FIRST IN A SERIES OF DELUXE FOETUS RELATED RE-ISSUES
In an age when terms like "alternative" and "independent" get bandied about corporate boardrooms as mere mass-market packaging slogans, it takes an artist as rare as Jim Thirlwell (FOETUS) to inject some meaning into what is so casually labeled "the underground." With his history of relentless aesthetic terrorism and committed cultural subversion, Thirlwell is one of the most independent thinkers on the music scene today, a much-needed alternative to "alternative rock" itself. Linking up with Some Bizarre in the early eighties Thirwell adopted the “Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel” moniker for the release of two of his most well know early albums “Hole” and “Nail” in ‘84 & ‘85 respectively. With a collision of electronics, tape loops and harsh beats and vocals these albums helped define the burgeoning underground industrial scene in London at the time. With lovingly restored artwork under direct supervision from Thirwell himself these two albums are now available in deluxe digi packs which do the original LP’s artwork justice like no CD issue has ever done. Both albums have also been re-mastered by SCOTT HULL (Herbie Hancock, David Bowie etc.) to bring out the best in these milestone releases freeing them from the bad CD mastering these titles have suffered from in the past.

MARC ALMOND REISSUES....

Marc Almond - Torment and Toreros

click on album cover to buy from Genepool

Marc Almond initially shot to fame in the early 1980s as one half of synth duo Soft Cell, whose combination of drama and peep show sleaze set to

an electronic beat gave them hits such as "Tainted Love" (UK #1), "Bedsitter" (UK #3), "Torch" (UK #2), "Say Hello Wave Goodbye" (UK #3), "Soul

Inside" (UK # 16), "What?" (UK #3) and the club hit "Memorabilia". Almond also went on to be a highly succesful solo artist and now his these

classic albums are available again, re-issued on Some Bizarre.

Torment and Toreros is the second album to be released by Marc and the Mambas. It also is the last album to go under the name "Marc and the Mambas".

A multiplicity of sound layers pierced by one single beat. That would be a simple definition to describe the complexity but straightforwardness of the music from this band from Osaka. However, there is no special Japanese flavor here, and it would be best if we could please once and for all retire these tired cliches.

Los Satanicpornocultshop chucks a puzzling, destabilizing and futuristic hip hop. One of the main features of this band is that they make music gush from the most arid field recording session. Give a Stanley knife or a red-bear shaped lighter to Ugh, and he?fll make it swing in a snap. Ugh is a real human sampler, a junk sound edit virtuoso. And that is undoubtedly Satanicpornocultshop main strength. Just ad to that an immense musical culture, a taste for ultimate groove and pop music satire, and you will have a pretty good idea of what makes that band so unique.

MEKA RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM ON LEGENDARY LABEL SOME BIZZARE!!!
MEKA is the latest project from Max Durante and his long time collaborator Key (Ketty Boccia, Koffeebuzz). A veteran of the European dance scene Max Durante started his career in 1986 mixing Acid House and freestyle around Italy. Through his love of hip hop he began to integrate scratching into his sets and an eclectic choice of tunes. This lead him to be named “The Wizard Of The Decks”. In 1991 he began producing and since then has worked with names such as D’ARCANGELO (Reflex), DJ HELL and KEITH TUCKER releasing records on labels all over Europe. He also runs his own internet only record label “PRODAMKEY”. He has also performed at some of the most major dance festivals throughout Europe including the BIOS FESTIVAL in Athens, DISTORSONIE in Bologna & the BIT:Z FESTIVAL in Rome. MEKA was born of a collaboration between Key and Max around 1999. Since the pair has released a number of releases through their own Prodmakey imprint. However now they have made the move to legendary Dance/Industrial label SOME BIZZARE for the release of their debut album. Lead by a mix of minimalist sexy house and electronica with suggestive, distinct and sometimes risque vocals from Key. This album is the soundtrack to your sexy summer!!!
The album also includes a hard house remix of “High Heeled Shoes” by one of Ireland’s top remixers YER MAN (also available on 12” – SBZ050) as part of the bonus tracks; this amazing tune has gained loads of attention from Radio 1 and is to be played out on ANNIE MAC’s show and PETE TONG’s “Essential Selection”. Expect to hear it spinning in a club near you soon!! All this goes together to make possibly the most essential dance album of the year!!

