BEZIER - PRIMES
'Primes' represents the theme of primordial origins and creation with three tracks that explore disparate, sonic environments in each song. The title track flows and ebbs like currents in an oil slick. Out of something messy (like primordial ooze) arises organized chaos. "Stranger" is a moody dark electro/wave track for a sweaty night cruising on the west coast of Holland. Set against an underwater sound canvas the song features seductive guest vocals and lyrics by Nicole Ginelli. Doc Sleep of Jacktone Records provides additional production duties. The final track, "Imperial Tranz Am", is an airy, ethereal slow burner clocking in at over 13 minutes. It originally appeared as the soundtrack to an experimental queer fantasy film of the same name by SF film maker Aron Kantor. All songs have been mixed by Mark Pistel (Meat Beat Manifesto, Consolidated) at Room 5, San Francisco and EQed for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. The vinyl comes housed in a jacket featuring a Quadtone pastel earthtone of pixelated celluar ooze designed by Eloise Leigh. Each EP includes a postcard with an image still from the 'Imperial Tranz-Am' movie.

CALENDAR CROWD - PERFECT HIDEAWAY EP
Calendar Crowd was the duo of Alan Heaton and Terence Tiernan who met in their hometown of Widnes, Cheshire as schoolboys and played together in various bands in the '70s. In the '80s they formed a 6-piece band called Room For Humans and recorded one single "Telephone Telephone / Girlfriend". When the band split and Alan and Terence continued as Calendar Crowd in a more experimental direction. Their influences were wide reaching: Kraftwerk, Neu, Cabaret Voltaire, Eno, PIL, and Joy Division. In 1982 they released their debut single "Perfect Hideaway/Perfect Hideaway Dub" on 7". Guitarist David Knowles joined them as they toured the UK and recorded and released their follow up EP "Listen in to the Heart" in 1985. A reviewer at the time called Calendar Crowd "A Moody Merseyside trio with strong atmospheric tunes and haunting lyrics." For this reissue we've compiled both singles on one EP featuring all four songs.

CHARLIE - SPACER WOMAN
The next 12" in Dark Entries Editions is the Italo Disco dance classic "Spacer Woman" by Charlie. Formed in 1983 as an experiment to break the mold of the classic disco dance sound, Charlie was the vehicle for musician and producer Maurizio Cavalieri who had found fame with Italian disco group Firefly. Cavalieri had been listening to the new crop of UK Synthpop and New Wave like Depeche Mode and Heaven 17 and wanted to create a more electronic, futuristic sound. He recruited his friend Giorgio Stefani to help write the song and compose lyrics. "Spacer Woman" was recorded in Vicenza, Italy and released by Cavalieri's own Mr. Disc Organization in 1983. The track features the signature Italo Linn Drum machine as well as the Roland TR-808 and a Yamaha DX7 for the arpeggiated synthesizer melody. "Spacer Woman" spans over seven-minutes and features the spaced-out vocals of Stefani's wife, who sings through a vocoder. The single has become a cult revival track since its appearance on the legendary I-f mix CD ''Mixed Up In The Hague'' in 2001. This reissue also features the sought after instrumental mix where the sharp synthesized bassline really comes to the forefront. For the first time ever, the 12" is housed in a silver, metallic picture sleeve with an android female model drawing, taken from the original 7" jacket. Each copy includes a 2-sided post card insert with lyrics. Eerie and unforgettable more than 30 years later, "Spacer Woman" is the ideal robotic space-age love song.

CODEC - CLOSER/TAM TAM
Codek is the brainchild of Jean-Marie Salaun who grew up in Paris influenced by the folklore of the inner city. The recording of "Tam Tam" and "Closer" spanned over two years. They started on 16-track in Studio d'Auteuil, where JM blew the woofers, before resuming in Studio Centre Georges Pompidou with an added 8-track recorder. Jean-Marie was producing other bands, and a lot of this was recorded on "borrowed" studio time. The single was released in 1981 on West African Music, a tiny label from the Ivory Coast, and was re-released a year later by Island Records in the UK (where the B-side was re-named "Tim Toum"). Both tracks were staples in the DJ sets of Beppe Loda and Daniele Baldelli, finding a spiritual home in the Cosmic scene of Italy. Both songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is an exact replica of the 1981 edition with artwork by Angela Boy, inspired by primitive electronics and African paintings. Each copy includes an doubles-sided insert with photos and liner notes by Jean-Marie Salaun.

CRASH COURSE IN SCIENCE - SIGNALS FROM PIER THIRTEEN
Crash Course in Science are a post punk band that formed in 1979 in Philadelphia.The band members, Dale Feliciello, Mallory Yago and Michael Zodorozny, met while attending art school. They began to experiment with crude electronics and off-beat writing. CCIS avoids conventional instrumentation by using toy instruments and kitchen appliances to augment the distorted guitar, drums and synthesized beats.Their first single, "Cakes in the Home" was released in 1979 and their 4-song 12? EP "Signals From Pier Thirteen" in 1981. Pier 13 was an abandoned coal-loading pier along the Delaware River near where CCIS rehearsed. The band went there often and was inspired by the huge silent machinery, shapes, shadows, ghosts and debris. The songs Cardboard Lamb' and Flying Turns' quickly became club favorites during the early 80's. This EP's raw, percussive sound influenced both techno and industrial music in later years. CCIS feel a strong connection to Throbbing Gristle, although they consider themselves as working in a parallel universe rather than being influenced by them. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl is housed in the original jacket featuring stark black and white photos of Pier 13. Each LP includes a double sided 11x11 insert with lyrics, photos of the band and the atmospheric pier. Crash Course in Science go above and beyond what is considered ew Wave' in attitude and sound.

FOKEWULF 190 - BODY HEAT
Fockewulf 190 was a New Wave group from Milan formed in 1980 by Vittorio Barozzi aka Victor Life and Dario Dell'Aere. In 1979 the duo met outside a cinema and began a lifelong collaboration of projects: Diamond Dogs, Ice Eyes, Demode Boulevard and Fockewulf 190, named after the model jet planes Dario fanatically built. Musically, the duo were inspired by the Human League's "Reproduction" and John Foxx's "Metamatic", while they took visual cues from the New Romantics Visage and Ultravox. With the Fockewulf 190 moniker, they created their own dark blend of Italo disco and New Wave, and released two singles in 1984 and recorded an album's worth of music that eventually saw the light of day in 2010. The debut single "Body Heat" was released in 1984 on Market Records with the band's name misspelled as Fokewulf and vocals wrongly credited to Dario. Clocking in at over 6-minutes, the song features Fred's New Beat style vocals over melancholic, sweeping keyboards and hard edged drum rhythm patterns. On the B-side is an instrumental version with the occasional "Hey you take a look at me" chorus. All songs have been remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The record is housed in an exact replica of the original jacket featuring a black and white mannequin bust shrouded in fog by Filippo Maniscalco. Each copy includes a double-sided postcard with lyrics, notes and photos. This reissue is dedicated to Vittorio Barozzi aka Victor Life who passed away in 2014.

GREYHOUSE - NEW BEATS THE HOUSE
Greyhouse was the first of many aliases adopted by Dutch DJ/producer Marcel Hol. In the late 80's the first signs of 90's optimism and euphoria started. Marcel was young, creative and ambitious because he got his hands on some new equipment like the sampler. Electronic music was within reach. Greyhouse landed a recording contract with Hip Hop Records, a dance label founded by Erik Van Vliet based in Rotterdam. In 1989 he released his debut single "Move To The Groove / New Beats The House." Renaat Vandepapeliere from R & S Records cleverly spotted the record's potential. re-releasing it with "New Beats The House" as the A-side With this new exposure the song became one of the biggest hits of a New Beat sub-genre called Hard Beat. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.

IMPLOG - HOLLAND TUNNEL DIVE
impLOG was the solo project of Don Christensen after leaving New York No Wave group The Contortions in 1979. He began making music using found sounds, a Univox drum machine, guitar stomp boxes, Casio keyboards and percussion instruments. Eventually Don gave a demo tape to Charles Ball at Lust/Unlust Records, who loved it, and released the "Holland Tunnel Dive" b/w "On B'way" 12" in 1980. "Holland Tunnel Dive" is a monotone lament, with a narrator reciting a list of all that is missing in his life along to a sparse, mechanical beat. A variable speed Milwaukee drill creeps its way into the song, eventually reaching cacophonous levels. After four minutes of industrial motorik, an upbeat saxophone riff breaks out unexpectedly, unsettling the listener even further. On the B-side is a deranged version of the Lieber and Stoller show tune "On Broadway", featuring lead guitar by Jody Harris of the Contortions. The record perfectly captures the dark and seedy vibe of downtown New York in the early 80's. All songs have been remastered from the original master tapes for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is an exact replica of the original. On the front cover is an illustration of a hydraulic pump against a taxi-cab yellow background. Each copy includes a double sided insert with lyrics, never before seen photos and liner notes by Don Christensen.

IMS - DANCING THERAPY
Dark Entries Editions is honored to celebrate the 30th anniversary "Dancing Therapy" by International Music System, often abbreviated as I.M.S. In 1983 Maurizio Cavalieri and Giorgio Stefani, the same musicians who brought you "Spacer Woman" by Charlie, created International Music System in Vicenza, Italy. Under this moniker, the two would release a pair of albums of stylized and syncopated electronic dance songs showcasing the still-evolving advancement of computer and keyboard-generated music. "Dancing Therapy" was released as a 12" single in 1984 on the Cavalieri's own Mr Disc Records. It utilized the Roland TR-808, Yamaha DX7 and Linn Drum as the main percussion. Giorgio would hit the two sides of a metal triangle with a drum stick, creating the high pitched tone break throughout the song. Guest vocalist Rebecca McLain, an American ballet dancer, sings about getting lost in music as a means to escape from your troubles. The single anticipated the beats and sounds of Freestyle music as well as influencing the early House scene due to radio airplay on Chicago's WBMX. On the B-side is "Love Games", an electro dance song with breakbeats in the vein of Afrika Bambaataa that features Giorgio on vocals. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy jacket with original artwork featuring an iconic photo with each band member in side profile view. Each copy includes a post card insert with lyrics and liner notes.

INHALT - OCCUPATIONS EP
Dark Entries is proud to release the sophomore EP "Occupations" from San Francisco based synth trio INHALT. Consisting of European and East Coast natives- Matia Simovich, Bryan Gibbs, and Philip Winiger- INHALT's core operative strategy is of sonic fidelity and integrity rather than nostalgia. Living through the rise of a surveillance society, neo-liberal agendas, and the permeation of the ephemeral into popular culture, INHALT return with a focused commentary in the form of the "Occupations" EP. The record was produced over a year and a half, and mixed in both Austria and California, employing the best of modern and vintage techniques and technology. The sound is INHALT's interpretation of the border between the voice driven song form and the expansive, extended 12? arrangement. It is informed equally by the soundtracks of John Carpenter, as much as the vastness and sheen of Trevor Horn. INHALT wrote and produced the EP in their own Bunker Studio in San Francisco. The A side was mixed by INHALT in San Francisco, while Side B was mixed with the help of Werner Freistätter in Türnitz, Austria. Paul Lavigne mastered the EP in London, England at Walls of Sound and George Horn put the final EQ curve at Fantasy Studios, Berkeley. Each EP is housed in a specially designed jacket by Leo Merz and includes a lyric sheet.

