Colin Potter
The Where House?

Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Organum, Other Bands - tireless sound-maverick Colin Potter has worked with them all, and knocked out an overwhelming stream of his own material since 1980 right up to the present day. The Where House? is one of his first releases, now remastered for vinyl by Dark Entries and sounding immense. Gluttonous bass and fringe synth in ‘Yoursmine’ are followed by choral drones of ‘Alleys’ and it only gets weirder from then on. Super industrial/post punk electronic experiments.

Konstruktivists
Glennascaul

Konstruktivists is the project of Glenn Michael Wallis who had a connection with Throbbing Gristle (he was their control agent, whatever that means!). His music, described as proto-electro, was influenced by the likes of Neu!, Can, Yello, Tuxedomoon and Chrome. 'Glennascaul', his fourth album, was produced by Chris Carter of Throbbing Gristle at his studio in 1985. Wallis also collaborated with Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti on' Conspiracy International One' by CTI.

Patrick Cowley
Mechanical Fantasy Box

Patrick Cowley is probably best known as a Hi-NRG pioneer writing and producing hits for disco diva Sylvester. However he was also somewhat of an early electronic pioneer writing experimental electronic pieces inspired by Kraftwerk. Here are thirteen unreleased songs recorded between the years 1973 and 1980 showcasing these electronic work he recorded using only the primitive equipment available to him at the time. Proceeds to the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.  

Angela
Fantasy

Angela were a German husband and wife duo made up of Angela and Ingo Werner. Ingo was classically trained and had played in My Solid Ground and Baba Yaga in the early ‘70s. Angela recorded two albums before being dropped by their label. Their 1981 single 'Fantasy' was created entirely software designed by Ingo making him some sort of electro-pop whizz.

Helen (Italo disco artist)
Witch / Zanzibar

Dark Entries Editions reissue series continues with a double A-side of the first two Helen maxi singles, “Witch” and “Zanzibar”, as a 4-song EP. Helen was an Italo disco studio project that consisted of various producers, songwriters, and vocalists from Italy in the 1980s. The first line-up included popular Italo producers Piero Cairo and Massimo Noe, known for their work with Joe Yellow, Den Harrow, Pink Project, and Dharma to name a few. They were joined by prolific Italo session vocalist Elena Ferretti. “Witch” was originally released in 1983 on Out Records, a label distributed by Discomagic Records. Signature Linndrum and Simmons drums create the driving rhythm track while Elena’s powerful vocals tell the haunted tale of a witch and her magic.

Patrick Cowley
Muscle Up

Check this out friends: Muscle Up is a collection of Patrick Cowley’s soundtracks to gay porn films. The tracks, crafted out of synths and hand-built equipment, are at once sleazy and remarkably experimental, sliding slickly between ambience and funk. Double LP packaged with sexy posters on Dark Entries / Honey Soundsystem.

LHASA
Acetabularia

First-time re-issue of the 1988 debut 12” single from Lhasa, the brainchild of German ‘New Beat’ pioneer Alain Raes, featuring four bonus tracks. Combining the pulse of Detroit techno with the chilliness of film-noir soundtracks, ‘Acetabularia’ and its B-side ‘Acetatechno’ both contained samples from classic satirical movie ‘Dr. Strangelove…’. 

Victrola
Born From The Water (Demos 1983-85)

As Dark Entries fans are sure to already know, dark synth-poppers Victrola only ever released one EP, in 1983. But it turns out they recorded stacks of demos, with more than a hundred cassettes sifted through to assemble the suite of 1983-1985 demos heard here. Twelve tracks, none of them heard in these versions before.

Stratis
New Face

First ever vinyl reissue of Stratis' second album New Face. The Cologne duo channel the sort of rigid industrial early electronic music you'd associate with Chris & Cosey and Vangelis. Accompanying the electronics is the bands wonderfully detached and dead-pan vocal delivery that completely sells New Face's atmosphere.

  • Dark Entries

Drama
Loneliness

Drama were making electronic music before it was cool. In the late '70s and into the '80s, bands in Eric Simpson and Don Stagg's local Ontario, Canada, were playing in guitar rock bands. Loneliness is the band's debut LP from 1978 and it's a brooding piece of electronica which shifts between New-Wave and Krautrock.

