12" Vinyl D02.06.17

the mythical transdance from uk duo night moves is given a much needed official repress by domestica records and the barcelona label have spared no expense. a limited pressing of 400 10-s come housed in hand screen printed sleeves accompanied by a leaflet with complete biography of the band. despite the paucity of night moves discography. it s clear the duo of michael guihen and john davis have had an everlasting effect on the canon of synth music with their much admired debut. transdance was originally released as a limited 12- white label in 1981. finding favour on the dance floors of europe and new york city yet never really gained the wider exposure it richly deserved. original copies of the gc1 pressing of transdance still command slightly ridiculous prices on discogs so kudos to domestica for this rather special presentation which features a previously unreleased demo cut -life up- on the flip.
out on vinyl for the very first time. these original recordings were produced by the band on a 4-track cassette deck in 86-87. except track a2. recorded on a 8-track tape recorder at 8pm studio in lyon (march 87).
the musical output by amsterdam trio s. m.nurse generated in just three years of activity. 1980 to 1983 is truly amazing by its volume and quality. the thats the body ep is their third release on domestica a selection of previously unknown tracks and unreleased versions on 12inch format. hand picked with one goal in mind: dancing! thats the body (1983) and on and off (1983) are first-ever releases. on side b. there s new versions of mort automatique (1981) and frutta (1982). previously found on the now expensive 30th anniversary: 1980-1983 album. released by domestica in 2013. edition of 450 copies. mastered from the original master tapes by ruud lekx.
the album was written. produced. and distributed in garys hometown baltimore. between 1986 and 1987. after a break from performing while getting belated college degrees. gary returned to performing in the early 21st century. back to the singer/songwriter style of his past. gary feels that the generic art ensemble/original soundtrack days gave him an ability to open up his writing. his recent albums feature guitar. but many songs do have keyboards added to give them a fuller. less folky sound.
around 1980 menko konings (em.) started the dutch underground formation s.m. nurse. first together with jos jak and later also with anneke stempher. s.m. nurse experimented with collage-like music and were inspired by n.y.-ultra. disco e.g. the band mainly performed in the amsterdam ultra-circuit (oktopus. paradiso). clubs and discotheques. they were played regularly on the famous radio programmes radionome and spleen and performed live on radio in the villa of the vpro in hilversum. they also contributed to the theme cassette turkish delight of the label ding dong and there was a cassette release on the label top tape. at the end of 1983. s.m. nurse split up.<vr />limited edition of 500 copies.

this record is the only existing document which collects an almost whole concert by kremlyn in their first stage as a duet. in their own essence. that is to say. with no musicians added. it took place in a little disco called *panagal*. on january the 6th 1984. and it was the fifth concert of the group since its creation in 1983. that was kremlyn in itself.
fernando gallego is not a music band which we can define as common. on the contrary. this group from uburriana. successor of funeraria vergara. started its history back in the early 1984. (after juan luis montoliu left). and it ended in 1986 with the emergence of the project *decúbito supino*. their usage of some synthesizers. amongst other gadgets. keyboards and large petrol cans. was the distinctive feature as regards to their predecessor band. such an echo defined a much more industrial and electronic sound. closer to early ebm.
limited edition of 300 copies. comes with din a3-sized poster printed double sided.
