One of my favourite bands and one of their most understated albums. You can still hear echoes from MASS, Rema Rema & In Camera on this 1983 debut.

Awesome cover by the always uncompromising Sleep Chamber. Promo only red vinyl 7” from 1991.

Pulled this gem off the shelf today. The 1987 debut of Canadian industrial/experimental band Numb. Produced by the one and only Dave Ogilvie with a couple tracks co-written my half of Moev. One of their best. Didn’t much care for anything they did after 1990 though. Great album nonetheless.

Kraftwerk “Neon-Lights” 12” from 1978. Yes, the vinyl glows in the dark!!!

Next to “Front by Front” my favorite Front 242 album. First Belgian pressing. RRE MK2.

The original sounds pretty damn good!

Old SPK is the best. Love the Auto Da-fé vinyl!

Old school Projekt Records cassette compilation from 1989. Xerox sleeve and all. So underground!

A little shameless self plug here:

My moody, post-punk, minimal wave, industrial synthy project L’Avenir releases it’s debut album “The Wait” today on Barcelona’s Cold Beats Records. It’s available now on CD/Digital with a vinyl edition to come VERY soon. If you’re into cold dark music and like it, spread the word :-)

One of my favourite Current 93 albums. Limited edition blue vinyl I bought in Pittsburgh at this tiny shop called Aziz back in the 90’s. The owner had an, almost unhealthy, obsession with the band Sleep Chamber.

"Brian Jones died for your sins"

Been busy and haven’t posted in a while but look what came in the mail today. Beautiful hardback monograph!!! It’s worth the price alone just for the the photos of the original Discreet Music tape recorders and EMS VCS3 all lined up, just like the diagram on the vinyl, on the floor in his studio. Total nerd moment ;-)

Just unearthed from a box in my basement is this excellent spoken word video meme of Genesis. It was originally made for the Pharmakon gathering in Brighton England circa 1993-94 then released as a limited edition shortly after. I thought I had lost it while moving around a lot in the early 90’s. Recorded shortly after the Scotland Yard mess and Gen’s exile in Northern California. Great stuff!!!

Pretty cool vinyl only compilation from around 1984 featuring the Industrial Records roster.