El Deux + Martin Kraft
Nur Fur Madchen

Swiss duo El Deux (Gutze Gautschi and Steno Onetz of Frische Farbe) hooked up with Swiss solo Martin Kraft in 1981 and made this album. Bad luck if you don’t identify as female, because this one’s Nur Für Mädchen. The 1980s crate-diggers over at Dark Entries Records have exhumed the old Deutsche new wave-esque synthpop sparkler and thrown in an additional song for good measure.

Talking Drums
Courage

Another cracking reissue from Dark Entries here. Talking Drums were a Glaswegian group that knocked about in the ‘80s, releasing two EPs and a full-length record. Courage was first put out in 1982, around the same time groups like Orange Juice were kicking it in Talking Drums’ home city. There’s a fair bit of OJ to these tunes, while the influence of NYC no-wavers like ESG is also apparent. All in all this is a good one for linking Glasgow’s first DIY golden-age with the modern-day endeavours of acts like Golden Teacher and Whilst.

Billy Nightmare
Reality Check

Some ye olde Chicago House fayre here. Billy Nightmare dropped the Reality Check EP in 1996 around the same time that he was also putting stuff out on labels like Trax under the moniker Mystic Bill. The four tunes here are elegant house tunes with earworm basslines. Originally released by the Sounds. imprint, this reissue comes courtesy of Dark Entries.

Lena Platonos
Lepidoptera

Reissue of the ‘mother of Greek electronica’ by Dark Entries here. Originally released in 1986, the pianist-turned-composer Lena Platonos conceived Lepidoptera as a record of avant-pop. Full of stylistic left-turns - dinky nature documentary soundtrack one minute, Devo-meets-Laurie Anderson the next - this record sounds oddly contemporary when put up against the smorgasbord-pop sound of so many current post-genre artists.

Richard Wahnfried
Time Actor

Time Actor is credited to Richard Wahnfried, who you’ve probably never heard of, right? So why bother listening to Time Actor? Well, because that Wagner-referencing name is a pseudonym for the collaboration of German synth wizard Klaus Schulze and the original psychedelic Fireman Arthur Brown himself! What a team-up eh? Remastered reissue of this rare 1979 treat, spread over two LPs.

Instant Music
Instant Music

Kraftwerk inspired poppy post-punk from 80s Munich. Instant Music managed to do what so many Kraftwerk imitators failed to do, and made six fun (!) robotic tracks, including one where washing machine instructions are read out over samples of the machine in questions. Remaster released on Dark Entries.

Various
Outer Himalayan Presents

This collaborative release between Dark Entries and Sacred Bones sees them chronicling the output of British post-punk imprint Outer Himmalayan Records. Active in the late 70s and early 80s, the label’s 7” releases of bands The Magits, Soft Drinks and The Haters became formative releases in the annals of both Goth and anarcho-punk. For this reissue, the tracks have been remastered and come accompanied with a zine.

Severed Heads
Come Visit The Big Bigot

Originally released in 1986, Dark Entries reissue Come Visit The Big Bigot on double vinyl for the first time since. Experimental and generally quite harsh percussion, noisy synthesis and sample mangling back vocals that vary from Kraftwerk-ian to almost Gary Numan. At it’s core it’s an industrial record, but with some polished edges.

Villa Abo
Magnetic Moves

Villa Åbo is now vinyl-able: the 2014 debut LP of this seldom-active pet project of Jan Svensson’s has found its way into waxy waters. Svensson has been active for decades under various names and as manager of the label Börft. The Villa Åbo project is all about exquisitely-produced minimal techno. The productions usually contain just enough elements and acidity to populate compelling, ambiguous atmospheres. At other times (e.g. ‘Bianco Festival’)  things get a bit cheekier.

Intense Molecular Activity
I.M.A.

I.M.A. were a pair of New York sound industry people back in the early 80’s: their jobs gave them access to some interesting studio spaces out of hours, which they utilised to record their own versions of the sounds they loved. Synths and percussion were performed, recorded, and then bounced and dubbed through a network of tape loops and recorders, for extra interesting results. Their Intense Molecular Activity is now reissued in full replica style, with a postcard, on vinyl, by Dark Entries.

