Thomas Leer & Robert Rental

This awesome deep dark gem was recorded for Throbbing Gristle's Industrial Records label in 1979. I picked this up in the mid 80's at Bleeker Bob's during my hardcore TG/Psychic TV phase.. There was this tall blond skinhead who was in the group "God is my Co-pilot" who worked at BB's, swore up and down that I needed it for my collection. I wasn't a fan at the initial listening, but I recently really grew to enjoy the complexities of this coldnoise treasure!

Sounds like Soft Cell and Cabaret Voltaire recorded in the TG studios while tripping hard..

"Recording info. This album was recorded at home on 8 track equipment, provided for us by Industrial Records. It was produced in the two weeks dating 18th June to 2nd July. All blips and un seemly noises were generated by refridgerators & other domestic appliances & are intrinsic to the music. Special Thanks to Throbbing Gristle for their help & encouragement throughout."

I picked this nugget up about 7 years ago at Bleeker Bobs discount bin for $15.00.. It goes for up to $150.00 now.. WHY?
Lucky you know me!

Check out this slice of synth goodness from France. Perfect pure pop that's reminiscent of Kraftwerk/Disco/Vo-coder/Sleeze or a bastardization of...

Witches & Waveforms

Daphne, Louise, and Delia!

Three very unique chicks.

Starting with:

Daphne Oram - Electronic Sound Patterns 1-3 - 1962 - UK

Daphne worked for the BBC from 1943 firstly as a sound engineer, and then as the co-founder and Director of the "Radiophonic Workshop" from 1958 until she set up her own studio Folly Tower, so that she could make her own music, not just creating sounds to be used as special effects. She also created a musical machine that converted pictures into sound, known as 'Oramics' which she later continued working on, with the onset of the home computer revolution in 1981.

Dreamy short Sci-Fi bursts of electronic goodness.

Then there is..

Delia Derbyshire - Inventions For Radio - Dreams - 1964 - UK

The creator of the "Doctor Who" theme. This British bird laid out advanced electronic soundscapes from the 50's till her death in 2001. Shortly before Delia died, she wrote the following: "Working with people like Sonic Boom on pure electronic music has re-invigorated me.. Us too D!

Thanks to Moogoo who had these recordings on SlSk.

Then there is one of my favorite all time Lp's ever recorded..

Louise Huebner - Seduction Through Witchcraft Lp - 1969 - US

Louise Huebner the Official Witch of Los Angeles County is the only officially appointed Official Witch in the World. In fact she is the only officially appointed Official Witch in the entire Cosmos.

You will be caught up in her wacky orgy spells, and that voice! I never heard of her until I came across this Lp in a Miami thrift store in the early 90's. Rosemary's baby meets Lydia Lunch without the noise..
Watch out.. she makes witchcraft trippy and sleezy, approach with care...

Get them all here"



"Light the flame,
Bright the fire,
Red is the color of desire"!