KROOTCHEY - QU'EST-CE QU'LL A (D'PLUS QUE MOI CE NEGRO LA
Philippe Krootchey was a musician, DJ, radio and television host born in Versailles, France in 1954. In the early 1970s he joined political gay liberation movement Revolutionary Homosexual Action Front (Front Homosexuel d'Action Révolutionnaire) that gave radical visibility to homosexuals. Turning to the decadent nightclub scene of Paris, Philippe became one of the most important disc jockeys of the late 70s and early 80s holding residencies at les Bains-Douches and the Privilège. Philippe's look was striking and his elegance and charisma massive. In 1984 Krootchey released his debut single "Qu'est c'qu'il a (d'plus que moi ce négro là?)" on disco label Casablanca Records. Subsequently the single was re-released the same year but sung in English as "Whatazzy". For this release he teamed up with former Love International bandmate Fred Versailles, who shared his love for Kraftwerk and Yellow Magic Orchestra as well as glam rock and 70's black American soul music. Fred remembers, "The idea was to send a message about racism against black people with a humorous tone. The French title translates to "What has this nigger got, that I do not have?" Reversing the racial scales, Philippe (who is black) would get the girls and the fame, making white people jealous. It was Philippe's tactful way to joke about racism he had experienced and overcame." The result is a slick synthetic funk and electro boogie reminiscent of Grandmaster Flash and Afrika Bambata. Philippe rap and subverting racism at the same time. On the B-side is "Voodoo" a slowed down instrumental dub version that stretches out the original to over 7-minutes. Sadly on September 2, 2004 Philippe Krootchey died of a cerebral aneurysm, just short of celebrating his 50th birthday. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. For the jacket Philippe asked his friends Pierre et Gilles to do the cover artwork. They made a portrait of Philippe as chocolate powder mascot "Banania" inspired advertisement with a wide grin and red fez cap. This was a radical criticism on the embodiment of racism still present in the 1980s from the colonial Era in France. Each copy includes two postcards with lyrics, photos and liner notes by Fred Versailles.

LOOKY LOOKY - FLAMINGO BOOTS
Looky Looky is the new project from Jeffrey Sfire and Ian Clark, both residing in Detroit, Michigan. The pair met in the late 90s when Ian was performing as one half of Le Car with Adam Miller of ADULT. Ian also recorded under the moniker Perspects, and released on Clone, Ersatz Audio and Interdimensional Transmissions. Jeffrey has released a series of singles and remix EPs with Samuel Long as SFIRE on CockTail d'Amore Music and Ultramajic. Looky Looky describe the project as equal parts light and dark, a contemporary recasting of Italo, Hi-NRG and electro. The songs infuse bright 0s sonic textures with a seedy, sweaty thump. The Motor City duo is about a year into the project, but is already known for their hardware-heavy live set after playing the Honcho Summer Campout last year and the 2017 edition of Gays Hate Techno in northern California. All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. Each jacket features a collage by Chicago-based artist Nicole Ginelli of a Nagel-esque face with a mauve/grey color scheme with fuchsia and green accents. Also included is a postcard with notes and a photo of the duo.

MONO BAND - GHOST TOWN
Dark Entries Editions is proud to reissue "Ghost Town" the 1984 debut 12" single by Mono Band from Italy. The project was conceived by producer Rene D'Herin and Massimo Fantinatiti aka Fantenax. They teamed up with songwriter and guitarist Luigi Venegoni aka Svengile who had previously worked with progressive and jazz-rock bands Arti & Mestieri and Venegoni & Co. as well as cosmic disco group Stratosferic Band. Treading the lines between Italo Disco and the darker side of New Wave, the trio crafted a mysterious sound. Melancholic arpeggiators, a throbbing baseline, stuttering samples, and the classic Linn drum machine run throughout the track. Vocals were handled by an uncredited Carlo Rossi who raps about a ghost town filled with fear. When female vocalist Elena Sansonetti begins to softly whisper the chorus one might get goose bumps. The trio were joined in the studio by DJ Mike aka Michele Paolino of Make Up/Mike Up, DJ Moody, Fabrice Bellini of Art Fine and producer Miceli. The song was recorded in a few days at Dynamo Sound Studio in Turin and originally released on the popular Discomagic Records. This reissue includes the original vocal version, backed with a longer dubbed out instrumental "Ghost Version" on the B-side. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The 12" is housed in an exact replica of the original sleeve with an astrological photo the planets orbiting the sun. Each copy also includes a 2-sided postcard.

NIGHT MOVES - TRANSDANCE EP
Dark Entries is proud to present all four mixes of "Transdance" by Night Moves as a tribute dedicated to the lives lost in the Oakland Ghost Ship fire on December 2, 2016. Night Moves was the brainchild of Michael Guihen, from Pimlico, south London. Inspired by seeing Tubeway Army perform on Top of the Pops in 1979 he placed an ad to form a synth-based band in the NME. In November 1980 he was introduced to Denis Haines, formerly Gary Numan's keyboardist on the Telekon album. Michael played Denis some demo tracks and one track, "Transdance" stood out. Denis and Michael worked closely together and they wrote a number of backing tracks. One of these was the farewell song from Gary Numan to his band Tubeway Army, "Love Needs No Disguise". In return for this backing track Denis gave Michael studio time to develop "Transdance". All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Housed in the original jacket featuring a black and white photograph of two mannequins dancing set against a melon hue. Each copy includes a 2-sided insert with lyrics and drawings of all 36 victims of the Oakland Ghost Ship fire. Each copy also included a 6 page press kit with liner notes, clippings and photographs from the band's archive. 100% of all profits will be donated to the Oakland Fire Immediate Relief Fund.

NU SOUND II CREW/MAGNUS II - SPLIT
Dark Entries is excited to reissue a split EP of rare and out of print Detroit Electro jams from Nu Sound II Crew and Magnus II. Both were projects of mastermind Sam Anderson aka DJ Maestro. Growing up on the westside of Detroit, Maestro joined the Marine Corps in 1979 and was turned on to electronic music. One of his fellow Marines was a DJ from Brooklyn who schooled Maestro on how to mix records, blending dance songs seamlessly. While stationed on base in California, he set up a DJ crew called Nu Sounds and perfected his technical skills. He returned to Detroit in 1984 and auditioned for the Electrifying Mojo on WJLB. It was there that he met the Godfather of Techno, Juan Atkins, who introduced him to emerging new sounds of dance & party music. Juan showed him how to make and record music using a Roland 808 and 909, Linn Drum and a Boss DR-55 drum machine. In 1986 Maestro created a new alias for himself, Nu Sound II Crew, by adding a roman numeral II to his former DJ crew name. That year he self-released his first 12" single "The Speed Of Light" on Sound Wave Records. Only 500 copies were made and distributed by Juan Atkins' Metroplex Records. Influenced by Kraftwerk and Cybotron, Nu Sound II Crew created fresh, fast, dark electro beats with tough drum machines and lyrics about traveling through outer space. A second single was released that same year, "1001 Beats", a slower, deep and heavy vocoder track with guitar by Jerome Blackwell that riffs the Batman Theme during the break. By the late 1980s, Maestro was using different alias such as Sam and Dave, Zetta, and Magnus II to make it look like a lot of artists were on his new label Steppin' Forward Records. Magnus II was named after guitarist Jeff Magnus who plays on the sole 12" single from the project "Roctronic/Space Age" released in 1993. For this EP reissue, all 3 original mixes of "Space Age" are included: LP Version, Dub, and Remix. "Space Age" blends EBM rhythms with tough drum machine beats to create an electro hybrid somewhere between Belgium and Detroit. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is specially designed by Eloise Leigh and features original illustrations from 1988 by Kevin Mann of an Egyptian pharaoh "steppin' forward" and the Roman numeral II. Each copy includes a post card with a photo of the Nu Sounds crew DJing in 1984.

PLATONOS, LENA - SUN MASKS REMIXES
We've recruited four of our favorite contemporary producers to remix their favorite tracks from 'Sun Masks'. First up is "Lego" remixed by triple scorpio supernova Avalon Emerson, who is based in Berlin. Her remix morphs the track into a solid dancefloor twister. Next is "Lego" remixed by Lena Willikens, Cologne based DJ and resident at Salon Des Amateurs in Düsseldorf. She provides a deep and psychedelic journey through the darker shadows of the early night or morning. On the B-side is New Yorker and Firehouse Recordings boss Kim Ann Foxman remixing "Hoping By Shopping". She transforms the spacey robotic vocoder track into a dynamic deep house workout, tough and dreamy all at once. Closing out the EP is a remix of "Wrong Love" by Berlin via Bucharest producer Borusiade aka Miruna Boruzescu. Enhancing the original melancholic piano ballad to a cosmic processional with poignant bass lines that build and recess like the ocean tides. All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is a reinterpretation of the original 'Sun Masks' cover, isolating the photograph of Lena wearing sunglasses designed by Eloise Leigh.

PSYCHIC TV - ALIEN BE-IN
Dark Entries Editions is venturing into new waters with a remix EP of Psychic TVs classic Acid House song "Alien Be-In". Psychic TV was formed by Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson after the breakup of Throbbing Gristle in 1981. After various line up changes, the band shifted direction to dance oriented songs influenced by the Acid House scene in America. By 1988 experimental electronic musician Fred Giannelli, of Turning Shrines, joined the band and over the next 2 years started to record songs for "Toward The Infinite Beat". The album was a mix of deep, multilayered tracks full of bright and hypnotic dance numbers, providing the soundtrack to the rave culture that sprung up in the UK in the 90s. "Alien Be-In" was written in early 1989 on an E-mu Emax Sampler and an Alesis MMT-8 sequencer. Vocal samples were taken from a tape American investigative reporter Don Bolles sent to Genesis. A didgeridoo rides throughout the song, heavily modulated by a Gristleizer creating a hypnotic effect. Near the end of the song the breakbeat slides out of time yet the band chose to leave this in because it sounded strange and fit the concept of the track. Genesis played a spaced out Echo Violin and the band used 360 degree panning rotation devices. For this reissue Fred Giannelli takes a stab at remixing the mono mix of the original sequence sourced from the Emax floppy discs. On the flip are two brand new mixes, the first from Los Angeles based producer, Silent Servant, who updates the classic with his modern brand of driving EBM techno. The second remix is a team effort from Silent Servant and veteran producer John Tejada, that re-creates the original melody using a Roland TR-808 and TB-303, paying homage to early Chicago Acid House artists like Lil Louis and Robert Owens. All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The 12" is housed in a mind-alerting, metallic silver die-cut sleeve and a neon green label that pops through, featuring the psychic skull transformed into an alien cone head label all designed by Eloise Leigh. Each copy includes a 2-sided 11x11 square insert with black and white photo of the band from 1988 and liner notes by Fred Giannelli.

The project is a collaboration between Miami born-and-bred Mystic Bill Torres (Trax, Relief, Classic) and native New Yorker Jake Reif (Device Control, Upsetting Keys). Jake spent some musically formative years in the Midwest, drawing influence from the cultures of Chicago and Detroit. Fueled by the underground energy of warehouse and loft parties of the era, he began his DJ career in the early 1990s. Bill grew up going to goth and industrial clubs in Miami before moving to Chicago where he held residencies at clubs with Johnny Fiasco, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, and Ralphi Rosario. The duo is heavily influenced by the early Chicago house and Detroit techno sounds as well as European electronic body music like Front 242 and Liaisons Dangereuses. The sparse simplicity of the machine gun synth work & monotone Spanish vocals by Mystic Bill evoke classic 80's industrial and art house dance tracks. We've included the instrumental version for adventurous DJs who want play doubles. On the B-side are two versions of the track "Animals". Version 1 explores the underbelly of NY with maniacal industrial rhythms and samples from Diamanda Galas and Travis Bickle (Robert DeNiro) in Taxi Driver. Version 2 ventures into dark freestyle territory, fueled by the underground energy of Chicago's Warehouse and Medusas clubs. All songs have been mastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. The vinyl comes housed in a jacket with hand drawn illustration of night time jungle themes designed by Eloise Leigh and screen printed in muted teal pantone on french environment paper by Stumptown Printers. Each EP includes a postcard with a black and white photograph of the duo.

