**Clear vinyl, includes two extra tracks and a download code redeemable from the label** Invada present a collection of unreleased instrumentals and analogue experiments by The KVB on vinyl for the first time. Originally issued thru the band's own Flesh Tapes in a super limited edition of 100 cassettes, 'Mirror Bein' serves to reveal another side of the duo, mixing the apocalyptic synth appeal of T2 and John Carpenter with a throbbing cyberpunk techno attitude in eight iterations. Guitars and vocals are largely subservient to drum machines and synths, resulting a sound more akin to Beppu's rec… Read more

**Extremely limited remastered vinyl reissue of the much sought after Swans debut EP. Originally released on Labor Records in 1982. Includes 12" x 12" lyric sheet insert** Bit of a must have, this: Swans debut record, originally issued on Labor Records in 1982, now reissued in conjunction with Mute a generation later. Sonically located at some distance from their current praxis, Swans self-titled maiden zinger emerged as one of the leanest, meanest from the early '80s No wave milieu, resetting rock music with a rude ounce of bounce in the trunk backed by a probing feel for the textures and dynamics o… Read more
**Originally a 7", now expanded to a 12" EP, with 3 bonus tracks from 1981** Joe Crow is a post-punk musician from Birmingham, England. He was a member of legendary Brum band The Prefects, and hung on long enough after the name-change to appear on a couple of early Nightingales singles. In 1981 Joe began his solo career and recorded a 2-song demo “Compulsion” and “Absent Friends.” Joe sent copies of the finished recordings to Cherry Red, who thanks to Lawrence of Felt, ended up releasing the single in 1982. An edited version of the single would later appear on the compilation Pillows &… Read more
Lydia Lunch's notorious 1990 recording, 'Conspiracy of Women' is given the rissue treatment by Nico Jaar's Other People boutique, augmented with a new remix/remaster of her 'American Invasion' hook-up with To Live And Shave in LA's Weasel Walter. In a nutshell, the No wave queen really lets off some steam, 50 minutes of stream-of-consciousness rants breaking down to 'I Just Got Back From LA' on the A-side, and 'Why, Why Was I Born An American' on the B-side. It's raw, unadulterated Lunch regurgitated for your shock and awe.
**Remastered reissue of primest post-punk, includes the brilliant slow disco move, 'Saving Grace', plus a two-sided newprint insert with never-before-seen photos, interview and liner notes** "Thomas Leer is an innovative electronic musician who was born in Port Glasgow, Scotland. He began singing for a local band at age 13, and was writing his own music by 18. By 1977, he had moved to London, where he fronted Pressure, a Clash-esque punk group with fellow experimental Scottish musician Robert Rental. After hearing Kraftwerk, Leer became interested in synthesizers – not long after, he was … Read more
Class electro tackle from Entro Senestre, fittingly for the Dutch label, Dekmantel. Following from his acclaimed Daywalker & CF session for L.I.E.S. with Willie Burns, this one is out and out electro in the mould of classic Drexciya, Bunker and Murder Capital, rocking darkside pads and slick 808s in 'The Screen' beside the fluid electro-house wriggle of 'Hit The Road' on the A-side, and flipping over to the E.R.P. like programming sophistication of 'Trials of Love' and the aquatic Transllusion nod, 'Slow Motion Disaster'.

**Edition of 500** Two of Copenhagen's most virulent collaborators meet again in this coarsely textured and visceral tribute to 'The Female Form'. Both long-serving members of the Posh Isolation posse, Loke Rahbek (Croatian Amor, Damien Dubrovnik, Lust For Youth) and Frederikke Hoffmeier a.k.a. Puce Mary have orbited each other for years, and were previously coupled up on 'The Closed Room' (2011), the first in a trilogy of collaborations, this being their 2nd. Recording at the loci of Copenhagen's Mayhem Complex as well as Stockholm's revered EMS facility, they animate a series… Read more

