little distribution. In 1982 he released a 5-song self-titled
vinyl EP of tight, skeletal, synthetic dance music.
In 1983, “Dance It Down/Jamaica Running” 12” EP was released on Moment Productions.
Based on response from D.J.’s in New York and the Bronx, Patrick went back in the
studio and remixed two songs from the self-titled EP for rapping, scratching and break
dancing. "Jamaica Resting" was sped-up, extended, and reconfigured as "Jamaica Running"
 The whirlpool synth-strut of “Dance It Down” came out of the studio as “Dance In Dub”,
 with a heavier kick and extended dub outro. These spacious versions were optimal for
 DJ play, slotting regularly in sets at hip clubs like Danceteria. For this reissue
 we’ve added two bonus European remixes from the 1984 12” of “Dance It Down/Jamaica
 Running”, released on Nunk records from Belgium. Both songs employ the use of a Boss
 DR-55, Korg MS-20, Korg PolySix, and a Prophet 5, and were mixed on a 16- track Ampex
 recorder. The Pool's spartan, self-assured songs are experiments you can dance to.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The record comes housed in a newly designed jacket by Eloise Leigh, updating the
magenta and blue grid and Pool logo of the Moment Productions release. Each copy incl.
a 12-page booklet with a never seen before photos, press clippings and notes.

DE      131     EXPANSIVES              LIFE WITH YOU                   12"     09.2016

SIDE A  1       Life With You (Vocal Version)
SIDE B  1       Life With You (Instrumental Version)

Gianluigi “Gigi” Farina and Francesco Rago are to be counted among Italo disco's true
originators. Operating as a duo under many monikers, they brought us masterpieces such
as Wanexa's “The Man From Colours”, ‘Lectric Workers' “Robot Is Systematic”, and
Decadance's “On And On”. Their sound is propulsive and ethereal in equal measure
- dense, psychedelic, and tinged with melancholy. Their first composition was under
the name Expansives. 
“Life With You” was recorded in Milan in 1981 and released on Leader Records in 1982,
and features then 16-year old Xenia Monneret on lyric-writing duties. They wanted to
incorporate a more electronic sound to break the classic disco mold, and in the
process, they created an early, raw example of what would come to be known as Italo
Disco. A thumping bass synth and processed drums set the groove, while Francesco sings
of his loneliness. Tension is released when he later breaks into a Bee Gees-esque
falsetto, but in the context of such an unusual song, the uncanny becomes familiar,
the familiar becomes uncanny. Unfortunately they were not able to afford a professional
recording studio and had to re-record each take over the same reel of tape. This caused
a subtle surface noise buzz that adds to the warm analog feel of the song. On the
B-side is the instrumental version with extended breaks, drum claps and dubbed out
bass lines.
Both songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in
Berkeley. The record comes housed in a newly designed die-cut jacket by Eloise Leigh,
updating the orange and green color scheme of the original. Each copy includes a double
-side postcard insert with lyrics, notes, and a never seen before photo from a fashion
show.

DE      132     WANEXA                  THE MAN FROM COLOURS            12"     09.2016

SIDE A  1       The Man From Colours 
SIDE B  1       The Man From Colours (Instrumental Version)

Gianluigi “Gigi” Farina and Francesco Rago are to be counted among Italo disco's true
originators. Operating as a duo under many monikers, they brought us masterpieces such
as Wanexa's “The Man From Colours”, ‘Lectric Workers' “Robot Is Systematic”, and
Decadance's “On And On”. Their sound is propulsive and ethereal in equal measure -
dense, psychedelic, and tinged with melancholy.
“The Man From Colours” was recorded in Milan in 1982 and released on Discomagic
Records the same year. The song’s music was composed by Rago and Farina, with lyrics
written by Xenia Monneret, who was only 16 at the time. Mournful synth pads are buoyed
by an 808 groove, while Lyana Galis provides haunting vocals, singing of a man who will
bring color to this grey world. “The Man From Colours” was influential on early House
and Techno music thanks to support from WBMX in Chicago and and WJLB in Detroit. It
was later a cornerstone in the 90's Hague electro scene, frequently appearing in DJ
sets by I-F and Intergalactic Gary. On the B-side is the instrumental version with
extended breaks, drum claps and additional vocoder verses. There is a slight warble
in the beginning of each version that was due to the band re-recording multiple takes
on the same reel of tape.
Both songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in
Berkeley. The record comes housed in a newly designed die-cut jacket by Eloise Leigh,
updating the pink and green color scheme of the original Discomagic Records label.
Each copy includes a double-sided postcard insert with lyrics, notes, and a never seen
before photo from a fashion show.