Bully

METAL HAMMER

This techno-minded industrial duo seem bent on the marriage of creepy, mechanised atmospherics with a furious dance sensibility that sounds like a shoe-in soundtrack for a robot fight-sequence. Pumping beats, machine-like samples and howling guitars combine to create an angry sound that's both infectious and ever so slightly scary - in a good way. Short of a riot, it's doubtful you'll hear a more manic or angry sound this year.

British synthesizer player Dave Ball is one half of Soft Cell, along with Marc Almond, starting in October 1979. Before that duo took a long break in December 1983, he made one solo album, In Strict Tempo. Originally released in 1983 the album was a leftfield masterpiece, featuring a plethora of guest musicians including GAVIN FRIDAY and the mercurial GENESIS P. ORRIDGE with Dave Ball acting as producer, multi instrumentalist and main vocals. The album was also mixed by enigmatic british producer FLOOD (known for his sucessful work with U2, DEPECHE MODE and SMASHING PUMPKINS).

Dave Ball has worked on numerous high profile projects - including (being one half of pioneering techno duo'The Grid') and 'Nitewreckers'.

ZGA VS FIGS

"Who Has Stolen The Air?"

http://www.myspace.com/zgafigs

Juno Download Link

ZGA is a unique phenomenon in Russian post-rock music. There’s never been a band that would for so long, so consistently and with such dogged perseverance and dedication pursue the non-compromised approach to music. ZGA pretty much equals Nick Sudnick. Throughout countless personnel changes Nick has always been there - the mind, the heart, the soul, the creator and inventor of this unparalleled music. On first listen ZGA’s music is by no means sounded obsolete but obscure it very well is: asymmetrical rhythms, hardly any melody, distorted guitar paired with Nick’s homemade instruments. The result is an apotheosis of rhythmic industrial sound. “ZGA” is a very obscure, obsolete, and peculiar Russian word. It means something really miniscule and in the contemporary language it survived only as a part of an expression "ni zgi ne vidno" - “pitch dark”. FIGS is an acronym that stands for the names of four musicians: apart from bandleaders Sudnick and Fedorova there are two drummers: Alexei Ivanov and Marcus Godwyn (a Brit who has lived in St. Petersburg for many years now)

Test Dept

"The Unacceptable Face of Freedom"

Test Dept were an industrial music band formed in New Cross, London, by unemployed musicians (including Alastair Adams, Paul Jamrozy, Angus Farquhar, Graham Cunnington, Tony Cudlip, Toby Burdon and Paul Hines) from Glasgow, Scotland, where the band later re-located. Formed in 1981, they are hailed by many musicians as one of the most influential early industrial music acts. Their approach was marked out by a strong commitment to radical politics. Their discography spans a wide variety of influences and styles, including a collaboration with the South Wales Striking Miners Choir in support of the Miners' Strike of 1984. They were particularly notable for complex and powerful percussion, as well as high-energy live performances. Like the German band Einstürzende Neubauten, with whom they are often compared, Test Dept used unconventional instruments such as scrap metal and industrial machinery as sound sources; however, Test Dept's use of these objects was far more rhythmic than was Neubauten's, and was often accompanied by film and slide shows. Continuing the re-issue of their extensive back catalogue Some Bizarre present here 2 classic albums from the band’s 80’s incarnation. Both re-issued in Dig packs like the other releases on the label such as FOETUS and NEUBAUTEN. Essential for any collector of early industrial!!!

GL1TCHG0R3 is unusual in that they are primarily a “virtual’ band formed by Ted Bell and Patrick Chauncey, conceived, executed, marketed, discovered and signed before the two band members ever actually met in person. They formed in June of 2007, and within a few weeks developed a large underground following. GL1TCHG0R3 (glitch - gore) was born out of an experiment to create a new fusion of sound somewhere between hip-hop, improvisational jazz fusion, noise, IDM and glitch. Stumped at how to proceed with this task, they invoked Eris the goddess of chaos through song, art, insanity and an organ donation. The Mother of mechanized music was indeed pleased - so pleased that she plucked out her right eye, and created the most terrifying weapon of mass destruction in the universe to take its place among us. Thus Gearball, also known affectionately as Mister Twinkles, came to become the band's whimsical cyclopean mascot. Travel with Mister Twinkles and his friends through a wild acoustic romp into the depths of cosmic chaos. And if you listen closely, betwixt the screams of the undead and alien tribal rhythms, you'll hear the dancing laughter of Eris grinding away at the humming rotors of creation.