Trisomie 21
Chapter IV

When Trisomie 21’s Chapter IV, Le Je-ne-sais quoi et le presque-rien dropped in the mid-80s, it was very much ahead of its time, especially for the French post-punk scene. While now it just sounds of its time, that doesn’t mean it’s not worthy of reissue, in this case via Dark Entries. Obvious touchstones are Durutti Column and Joy Division as well as the doomier moments of The Cure’s discography. This edition has been remastered and comes with a whole extra vinyl of remixes and version.

Nu-Sound II Crew / Magnus I
Spilt EP

Both a reissue and a split EP, this is one of the things we love most at Norman Records. Throw in the fact that we’re talking about oldskool experimental 90s synthesizer driven electro, and we might be tempted to keep all these beautiful vinyl 12”s, including the sweet postcard of the Nu Sounds crew djing.

Patrick Cowley
Afternooners

Sex! Now that I have your attention: porn! Wait. Patrick Cowley is the electronic artist responsible for a series of cult gay porn soundtracks; Afternooners is the final volume to be released in an archival series of these works. Associated with creating his own dance sound based on trying to transpose other genres for synth, his music retains a unique sound faraway from the typical cry of vintage. This one's arguably the most experimental in its series.

Peppermint Lounge
Perfect High

Dark Entries turn their attention to short lived German outfit Peppermint Lounge, who originally released Perfect High in 1983. It’s an engrossing slice of synth wave seduction with a killer vocal turn that comes on like Siouxsie Sioux gone to the disco and enough warbling, throbbing melodies to satisfy the most synthetic of souls.

Virginia
Blue Pyramid

It’s high time the Psychic TV catalogue got a reappraisal, and Dark Entries are just the label to do the job. Working in tandem with Emotional Rescue, they’ve dug out this blistering set of early house wares from Dave Ball of Soft Cell his wife Virginia, whose violin flairs create a wild texture over the staggeringly prescient and wonderfully menacing club cuts.

Keine Ahnung
Keine Ahnung

Keine Ahnung are another group from that fertile early 80s period in Germany that gave rise to so many cult gems hidden in the folds of industrial and minimal wave history. While much of their material remains unreleased, this debut album made a minor splash on its initial release and now enjoys a righteous reissue via Dark Entries. Bar the occasional punky blast, it’s mainly made up of sleazy, sinister synth cuts for the night walkers to stomp to.
  • Label(s):
  • Dark Entries

Tranceonic
New Crime

It’s staggering to think Yello legends Boris Blank and Carlos Peron recorded this incredible collection of unsettling synth jams in the mid 70s. Originally planned for release by The Residents, what never came to fruition at the time finally sees the light of the day now via this fantastic compilation, comfortably nestled amongst kindred spirits on Dark Entries.

The Neon Judgement
Cockerill-Sombre

The Neon Judgement are another brick in Belgium’s sizzling early-80’s EBM / synth-wave scene. Their Cockerill-Sombre EP, released in 1983, contains their biggest hit ‘The Fashion Party’, which is deliciously cold and sleazily aggressive. Remastered audio pressed to 12” vinyl, packaged with an insert with photos and new liner notes by the band’s own Dirk Da Davo. On Dark Entries.

Tom Ware
Tom Ware

Smoking hot 80s boogie rarity alert! Dark Entries have really come up trumps here, digging out the supremely desirable 1983 album from cult synth operator Tom Ware. This is bold, razor sharp machine music that stands up to contemporary electro with staggering confidence – in another universe this would have been a formative album for the likes of DMX Krew and every other electro aficionado.

Hypnobeat
Prototech

A retrospective compilation of the Peter Weiss (Narco Syntax) fronted Hypnobeat project. These collected recordings from 1984-1986 showcase their dirty, rough and ready homemade core, where an 808, 303, and rhythm are the focal points. Mixing hypnotic tribal rhythms with proto-acid and distorting analog equipment.
  • Label(s):
  • Dark Entries

East Wall
Eyes Of Glass

Dark Entries present a much needed, official remastered reissue of this much sought after and bootlegged Italo Disco gem from Fabrizio Chiari (ex-keyboardist of Kirlian Camera) and Wilma Notari. Originally released in 1982 it still sounds glorious some 34 years later. Includes a double-sided postcard with photos of the band, lyrics, and liner notes by Italo Diso legend Flemming Dalum.

