I was recently trolling my vinyl section that never seems to get any attention, when I came across this NRG catastophre. I was totally clueless to what this interesting chunk of vinyl was... Until I put it on.. Oh man!! What was I thinking? It brought back memories of sneaking in a flask of booze to the downstairs lounge at The Monster in NYC, and dancing like Al Pacino in the movie Crusing with dirty old men.. a couple of days after high school graduation.
That was the sound, and I was sucked in.. Deep down DIRTTY Hi-NRG.. I can smell the Amyl nitrite..

So without further ADU..

Johnny Warman

I forgot about this!


Signed to Elton John's Rocket Records in 1981, this ultra Glam, Synth, New Wave, Industrial-ish masterpiece will sure stun you up...
This Lp was built around material Warman first premiered live with his band Three Minutes. Check out "Screaming Jets," a masterful, electronics-driven slab of wartorn paranoia whose edginess was only amplified by the presence of Peter Gabriel on effectively keening backing vocals (very Shock the Monkey)..

Here is the CD release from 2002 with bonus songs.

Dave Ball

I cannot live without Dave Ball!!

As a student of Leeds Polytechnic Fine Arts University, renaissance man Ball experimented with electronic sounds and sleeze..

He met fellow student Marc Almond, who, taken with Ball's unique take on avant-garde electronic soundscapes, asked him to help in developing music to complement his performance art pieces. The two cut a 4-track EP, funded by Ball, entitled Mutant Moments, and were soon signed to the small label Some Bizarre Records. Working alongside Almond, who by this time had taken on the role of lead singer and lyricist at Ball's suggestion, the band achieved massive success with their cover of Gloria Jones's Tainted Love, which reached #1 in seventeen different countries and #8 in the U.S., where it stayed on the charts for 43 weeks, holding a then Guinness World Record for the longest such stay and becoming the biggest-selling UK single of 1981.

Ball then went on to release a solo album entitled In Strict Tempo, featuring Gavin Friday of The Virgin Prunes, and Genesis P Orridge of Throbbing Gristle. He then went on to produce electronic dance music records alongside producer Ingo Vauk and collaborator Richard Norris. Ball eventually teamed with Norris to form the techno group The Grid, and regrouped with Almond for a Soft Cell tour..

Come get this awesome chunk of left field dubby electronic sleeze..

Put Kraftwerk & DEVO in a swirly wind tunnel, and sprinkle some Disco Italo Vocorder space rock and you get.....


ROCKETS history starts in Paris (France), in the year 1972, when they were known under the name CRYSTAL. In 1974, they changed their name to ROCKET MEN (or ROCKETTERS) as five aliens, bald, with grey eyes, silver skin and space suits, recording the single 'Rocket Man' produced by Claude Lemoine, who would become their producer 'til 1983.

Digital Emotion

Back in the day NYC had a huge Electro Disco/Freestyle scene. Groups like New Order and The Petshop Boys used to troll these cool clubs like The Funhouse and Peppermint Lounge and "borrow" electronic ideas..

Here is a great release by Digital Emotion, a Dutch Electronic Disco trio.. Had a minor hit with "Don't Stop". Loads of vocorders, tin-y beats, and pure cheezy spacey electro brilliance..