Gary Lucas Vs The Dark Poets "Beyond the pale" is is out now on SOME BIZZARE RECORDS

 

 Gary Lucas vs The Dark Poets, Beyond the Pale (Some Bizzare)

(Rated 8/ 10 )

His work with Jeff Buckley and Captain Beefheart probably makes Gary Lucas the worlds most popular avant-rock guitarist, though his solo work can lack focus. Here, his solo pieces mingle with tracks recorded with electronic composer James R Hunter, aka The Dark Poets, whose samplescapes, synth beds and vocal samples about things like military mind-control techniques recall the dark portents of Cabaret Voltaire. Highlights include a resonant cover of part of Popol Vuhs Aguirre, Wrath of God soundtrack; an exhilarating "Judgement at Midnight" incorporating swirling National steel guitar phrases over a synth drone bed pockmarked with found-sound fragments; "Breath of Bones", a delicate tangle of guitar tendrils; and "Teds Theme", a lovely sequenced samba-shuffle burnished with glinting guitar. Solo showcases include the glistening Frippertronic-style guitar tones of "Rosemarys Baby" and the almost electric-flamenco flurries of "Rise Up To Be".

Pick of the album:The Judgement at Midnight, Teds Theme, Aguirre and Rosemarys Baby.

March Terrorizer Magazine

Reviewed By Sam Rackman for the Darkside Round up - The Latest in Gothic, Industrial and EBM releases

"When it comes to eclectic; post-punk Gary Lucas Vs The Dark Poets knows where its at. Beyond The Pale, Released through Some Bizarre, is a collaboration between the Grammy nominated/one time Captain Beefheart guitarist and the British electronica outfit. The result flits between sounding like Tubeway Army remixed for the 21st century and Nick Cave playing acid-infused bluegrass."

Review from Uncut Magazine

GARY LUCAS VS DARK POETS BEYOND THE PALE

"Ex-Beefheart/Jeff Buckley collaborator and Gods and Monsters stalwart Lucas has dabbled in soundtracks, and breakbeat outfit Dark Poets are best known for scoring Cradle of Fear, so there is common ground between their approaches, its a fearful rush of sound, with Lucas’ spidery guitar above the Poets’ neurotic electronica, and the Grid's remix of "The Judgement At Midnight" packs a punch!"

redefining the prologue...

History of the Future...

Some Bizzare Records is a British independent record label founded by Stevø. Beginning as a DJ in London, He launched the label in 1981 with the groundbreaking LP entitled "Some Bizzare Album" which included such acts as: Soft Cell, Blancmange, Depeche Mode, B.Movie, and The The.

Some Bizzare Records has introduced the public to some of the most interesting, cutting edge and innovative music. Early bands included B-Movie, The The and Soft Cell. Followed shortly by the signing of Cabaret Voltaire and Psychic TV, Test Department, Einstürzende Neubauten, Coil, Swans, and Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel. In October 2006, "Redefining the Prologue" was released on Some Bizzare Universal to mark the label's 25th anniversary. This compilation album was designed to blend the History with the Future- intertwining tracks recorded in the 80’s with those of the 21st century.

Now we find ourselves at the dawn of a new era. 2008 heralds the release of a 37 track double album filled with all new artists along with the long awaited re-release of the 1981 "Some Bizzare Album". In the creation of the double album entitled: "The Only Failure is to Cease to Try", Some Bizzare set out to explore the vast, untapped creative potential of MySpace, through this virtual frontier with the intent of unearthing acts that may have otherwise escaped notice.

Dim the lights, sit back, and take a deep breath.