SERIES - A - EVOLUTION / TECHNOLOGY
Series-A was the duo of Sam Anderson aka DJ Maestro and Dave Webb aka Kid Fresh. Sam and Dave both grew up listening to the sounds of the Electrifying Mojo on WJLB in Detroit. They met in 1983 at a DJ gig that they were both hired to play. In 1986, they collaborated on the Nu-Sound II Crew project. After developing a friendship with Juan Atkins, they became hip to the emerging new club sounds that were to become electro and techno. Their subsequent project, Series-A, was named after different car model numbers, but also hints at the evolution of humankind into a new species.

SHOC CORRIDOR - A BLIND SIGN
Shoc Corridor was the London post-punk quartet of Paul O'Carroll (Voice, Synth), Andy Garnham (Synth, Drum), Chris Davis (Guitar, Bass, E-Bow) and Nogi Prass (Synth) named after the Sam Fuller film from 1963. Chris met Nogi shortly after moving to London in 1979 - they started playing music together, fell madly in love, and decided to form a band. They recruited Andy, who had previously played in a band with Stephen Luscombe of Blancmange, and lyricist and vocalist Paul. Their influences were wide reaching: Kraftwerk, Neu, Cabaret Voltaire, Brian Eno, PIL, and Joy Division. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. Each EP comes in an exact replica of the original jacket, designed by Chris Davis with artwork by Paul and Jerry Neal. Each copy includes an 8x11" 2-sided insert with liner notes, lyrics and photos designed by Eloise Leigh.

SMERSH - SELECTED DEEP HOUSE ANTHEMS
Dark Entries returns to the New Jersey basement studio of Smersh to unearth a 4-track selection from the Deep House Anthems cassette. Smersh was the duo of Mike Mangino and Chris Shepard, who began making music together in 1978. They were uninterested in traditional notions of songwriting or live performance. Recording in a domestic setting necessitated the abandonment of live drums for rhythm machines, and the Smersh sound would gradually change with each new bit of gear they acquired. Most songs revolve around driving EBM style beats, intricate industrial noise manipulation and synth melodies. All songs were originally recorded and released in 1991, and this the first time all but one of these songs are appearing on vinyl. Each song has been carefully remastered from the cassette originals for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a replica of the Deep House Anthems sleeve which designer Eloise Leigh modified using art motifs and textures sourced from the original cassette, plus an oversized postcard with notes.

SMERSH - SIDEWAYS
Dark Entries returns to the New Jersey basement studio of Smersh to unearth an 18-minute jam session from 1989, backed with two contemporary remixes. Smersh was the duo of Mike Mangino and Chris Shepard from Piscataway, NJ who began making music together in 1978. They were uninterested in traditional notions of songwriting or live performance. Between 1981 and 1993 they released over 40 cassette albums on their own Atlas King imprint. As these tapes traded their way across continents, Smersh developed a devoted following in places far beyond New Jersey, leading to releases on dozens of other labels from around the globe.

SOLITARY DANCER - DUALISM
Dark Entries are honored to release 'Dualism', the sophomore EP from contemporary Montreal-based duo, Solitary Dancer. They released an eponymously titled debut EP on Midland's label Graded in late 2016 after their track Desire & Apathy was featured in his Essential Mix. They are known for their elegant, richly-sculpted sound design and knack for propulsive club rhythms that eschew rigid 4/4 drum patterns. All songs have been mastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The record is housed in a custom made jacket designed by Eloise Leigh, featuring photographs by Scott Pilgrim, which explores themes of duality- an individual looking into a mirror, conjuring the image of a mannequin. A juxtaposition highlighting the ideal as the female self. Each copy includes a double-sided postcard with notes.

VICTROLA - MARITIME TATAMI
Victrola, the duo of Antonio "Eze" Cuscinà and Carlo Smeriglio from Italy. The band formed in Messina, but later relocated to Florence to join the rich musical scene there with Neon, Pankow, Alexander Robotnick and Diaframma. Beginning as a 4-piece combo (two guitarists, bassist, drummer) in 1979, they slimmed down to a synthesizer and guitar-based duo a few years later. Their sole release was the "Maritime Tatami"/"A Game Of Despair" EP, from 1983. Using an array of now-classic Roland synthesizers (TR 606, TR 303 Bassline, Juno 6) plus a Korg Polysix and Fender Stratocaster, they crafted two darkwave ballads. Each song has been carefully remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in an exact replication of the original jacket, and includes an insert with lyrics and never-before-seen photos. Victrola's only release is a truly singular and timeless masterpiece-it's from a dimension of its own.

VIRGINIA - BLUE PYRAMID
Dark Entries and Emotional Rescue team up to further explore Psychic TV's Acid House years. Psychic TV was formed by Genesis P-Orridge and Peter Christopherson of Throbbing Gristle with Alex Fergusson of Alternative TV in 1981. After various line up changes, the band shifted direction to dance oriented songs influenced by the House and Techno scenes of Detroit and Chicago. By 1988 the group included Dave Ball of Soft Cell, Fred Giannelli of Turning Shrines and Matthew Best of Carcrash International. During the summer of 1988 the group recorded a batch of songs at Time Square Studios in London that would appear under the guise of various artists compilations Jack The Tab' and ¶ekno Acid Beat'. The idea behind these ompilations' of imaginary artists was creating a sense that a healthy acid house scene existed in the UK. Virginia was the studio project of Dave "Mista Luv" Ball and then-wife Virginia "Gini" Ball, a classical violinist who toured and recorded with Siouxsie and the Banshees and Marc Almond.

3 TEENS KILL 4 - NO MOTIVE
3 Teens Kill 4 was born in the summer of 1980 in the East Village of New York City. They took their name from a New York Post headline. The group consisted of Doug Bressler, Brian Butterick, Julie Hair, Jesse Hultberg, David Wojnarowicz. There was a conscious decision not to have a front person or lead singer. David made cassette tapes with voices and sounds that he held up close to a microphone, fast-forwarding and rewinding. Julie tried different rhythms on a Korg rhythm machine. Brian played a Casio drum machine and Jesse was on bass. Doug joined the group in time to make the debut album. He was a music lover who understood how to avoid covering over the band's non-musicality. Their debut 7-song mini-album "No Motive" was recorded in Fall 1982 and self-released in 1983. Utilizing rhythm boxes, tapes of news reports, odd percussion tools, snatches of song, they chanted political narrative ideas about the modern mess at the time. The album is an amalgam of urban life, a twisted, anti-rhetorical approach to social issues. Songs weave together to create an intelligent, jarring sound. Razor sharp guitar licks and hauntingly ominous bass lines create a tense, oblique abstraction of pain and chaos. For this reissue we've added 3 previously unreleased bonus tracks. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. The jacket features a replica of the original front cover with a black and white photo by Seiji Kakizaki and updated back cover featuring a never before seen collage by David Wojnarowicz. Each copy includes a 12-page booklet with liner notes from each band member, photos, lyrics and press clippings. We've also printed a special 12"x24" fold out diptych painting by David Wojnarowicz whom this reissue is dedicated to.

ALESIA COSMOS - EXCLUSIVO!
Alésia Cosmos was a collective of musicians led by Bruno de Chénerilles formed in the early 1980s in Strasbourg, France. The group consisted of Pascal Holtzer (guitar, synthesizer, tapes, drum machine, vocals), Pierre Clavreux (vocals, gong), Marie-Berthe Servier (vocals), Bruno (guitar, tapes, synthesizer, drum machine, vocals) and Tunisian percussionist Lotfi Ben Ayed (darbukas, bendir). In 1981 Bruno composed and wrote some sci-fi radio plays for French state radio channel France Culture. Under the influences of William Burroughs, John Cage, Pierre Henry and others, he developed tape music studio work. By 1982 he appeared for the first time under the name Alésia Cosmos Furi Show. It was a solo performance on guitar, voice, analog synth and tapes. This experimental show lead to a music project based on Bruno and Pascal's compositions to be performed and recorded with other musicians in the beginning of 1983. Exclusivo! was the group's debut album recorded and self-released in 1983 on Planetarium.

ARMS OF SOMEONE NEW - SUSAN SLEEPWALKING
The Arms of Someone New was formed in 1983 in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois by Mel Eberle and Steve Jones. They modeled their sound after the melancholic side of Factory Records, The Cure's "Faith" period and The Teardrop Explodes. Between 1983 and 1985 they released four cassettes, one 7", and one 12" EP. In September 1985, the duo self-released their debut full length Susan Sleepwalking on Office Records. Equipped with Casio keyboards, drum machines, and jangly guitars, The Arms Of Someone New provided an American take on English folk, ambient, and industrial music. Over the album's ten tracks they paint pictures of stillness with sparse instrumentation and simple chord change. Psychedelic vocals add a dream-like veneer. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Housed in the original jacket featuring a blood red-tinted photograph with ghostly textures. Each copy includes a 2-sided 11" square insert with lyrics and press clippings from the band's archive.

BERANEK - SOUND OF DANGER
Espen Beranek Holm is a Norwegian musician and comedian, born 1960 and began his music career as a clarinetist. Inspired by early synthesizer bands Kraftwerk and The Residents, he began making experimental pop music. His debut album, "Sound of Danger", was released on Mind Expanding Records in November 1981. Taking heavy cues from David Bowie, all of the songs are sung in a nasally English accent, a rare occurrence in Norway at the time. The lyrics are melancholic, but tinged with paranoia. There are also upbeat tracks that evoke a prog or glam sensibility a la King Crimson, Alan Parsons, or Roxy Music. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Housed in the original jacket featuring red, black, and white lines that evoke a visualized Richter Scale designed by Monica Moltzau. Each copy includes a 2-sided 8x11" insert with lyrics and an autographed press photo of Beranek.

BEZIER - ENSCONCED
Dark Entries is proud to release the debut vinyl EP from Bézier entitled "Ensconced." Bézier is the moniker of all-live-analog electronic wizard Robert Yang from San Francisco. Enchanted by the Cybernetic Broadcasting System (CBS), Robert started DJing as Robot Hustle, joining the Honey Soundsystem collective in 2007. Robert writes hooks, patterns and melodies in an automatic, stream of consciousness fashion. Memory and nostalgia play a big part in constructing his music. "Ensconced" is the follow up to Bezier's debut cassette, released in 2012 on Break-Up records. The tile relates to themes of comfort and safety as well as complacency and entrapment. Influences range from the futuristic landscape of Syd Mead to the melodic energy of Patrick Cowley and the subdued, hidden motifs of My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless." Bézier blends elements of Hi-NRG and dark dance to drive the mysterious underwater instrumentals of "Ensconced." Bezier's studio set up includes a variety of vintage Roland and Korg synthesizers as well as the Italo Disco favorite LinnDrum. These six tracks were written, produced and mixed by Bézier at his home studio in San Francisco between 2009 and 2013. All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in jacket featuring a Bézier line drawing illustration by our in-house designer Eloise Leigh. Each LP includes indivual postcards with drawings and liner notes. Let Bézier take you on an enchanted dance journey while heavily under the influence of DIY electronics.

