Ah the mysterious Karen Novotny X, what’s the deal with this ‘entity’? Almost too perfect to be over-looked all these years me thinks.
‘Join Hands’ was supposively written back in 1979 and totally hits the minimal/synth/cold wave nail on the head, almost as if they have the benefit of hindsight or something. Regardless, they are skilled practitioners. It’s not hard to imagine Chris Carter nodding approvingly from afar like Chuck Norris in ‘Sidekicks’.
Flip it and it’s Samantha Glass, another artist versed in the Sheffield circa ‘78/79’ meets Cologne ‘72/73’ sound, up to bat. ‘Near 86th’ is a hazy reflective composition and brings to mind a piece of motivational music I recall hearing on a staff training video whilst working at Epson back in mid-90s. Think mechanical yet strangely peaceful footage of modern technology being used to produce other modern technologies.
Keep ‘em coming, Deep Distance.

Some 7” singles skirt around on the edge of the lysergic abyss, while others like this one project out from the epicentre waiting to see who falls in to join it. Both sides are ace, coupled with the “lost tapes from 78” back story winding up the purists, total psychedelic perfection.

Both sides of this white vinyl'd beauty are wonderful.
Why get so excited over who, when and where when Karen Novotny once again show the way forward (from the past? Or the future? Now i'm doing it) with a piece of avant disco that is best served at full volume if possible. When i contacted them to say it was brilliant they didn't deny it. Odd.

Dan John, why do you sound so angry about this band?
Intrigued as to how exactly you contacted the band as they are
all in separate parts of the world and pretty much non contactable.
Anyway just enjoy this superb split 7. Both sides are wonderful. Turn it up, and forget about your fears. Its perfect future disco.

I quite like this, but if this is actually from 1978 I'll eat my hat. The 'band' are just some pranksters, they probably live in Stoke Newington and are twiddling their facial hair giggling about how clever they are. When I contacted them they didn't deny such a possibility. Odd.