Lena Platonos
Sun Masks Remix

Remix albums can go one of two ways, but this one does the job it’s supposed to do, and pretty well. A remix album by a collection of contemporary Dj’s that take on four tracks from Lena Plantonos’ record Sun Masks. All four tracks have been twisted and shaped into a number of dancefloor hits. Available on Vinyl 12”.

3 Teens Kill 4
No Motive

Remastered for vinyl by George Horn, No Motive is the 1982 release from New York experimental rock outfit 3 Teens Kill 4. Although the record may be from the 80’s, it could easily be plucked from any of the current new wave bands, showing just how progressive 3 Teens Kill 4 are- notice the references to Reagan throughout out the entire record. Available on vinyl LP.

  • Dark Entries

Rich La Bonte
Mayan Canals

Setting up his own label, Flatdisk, in 1980 Rich La Bonté has released sporadically. Dark Entries have remastered his debut full length that was released in 1981. Mayan Canals is as eccentric as it is experimental, with obvious inspiration from Frank Zappa it’s woozy, psychedelic, lots of synthesizer experimentation, and free form nonsensical pop at parts.
  • Label(s):
  • Dark Entries

Psychic TV
Alien Be-In Remix EP

The classic 1989 Psychic TV track Alien Be-In, presented in full remastered glory and accompanied by two remixes. The original track captures the band’s wyrd take on Acid House, and remixes from Silent Servant and John Tejada push the sound into more contemporary forms of bangin’. Real striking packaging too!

Flying
Marilyn

Remastered specifically for vinyl re-pressing, Marilyn is the 1985 creation of Italian disco project of Flying. This is clearly the brainchild of two minds that were locked firmly in the science behind legendary synth instrumentation such as the Roland Jupiter-8 and the Elka Synthex. Retro gold. 

Severed Heads
Please Clifford, Don't Live In The Past

Please Clifford, Don’t Live In The Past is a retrospective collection of Severed Heads, a bunch of Australian post-punk, synth-pop, tape-experimental heads whose work is getting some reissue attention from the Dark Entries label. Lots of exciting odds and ends here, with live, demo and unreleased tracks along with band members’ solo recordings. Double LP on Dark Entries.

The Arms Of Someone New
Susan Sleepwalking

The Arms Of Someone New were an Illinois band who comfortably combined all their favourite genres into one sound: synth-pop, folk, industrial, ambient… Susan Sleepwalking, the duo’s first full-length album, was originally self-released in 1985, and has now been properly remastered and re-pressed to vinyl by Dark Entries, complete with a replica jacket and an insert of lyrics and press clippings.

Beranek
Sound Of Danger

Dark Entries uncover another cold synth gem. Remastered from the 1981 recordings, Beranek, having received a great amount of exposure due to being banned in on Norwegian radio, recorded this album which wasn’t well received but is a cold(wave) masterpiece, with iced metal synths and a glam David Bowie-esque vocal performance.

East Wall
Silence

Premium quality vinyl reissue of the ultra rare LP. East Wall are better known for the 12" hit "Eyes Of Glass", but this is an amazing album from a few years later. Crossing through different styles and with many great tracks. A must for fans of Minimal Wave, Dark Entries, Mannequin. Limited 300 copies. First copies available on transparent coloured vinyl. Vinyl 135 g / LP-cover with 3mm spine, 280g , 2014 remastered versions. Tracks: A1. Silence A2. Ice Of FireA3. Twenty Five Sunsets Before DawnA4. Angelo B1. BlueB2. PrivacyB3. Twenty Seven

Kirlian Camera
Helden Platz

Another classic eighties Italodisco remastered 12" here at Norman Records: Kirlian Camera’s exciting 1987 single Helden Platz (that’s German for Heroes’ Square). Vocals are courtesy of Simona Buja on this up-tempo dark-wave synth-pop track. Produced by the Rick Rubin of Italodisco, Oderso Rubini. Includes an extended mix as well as original B-side Burial.

