The Anti Group - Digitaria -- I just got a bundle of free Ambisonic Recording plug-ins for my DAW, which included a decoder that translates Ambisonic recording into Binaural... So as Adi Newton was the first to use Ambisonic technology I used the decoder playing back Digitaria. Amazing!

The Durutti Column -- the Return Of... and LC

Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures

Young Marble Giants - Colossal Youth

Teardrop Explodes - Reward b/w Strange House in the Snow 7"

Limbo Race - Down and Backwards 7"

Brainbombs - Souvenirs -- I think this is their most recent and my copy is a limited edition. Still good musically but the vocals lack much focus it seems, in spite of the nastiness still being intact...

Hi FBC. What's the verdict on this? Still not heard it myself.

Hard to make a judgement, as 'Lodger' is an album I've only recently started to fully appreciate, and after playing it again on the original vinyl I thought I'd give the new mix a listen on Spotify Web Player after having read about it in Mojo last year. So firstly it's not an album I've immersed myself in enough to detect major differences, but apparently Visconti pulled out all sorts of things that got lost in the original mix. And secondly, the quality on Spotify seemed to lack the crispness I assumed the new version would have, so maybe you need to get the actual box set for the full effect. I imagine if you know the original inside out the new version would be quite revelatory.

This week has mostly been, whilst stuck in with the bleedin' snow, still hobbling around on dodgy knee, and alleviating the boredom by making scale model jets and tanks and watching crap TV and films....

D.A.F. - Ein Produkt Der Deutsch-Amerikanischen-Freundshaft
Been a big 'electro' D.A.F. fan fer years, but was never really aware of this, so never played their debut before. Have the live Die Klienen und Die Bosen LP, which is a wonderful din and touches on stuff from their debut, but Wow!, this really blew me away. Kinda Faust Tapes in execution, in being short half formed ideas alongside (slightly) more realised songs. Don't know if they were aware of that NY noise thang in 1979, but deffo nails that No-Wave sound. Bild 7 sounds like proto Sonic Youth circa Confusion is Sex, and Bild 8 is early Swans (well almost). Lovin' It! Album ...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=os_a0AybDJM

D.A.F. - Feur Immer
Das Kinder Funk!

Sonic Youth - Confusion Is Sex/Kill Your Idols

Bush Tetras - Boom In The Night
Cowboys in Africa - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FUJ9Zq1HGaM

Malaria! - Compiled 81'-84'
Heavy goth tinged post punk from Berlin. Was aware of the 'Your Turn To Run' track from the 'So Low' post punk comp from a few years back (plus the film Atomic Blonde and TV show Deutschland 83') but the rest was unknown to me. Some good stuff, though a few duffers too. You can see where Xmal Deutchland nicked some of their sound from.
Compiled - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETnUg-UsMD4

La Conta Ola - Sythwave and Postpunk from Spain 80-86
Some great stuff on this comp. Some pure cheese, but some real great sounds as well. Particular fav is Tod oTodo - Autogas Dunno if it's daft or genius. Some great use of the MS 10/20 style radiophonic electronic scronks on some of these tracks. Album - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzxTCtQtBZ0

Fad Gadget - Fireside Favourites/ Best of
Fad Gadget, what's not to like! Coitus Interuptus is probably my fav from this album. Coitus - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVfXFrjBdqI
Back To Nature - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoVJhr9yd40

Hawkwind - Into The Woods

Wire - Silver/Lead

Uncut comp - Sonic Truth
Saw this on Keith A's list a few weeks ago and thought it looked a tasty track list, so picked up a copy fer 99p on ebay. Don't really buy music mags anymore, as the two big noises available (Mojo/Uncut) seem to rehash the same articles over and over ad nauseum. Nice running order, and a nice mix of familiar and not heard, well worth the punt.

Well, that's about it, off to weather my 'Russian Winter' Tiger 1.....oooh get me, I can tell you can hardly contain your excitment!

Main replays for this week:

Jean-Michel Jarre - Zoolook

During my pre-teen obsession with M. Jarre's bouncy electronics I never had Zoolook for some reason, but it was reissued a couple of years ago and I finally caught up. It's actually pretty great, the opening five minutes could have come from Vangelis' Blade Runner soundtrack, there's some neat electro (Zoolookologie is practically Bobby O), some artiness a la Laurie Anderson and pieces constructed from lots of little cut-up samples.

Jean-Michel Jarre - Electronica 1: The Time Machine

His return to the fray from 2015, all collaborations. At 16 tracks it's probably 6 or 7 tracks too long, but there are some great songs here (yes, it's got actual singing on much of it). I particularly like the Vince Clarke "Automatic" and the stuff with Tangerine Dream, Moby, John Carpenter and Fuck Buttons is rewarding.

John Foxx - London Overgrown

On the subject of pioneering purveyors of electronics, this is a beautiful 2015 ambient album from Mr Foxx. Beatless, vocal-less, in places quite close to the stuff he did on the Cathedral Oceans albums and overall a pleasure to get absorbed in.

Olden Yolk - Olden Yolk

New York sort-of folk indie. Which is damning it before you've heard it, but I really like this record. Here's a sample: https://youtu.be/0yelLYGvQ7g

Lowtide - Southern Mind
Another new discovery for me, apparently their second album. Australian Shoegaze like it's 1991, also really liking this. https://youtu.be/JB0cVKFuczo


Jean-Michel Jarre - Oxygene
Jean-Michel Jarre - Equinoxe

Japan - Tin Drum
Heaven 17 - The Luxury Gap

Saloon - "Free Fall" 7"

Lonelady - Nerve Up
Jah Wobble & Julie Campbell - Psychic Life
Lonelady - Hinterland
Odd Beholder - Lighting
Odd Beholder - Atlas
LOMA - Shivani OST

Led Zeppelin - I-IV, Houses of the Holy, Physical Grafitti and In through the out door

King Crimson - In the court of the Crimson King

King Biscuit Time - Black Gold

Jambinai - A Hermitage. South Korean Post Rock at its finest!

Leftfield - Leftism. Just a classic nuff said

Krust - coded language. Appreciating this more as the years unfold. Must be mature or somefink

Kula Shaker - Pigs, peasants and astronauts. I still maintain that this is their best album

The Flowers of Hell - Odes. They don't half like the Velvet Underground... understandable really on this covers album

Flowers Must Die - Montana/Nusrat EP. Perfectly satisfactory psych

Flight of the Conchords - S/T and I told you I was freaky. I got hurt feelings is just the best song ever. The other songs being not quite as good but still worth trawling through.

The Fall - Perverted by Language. He's not right that Mark E Smith. The music they make is intriguing though and this album was new to me and seemed influenced by Beefheart.

Emily Portman - Coracle. Gently does it. And it still held my attention too
