The Preservation Tapes by Bruce Haack is a selection of material from the late Canadian electronic music pioneer’s archive. All selections are previously unreleased. The music mainly comes from a time when Haack was recording the proudly Christian label, Sparrow Records. Whilst the lyrics contain unfamiliar religious themes, Haack’s signature vocoder sound is a distinctive feature. Beck and Stereolab have been known to cover Haack’s material in the past. LP on Telephone Explosion.

A rare slab of 1970 electronics by Bruce Haak. The Electric Lucifer is heavily-laden with dramatic organ and even more dramatic vocals, plus some cutting-edge Moog synths and electronically-tweaked wildness. This has been unavailable for years, but is now reissued in a limited edition of 1000 copies by Telephone Explosion.
This reissue represents the first ever vinyl outing for Haackula, a cult favourite among electro enthusiasts. Bruce Haack originally made this record in 1978, but the music was thought too weird and dark to release. This release has the full original album, plus his 1982 smash tune ‘Party Machine’. On Telephone Explosion, 1000 copies.

The sequel to his now-revered 1970 LP Electric Lucifer, Electric Lucifer: Song Book II first arrived in 1979 but hasn't been very available on western shores since then. Telephone Explosion, a label from Haack's native land, is rectifying that dilemma, having announced a nice new pressing of that Electric Lucifer: Song Book II. The record treads similar sonic ground to its predecessor, but Haack had clearly processed the music of the '70s when he made it, filling this sequel with some deep funk, prog, sound collage, and jazz fusion tidbits.