Diseno Corbusier
Stadia

Avant-garde does not do this record justice - this is extreme experimentalism, in a way that others wouldn't dare attempt. Stadia, the third full-length offering by Spanish-based electronic duo Diseno Corbusier, is a haywire concoction including spasming drums, female yelps and electronic bursts. It pushes the boundaries, in every feasible way.

Smersh
Selected Deep House Anthems

Don’t let the title fool you, Selected Deep House Anthems contains some of the rawest, no-wave electro ever committed to wax. Smersh specialised in noisy, unrefined acid and techno that borrowed from EBM and post-punk and is ripe for rediscovery. This much-needed pressing comes from the Dark Entries label.

Patrick Cowley & Candida Royalle
Candida Cosmica

Patrick Cowley is often uttered in the same breath as Giorgio Moroder as being a pioneer of electronic dance music, and is probably most known for being a leading producer of the “Hi-NRG” sound. Candida Cosmica is a much more minimal affair, a collaboration with his roommate of the time Candida Royalle, her experimental vocals interweaved with synthesizers, handbuilt machines and percussion. Recorded 1973-75.

Die Form
Zoo

Recorded between 1980-82 during writing sessions for their album Die Puppe, these 10 tracks are all hardware equipment (TR-808 and ARP2600 to name a few) and mostly improvisations. These synth mangling electro tracks are rough and ready, noisy and thrown together, and that’s why they’re great. Distorted vocals and tape hiss, yes please.
  • Label(s):
  • Dark Entries

Zwischenfall
Heute

Vintage Belgian electro action in the style that the Dark Entries label loves so dearly. Zwischenfall recorded and released the Heute EP in 1983, although two tracks heard here have never been pressed to vinyl before. Reissued by Dark Entries in a replica of the original sleeve along with a 6-page booklet of tasty lyrics and photos.
  • Label(s):
  • Dark Entries

Wanexa
The Man From Colours

Rago & Farina produced a large body of Italo-disco classics during the eighties and ‘The Man From Colours’ is one of the best and most unusual examples of this. For a track from the mostly dance driven genre of Italo-disco, the sound is unusually dreamy and nostalgic, combining forlorn synth lines, classic 808 drum patterns and breathtaking vocals to create an atmospheric disco odyssey.

Series-A
Evolution ⁵ Technology

These rad electro jams from 1987 only ever made it to the promotional stage before their original label went defunct, leaving only 50 copies out in the wild. That’s a shame, as Series-A did great work with Evolution⁵ Technology, a forward-looking synth-single with a real kick to it. All remastered and re-pressed now, with the addition of a new JTC remix.

Space Art
Nous Savons Tout

1977 was pretty early to be making synth-pop, but that’s when French duo Space Art got going. This reissue is of their third single, first released in 1978. Nous Savons Tout feels like it looks to the future, with epic synth-work that recalls French electro-proggers Heldon. Remastered 7” with original artwork and a postcard with some liner notes.

Cute Heels
Third Skin EP

Barcelona’s Cute Heels offers up a synthesis of classic dance genres, with aspects of EBM, Detroit techno and Chicago house all present on the Third Skin EP. Old-school floor-filling stuff. On top of the original cuts, we also get a pair of remixes: one from The Hacker and one from Steffi. Vinyl on Dark Entries, packaged along with one of their trademark postcards.

Phantom Forth
The EEPP

Phantom Forth recorded The EEPP for release on Flying Nun in 1984. It offers an insight into one corner of New Zealand’s low-key DIY underground scene: apparently a dark and shadowy corner judging by the coldwave / post-punk stylings on display here. This Dark Entries reissue is fully remastered, features 2 bonus demos, and comes with original artwork and a poster!

Various
Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Vol. 2

The BART is the rail transport system which connects San Francisco's Bay Area, and so it should come as no surprise that this is a compilation of music from that area around the late '70s and early '80s. With contributions from the likes of Factrix, Chrome and Tuxedomoon as well as lesser known artists from the scene, this compilation records the strange motorik mixture of krautrock, synthpop and no-wave that was spreading across the bay like a rash.

Konstruktivists
A Dissembly

Konstruktivists have been releasing pretty much every year (with the odd gap here and there) since 1982. With a recent album out, Dark Entries look back at its beginnings; mixing with Throbbing Gristle and all of the Industrial records gang. This is a must for anyone into the initial industrial releases - gritty, cold, experimentation with a load of hardware.

