Van Kaye & Ignit

Here you go..


I remember getting this gem at "Artiificial Eye" a little booth in the Kensington Market in London. This little store was jam packed with awesomely curated cassette's, gear, and unique objects D' art!!..
Looking through my one HUMUNGOUS box of cassettes, I forgot I owned these, I will be posting some more of the "Artificial Eye" comps and groups in the near future..

Van Kaye & Ignit was a minimal wave trio formed in the early 1980's in Holland. Not your typical Klang-y, tinny, experimental/industrial/synth outfit..

Amanda Lear

Of course you knew..
But if you didn't.

Born in 1946 Hong-Kong.. from a French-English father and an Asian-Russian mother.
She was raised in South of France and moved to Paris to make a career in painting.
She became a top model and one of Salvador Dali's Muses. She posed as the "lady with the panther" on the famous cover of Roxy Music's "For Your Pleasure" album of 1973. Then David Bowie fell in love with her and she began her career as a disco singer. To create more hype about her they invented the story that she is a transexual!!
Since the early 80's she has presented TV broadcast in Italy, France and Germany.

Amanda's music is a hypnotic force to be reckoned with. That deep trance inducing voice, those swirly sleezy disco beats. How can you go wrong?

Here is the out of print Super 20 CD. All her kitch ass hits just for you!

It is NOT all about the GYRATE Lp..

Although GYRATE is a great (over rated) album, to me it all about CHOMP!

Chomp has all the manic experimental New Wave goodness that is done with such articulate perfection. Hey DFA.. why didn't you re-release this gem too?!!

Pylon hail from Athens, GA, like REM and B52's.

It's a classic.. Come get it!!
