Lena Platonos
Gallop

Amazing Greek synth-pop, retrieved from the mid-1980s by Dark Entries. Lena Platonos was highly influential in Greek electronic circles, and we can see why: her instrumentals are inventively constructed, and her gorgeously detached Greek-language vocals float serenely above. Gallop is a great record....view item »


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 Record...view item »


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&rsqu...view item »


Billy Nightmare

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 ...view item »

Victrola
Maritime Tatami

Whoever is acquainted with the history of new wave scene cannot but admit that there appeared to be enjoyed a very glorious period for electronic music. Among the best and most acclaimed names in Europe, some Italian artists emerged in the early 80s. Victrola is a duo from Messina and, unfortunately, &ldq...view item »

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.

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...view item »


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...view item »


Trisomie 21
Le Repos Des Enfants Heureux

First released in 1983, this mini-LP showcased what French post-punkers Trisomie 21 were all about: lush soundscapes, cinematic imagery and irresistibly moody melancholia.

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.

Deux Filles
Silence & Wisdom / Double Happiness

Deux Filles are one of those jolly good wheezes that some musicians like to play: Simon Fisher Turner and Colin Lloyd Turner made up a dramatic back-story about French teenagers which is worth a read, but these 2 albums (presented here together) are entirely their own work. Both 1982’s ...view item »


Robert Rental & Glenn Wallis
Untitled

Nice slice of industrial-ish jam music from the sessions of Robert Rental and Glenn Wallis, recorded with guitar and a Wasp synth but also using tape machines to loop, speed-switch and twist the sounds into woozy new shapes.

Peppermint Lounge
Perfect High

Dark Entries turn their attention to short lived German outfit Peppermint Lounge, who originally released Perfect High in 1983.

Alesia Cosmos
Exclusivo!

Strasbourg-based band Alesia Cosmos were only active long enough to make two albums, hence they’re just the kind of early 80s oddity that Dark Entries loves to reissue so dearly.

Group Rhoda
Wilderless

Dark Entries take a break from reissues to present the enchanting synth incantations of Oakland-based artist Group Rhoda. Warm, glutinous acid basslines and delicate lead lines provide the perfect synthy backdrop to Rhoda’s perfectly deadpan vocal turn, coming on like it’s 1983 and making it sound totally natural.

Helena Hauff
A Tape

Sometimes we all need our fix of hypnotic and paranoid beats on cassette, and that’s where Helena Hauff comes in.

Cockerill-Sombre

The Neon Judgement are another brick in Belgium’s sizzling early-80’s EBM / synth-wave scene.

Remastered for vinyl by George Horn, No Motive is the 1982 release from New York experimental rock outfit 3 Teens Kill 4.