**Exceptional psych-o-tronic trips for fans of Mordant Music, Bellows, The Stranger or BEB!** Berlin's Another Dark Age label claim an idiosyncratic nether ground with LST's aleatoric enigma, 'Th Duo'. Staking a unique position just behind the ear, right at the back of your bonce, Melbourne's Tarquin Manek (a.k.a. half of BEB's Tarcar) quietly mines his very own "lo-sci-fi" style in this series of nine corrupted memory implants meshing frayed nerves and fragmented, extra-terrestrial frequencies. The process of 'Th Duo''s creation, junked together from recordings made on mobile phones and micro cassettes,… Read more

Facsimile, affordable repress of the darkside Italo act's debut 1981 mini-album. Pure disco glamour gloom in four parts, including the EBM-driven 'News', the eerie sashay of 'No One Notice Them', the theatrical 'Rays', and bummed-out Manchester vibes of 'Autumn Room'. Classic.

*Ships Friday* Luis Vasquez a.k.a. The Soft Moon nails his strongest, most-malleable take on post-punk/wave techno to date with third album, 'Deeper'. Since his last LP effort, 'Zeros', he's moved from Oakland, CA to Venice, Italy, with numerous raids on Berlin between. This has clearly influenced his sound, lending a more stringent focus and amped-up studio production ringing deeply true with his mix of formative influences; American EBM muscle and synthetic European emotions. It's kinda what we hoped the last Cold Cave album would sound like, before it went horribly wrong and Fernow scarpered. RIYL Silent Servant, Lust For Youth, Factory Floor.

Another monstrous blow-out from Craig Clouse's $&$, returning to Rocket Recordings after assaults on Diagonal and ahead of their Editions Mego LP. Brandishing distorted guitars, clogged samplers and bucket-loads of gonzo attitude, Clouse runs amok from the diesel-fuelled horsepower of 'Electric Pony 2' to a loping, trunk-rattling beat jam, 'Egg Mm-Muffin / Pimp Different' via daft sampler exercise, 'C2-6', to cracked and swaggering breakbeats in 'Goat $hit' and the ruder clip of 'Love Your Hair - Hope You Win!'. And the potential song-title of the year award goes to 'Writing Poetry On Your Forehead With The Tip Of a Hunting Knife'. Wot a charmer.

**2LP, 30 tracks** Important compendium of early works by London's unsung industrial pioneers, Bourbonese Qualk. In constant operation from 1979 - 2003 on the fringes of the breakcore/extreme electronics scene, this selection looks at a crucial phase in BQ's agitations, bang in the middle of the '80s, located in a South London squat/stronghold/studio amidst the The Miner's Strike, Falklands War, Thatcherism and Anarchism. They've always wilfully existed on the periphery, but haven't gone unnoticed, whether on their 1985 joint 'Pogrom' (included here) or their continued su… Read more

**One half of minimal synth souls Xeno & Oaklander ups the visceral noise quotient to noxious, compelling degrees** "Gyors, Lassù marks an important milestone in the evolution of Martial Canterel's music, progressing far beyond the cages of “minimal synth” and embracing the noisier qualities of its sound with a renewed urgency, a kind of thickness embodied in multiple layers using only eurorack, Serge and Roland 100 modular systems at his disposal and flushing out the entire session in one take. Sine waves are rendered into walls of guitar-like noise on songs like “And I Thought”, while … Read more

**Housed in an amazing spot-gloss printed jacket designed by Guy Featherstone. Mastered by Matt "The Alchemist" Colton. Edition of 700** Diagonal pull another coup with 12"s of brute bitterness from Philip Best, Sarah Froelich and Russell Haswell's Consumer Electronics. With the spray of their blinding 'Estuary English' still wet on our cheek, 'Repetition Reinforcement' is a bruising, visceral reminder of CE's position on the periphery of extreme electronic music. Holding steadfast to the transgressive subject matter which Best has explored since the early '80s as part … Read more