'The Shape Of Things To Come' is a 70 minute journey spread across two pieces of vinyl. It's comprised of seven tracks recorded directly to tape with no overdubs, made at Converse's home studio. At the time of recording, Bill was sending this material to Josh Vance (Josua Dorje Ngodup) for feedback. Most of the time Josh would respond in the form of artwork, and then Bill would create another track inspired by this feedback chain. Converse has dedicated this series of tracks to him. The songs on this album reveal a sublime influence from Detroit techno, early Chicago house, and Acid. For this album Converse slightly bumped up the tempos geared for dancefloor energy. Built around vintage synthesizer lines and gritty drum machine percussion, the tracks evoke "how things have changed and how they have come to be." All songs were mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is housed in a gatefold jacket with a painted photograph portrait by Dietmar Busse and layout design by Eloise Leigh. The gatefold conceals an otherworldly collage made by Josua Dorje Ngodup. Each copy includes a postcard featuring artwork from Bill's sister with notes.

COWLEY, PATRICK & JORGE SOCARRAS - CATHOLIC
Dark Entries and Honey Soundsystem have teamed up to release "Catholic", the lost opus of disco pioneer Patrick Cowley and Indoor Life vocalist Jorge Socarras. Perhaps one of the most revolutionary and influential people in the canon of disco music, Cowley created his own brand of Hi-NRG dance music, "The San Francisco Sound." Born in Buffalo, NY on October 19, 1950, Patrick moved to San Francisco at the age of 21. He studied at the City College of San Francisco and met Jorge Socarras in 1973 through mutual friends. The duo's first collaboration was a ten-minute trance-inducing epic that Cowley composed for a performance piece by Socarras in 1975. Patrick, who played drums, guitar and keyboards, provided the perfect match for Jorge's vocal talents. Between 1975 and 1977 they recorded an album's worth of material before Socarras moved to London and Cowley started playing synthesizers for Sylvester. Upon Jorge's return to San Francisco in 1979, the duo would re-record some of the "Catholic" songs with Patrick's newly acquired equipment. Meanwhile, Socarras met the musicians with whom he would form Indoor Life, and in 1980 Patrick co-produced their first album. The "Catholic" album was offered to San Francisco's Megatone Records who passed on it. Fast forward to 2007 when Honey Soundsystem was contacted by John Hedges, former co-owner of Megatone Records. Hedges' was moving to Palm Springs and invited the crew over to his basement to collect over 2,000 records from his collection. Among the archives were three moldy boxes of quarter inch reel to reel tapes featuring unreleased music by Cowley, including the "Catholic" material. The reel was passed on to Stefan Goldmann of Macro Recordings in Berlin who was able to track down Jorge Socarras and clear the rights. "Catholic" was finally released on CD in 2009. "Catholic" is a genre-bending concept album that ranges from minimalistic proto-techno to synth-driven post-punk, pre-dating the dance punk acts LCD Soundsystem and The Rapture by almost 30 years. It shows a much broader range than any Cowley or Socarras material available and gives a totally new perspective to one of the most inspiring eras in music history. Influenced by Tomita, Wendy Carlos, the Velvet Underground, and Roxy Music, "Catholic" prefigures acts like Talking Heads, Units, The Human League or Chris & Cosey. Patrick forges a unique electronic sound from his collection of synthesizers, modified guitars, and self-constructed equipment while Jorge's vocals go from hypnotic to camp, singing about gay love juju and tackling classics by Donovan and Stoller & Leiber. Featuring over 80 minutes of music never before released on vinyl, this compilation contains two bonus tracks not featured on the CD release. The tapes were meticulously restored by mastering guru Rashad Becker at D+M in Berlin, then remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy dual pocket gatefold featuring the intended album cover from the original "Catholic" photo shoot in 1979, and the original hand-lettering by Arch Connelly aka A. Style intended for the first 45rpm single. Inside the gatefold sleeve contains lyrics and an essay from Jorge Socarras. For the 32nd anniversary of Patrick's death, Dark Entries and Honey Soundsystem present a glimpse into the minds of these two geniuses. These recordings shine a new light on the experimental side of a disco legend who was taken too soon. All proceeds from "Catholic" will be donated to the San Francisco AIDS Housing Alliance.

DANSE SOCIETY - DEMOS VOL.1
UK goth underground Danse Society released a handful of 7"'s between 1980-1982, plus their debut album "Seduction" on their own indie label Society Records. Their single "Somewhere" topped the Independent Charts, and eventually they were signed to major Arista Records. The band spent their major label advance on new equipment and recorded an album's worth of demos in one day at Greenhouse Studios in 1983. This 11 track collection includes an early version of the single "Wake Up" and other unreleased tracks from 1983. Remastered by Gorge Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP includes a fold-out, double sided newsprint poster with photos, lyrics, and liner notes by original drummer Paul Gilmartin. 28 years later, these demos capture a band at the height of their powerful, atmospheric sound. These recordings were in a raw, distinct style, in a realm far less campy than many of their Goth Rock peers, the band were unconcerned about pop charts or commercial appeal.

DARK DAY - EXTERMINATING ANGEL
Reissue of Robin Crutchfield's (formed the NO WAVE band DNA with Arto Lindsey and Ikue Mori in '77) minimal electronics brainchild first solo lp originally released in 1980. Crutchfield sings like a lost member of Kraftwerk with a dry detachment creating a starker and chillier atmosphere. Lyrics were derived from cut-up methods similar to those hused by surrealists, fluxus artists, (William Burroughs/Bryon Gysin). All tracks were recorded in NYC in 1979 and produced by Charles Ball. Remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP includes a two-sided fold out poster with lyrics, photos and lyrical explanations by Robin Crutchfield.

DARK DAY - HANDS IN THE DARK
Dark Entries continues to work in reverse chronological order to re-issue Dark Day's debut single "Hands In the Dark." Dark Day is the minimal electronics brainchild of Robin Crutchfield following his separation with no wave band DNA. For the first incarnation of Dark Day, Robin recruited Nina Canal from The Gynecologists and later UT on guitar and Nancy Arlen from Mars on drums. They recorded two songs for a 7" single, released in 1979 on Charles Ball's Lust/Unlust label. Off-kilter jerk-like guitar and energetic acrobatic tom-tom tumbling fuse with queasy lurching keyboards and "cold medicine" vocals. This single stepped away from no wave towards what was going on in the U.K. with The Normal, Robert Rental and Throbbing Gristle. After this single Dark Day would regroup with Robin on synthesizers and vocals, Phil Kline on guitar, Barry Friar on drums and guest Steven Brown of Tuxedomoon on saxophone to record the "Exterminating Angel" album. In 1981, the song "Trapped" was released as a 12? EP backed with "The Exterminations (1 Thru 6)." For these six instrumental tracks, Robin went back into the studio with the master tapes, flipped them over and played them backwards. Altering track assignments, speed and reverb effects, he rode the faders in and out, creating short "exterminations" of the original songs. The result is Crutchfield's favorite Dark Day release. All songs have been remastered from the original reel to reel tapes for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in jacket featuring a self-made cartoon of Robin Crutchfield to announce the release of the 7? in 1979. Each LP includes a double sided 11x17 fold-out poster with lyrics and photos and song notes by Robin and Nina Canal. Dark Day continue to inspire the current wave of stark, eerie, processional synthesizer music more than 30 years later.

Reissue of Robin Crutchfield's (formed the NO WAVE band DNA with Arto Lindsey and Ikue Mori in '77) minimal electronics brainchild second solo lp originally released in 1981 on Plexus Records. Following his first solo album, Crutchfield saw the direction of the project morph into an electronic keyboard duo where he was joined by Bill Sack. Lyrics were inspired by various sources including occult material by Colin wilson, and art by Leger, Bruegel, Man Ray, Duchamp and Jean Cocteau. Remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.

DIE FORM - DIE PUPPE
Die Form is a French post-industrial and electronic band formed in 1977. The name 'Die Form' means '(the) form/shape' in German, like the Bauhaus diary and is a play on the English homonym 'deformed' and on the French homonym 'difforme' (deformed). Die Form is the primary project of electronic musician and multimedia artist Philippe Fichot. He began by recording a number of experimental cassette releases in the late 1970s and formed the Bain Total label to release these early cassettes and various side projects including Krylon Hertz, Mental Code, Camera Obscura, Eva-Johanna Reichstag, Hurt and Fine Automatic. In 1982 Die Form released their debut vinyl album, "Die Puppe" in a limited edition of 1,000 copies. These are the first esoteric electronic experiments, often improvised, from what would become the sound of the project. Underlying themes of eroticism, death and other 'taboo' subjects are apparent in both the music and the album artwork, which Philippe also produces. The album was recorded with entirely analog equipment (Roland MC4 Micro-Composer, TR-808 Rhythm Composer, ARP 2600, Kawai 60F, Revox B77). Songs range from hypnotic, minimalistic proto-IDM to pure, daring experimental sound manipulation. Unable to fit into any genre, "Die Puppe" is in a class of music all its own. All songs have been remastered from the original master tapes for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is an exact replica of the original 1982 edition designed by Philippe Fichot, with a photograph of a porcelain doll holding a syringe. Each album includes two post cards with never before seen photos of Philippe with lyrics and liner notes by the band. Prepare to indulge your lustiest hedonistic fetishes.

DIE FORM - ZOO
Die Form is a French post-industrial and electronic band formed in 1977-1978. Die Form is the primary project of electronic musician and multimedia artist Philippe Fichot. He began by recording a number of experimental cassette releases in the late 1970s and formed the Bain Total label to release these early cassettes, as well as various side projects such as Krylon Hertz, Camera Obscura, Eva-Johanna Reichstag, Hurt and Fine Automatic. In 1982 Die Form released their debut vinyl album, "Die Puppe" in a limited edition of 1,000 copies. "Zoo" is a compilation of 10 tracks recorded during the "Die Puppe" sessions from 1980-82. These were the first esoteric electronic experiments, often improvised. Underlying themes of eroticism, death, and other 'taboo' subjects become apparent in both the music and the album artwork, which Philippe also produced. The album was recorded with entirely analog equipment, including a Roland MC4 Micro-Composer, TR-808 Rhythm Composer, ARP 2600, and Kawai 60F recorded to a Revox B77 reel to reel tape machine. Songs range from hypnotic, minimalistic proto-IDM to daring experimental sound manipulation. 4 of these songs were featured as a bonus 7" to accompany the 1989 vinyl reissue of "Die Puppe" but remixed for the project. The remaining 6 songs were also remixed and released on CD in 2001. For this reissue we asked the band to transfer the analog Revox tapes to release never before heard original versions of all 10 tracks. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The front cover was designed by Eloise Leigh and features a black and white photograph by Philipe. Each album includes a double sided post card with liner notes and a rare photo of the band.

EL DEUX & MARTIN KRAFT - NUR FUR MADCHEN
El Deux is the Swiss electro-pop trio of Gutze Gautschi (guitar, vocals), Steno Onetz (bass), Martin Kraft (vocals, drum machine). Formed circa 1981 in Aarau by Gutze and Steno who played together in punk/New Wave band Fresh Color aka Frische Farbe featuring a pre-Yello Dieter Meier. Gutze's minimal electronic compositions did not fit the concept of Fresh Color, so they formed a new project with their live mixer, Martin Kraft, on vocals. The group was quite successful with many concerts, mainly in southern Germany and various TV appearances in Germany and abroad. Between April/September 1982 they recorded and mixed their debut album 'Nur Für Mädchen' in 15 days at Powerplay Studios, Zurich.