DE      133     JAGO                    I'M GOING TO GO                 12"     09.2016

SIDE A  1       I’m Going To Go 
        2       I’m Going To Go (Instrumental) 
SIDE B  1       I’m Going To Go (Plant Mix by Frankye Knuckles)

Jago was the studio project of Michele Violante created in Milan, Italy in 1983. The
line-up also included Luciana Cirrillo aka Kynsha, who wrote lyrics and sang back up
vocals. The name Jago comes from Iago,
the main antagonist in Shakespeare's ‘Othello’. In those years, Michele produced a lot
of songs and published material for Full Time Records. 
“I’m Going To Go” was recorded at Forum Studio in Rome in 1983 and released on Full
Time the same year. He made an electro-funk demo with a Gibson Les Paul, but during
practice the song became soulful funk but arranged with new wave electronics. The song
revolves around a slick atmospheric bassline, driving electronic percussion, and tight
rhythm guitar and synths. The setup for the recording was a Casiotone MT-40 keyboard,
Boss DR-55 and Sequential Circuits Drumtraks drum machines, an Akai cassette recorder,
and a Revox A77 for multi-tracking. Lead vocals were done by session musician Bruno
Kassar, delivering Kynsha’s playful lyrics along to the lead melody. Also on the A-side
is the Instrumental Version which became a hit in New York after Larry Levan played it
repeatedly at the Paradise Garage. Full Time asked Levan's long time friend Frankie
Knuckles to make a remix. It was released in 1985 as the “Plant Mix”, and is included
here on the B-side. This was Frankie’s first released remix, although the record label
misspelled his name as ’Frankye'.  The remix clocks in at over 8 minutes, and is a dub
edit made using the stereo master of the instrumental track.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The record comes housed in a newly designed die-cut jacket by Eloise Leigh, updating
the purple and blue color scheme of the original Full Time label. Each copy includes
a double-sided postcard insert with lyrics, notes, and a never seen before photo of
Kynsha from 1982.

        2       Polar Magazine
SIDE B  1       Flucht '84
        2       Sacred Time

Zwischenfall formed in Belgium in 1982 with Michael Sass (synths), Martin Urban (bass/
vocals) and Stephan Kraemer (guitar/drums). They were united by their interest in
combining  electronic and traditional instruments, which developed the basis for 1982
demo recordings. By chance Patrick Codenys of the Belgian electro pioneers Front 242,
heard two songs and decided to record a 4-song EP. The “Heute” EP was released in 1983
after a week of recording in Front 242's private studio under the direction of sound
-whiz Daniel B.
In 1984 Martin Urban left the band and was replaced by vocalist Iben Larssen and
bassist Thomas Kürsten. They recorded their second 12” single, “Sandy Eyes”,  which
contained a remake of their song “Fluct”, sung in the English this time. Some fairly
revolutionary techniques were used, including the introduction of sampling (with an
Emulator I and Ensoniq Mirage), and ‘gated reverb’, in which the sound of a large
reverb room was processed through a Yamaha CS15's envelope  follower. This record was
originally released in 1984 on both Les Disques du Crépuscule and Fuzz Dance, packaged
in three different covers.  Our reissue EP features two bonus tracks from the 1984
recording sessions previously unreleased on vinyl: the saxophone drenched instrumental 
“Polar Magazine” and street beat dance track  “Sacred Time”.
All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
The record comes housed in a newly designed die-cut jacket by Eloise Leigh, updating
the magenta and yellow color scheme of the Fuzz Dance release. Each copy includes
a double-sided insert with lyrics, notes, and never seen before photos.
