British Murder Boys
Fire In The Still Air

Yes folks, the Boys are back in town. Apart, Regis and Surgeon are two of the scene’s most pummelling and relentless purveyors of industrial techno, but together… Well, its heavy. Fire In The Still Air, the first British Murder Boys release in some years, is just as angry and vivid as you would wish it to be. Released on CD by Downwards.

Surgeon
Raw Trax 2

Time to get up close and nasty with Surgeon and his Raw Trax. Straight-up heavy-banging techno recorded direct to tape in the studio, using just a single synth and a single drum machine (these were the PIN Electronics Portabella and the Roland TR-909, gear-heads). The four cuts assembled on Raw Trax 2 have made a few appearances in Surgeon DJ sets, but now you can have them for yourself.

Surgeon
Raw Trax 1

Time to get as pure and direct as possible with Surgeon and his Raw Trax. These vivid cuts were recorded direct in the studio (no overdubs) using one synth and one drum machine only (the PIN Electronics Portabella and the Roland TR-909 if you want to know). These are total no-nonsense super-techno trax from a master of the form, released in a suitably raw sleeve by Dynamic Tension.

British Murder Boys
Learn Your Lesson

British Murder Boys are, of course, the experimental techno duo of techno experimentalists Regis and Surgeon. Formed in the early 2000s, reformed a few years ago, and apparently recently dissolved again, this 12” on Counterbalance is in fact an archive release from 2003. If you are familiar with either of these producers, you can imagine what tracks "Learn Your Lesson" and "Rule By Law" might sound like.

Surgeon
Force + Form Remakes

Late 90’s hard techno business from master of this-sort-of-thing Surgeon. Force + Form Remakes accompanies the reissue of the album, with Surgeon himself providing two brand new spins on the material, as well as a take from Mick Harris, formerly of Napalm Death. As firm and heavy as ever from Mr Child. 12” on Tresor.

Surgeon
Luminosity Device

Accomplished techno man Surgeon aka Anthony Child returns with Luminosity Device, a title that sounds like a verbose homage to lightbulbs until you learn it really refers to the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Might be a bit more spiritual, then. These are intense modular techno tunes with excellent sequencing and the sensitive (and sensible) live editing of a disciplined DJ, not a tedious bedroom eurorack jammer. This Surgeon fellow seems to know what he’s doing.

Surgeon
Basictonalvocabulary

Tresor are going about reissuing a few classic LPs from hard techno master Surgeon. 1997’s Basictonalvocabulary is the sophomore album from the Birmingham DJ/producer and also the first full-length he cut for the Berlin label. With its relentless drum programming, booming bass and busy lead lines Basictonalvocabulary would help define the sound of both Surgeon and Tresor for years to come. An essential cop.

British Murder Boys
Don't Give Way To Fear

British Murder Boys are Anthony Child and Karl O'Connor who you probably know better as noisy techno blokes Surgeon and Regis. This is repress their 2003 12" Don't Give Way To Fear. Look lads, if you're gonna run around calling yourselves MURDER BOYS I don't care where you're from I'm gonna be a little bit scared.

Surgeon
Unreleased Tracks 1995-1996 (2014 Remaster)

Rounding off the six-volume series of Surgeon reissues that SRX have been rolling out over the course of the last few months, here is Unreleased Tracks 1995-1996. You know the drill with King Surgeon: these are firm and nasty techno bangers, all freshly remastered from the original tapes and re-cut for this release.

The Transcendence Orchestra
Modern Methods For Ancient Rituals

Through a vast array of instruments and processes, in a setting designed to evoke transcendental energies, Anthony Child and Daniel Bean have conjured up a remarkable torch bearer of deep listening. It's a slowly shifting, drone wash of texture and growth that will definitely appeal to fans of Eno, Laraaji and Natural Snow Buildings.

Surgeon
Communications (2014 Remaster)

Raw early material from Brutalist Techno practitioner Surgeon. Communications was first released in 1996, and carries the full weight of the much loved Surgeon sound. Remastered and re-cut so as to sound even better than the original release, Communications is both a important historical lesson and a set of fresh-sounding bangers.

Surgeon
Dynamic Tension (2014 Remaster)

More reissue goodness from the ancient halls of techno history here at Norman Records: Surgeon is doing a series of remasters. This is Dynamic Tension, remastered in 2014. On it you’ll find many of the key ideas from when Surgeon was still doing his 1995 research on beat anatomy. These are some of the original banging techno tracks of all the reworks and remixes from Surgeon’s hand over the past two decades.

Surgeon
Rare Tracks 95-96 (2014 Remaster)

Surgeon has been doing this shit for years, and lest you forget that fact, he is in the middle of a six-part reissue campaign on SRX. Rare Tracks 95-96 gives you four slices of classic power-techno, originally only on compilations or super-rare white labels. All remastered, all high-grade Surgeon dancing material.