FLESH WORLD - INTO THE SHROUD
Flesh World is a dream punk group formed in the summer of 2012 in San Francisco. The quartet includes Scott Moore (Guitar, Synths) Jess Scott (Vocals, Guitar) Andrew Luttrell (Bass, Backing Vocals) Sam Lefebvre (Drums). Jess and Scott met while loitering around the Panhandle district, listening to records, gossiping, and playing live shows around town with their bands (Scott plays in hardcore group Limp Wrist and Jess played in the indie pop band Brilliant Colors). The pair immediately bonded over a shared love of The Velvets and The Mary Chain. They began writing songs in Scott's lofted bedroom in the City and took their name from a XXX magazine. The fully formed band released their first self-titled 6-song EP in December 2013 for London punk imprint La Vida Es Un Mus Discos. Two 7" singles were followed by their debut album 'The Wild Animals In My Life' released in 2015 on Iron Lung Records.

FROM NURSERY TO MISERY - PIXIES IN THE WOODS
From Nursery to Misery were three teenagers who grew up together on the same street in Basildon, Essex. Formed in 1987, the band was comprised of vocalists (and identical twins) Gina and Tina Fear, along with keyboard player and producer Lee Stevens. Lee invited the twins to over to record some music with him, suggesting they try singing over some instrumentals he had written and recorded on a newly purchased 4-track. They played a sum total of four gigs before splitting in 1991. 'Pixies In The Woods' is a 13-track career spanning compilation including three previously unreleased tracks. Tracks range from no-fi synth pop overlaid with ethereal, child-like vocals, to audio collages of animal noises and harrowing, double-speed monologues. Lee's expansive synth productions, informed by the Blade Runner soundtrack, early electro records, and 4AD acts like Dead Can Dance, provided a rich, spacious platform for Gina and Tina's sung-spoken introspective lyrics. Their songs are disarmingly direct and unfiltered, the product of three self-confessed misfits exploring difficult, often intensely personal issues. As the band says, they just wanted to make pop music and FNTM is what came out. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The record is housed in a custom made jacket designed by Eloise Leigh, featuring a lavender tinted photograph of Gina and Tina. Each copy includes a glossy 8x11" photo of the twins as well as a 2-sided 18 x 24" fold-out poster with lyrics, artwork, and press clippings from the band's archive. Also included is an essay by filmmaker Matthew Reed, who made a short film on FNTM in 2015.

HACKER, THE - LE THEATRE DES OPERATIONS
Dark Entries are honored to announce the latest album from Michel Amato aka The Hacker, e Théâtre des Opérations'. Michel began making music in 1989 a the age of 17 in Grenoble, France. He grew up listening to New Wave bands like Duran Duran, The Cure and Depeche Mode as well as the darker side of electro Kraftwerk, Cabaret Voltaire and D.A.F. In 1990s he released a series of 12" singles and an album of cold, calculating and relentless techno. In 1997 he teamed up with Caroline Herve aka Miss Kittin and to release landmark singles and albums that effortlessly channeled the carefree spirit of 80s electro pop (of which we released an EP of lost demos back in 2015). Michel's new live project sees the enigmatic artist go back to his roots, performing a 100% analogue set directly inspired by his first true loves of New Wave and dark, powerful techno.

HAUFF, HELENA - A TAPE
We are honored to present 'A Tape', a double LP of early work by Helena Hauff, a DJ and record producer based in Hamburg, Germany. 'A Tape' is a compilation of Helena's earliest recordings from 2011 and 2014, originally released on limited cassette by Handmade Birds in 2015. Clocking in at over 50 minutes, this collection spans Hauff's musical universe, from jacking acid-techno to krautish zone-outs and scuzzy feedback interludes. It's tempting to consider it Helena's debut album, but she views these tracks as mostly forgotten sketches left on the cutting room floor. It a gripping collection of deep, sinister analog synth sequences, industrial dissonance, and heavy percussion. Her equipment set up was a Roland Alpha Juno 2, Juno 60, TB-303, TR-707 and TR-808. Both of the discs end with Hauff stepping outside of the intentionally stiff, robotic rhythms, instead showing her skill at crafting less conventional electronic sounds. All songs have been mastered by James Plotkin with vinyl EQ and lacquer cut by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The record is housed in a custom made jacket designed by Eloise Leigh, featuring a checkered graphic and black lines, highlighted by yellow and green for maximum visual tension. Each copy includes a double-sided postcard with notes.

INFORMATICS - DANCE TO A DANGEROUS BEAT
Informatics were a post-punk band from Melbourne, Australia who formed in 1981. Between 1981 and 1985, Informatics recorded numerous tracks, mainly in a garage, using a four-track tape machine and any electronic gear they could get their hands on. The band held a fascination for contemporary visual art and moving images and videos would accompany their live performances. The production elements in the videos reflected Informatics' philosophy on sound composition: the footage was entirely pirated from television ads, manipulated and then collaged to create new narratives that reinforced the music."Dance to a Dangerous Beat" collects all 4 songs from the first EP, 2 songs from compilation appearances as well as 6 unreleased tracks on vinyl for the first time. Their early songs have a brittle, cold, disconnected feel made by a Roland SH-101, Korg MS-20 and a lot of processed guitar. Their later songs utilized more synth melodies and were closer to their country mates Severed Heads. Mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studio in Berkeley. Each lp includes a double-sized 11x11 insert with photographs and liner notes by the band.

LASSIGUE BENDTHAUS - MATTER (LP+7")
Lassigue Bendthaus is the electro-industrial project of Uwe Schmidt aka AtomT or Señor Coconut from Germany. Uwe Schmidt began making music in the early 1980s, first playing drums, then switching to programming a drum computer after he had heard a Linn Drum on the radio. In 1986 he co-founded the cassette label N.G. Medien, on which his first musical work under the name Lassigue Bendthaus, "The Engineer's Love", was released. Soon after, he started to work on what would become his first official record release, the album "Matter". The recordings and production began in 1986 and took almost 4 years, until the album finally came out in 1991 on the German Parade Amoureuse label. Musically somewhere between late "Industrial" and "Electronic Body Music", yet already anticipating "Acid" and "Techno", this production managed to cause quite a stir, due to its advanced production techniques. Songs pay strong homage to Kraftwerk, approaching the early industrial dance scene with a softer sequential approach than most of his contemporaries. "Matter" is a hermetic reflection about the relationship between perception, nature, science, technology and labor. This reissue comprises the entire 1991 "Matter" LP, as well a bonus 7? record containing 2 tracks never before released on vinyl. All songs on "Matter" were recorded and mixed by Tobias Freund (Pink Elln). All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl is housed in a jacket featuring the photographic traces of a high-energy photon hitting a proton. Each LP includes a 2-sided insert with original album reviews, press clippings, photos and liner notes by AtomT.

LE TRAVO - ERRING AND ERRANT
Lè Travo is the brainchild of Patrick Bollen from Tienen, Belgium. As a teenager in the early 1980s Patrick would visit the infamous coldwave/gothic club "DeAtelier" in Leuven. There he would gather inspiration from Joy Division and other Factory releases, The Danse Society and Cocteau Twins. He gathered a some session musicians and a female backup vocalist. The set up was basic with live drums, TR-808 drum machine, Roland JX3P synthesizer, electric guitar and bass. Eventually Patrick bought a Greengate DE-3 sampler, using the brains of an Apple 2E with a keyboard bolted onto it. He crafted loops made from a deconstructed upright piano, hitting he strings directly with a drum stick. "Erring and Errant" was originally released in 1985. This reissue contains 3 bonus songs that were released in 1984 on a split LP and produced by Luc Van Acker (Revolting Cocks, Ministry, Shriekback). Most of the songs are follow the French Coldwave style, similar to Weimar Gesang, Opera Multi Steel or early Clan of Xymox. All songs have been transferred from the original reel to reels and carefully remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy jacket with original artwork as well as a fold-out poster with lyrics and photos. Lè Travo is derived from French word "les travaux", which means : the works, a fitting name for this compilation of lost music from the Belgian underground.

LEAETHER STRIP - TEENAGE DEMOS
Dark Entries is celebrating its 50th release with Leæther Strip "Teenage Demos". Leæther Strip is the solo-project of Danish electronic industrial artist Claus Larsen. Discovered by the German techno artist and producer Talla 2XLC, Leaether Strip quickly built a buzz as one of the most exciting emerging acts in Europe in the early 90's. "Teenage Demos" is a collection of Claus Larsen's earliest recordings. Nine demo songs recorded between 1982 and 1986 never before released on vinyl. Influenced by Fad Gadget, Depeche Mode and Jean Michel Jarre, Claus began creating synth-pop melodies at age 14. Though the melodies were catchy and upbeat they had a hidden melancholy because Claus knew that he was different than others. "Dreaming" was his first attempt to "come out" to himself as a queer kid. Lyrically the songs reflected what was going on in his head: youth, hope and dreams. Claus used a simple set up: Moog Prodigy, Yamaha drum machine, delay pedal and spring reverb. He would record the bass and drums on a double cassette recorder, without midi, sequencers or preset sounds. By 1985, Claus composed instrumental songs as the final three tracks on this album illustrate. Each song has been carefully remastered from the original masters for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy jacket with original photograph of a 15-year old Claus as well as an insert with lyrics, photos and an interview. "Teenage Demos" is a sneak peak into the world of early, emotionally intense foundations of Leæther Strip.

LIVES OF ANGELS - HOLE IN THE SKY
Lives of Angels was the brainchild of Gerald O'Connell from London, England. At the end of the 1970s, O'Connell had been working on material for Mystery Plane, a band that included his wife Catherine on keyboards and backing vocals. In 1980 the pair of them left to form Lives Of Angels and focus on O'Connell's own songs, which he felt were more "oblique, atmospheric and evocative" than the narrative style and social commentary of Mystery Plane. The result sounds both of its time, comfortably nestling under the gloomy clouds of British post-punk and goth, and oddly out of time; its homemade quality placing it outside of obvious chronological signifiers as the motorik riffs and spartan drum patterns loop over and over to infinity. 'Hole In The Sky' is an 11-track compilation of material from the Lives of Angels archives. Including two tracks from the original Elevator To Eden' cassette omitted from our vinyl reissue, two tracks from Color Disc compilations and 7 previously unreleased tracks. This compilation features the very earliest Lives of Angels recordings "Call Moscow" and "Somebody Else" as well as the final composition from 1986 "The Infinite Corridor" plus original mixes of "After Dark" and "Look Out Kid" different than the versions on the Color Supplement' compilation. 'Hole In The Sky' is an impressive example of early '80s home recording; a DIY interpretation of the elegance and ambition of the previous decade's krautrock. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. Each copy comes in custom made jacket designed by Eloise Leigh and includes an 11x11" double-sided insert with liner notes, lyrics and photos.