Dario Dell'Aere
Eagles In The Night

Dario Dell’Aere’s voice sounds like an old American-Soul crooner, but comes backed with full-blast 1985 Italo disco backing on Eagles In The Night. It’s a groovy time and no mistake. The 12”, remastered of course, is housed in a replica sleeve along with a postcard insert. On Dark Entries.

Ghibli
I'm Looking For You

I’m Looking For You was the recorded debut of Italian artist Alberto Garbelli, aka Ghibli, first put out in 1985. His vocal style is a dramatic semi-operatic croon, while his music charges forwards with typical Italo-disco relentlessness. This 12” is remastered and packed within a replica of the original sleeve, plus a postcard. On Dark Entries.

Brand Image
Are You Loving?

Brand Image shares a city, a year, a musical style and a vibe with Some Bizarre: why it even shares personnel! So if you liked their slick synth-disco vibe, you’ll love Are You Loving? for sure. The 12”, remastered of course, is housed in a replica sleeve along with a postcard insert. On Dark Entries.

The Frozen Autumn
Time Is Just A Memory

The Frozen Autumn is an Italian band from Turin. They’ve released three albums since forming in 1993 and Time is Just a Memory is a six-track collection and a general overview of those three albums. The songs are dark, clinical synth tracks in the vein of Depeche Mode, Cocteau Twins and Oppenheimer Analysis. Six remastered tracks. Includes an 11x11 insert with lyrics and notes.     

Crash Course In Science
Jump Over Barrels

Crash Course In Science are a post-punk band formed by three art school students in Philadelphia in 1979. Whilst guitars, drums and synths were used, the band eschewed convention by experimenting with toy instruments and kitchen appliances to add to their sound. Jump Over Barrells was recorded in 1981, intended for an album called Near Marineland, the song remained unmixed and unreleased. This 12” also features a robust remix by Charles Manier aka Tadd Mullinix and a demo version from 1980 which highlights the track’s raw sparseness.

Carlos Peron
Dirty Songs EP

After a stint in the band he started, Yello, Carlos Peron ventured out into the world of solo recordings circa 1983, and this was one of the things he came up with. The tracks on the Dirty Songs EP (many present in extended forms)  are mostly instrumental, allowing the listener to focus on the seedy sway of Peron’s slow synth-wave constructions.

Clay Pedrini
New Dream

‘New Dream’ is released as part of series of rare Italo Disco club hit reissues from Dark Entries Editions. Originally released in 1984, it is Milan musician and singer Clay Pedrini’s only single release. Pedrini’s fusion of electronic and analogue instruments made him an influential player in the eighties electro Italo scene despite his limited output.

Van Kaye + Ignit
A Slight Delay

A Slight Delay was originally a c60 cassette released in 1981 as the first explorations of Van Kaye and Ignit, a Dutch pair with a great interest in these new-fangled electronic sounds that were becoming newly available. These are intimate recordings, made with wide eyes and a certain degree of oddity. Nicely remastered double LP on Dark Entries.

Art Fine
Dark Silence

Art Fine was the duo of Fabrice Bellini (electronics, vocals) and Rush Blakemann (guitar, synthesizer) from Tuin, Italy. They met in art school and became friends, inspired by New Wave, dance and electronic music. They recorded their only single “Dark Silence” in November of 1984, which was released by Discomagic in 1985.  Fabrice programmed the electronic drums using SCI Drumtraks and added extra tracks on the Simmons SDSV. Rush played electric guitar and the Yamaha piano notes at the start of the song.  Guest musicians Silvano Borgatta and Riccardo RosaThe “da da da da da" voice effect was done by engineer Gigi Guerrieri, who cut and spliced a tape rather than using a sampler, which was too expensive at the time.

Patrick Cowley
School Daze

A unique compilation of works from the late electronic pioneer Patrick Cowley. School Daze features over eighty minutes of music from two gay porn films 'Muscle Up' and 'School Daze'. From Moroder-esque synths to musique concrete it’s a remarkable testament to his compositional skill and wide-ranging ambitions. Out on CD and vinyl double LP from Dark Entries.