The Grid are Dave Ball and Richard Norris. They formed in 1988 at the height of Acid House, releasing as their first single, the Balearic classic 'Floatation', in 1990, before notching up a string of increasingly successful albums -'Electric Head', '456', 'Evolver', 'Music For Dancing' - and ten hit singles, including 'Crystal Clear, 'Rollercoaster' 'Texas Cowboys' and the million selling 'Swamp Thing'. The band toured worldwide and remixed and produced numerous artists including Brian Eno, Pet Shop Boys, Happy Mondays and many more. After a break in the nineties, the Grid reformed in 2004, playing their first gig in a decade in 2006 at the Coronet in London. "DOPPELGANGER" is their first album since 1995, and features the trademark Grid sound -sweeping, atmospheric electronics and hook laden melodies, fast forwarding into the future. A welcome return.

KINKY ELECTRO AND QUIRKY POP FROM VIBRANT FRENCH/WELSH DUO

Oozing sensuality and provocative energy, Risqué emerge from the erotic underworld with their Pedro Almodovar inspired debut album, Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down, on the revered Some Bizarre label.

Risqué – French vixen Nathalie and her Welsh husband Huw – combine their lavish soundscapes with a series of incredible collaborations from the likes of dance pop diva Billie Ray Martin and New York City’s legendary transsexual sexbomb and muse of David LaChapelle, Amanda Lepore.

The album’s title track, Tie Me Up Tie Me Down showcases Nathalie’s ethereal vocals (in French and English) astride classic electro rhythms while Push The Button with Billie Ray Martin is a rock n’ synth pop anthem in the making.

I Want Your Number is a futuristic combination of pure dancefloor energy and the confused mathematics of love: ‘6% pneumatic 60% politic 20% chemistry, 90% destiny’ coos Nathalie.

“This track wasn’t written for Marilyn, it was written for me!” says Amanda Lepore, of Marilyn, the track she guests on. An ode to the celebrity culture of chasing money, youth and ‘VIP utopia’ with echoes of the Pet Shop Boys, it’s a guaranteed hit.

Elsewhere, Risqué give their unique take on Talking Heads’ Psychokiller and Velvet Underground’s S&M anthem Venus In Furs. With provocative tracks like Plastic Lover and Deshabille Toi, rounding up an accomplished debut album, listening is a seductive and sensual experience..

Pedro INF is an alterego of Pedro Granja De Carvalho, a musician whose main style can be categorized as IDM, braindance, or experimental electronic music. He began recording at the end of the 1980s when he was a member of the industrial Portuguese band from 1989-1994 named Ode Filipica.

Pedro INF was using early computers for music, around
1986 he was using a Timex Sinclair computer. Today, Pedro INF is using a range of vintage recording equipment and analog synthesizers, electronic percussion and drum machines, avoiding the use of computers where circuit bending is the rule. In 2007 Pedro INF signed to Some Bizzare Records. His first album was released by Some Bizzare Records SBZ 079CD "pedro inf." The label boss, Stevo Pearce (ex-manager of Soft Cell) also included a Pedro INF track, "The Strategy Of The Spider in The Wire," on the new "Some Bizzare Double Album" to be released on 2008. Stevo Pearce is credited as executive producer of the album.

PEDRO INF is Pedro De Carvalho, Tired of the current output of the electronic and post industrial music scenes, whose innovation has regressed to pre conceived ideas about music production, PEDRO INF is taking lead from the pioneers such as Kandinsky , Miro ,Coil , Test Department, Richard D James (Aphex Twin) & mu-ziq. Designing and building his own effects, computers and programs PEDRO INF has created his own self styled "sonar paintings", he believes that ART does not need humans at all to exist, in his own words "there is no need for a receptor and the need of a receptor is only because we cannot escape the human condition of egocentrism" ticking the boxes that this enigmatic producer has the madness to pull of his unique brand of electronica "The first goal of Pedro INF is to see the painting and not remember how it was done

AMAZING DOUBLE CD RE-ISSUE OF 4 SWANS EARLY ALBUMS!!!

This is the digipack repressing of the double CD, with booklet and 6 page digipack...nice!