MAX & MARA - LESS NESS
Dark Entries is excited to introduce the debut album "Less Ness" from contemporary Bay Area duo, Max and Mara. Their collaboration began in 2012. Max is based in Oakland and has been a part of various projects most notably Brotman and Short and his current solo work as Business Etiquette. Mara is based in San Francisco and is known for her solo work as Group Rhoda. On "Less Ness" they worked with a hardware set up: 808 and Elektron drum machine, Moog, MAM, and Sequential Circuits synth with splashes of Mono/Poly and collage elements, vocoder lines and dubbed out vocals. Lyrically the songs revolve around topics such as escapism, looking though cultural windows, and character role development. Some songs are a bit more surrealist in content with elements of hard realism and critical commentary. All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is housed in a jacket featuring a painting by Shana Why. Prepare to turn your gaze to the things in front of you and away from screen generated culture and its mimicry of social participation

MORAL - AND LIFE IS
Moral was the trio of Marco Andreis (Guitars, Bass), Hanne Winterberg (Vocals) and Ingolf Brown (Synthesizers, Rhythm Box, Sequencer) from Aarhus, Denmark formed in 1981. They released their debut mini-album "Dance of the Dolls" on cassette in 1981 and the album "Whispering Sons" on cassette in 1982. The group played very few concerts, but supported both Monochrome Set and Nico. In May 1983, they contributed three songs to the Irmgardz Records sampler "Somewhere Outside", a compilation featuring groups from outside of Copenhagen. During the summer of 1983, Moral recorded and produced their debut LP, "And Life Is." at Ingolf Browns home studio. It was the first release on Ingolfs label ARP Gramophone in August 1984. Influenced by early 4AD Records, Joy Division, Brian Eno and Wire, the band crafted their own brand of Nordic melancholic Post Punk. The album develops the bands signature sound of airy, glacial synthesizers with crepuscular guitar and serpentine melodies. The main synthesizers used are the primitive Roland TR-606 Drumatix, the percussion side-kick to the TB-303, plus the BOSS DR-55 Dr. Rhythm drum machine. Hannes hauntingly beautiful vocals walk the line between germanic chill of Nico and Alison Statton of Young Marble Giants. Lyrical themes of cold nights and blossoming relationships paint a detailed picture of youthful life in Scandinavia. This deluxe edition contains three bonus tracks that originally appeared on the "Somewhere Outside" compilation. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is an exact replica of the original 1984 edition featuring a photo by Per Wiklund of a wave crashing into the sea. Each copy includes a double sided 11"x11" insert containing lyrics for each song and photos of the band. This reissue is dedicated to Ingolf Brown who passed away in 2012

NAGAMATZU - IGNITING THE CORPSE
1991; a heady year. The Zero issue of Music From The Empty Quarter hit doormats as a resurgence of interest in the grey areas of Electronics, Industrial and general weirdness gained some momentum AND Nagamatzu released what was to be their swansong, the seven-track Igniting The Corpse cassette. Though sadly, soon after the creative pairing of Stephen Jarvis and Andrew Lagowski parted ways, with the latter half since establishing himself as a staple for all that is quality in the field of electronica and stellar soundwork. Rewind further though. To 1981. Our two like-minds decided it was high-time to feed a love of post punk industrial noise into a cross-breeding of machines, organics in the form of guitar and bass and mould responses into driven, ever-revolving soundtracks of their own. A forging partnership was born and for ten years they garnered a following. Sadly never reaching that breakthrough' moment, the reason purely being that not enough people bothered to listen. Thankfully we all get another opportunity to hear this important set of UK electronic compositions through this hunky slab of red vinyl on the band's own resurrected Motorcade imprint. First to note is the crystalline production and through the aid of a top-notch pressing they've upped the bass for a positive tremor-pleasure-ride. From the opening alaria' the listener is on a journey brimming with rhythmic forward motion, richly dark precision synthetics aided-and-abetted by effected voice phrases and cut-ups. Trace histories of Cabaret Voltaire and Clock DVA could be examined but in reality Nagamatzu's re-arranged underworld vision is a sound apart. Bizarrely for me, until now I hadn't noticed a partial resemblance to Solar Enemy-era Portion Control on the tracks uietus' and egion'; both intensely menacing, yet subtle and precise there are no billowing exploits of noise just a constant threat of mass absorption. Corabella' and train' contain dense, overwhelming percussion-work and cavernous textured tones but it's the final Threshold' which is one hell of an epitaph. Sparse bursts of sound and blunt-stabbing synths tear their way through a disturbing hellish void. And, after.., Nagamatzu were no more. Translucent red vinyl LP re-issue of the album first released on cassette only in 1991. Each copy includes a limited edition, numbered screen print by Vii Sins. All vinyl copies include free digital download code.

NAGAMATZU - SACRED ISLANDS OF THE MAD
This UK band began in 1982 after messing around with old tape machines and drum boxes, making numerous contributions to the electronic scene. Their name comes from a character in JG Ballard's "Atrocity Exhibition" and their music reflects his influence. Their songs sample everything from Gregorian Chants, to the Challenger shuttle disaster. The band eerily sound like early Cabaret Voltaire, clock DVA, or early New Order. This collection of eleven tracks was recorded between 1984 and 1986. All songs have been remastered especially for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy studios on Berkeley from the original cassette masters. Each LP is housed in a sleek black jacket with spot gloss lettering and includes a newsprint zine full os fliers, gig memorabalia, ads and photos.

NO MORE - A ROSE IS A ROSE (LP + 7")
No More are a band from Kiel, Germany, founded in the summer of 1979. Their music is rooted in early Post Punk / No Wave. No More began as a quartet with Andy A. Schwarz (vocals, guitar, bass), Tina Sanudakura (synthesizers), Christian Darc (drums, vocals) and Thomas Welz (bass, vocals). They self-ªreleased their debut 7" four song EP "Too Late" in 1980. The EP was reviewed in the German 'Sounds' magazine as "strangely, archaic music, a brute sound that seems to be recorded with a purposely damaged 4-track".

PARADE GROUND - GOLDEN YEARS
Parade Ground are a 1981 group comprising Jean-Marc and Pierre Pauly, brothers originally from Brussels, Belgium. The band take cues from Post-Punk, Coldwave, Dada and Surrealism. Their music channels suffering, tension and rage through pulsating synthesizers, skeletal guitar and severe bass. Jean-Marc's expressive vocals are the most melodic and emotional instrument on these recordings. Golden Years is an 11 song, career retrospective spanning 1982-1988. 7" and 12"s tracks all combined here on one LP. Musically a hybrid of Joy Division and Fad Gadget. Each LP includes a 6-page press kit with lyrics, discography, photos and liner notes by Daniel B of Front 242.

PERON, CARLOS - DIRTY SONGS EP
Dark Entries is honored to release a 4-track EP by Swiss musician Carlos Perón, founding member of Yello. Carlos was born in 1952 in Zurich and began collecting music at a young age.

In 1979 Perón founded the trio Yello with musician Boris Blank and vocalist Dieter Meier. Yello released their first album in 1980 and the following year Carlos released his first solo album mpersonator'. In 1983 Carlos left Yello in order to pursue a solo career and released the soundtrack to "Die Schwarze Spinne" and 1984 his second solo album "Nothing Is True; Everything Is Permitted".

PESTEG DRED - YEARS OF STRUGGLE AGAINST THE LIES
Years of Struggle was written, recorded and produced by a trio of 18 year old Danish kids during December 1981. The band combines dark, rumbling basslines with austere guitar shrieks and the occasional cello/violin/autoharp to create the perfect tension of soft/loud synthesized post-punk. Singer Martin Hall evokes ranges from cold teutonic monotone to shrill cacophony at times reminiscent of Nico and XMAL Deutschland & Malaria! This landmark album could have fit perfectly on the 4AD or Factory Records roster alongside Bauhaus, A Certain Ratio or Stockholm Monsters. All tracks remastered, and comes in a silk screened, hand-numbered cover. First time ever on vinyl.

PLATONOS, LENA - GALLOP
(Lena Platonos) is a Greek musician, pianist and music composer. One of the pioneers in the Greek electronic music scene of the 1980s, she remains active until today. Lena was born on the island of Crete and grew up in Athens. She began learning how to play the piano at the age of two and became a professional pianist before turning eighteen. Soon afterwards, she received a scholarship and studied in Vienna and Berlin where she was exposed to jazz, rock and Middle Eastern music. She permanently returned to Greece in the late 70s and began working with the Hellenic Broadcasting Corporation. Her debut album was released in 1981 and marked a innovative change in Greek music by featuring the strong use of synthesizers, which Platonos had begun to experiment with. (Gallop) was Lena Platonos' second record that she solely composed, produced and sang. The record was released in 1985 and had a profound effect on the contemporary Greek music scene. Gallop was composed in the wake of a painful separation and took several months to complete. Lena says, "Its a study in the mythology of urban population of the contemporary metropolis and also a gaze into the future life of it." The album is made exclusively of analog synthesizers and heavily features the iconic Roland TR-808 drum machine. Lenas narrates each song, reciting her own surreal Greek poetry with unique skill. Lyrics deal with heartbreak, dreams, desires and the foresight of societys obsession with computers in our daily lives. Gallop is an album ahead of its time and Lena has an exceptional talent for conceiving issues that were to conquer Greek TV screens and newspapers many years later. All songs have been remastered from the original master tapes for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is an exact replica of the 1985 edition featuring Lenas original collage. Each copy includes a two-sided lavender 11"x11" insert with lyrics, photos and liner notes by Lena, filmmaker Antonis Boskoitis and fellow Greek musician Vassilikos. Prepare to become fully enveloped and entranced by this haunting masterpiece.

PLATONOS, LENA - SUN MASKS
Lena Platonos is a Greek musician, pianist and music composer. One of the pioneers of Greek electronic music, she remains active today. Originally released in 1984, Sun Masks featured experiments with different sounds and a new batch of electronic equipment, such as the legendary Roland TR 808 drum machine. Lena narrates each song in deadpan fashion, skillfully reciting her surreal Greek poetry. Her lyrics deal with the futility of love, the gap of human relationships, consumerist alienation in the bourgeois lifestyle of the 1980s. All songs have been remastered from the original master tapes for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The jacket is an exact replica of the 1984 edition, featuring a photograph of Lena wearing sunglasses or "sun masks". Each copy includes a two-sided 11"x11" insert with lyrics in both Greek with English, and liner notes by Lena.

PSYCHE - RE-MEMBERING DWAYNE
At the end of 1981, brothers Darrin and Stephen Huss and schoolmate Dwayne Goettel performed for the first time as Psyche in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Their live show was a combination of horror and electronics that was completely unprecedented in Western Canada. Although Goettel and the Huss brothers parted ways before Psyche was to release any material, the masters containing Dwayne Goettel's performances were preserved in the band's vaults. Now, 19 years after Goettel's untimely passing in 1995, Dark Entries records presents "Re-Membering Dwayne", the original Psyche-Dwayne Goettel sessions. All tracks were recorded and mixed on 4-track during a single day in March of 1983. Psyche's early material is visceral and abrasive, a far cry from the sleek, dark synthpop they'd later become known for. Like the body horror films of fellow Canadian David Cronenberg, Psyche disquietingly conflate the organic and the mechanical, calling into question the limits of the human form. Dwayne, who would join Skinny Puppy a few years later, contributes heavily to this more aggressive, disturbing sound. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP includes a 12-page booklet with excerpts from Darrin Huss' diary, unpublished photos of Psyche with Dwayne, and an essay by Darrin reflecting on Psyche's past and the Goettel legacy as well as lyrics. This collection is a glimpse at the early Canadian industrial scene and the roots of Skinny Puppy. Go take a walk in the past with an ear for the future; you just might learn something.

