The Belgium-based Forced Nostalgia imprint follow up the excellent Cicciolina Holocaust and Sermonizer record and unleash their second LP with yet another industrial/post-punk gem rescued from obscurity. This was originally issued as a cassette on Cosmic Conspiracy back in 1988 and later received a CD release, but this is the first time the audio has been committed to the vinyl format. The album was recorded between 1985-1988 on Portastudio in upside-down land Sydney, Australia by Andy Rantzen, Justin Brandis, Bryce Cannon and Andrew Holmes. This version however has been re-jigged by label curator Fré De Voss but as I'm unfamiliar with the original issue I'm unable to make a comparison so can only consume and trust Fré's alternative vision of the album. Imagine everything that's interesting about the more organic and stripped back elements of groups like Chris & Cosey, Coil, PIL, 23 Skidoo, The Pop Group, Cabaret Voltaire, etc. all wrapped up in a black cloak of dark dubbed out funk brimming with subtle analogue synths, tape loops and found sounds complete with detached vocals and ritualistic drum machine rhythms. Fré's agenda of unearthing this stuff really is most admirable and judging by his knowledge of these almost forgotten works the future of Forced Nostalgia appears to be gripping to say the least.