Surgeon
Pet 2000 (2014 Remaster)

Here's the next remaster in a series of them for Surgeon, following on from the reissue of his self-titled EP. This one is called 'Pet 2000', and it's coming on two decades since it was initially recorded, a slice of techno that's endeavoured through the ages and has the usual side note of Surgeon whimsy -- it was named after a pet shop in Nottingham. Now you can get it from SRX.

Surgeon
Convenience Trap

Surgeon’s burrowing into the depths of composed-on-the-fly live hardware techno has been going further and further recently. The four tracks you’ll find here on Convenience Trap have grown out of these explorations, so they are extra direct in their power-rhythm attacks on the listener. Fierce and firm Surgeon sound, as ever. 12” EP on Dynamic Tension.

GNOD & Anthony Child
Behind The Lids

Anthony Child AKA Surgeon was a fan of Manchester’s Gnod for a long time, finally got in touch and began a small collaboration. Noisy, droning pieces that show Gnod’s krautrock influences and mixed with Surgeon’s modular dirt shift it from a meer lunging soundscape to a tense atmospheric work.

Anthony Child
Electronic Recordings from Maui Jungle, Vol. 2

Following up Vol. 1 from 2015, Anthony Child, better known as Surgeon lets all the masks and hard edges drop to the floor for the material released under his own name. Taking single long take field samples recorded in the jungle as backing tracks to his much more ambient hardware improvisations. Come, get yourself zenned.

Surgeon
Bland Ambition

Developing his hardware improvisation over the last two decades Surgeon has decided to grace us with some of the fruits of his many labours. Taking some of those themes or ideas that he has perfected and utilised in live settings and laying them out into these four tracks. Have you just got into modular stuff… got some catching up to do.

Surgeon
Basictonal-Remake

‘Basictonal-Remake’ is a remake of tracks taken from one of the greatest albums from the impressive and extensive back catalogue of German electro institution, Tresor Records. Originally released in the late nineties as part of a trilogy of Surgeon albums (‘Basictonalvocabulary’, ‘Balance’ and ‘Force + Form’) this remake 12” release comes with alternate versions including a remix by Birmingham collaborator Mick Harris. This is post-industrial, British techno with a heavy Detroit influence.

Surgeon
Search Deep Inside Yourself

Techno don Surgeon helps the Blueprint label to celebrate their 20th anniversary with this four track vinyl 12”. On Search Deep Inside Yourself the minimal techno sound this artist has helped define since the 90s is as tense, sharp and relentless as ever. This is deceptively simple, and always sublime, electronic music.

Surgeon
From Farthest Known Objects

A brand-new, full-length album from Anthony Child, aka Surgeon. This time, the conceit is that Child’s vintage equipment ended up spitting out such strange-sounding results that they could only conceivably emit from another galaxy: hence From Farthest Known Objects. These tracks are indeed a fresh, wild-sounding trip, though they still keep hold of that essential Surgeon rhythm. On Dynamic Tension.

Surgeon
Tresor 97-99

Tresor 97-99 gathers up three old Surgeon releases that appeared on the Tresor label in the 90’s: Basictonalvocabulary, Balance, Form + Focus. Totally classic Surgeon sound, strict techno on 3 CDs, packaged in a beautiful box. The best part is that this box-set comes with a ticket for an event at the Tresor club in Berlin!

Surgeon
Fixed Action Pattern

This is the first record for Token by the techno artist and DJ known as Surgeon (and known in the flesh-realm as Anthony Child). The 'Fixed Action Pattern' 12" features a straight-up slice of industrial-orientated techno and broken beat, with a flip side that reverse engineers the track to sound all dub.

Surgeon
Surgeon EP (2014 Remaster)

Part 1 of the 6-EP SRX Surgeon reissues series revisits the sounds of Birmingham techno as of 20 years ago. A highly influential artist in the genre, Surgeon feels that the masters of his earliest tracks were "cut by people who had no understanding of electronic music", refusing them the clarity and dynamics that these pioneering cuts deserve.

Surgeon
Hello Oslo

For when Surgeon's mean studio cuts aren't enough, there's always Hello Oslo, taken straight from Club Fabrikken in the eponymous capital city, where he threw down fresh versions of four classic tracks, including "October Request" and "Screw the Roses". Surgeon continues to freeze your spine, up  and personal this time.

Surgeon
Compliance Momentum

2010 release on Dynamic Tension from Birmingham’s Surgeon, aka Anthony Child. If you are on this page, you know full well how this is going to be: big, relentless techno that does not pity your weak human body. "Compliance Momentum" is a particularly tough character. Best heard on a heavy heavy soundsystem, needless to say.