REDREDRED - PATTERN COMPLETION
Pattern Completion is the debut album from San Francisco-based contemporary artist Michael Wood as REDREDRED. Previously recording as one half of Primary Colors, Wood started his REDREDRED project in 2012. Taking inspiration from Front 242, Einsturzende Neubauten, Throbbing Gristle, Nietzsche and Sartre, Wood utilizes a simple setup of vintage analog synthesizers and drum machines, and records them on reel-to-reel. Pattern Completion was originally planned as a 4 song cassette EP that was only released digitally. This new full length features those four tracks, remixed and remastered on the A Side, and four unreleased tracks on the B side. The material on Pattern Completion is strongly influenced by Wood's former live/work studio space in the Bayview District of San Francisco, an area surrounded by recycling facilities and water treatment plants. The songs reflect this industrial atmosphere, stacking treated rhythm box patterns, quivering synthesizers, and mechanical vocals. Pattern Completion develops the strain of futuristic, mutant industrial pioneered by San Francisco groups like Tuxedomoon and Factrix, with REDREDRED adding his own brand of damaged angular rhythms.

ROSTAMI, ARIA & DANIEL BLOMQUIST - DISTANT COMPANION
Aria Rostami and Daniel Blomquist are from San Francisco, CA, though Rostami has recently moved to Brooklyn, NY. Rostami and Blomquist's work occurs in two stages: the gathering/preparation of source material and the live performance. Rostami and Blomquist's source material primarily focuses on the exchange of information, repetition and decay, and surrendering aspects of creative control. The source material is either sampled and altered by Blomquist or composed and recorded by Rostami. Sometimes this material is repeatedly passed back and forth to be altered, others, it's barely touched. All songs have been mastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. Cover artwork features a collage by London-based artist Anthony Gerace, and each copy includes a postcard featuring a photo of the duo.

RUBELLA BALLET - BALLET BAG
Rubella Ballet are a gothic anarcho-punk band formed in 1979 by former Fatal Microbes Pete Fender (guitar) and Gem Stone (bass) with vocalist Zillah Minx, and Flux of Pink Indians drummer Sid Ation. Sid and Zillah were living with the Poison Girls at Burghley House in Epping. Pete and Gem were the son and daughter of Poison Girls singer Vi Subversa. The band used Poison Girls equipment to jam and write songs, and their first performance was when they jumped up on the stage at a Crass concert. Zillah created and designed ultraviolet hand painted day-glo clothes for the band and dyed their hair multicolored to differentiate themselves from the death rock bands who tended to wear black, army-surplus style clothing. For their psychedelic stage show they used nothing more than black lights, strobes, and a bit of smoke to illuminate the band. In 1980 Rubella Ballet released their first batch of material on a cassette album titled "Ballet Bag" for Poison Girls' XNTRIX Records. The band recorded two John Peel sessions for BBC Radio in 1982 and 1983, which are of much higher fidelity than the home-produced cassette. 6 of those songs are included here as bonus tracks, complete with John Peel introductions from the original broadcast. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Housed in neon pink and black checkered jacket emulating the polyvinyl bag that covered the original cassette. Each copy includes a replica of the original 12-page zine with lyrics and drawings by the band. Also included are 2 black and white postcard featuring never before seen photos of the band from 1981.

SEVERED HEADS - CLIFFORD DARLING, PLEASE DON'T LIVE IN THE PA
Severed Heads are one of the longest surviving bands to emerge from the Australian post-punk independent music scene. They began in Sydney in 1979, incorporating elements of 'industrial' noise-generation, tape cutting & looping and electronic sound synthesis. As the project developed song-structures and vocals were employed in a more-or-less recognizable mutant electro pop style. After many line-up changes featuring Garry Bradbury and psychedelic guitarist Simon Knuckey, Severed Heads was the vehicle for composer Tom Ellard. All songs are remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Housed in a jacket featuring brightly colored, distorted, VHS graphics output by Stephen Jones' video synthesizer created by Tom Ellard video piece "Kato Gets The Girl" in 1985, designed by Eloise Leigh. Each copy includes a fold-out poster with a color video still photo on one side and liner notes and credits on the other. 30 years later Severed Heads' perverse creativity is still paving the way for powerful imaginative challenging music far and wide.

SEVERED HEADS - COME VISIT THE BIG BIGOT
Dark Entries is proud to present the deluxe 2xLP reissue of ome Visit The Big Bigot' by Severed Heads, one of the longest surviving bands to emerge from the Australian post-punk independent music scene. They began in Sydney in 1979, incorporating elements of 'Industrial' noise-generation, tape cutting & looping and electronic sound synthesis. As the project developed song-structures and vocals were employed in a more-or-less recognizable mutant electro pop style. 'Come Visit The Big Bigot' was Severed Heads' first record to be released commercially simultaneously in Australia, North America and Europe in 1986. It was a prime period for this 'industrial dance music' and Bigot was a respected album that did well from the tour they did with Skinny Puppy that same year. Quite a few people still define the band by this period. Like the original Australian version of the album, we've included a bonus disc featuring three extended remixes by Sydney DJ Robert Racic (who produced the edited 7" version of "Petrol" we reissued in 2015), plus three B-sides from the 'Twenty Deadly Diseases' 12" and two additional tracks from the same recording sessions. All songs have been remastered by Tom Ellard, who worked very slowly and methodically with much better equipment over two years, letting each track have its own breath. Final vinyl EQ and lacquer cutting by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Housed in a gatefold jacket featuring brightly colored, distorted, VHS graphics output by Stephen Jones' video synthesizer, from the first vinyl edition on Ink Records with layout by Eloise Leigh. Inside the gatefold are liner notes, lyrics and song meanings by Tom Ellard plus an 3-page booklet with photos, interviews and press clippings from the period.

SIC - THOUGHT NOISES
Belgian new-wave pioneers Sic were a post-punk band from the industrial city of Charleroi in Belgium. They formed in 1977, and featured Alain Neffe who had been in Krautrock band Kosmose in the mid 70's. In 1978 he left to start his own label and the remaining trio released their debut "Voltage Control" in 1979. A heavy reliance on rhythm, with Mick Karn-like basslines and female vocals puts the band into the Delta 5, Kleenex, Magazine, Raincoats, Fall-esque bracket. This full length "Thought Noises" compiles all three Sic 7" singles released from 1979-1981 plus 6 unreleased demos from a 1981 recording session. Each LP includes a colorful lyric sheet insert.

Stress is the duo of Alan Rider (Adventures in Reality fanzine editor) and Phil Clarke from West Midlands, England formed in 1981.

Their first two releases (Help Comes too Late 1982, Restraint in 1984) were cassettes on Alan's own indie "Adventures in Reality" label. In 1985, they released "The Big Wheel" album and took the number #1 electronic spot in the NME chart. Soon after the band split up in late 1985. This lp is an 11-song best of compilation featuring tracks from the first two cassette albums plus songs that appeared on compilations. Remastered at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley by George Horn.

SUMERIAN FLEET - PENDULUM
Sumerian Fleet is a trio formed by Dutch producers Alden Tyrell and Mr Pauli, joined by Zarkoff after their 2010 debut EP. Their second EP came out in 2012 followed by their debut album 'Just Pressure' on Dark Entries in 2014. Sumerian Fleet have returned to release their sophomore LP 'Pendulum' of all new material as well as a remixed version of "This Game Has No Name" from Zarkoff's other band, FFFC. 'Pendulum' contains 80's Dark Wave/EBM inspired tracks with an industrial tinge. The band cites inspiration from musical acts Fad Gadget, Front 242, Bauhaus and Sisters of Mercy. Literary references come from Poe's 'The Pit and the Pendulum', Pelevin's 'Generation P' and 'Life of Bugs', as well as classic Cyberpunk like Gibson's 'Sprawl' trilogy. Sumerian Fleet deliver 8 songs of vintage dark electro with a Gothic tinge and a touch of bass guitar. The album's been put together in a way that the listener can connect the dots, create a narrative, and become immersed in this attitude that the band's trying to convey, such as Vigny's idea of accepting despair: "A calm despair, without angry convulsions or reproaches directed at heaven, is the essence of wisdom." All songs were initially recorded at Mr Pauli's studio in Den Haag, with overdubs and additional recordings at Zarkoff's Sensorium Studio in Croatia, and then final mix downs at Alden Tyrell's studio in Rotterdam. The album has been mixed by Alden Tyrell and mastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is packaged in a copper foil stamped jacket designed by Eloise Leigh, with abstract squares in varied rhythmic repetitions to indicate motion, and included a double sided 10"x10" insert with lyrics and notes.

TRISOMIE 21 - CHAPTER IV
Trisomie 21 is a post punk band formed in 1981 by Phillipe Lomprez (vocals, drums) and Hervé Lomprez (guitar, electronics), two brothers from Abscon, in the North of France. They began composing songs at the age of 16 while studying at school. The brothers were influenced by Kraftwerk, The Residents, Yello, P.I.L as well as the films of George A. Romero. Their music consists of lush soundscapes that do not easily fit into any one category. Lyrics are sung in English because in the north of France the duo sought to contradict the trend at the time for everything to be sung in French. Musically their mood is melancholic and one can hear traces of Joy Division, Durutti Column and The Cure. Since 1983 they've recorded 15 albums and appeared on numerous compilations and remain active to this day. For their fourth album the Lomprez brothers spent September and October of 1985 recording nine new compositions. In January 1986 'Chapter IV, Le Je-ne-sais quoi et le presque-rien' was released by PIAS sub-label Scarface. The title came from a 1957 book by French philosopher and musicologist Vladimir Jankélévitch. The songs on the album, including the emblematic "The Last Song", were captivating, original and without concession. This record further opened the door to new opportunities, and the band's music spread further internationally. Sadly some of the songs had phase related problems and caused partial cancelation playing back monophonically, so the band remixed and re-recorded the songs and reissued them on CD only in 1987. We have added the nine remixes/re-recordings as bonus tracks here as a double LP. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. The LP is housed in a replica of the original jacket featuring artwork by Stephan Barbery from a Goya painting and includes a double sided insert with lyrics, notes and photos. "This record is dedicated to nobody"

It was received well by both the public and the media, especially outside of France. Originally featuring 5 compositions, we've added 4 demos never before released on vinyl.

Since 1983 they've recorded 15 albums and appeared on numerous compilations and remain active to this day. In Spring 1985 the group went back into the studio to record a new batch of songs. Trisomie 21's notoriety had increased following two concerts in Belgium and the Brussels recording label Play It Again Sam decided to sign them. In September 1985 the 5-song mini-LP 'Wait & Dance' was released by PIAS sub-label Scarface. It contained the band's first female guest vocals on two of the tracks. Sadly some of the songs had phase related problems and caused partial cancelation playing back monophonically, so the band remixed the songs and reissued them on CD only in 1987. We have added the 5 remixes as bonus tracks here presented for the first time ever on vinyl. All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.

VARIOUS - BAY AREA RETROGRADE VOL.2
Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Volume 2 is Dark Entries' second compilation of underground music from San Francisco (and the greater Bay Area) made between 1978-1983. Towards the end of the 70s, San Francisco's experimental music scene clashed with the aftermath of punk and gave birth to a vibrant underground. By the early to mid 80s the DIY music scene of the Bay Area was a hotbed for experimental and quirky new wave, post punk, and synthpop, quite similar to New York's No Wave scene and Berlin's Neue Deutsche Welle. This compilation connects the (transit) lines between these varied musical offerings and tells the secret story of eleven forgotten Bay Area bands. BART Volume 2 features slow, dystopian horror from pioneering industrial group Factrix; crushing, motorik noise from acid punks Chrome; amphetamine-driven synth punk from Red Asphalt; an early demo, never released on vinyl, from legendary post punk band Tuxedoomon; chilling atmospheric drone from Ki Di Me; leftfield new wave from Indoor Life featuring Patrick Cowley on synths; Los Microwaves more sinister side project Baby Buddha; gay drag icon Timmy Spence delivering an unknown camp classic, a pure instrumental electro-pop workout from Human Being Men; TR-808 fueled synth pop from Menlo Park duo Wonders of Science, and a poetic yet somber and haunting song from the mysterious Zru Vogue. All tracks have been carefully remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP is housed in a large 6-panel, 2-sided fold out poster designed by Eloise Leigh, featuring original photos and fliers from each band's personal archive plus a 36"x24" print of a photograph by Ruby Ray from 1978. BART is the acronym for Bay Area Rapid Transit, the main rail transportation system for the San Francisco Bay Area. This LP is by no means a definitive compilation but merely opens the tunnel to the underground of the Bay!

