John Bender
Pop Surgery

Pop Surgery was the last album German eccentric John Bender recorded. It was originally released in 1982. He brought together tape experiments, drum machines and analogue sequencers to deconstruct the idea of the pop song - Pop Surgery perhaps containing his best attempts at doing so. Fans of Suicide, Throbbing Gristle circa 20 Jazz Funk Greats and the early strains of Cabaret Voltaire should check this out. Reissue LP on Superior Viaduct.

John Bender
Plaster Falling

Plaster Falling is an under-appreciated work of weirdo synth-song, produced by one John Bender back in 1981. The songs on this record feel isolated, built in a bedroom rather than a studio, according to Bender’s exact specifications. This is the first time that Plaster Falling has been reissued in its own right, and on translucent blue vinyl too! Limited edition of 1000 copies on Superior Viaduct.

John Bender
I Don't Remember Now / I Don't Want To Talk About It

I Don't Remember Now/I Don't Want To Talk is the ultra-rare first album from early electronics experimenter John Bender. Originally released in 1980, Bender’s primitive punk electronics fed into electro-punk, no-wave and synth-pop. This release is a mixture of bonkers tape experiments, proto-electro and harsh DIY pop songs.
