John Carpenter
Dark Star - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Dark Star was the first feature film that John Carpenter directed: he also, naturally, provided the soundtrack, a smorgasbord of synthy bleeps, bloops and tones. This reissue on we release whatever the fuck we want comes as a 12” with the OST and a 7” featuring an Alan Howarth rework and a locked groove of sound effects.

Satoshi Ashikawa
Still Way (Wave Notation 2)

In many ways a reissue of Satoshi Ashikawa’s 1982 LP Still Way (Wave Notation 2) is what WRWTFWW Records have been building to ever since they set up shop in the early 2010’s. Ashikawa’s spare, dreamlike environmental music has had a profound impact on the label’s output - it can be heard in everything from WRWTFWW’s reissues of Midori Takada and Mkwaju Ensemble to their recent set from Gareth Quinn Redmond. Taking cues from Brian Eno and Erik Satie, Ashikawa’s ultra-minimalist ambiences "intended to be listened to in a casual manner, as a musical landscape or a sound object”. Put on Still Way and let it melt into the background.

Gareth Quinn Redmond
Laistigh Den Ghleo

Laistigh Den Ghleo is a set of beautifully spare ambient compositions from Irish composer Gareth Quinn Redmond. For this record Redmond draws direct inspiration from Satoshi Ashikawa’s 1982 album Still Way (Wave Notation 2). Ashikawa said his music ‘should drift like smoke and become part of the environment surrounding the listener's activity’, and it’s easy to see Redmond taking this to heart in Laistigh Den Ghleo’s environmental watercolours. Midori Takada, another touchstone for Redmond, provides some of the liner notes.

Yutaka Hirose
Nova + 4

We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want continue to do just that with this new record. Nova + 4 collects a few works by renowned Japanese ambient composer Yutaka Hirose. Hirose’s acclaimed 1986 work Soundscapes 2: Nova appears here with around fifty minutes of previously-unreleased music in tow. These watercolour drones of sparse piano and birdsong are lovely in that Sarah Davachi sorta way.

Grauzone
Eisbär

12” single re-issue of ‘Eisbär’, the 1981 hit single from short-lived German outfit Grauzone. Meaning ‘polar bear’ in German and evoking an icy, Arctic atmosphere, this synthy post-punk gem was a substantial success in the band’s native country and is now regarded as a minor genre classic. Contains Grauzone’s two other minor hits ‘FILM 2’ and ‘Ich Lieb Sie’ on the B-side.

Colored Music
Colored Music

Japanese duo, Colored Music’s 1981 debut is for fans of weird and obscure music. Their sound is utterly their own, however, if you imagine David Bowie’s Berlin trilogy spliced with the work of Japanese electronic pioneer Haruomi Hosono, it may give you an insight into their world of spacey new wave, weird disco, avant-garde synth pop, proto-house and post-punk glam. Interested? LP and CD on WRWTFWW Records.

Normal Brain
Lady Maid

The most honest label in the world WRWTFWW (look it up) have reissued the long out of print album Lady Maid by Normal Brain. First released in 1981, that album showed how playful electronic music could be. Yukio Fujimoto used a number of synths to produce the album, but most alluring, he also used a Texas Instruments Speak & Spell. 

Dominique Guiot
L'Univers De La Mer

Exciting reissue of Dominique Guiot’s 1978 library album 'L'Univers De La Mer'. It’s a great lost treasure trove of moog, mellotron, guitar, and clarinet; like 70s prog stripped of grandiosity, the pure aim now exploration. It’s the sense of the composer’s unabashed intrigue in the possibilities of melody and sound that makes this such an endearing release, and where certain tones may have aged, the ideas at play remain timeless.

MKWAJU ensemble
MKWAJU

Over the past couple of years the We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want label have formed a strong bond with Japanese composer Midori Takada. As well as giving new life to Takada’s Through The Looking Glass and Lunar Cruise LPs the label has also taken a shine to the work of Takada’s Mkwaju Ensemble group. After reissuing the band's 1981 record KI-Motion back in June WRWTFWW have now come through with a new edition of MKWAJU (also 1981). The record sees the group collaborating with a young Joe Hisaishi, an artist you may well know from his work scoring several of the Studio Ghibli films. This music is a busy, rhythmically-driven offshoot of Takada’s vibrant post-minimalist xylophone explorations. Well worth a listen.

Bruno Spoerri
Rare & Unreleased 1971-1998

The fantastic We Release Whatever The F**K We Want Records (WRWTFWW) continue to shine the light on rare recordings. This time it's the Swiss electronic pioneer, Bruno Spoerri. Through a mix of samples and field recordings, Spoerri's experimentations move from playful to threatening and all within a mysterious electric soundscape.

EP-4
Lingua Franca-1

Kyoto sextet EP-4 first released this bizarre no-wave mutant funk album, rich with cheese-bass, drawled vocals and fab percussion, in 1983. WRWTFWW Records thinks you should hear it again in 2018 and it’s good advice. The pace tends to be quite slow and groovy, but speeds up a bit on the B side. Style ranges from grinning funk to mild freakout.

