Cluster, Fripp / Eno, Heldon, Conrad Schnitzler, Neu!, Throbbing Gristle, Ilitch, Irmin
Schmidt, Amon Düül II…

MENT    003     RED SQUARE : RARE AND LOST 70'S RECORDINGS              LP      04.2016

Ultra-rare recordings by '70s UK avant-rockers Red Square, the missing link between
original free-noise practitioners like AMM, Nihilist Spasm Band, and Peter Brotzmann
and post-no wavers a la The Blue Humans, Borbetomagus, Fushitsusha, and The Dead C.
Named after the early Soviet Constructivists, Red Square is a pioneering free-improv.,
avant-rock band. They bridged the worlds of psychedelic rock, noise, and avant-jazz,
and many of the techniques and approaches to music that they helped to pioneer have
become common practice today. Predating Sonic Youth by seven years.

Mental Experience present an expanded reissue of Voigt/465's 1979 album Slights Spoken,
titled Slights Still Unspoken (1978-1979). Formed in Sydney in 1976, Voigt/465 was a
truly unique band from the exciting days of the Australian post-punk scene. Heavily
influenced by such luminaries as the Velvets, Stooges, Syd Barrett, Pere Ubu, Can,
Faust, Henry Cow, Slapp Happy, and Eno's Roxy Music, they created an abrasive sound
in which krautrock, DIY, avant-garage, post-punk, psych, art-rock, and free improv
noise combined to form a sound unlike any other. In 1978, they released one of the
first DIY 45s from Australia, State/A Secret West, which showed their "pop-psych"
side and was played by John Peel in the UK. The following year, their bass player
Lindsay O'Meara decided to leave the band and join Crime & The City Solution in
Melbourne. Before parting ways, Voigt/465 decided to record one last album as a
testament. Slights Spoken saw the light in 1979 and it's without doubt one of the
most fascinating albums from the post-punk/DIY era. The entire album is featured
here, including the two tracks from their first 45. Includes download coupon which
features three live tracks from '78-79, including killer covers of Faust, Can, and
Roxy Music. RIYL: Can, Faust, Pere Ubu, Roxy Music, Family Fodder, The Homosexuals,
Slapp Happy, This Heat, Pop Group, Primitive Calculators. Remastered sound; Insert
with rare photos and liner notes by band member Phil Turnbull.