VARIOUS - HOUSEHOLD SHOCKS
Dark Entries is proud to present "Household Shocks", a 16-track compilation of UK DIY/Synth/New Wave/Post-Punk originally released in 1980. The album showcases 9 bands from the thriving post-punk scene in Scunthorpe and the North of England. Operating on a shoestring budget, co-producers Chris Leaning and Paul Singleton (both of One Gang Logic), released "Household Shocks" on Stark Products, a label they founded in 1979. At almost 50 minutes of music, the album took four weeks to produce at the Studio Playground in Lincoln. It was supported heavily by the late Radio 1 DJ John Peel.

VARIOUS - THE THING FROM THE CRYPT
Dark Entries drags another gem out into the light. This 16 track compilation of UK DIY/Synth/New Wave/Post Punk songs was originally released in 1981. The compilation showcased the UK town of Watford, England (20 minutes north of London). This comp features 2 tracks from 8 bands. Mex were the solo project of Paul Mex who went on to produce songs for WHAM and George Michael. Soft Drinks were a short-lived synth-punk trip who featured Jon Greville from Rudimentary Peni. Flying Beechcraft serve up a slice of wistful Flying Nun indie pop. Post punk Sad Lovers and Giants were a 5-piece band in this early incarnation. All songs were transferred from the master tapes by Paul Mex (MEX) and remastered for vinyl by George Hprn at Fantasy Studios in Berkely. The vinyl comes housed in a full color printed jacket using the original silk-screened artwork with 12 page booklet that is lovingly reproduced as it was in the original pressing. "The Thing From The Crypt" is more than a local compilation, it's the stuff John Peel shows were made of.

VILLA ABO - MAGNETIC MOVES
Villa Âbo in the alternative solo project of Swedish musician and producer Jan Svensson, who has been making electronic music for the better part of 30 years as the artist behind such aliases as Frak, Studio SS and Alvars Orkestra. Svensson also runs legendary Swedish dance and experimental music label Börft, the product of a mutual appreciation for Severed Heads and Terse Tapes. As Villa Âbo he released two records in 1997 on Börft and remained inactive for 17 years until the Dutch label Bio Rhythm coaxed him into revisiting the project and released a double 12" in 2014. Jan has since followed with a steady stream of 12" singles for Kontra-Musik, Noise In My Head and Radio Lundberg. "Magnetic Moves" is Villa Âbo's debut album, originally released in an limited edition of 65 hand-numbered cassettes by Funeral Fog in 2016. Clocking in at over 46 minutes, this first-ever vinyl edition spreads the 8 ragged techno tracks across four sides for maximum loudness.

VITA NOCTIS - AGAINST THE RULE
Complete discography of Vita Noctis, previously only available on self-released cassettes, compilations, and a solo mini 12". This is abrasive, primal music made by irritated individuals full of angst! Inspired by the post-punk movement, Belgian twin brothers Kris and Jos Kips started their own band in 1981. More "Arthouse" than "Goth" the band's sneering punk attitude was mixed with minimal electronics. The band has plenty in common with the Sheffield scene, namely Vice Versa, Cabaret Voltaire and early Human League. This compilation spans three years and 4 different recording sessions. Remastered by George Horn at Fantasy studios in Berkeley. Each LP comes in a deluxe gatefold jacket with cover art by the original designer Stephan Barbery and never before seen band photos and lyrics for each song.

WAHNFRIED, RICHARD - TIME ACTOR
Dark Entries is honored to re-issue one of the greatest and most overlooked albums of the 1970s. "Time Actor" was the result of a collaboration between legendary Crazy World & Kingdom Come visionary Arthur Brown and German synthesizer and ambient genius Klaus Schulze, recording under the pseudonym of his alter-ego Richard Wahnfried. "Richard" is the name of Klaus' son born in 1979, and the first name of the German composer Wagner. "Wahnfried" is the name of Richard Wagner's house, from the German "wähnen Frieden fand" (that his search and hopes will find peace). The album was a unique fusion of Brown's eccentric musical vision and Schulze's mastery of synthesis. The album was originally released in 1979 on the German Innovative Communication label.

Tom Ware is a Grammy nominated engineer, producer and musician from Omaha Nebraska. Throughout the 70s and 80s Tom was the drummer for many bands, including Norman & The Rockwells, Toy boat Toy boat Toy boat, and Hit N Run. Because of his love for electronics, mechanics, and machines of any kind, he was always the only one who truly knew how pa systems worked. Tom got an entry level job at a Rainbow Studios and would work at the recording studio during the day, play evening gigs till 2 in the morning, then go back to the studio and work on new ideas all night. During these teeth cutting sessions, Tom worked by himself, following his instincts and creating sounds he loved to listen to. His reckless abandon approach and thrill to learn was a high octane fuel that resulted in his first solo self-titled album. The album's 10 songs were recorded and mixed between August & December of 1983 and self-released in early 1984. The album would be re-released in 1985 by independent Krautrock/Kosmische Musik label Sky Records in Germany and re-titled 'The Fourth Circle'.

Also included is a killer cover of Serge Gainsbourg's song Contakt (originally sung by Brigitte Bardot in 1968). Reminiscent of the Mo-dettes, early OMD, their songs are short, concise and well structured, richly textured, with quick speed and hardly a pause. Songs lovingly remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley directly from the original master tapes. Contains an 8-page booklet full of unreleased photos, original artwork and lyrics.

COWLEY, PATRICK - SCHOOL DAZE
Dark Entries and Honey Soundsystem have teamed up to release the gay porn soundtrack work of San Francisco-based musician and producer, Patrick Cowley. Perhaps one of the most revolutionary and influential people in the cannon of disco music, Cowley created his own brand of Hi-NRG dance music coined "The San Francisco Sound." Born in Buffalo, NY on October 19, 1950, Patrick moved to San Francisco at the age of 21. He studied at the City College of San Francisco where he founded the Electronic Music Lab. During this time Patrick would create radio jingles and electronic pieces using the school's equipment, first a Putney, then an E-MU System and finally a Serge synthesizer. He would make experimental instrumental songs by blending various types of music and adapting them to the synthesizer. By the mid-70's, Patrick's synthesizer skills landed him a job composing and producing songs for disco superstar Sylvester such as "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)", "Dance Disco Heat" and "Stars." This helped Patrick obtain more work as a remixer and producer. Of particular note was his 18-minute long remix of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love" and production work with edgy New Wave band Indoor Life. By 1981 Patrick released a string of dance 12? singles, like "Menergy" and "Megatron Man", creating the soundtrack for a generation. Also that year, he founded Megatone Records and released his debut album. Around this time Patrick was hospitalized and diagnosed with a then-unknown illness: that would later be called AIDS. Prior to his passing on November 12, 1982, he recorded two more Hi-NRG hits, "Do You Wanna Funk" for Sylvester and "Right On Target" for Paul Parker. In 1981 Patrick was contacted by John Coletti, owner of famed gay porn company Fox Studio in Los Angeles. John had heard about Patrick's music from the legendary Sylvester and proposed he write music for his films. Patrick jumped on this offer and sent reels of his college compositions from the 70s to John in LA. Coletti then used a variable speed oscillator to adjust the pitch and speed of Patrick's songs in-sync with the film scene. "School Daze" is a collection of Cowley's instrumental songs recorded between 1973 and 1981 found in the Fox Studio vaults. Influenced by Tomita, Wendy Carlos and Giorgio Moroder, Patrick forged an electronic sound from his collection of synthesizers, modified guitars and self-constructed equipment. The listener enters a world of dark forbidden vices, introspective and reflective of Patrick's time spent in the bathhouses of San Francisco. The songs on "School Daze" range from sparse proto-techno to high octane funk to somber post-punk to musique concrete, revealing the depth of Cowley's unique talent. Featuring over 80 minutes of music, this compilation contains soundtrack music from two Fox Studio films, "Muscle Up" and "School Daze", never before released on vinyl. The tapes were restored and transferred using the same speed and pitch settings, then remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA. The vinyl comes housed in a glossy dual pocket gatefold featuring classic gay porn imagery from the Fox Studio vaults plus an essay from Indoor Life vocalist, Jorge Soccarras. For Patrick's 63rd birthday, Dark Entries and Honey Soundsystem present a glimpse into the instrumental world of a young genius. These recordings shine a new light on the experimental side of a disco legend who was taken too soon. All proceeds from "School Daze" will be donated to Project Open Hand and the AIDS Housing Alliance.

VARIOUS - BAY AREA RETROGRADE VOL. 1 & 2
We combined both Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Volume 1 and 2 on a single CD! BART is Dark Entries' compilation of underground music from San Francisco (and the greater Bay Area) made between 1978-1988. Towards the end of the 70s, San Francisco's experimental music scene clashed with the aftermath of punk and gave birth to a vibrant underground. By the early to mid 80s the DIY music scene of the Bay Area was a hotbed for experimental and quirky new wave, post punk, and synthpop, quite similar to New York's No Wave scene and Berlin's Neue Deutsche Welle. This compilation connects the (transit) lines between these varied musical offerings and tells the secret story of eleven forgotten Bay Area bands. BART Volume 1 features a Korg-heavy assault from Danville's utterly obscure Nominal State; two little-known left-field electronic dance gems from Batang Frisco and Quiet Room; Berkeley's answer to darkwave, Necropolis of Love; a synth-driven drama fest from drag performance troupe Wasp Women; quirky lo-fi gothic pop from one man band Distant Thunder; a gay Hi-NRG anthem delivered by Danny Boy and the Serious Party Gods; two lesser know gems from SF synth legends Voice Farm and Los Microwaves; and the futuristic pulsing synth-punk of Standard of Living and the Units. BART Volume 2 features slow, dystopian horror from pioneering industrial group Factrix; crushing, motorik noise from acid punks Chrome; amphetamine-driven synth punk from Red Asphalt; an early demo, never released on vinyl, from legendary post punk band Tuxedoomon; chilling atmospheric drone from Ki Di Me; leftfield new wave from Indoor Life featuring Patrick Cowley on synths; Los Microwaves more sinister side project Baby Buddha; gay drag icon Timmy Spence delivering an unknown camp classic, a pure instrumental electro-pop workout from Human Being Men; TR-808 fueled synth pop from Menlo Park duo Wonders of Science, and a poetic yet somber and haunting song from the mysterious Zru Vogue. All tracks have been carefully remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each CD contains a deluxe 12-page booklet designed by Eloise Leigh, featuring original photos and fliers from each band's personal archive. BART is the acronym for Bay Area Rapid Transit, the main rail transportation system for the San Francisco Bay Area. This CD is by no means a definitive compilation but merely opens the tunnel to the underground of the Bay!