MKWAJU ensemble
KI-Motion

An unknown classic, KI-Motion is some of the finest percussion work you'll likely hear. Rhythms made meditative and minimalist, the MKWAJU Ensembl explored fertile ground in the world of ambience, influenced by the membership of legendary percussionist Midori Takada. A resonant masterstroke.

Bernard Parmegiani
Les Soleils de L’île de Pâques / La Brûlure de Mille Soleils (Original Soundtracks)

Apparently this record is for fans of 'explorations of the galaxy and of unexplored territories of the human mind' . . . how grand.  La Brûlure de Mille Soleils (1965) and Les Soleils de l’Île de Pâques (1972) are two previously unheard soundtracks from the acclaimed French composer Bernard Parmegiani. For fans of Pierre Schaeffer, François Bayle and Robert Cohen-Solal. Available on a gatefold double vinyl LP and digipak CD and released on WRWTFWW Records. 

Carmine Capobianco
Psychos In Love (Original Soundtrack)

At last, this 1986 no-budget slasher/romantic comedy theme song makes it onto wax for the cult fans. A deliberately shoddy song by Carmine Capobianco set to deliberately atrocious lyrics by director Gorman Bechard, this one indulges unashamedly in precisely the kind of silliness needed to go with such a film. as well as making Bechard’s opinion of grapes very clear indeed.

Robert Cohen-Solal
Les Shadoks

Les Shadoks was an animated French TV show that ran from 1968 till 1974, and its one that has built up a bit of a cult reputation over time. The soundtrack to this scintillating show was put together by Robert Cohen-Solal, a GRM-certified electro-acoustic composer with a playful touch. Whether you are a fan of the show or not, you really ought to hear this fabulously eclectic music. On WRWTFWW Records.

Amer (Colona Sonora Originale Del Film)

The 2009 film Amer is made by hardcore fans of Italian horror movie history, so naturally they really went to town on the soundtrack, using sounds by 70’s cult composer legends Stelvio Cipriani and Bruno Nicolai. Oh, and Ennio Morricone himself! Plus some ‘tension loops’ in the wax. 500 copies only, on We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want.

Midori Takada
Through The Looking Glass (2017 Re-Edition)

Midori Takada’s 1983 record Through The Looking Glass is an album much loved by minimal ambient fans and international percussion fans alike. Takada’s marimba is delicately caressed and manipulated, while an array of other instruments gently surround it. Reissued by we release whatever the fuck we want, on CD and two different vinyl editions, cut at different speeds.

Jun Fukamachi
Nicole (86 Spring and Summer Collection - Instrumental Images)

Super-rare (eg never actually officially released for sale before) library music from Japan, 1986. Jun Fukamachi was commissioned by the Nicole fashion brand to introduce their 86 Spring and Summer Collection, and he did so with these slick funky tracks, which have a profoundly 80’s sheen to them. Reissued by the Kraft label.

Bruno Spoerri
Voice Of Taurus

A nine-track record from the ever expanding mind of Bruno Spoerri. Another release that shows just how good improvised synth music can be and a great reminder that sci-fi soundtrack synths and futuristic-funk actually can be a cracking combination. Voice Of Taurus is available on vinyl LP from ‘We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want Records’.

Bruno Spoerri & Reto Weber
The Sound Of The UFOs

Collaboration between Swiss electronic and jazz musician Bruno Spoerri and percussionist Reto Weber made available for the first time since its release in 1978. Taking the biggest selection of synths you can imagine they take you on an intergalactic journey through improvisations that touch on krautrock, techno and spaced out electronics.

Nino Nardini
Musique Pour Le Future

For the first time in four decades Musique Pour Le Future by the universally infamous sonic experimentalist, cosmic curator and alleged time lord Nino Nardini (a.k.a. Georges Teperino) is available on vinyl. Out on We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want Records the continuum defying, imagined sci-fi score is presented in an irradiant future-proof cardboard sleeve! A cool collection of compositions and a fitting companion to works by Louis and Bebe Barron.

Piero Umiliani & I Suoi Oscillatori
Il Mondo Dei Romani

Italian avant-soundtrack man Piero Umiliani produced this strange music as an accompaniment to Il Mondo Dei Romani,  an early 70’s documentary about ancient Rome. Umiliani believed that the most appropriate music for the project would be a recreation of traditional instruments via a collection of synthesisers: remarkable sounds! Orange vinyl on We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want.

Pieces (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

1982’s Pieces is a dose of dramatic Italian horror, and films like these always come with an interesting soundtrack. Here we have contributions from many of the masters of the genre, including Fabio Frizzi, Stelvio Cipriani and Carlo Maria Cordo. Nice. Limited edition LP on the We Release Whatever The Fuck We Want label.
