In gloriously awkward fashion, Belgian label Cramboy celebrates the 38th anniversary of experimental post-punkers Tuxedomoon with a deluxe 10LP box set. Complete with a 28 page 12” book the set contains the band’s nine studio albums on vinyl and an additional album of previously unreleased tracks. Contains download code for the whole lot.
Minimal Man was the San Francisco outfit of Patrick Miller, little remembered in official histories but still well worthy of your time today. The Shroud Of is their 1981 debut full-length, a cheap-and-nasty sounding slab of minimal industrial post-punk, delivered with a messy nihilism. So yeah, it's great. Reissued by Burka For Everybody in an edition of 300.
Tuxedomoon’s 1980 debut Half-Mute is rightly well-regarded as a weird-pop masterpiece: now the band are touring it again! To accompany the shows, they’ve handed out the material to artists like Simon Fisher Turner, Cult With No Name and Aksak Maboul, to cover and reinterpret. All these new takes are presented here: the CD version also contains the original album reissued.
Blue Velvet Revisited is a recent making-of documentary for David Lynch’s classic movie, and we all know what David Lynch films sound like don’t we? What a tantalising soundtrack commission for Tuxedomoon and Cult With No Name to try and capture that atmosphere, which they achieve with noirish jazz and chamber music.
Pink Narcissus by Tuxedomoon is their first album in five years and is a vinyl-only release. It was written as a new soundtrack for the 1971 cult film of the same name and performed by the band during a 2011 screening at L’Etrange Festival.
Pink Narcissus is available as a limited edition of 1000 copies, 750 of which are numbered. Includes download code.
At no less than 36 years of age, the warped synths and humming basslines of Half-Mute by Tuxedomoon return to the fore on vinyl with Crammed Discs. The experimental new-wavers from San Fran helped kick off the 1970s punk rock revolution, and this offering is largely responsible for establishing the outfit's cult status.