Crawling out of the same noisy, arty New York underground that sired SONIC YOUTH and LYDIA LUNCH, Swans created a dark, abrasive, murky, slowed-down noise rock that served as a starting point for their ruminations about alienation, depression, depravity, and the disturbing side of human nature. Singers Michael Gira and Jarboe have been the group's only constants over the years; Gira has taken the group from its early confrontational shock tactics to a more varied, mature attack. The band first appeared on record in 1982 with a self-titled EP, and these early releases document their search for the musical vocabulary to express their ideas effectively. Female singer Jarboe joined the group for 1986's Holy Money and brought a gentler, more relaxed dimension to Swans' sound.

“The Swans are the only band in the universe. There is no other sonic experience of such incredible power and magnitude to be found anywhere. That is an absolute fact.” - ATTITUDE (USA)

“Swans can confidently be described as nothing short of a miracle” - NME

“Swans are like some elite combat group. Abandoning conventional concepts of pitch and melody, they strip rock and roll to the barest bones. Power, urgency, excitement. This is no pose” - THE VILLAGE VOICE

The MFF vs Evil Dead

 

Monkey Farm Frankenstein is a pair of young horror-obsessed malcontents who write, perform, engineer, record, program, edit, produce, mix, and master their own unique style of industrial hip hop music. Gathering samples in the dark and rainy streets of Portland, Oregon, they construct their subhuman breakbeat monster from unearthed pieces of cult horror films and dead LPs, dusty stacks of videotapes and aging analog synthesizers. The MFF invoke the hip hop influences in early Skinny Puppy and Ministry records, combining the sampledelic breakbeat sound of The Prodigy and Chemical Brothers with the funky chaos of Meat Beat Manifesto and Public Enemy. Monkey Farm Frankenstein dominate their machines, not the other way around, infusing every track with meanace and humor. Like the best horror films, the MFF balances their dark and aggressive nature with a sense of black comedy that lightens the tone and brings an audience into the fun. Combined with the pop-song structure of their songwriting, the MFF is both edgy and accessible.

Kontour - Scanners (CD Some Bizarre Records)

www.side-line.com
David Hunt aka Kontour is an English artist who has already been active for more than 20 years now. He for sure is a musician who remains faithful to a sort of early electronic tradition reminding me of the 80s. More than once “Scanners” evokes some early and good old Cabaret Voltaire memories. Especially the 2 debut songs are really cool and essential. There’s this brute electronic construction made with instruments like a Moog or MXR effect processor. It creates these typical electronic vibes while the good-old rhythm box percussion sound only reinforce the 80s feeling. The male vocal parts are pretty zombie-like, but totally fitting in to the music. “The Kennedy Syndrome” and “Loose Wire” are definitely strong openers. I’m not affirming that after such a great debut the album slowly stagnates, but it’s just that the other tracks left are less convincing. “Pressure Point” is a track that brings the album again to a higher level. Kontour also reveals a more experimental side, which brings some diversity, but less new high lights. It doesn’t take away that this album will for sure please the lovers of early Cabaret Voltaire and other bands in the same line.

FINAL PARTS IN A SERIES OF DELUXE FOETUS RELATED RE-ISSUES
In an age when terms like "alternative" and "independent" get bandied about corporate boardrooms as mere mass-market packaging slogans, it takes an artist as rare as Jim Thirlwell (FOETUS) to inject some meaning into what is so casually labeled "the underground." With his history of relentless aesthetic terrorism and committed cultural subversion, Thirlwell is one of the most independent thinkers on the music scene today, a much-needed alternative to "alternative rock" itself. Linking up with Some Bizarre in the early eighties Thirwell adopted the “Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel” moniker for the release of two of his most well know early albums “Hole” and “Nail” in ‘84 & ‘85 respectively (already re-issued by SOME BIZARRE this year!). Later adopting “FOETUS INTERRUPTUS” for the “THAW album in 1988 and “FOETUS INC.” for the “”SINK” album (collecting together rare and compilation/collaboration tracks). With a collision of electronics, tape loops and harsh beats and vocals Foetus’ albums helped define the underground industrial scene in London throughout the eighties and has remained (if indirectly) a large influence on the scenes development. With lovingly restored artwork under direct supervision from Thirwell himself these two albums are now available in deluxe digi packs which do the original LP’s artwork justice like no CD issue has ever done.
