Artist: P.D.
Title: Inweglos
Format: CD
Label: Absurd
Country: Greece
Price: $13.00
"Little by little, the musical career of Ralf Wehowsky is unfolded on CD, either his work with P16.D4 or its predecessor PD. Some of these works were released as EaRLyW, simple because Wehowsky (aka RLW) was the main man behind P16.D4 and PD, but here as PD. The band included members such as RLW, Jochen Pense, Joachim Stender and Achim Szepanski. PD recorded Inweglos LP, but also a 7" and a flexidisc - the latter are not included in this release, for reasons I dont know. In some of these tracks PD is shown as a typical Neue Deutsche Welle band: finding their own form within rock music based on punk and new wave but in a more alternative form and as always with German lyrics. PD use to quite an extensive part synthesizers and rhythmboxes, along with bass guitars, guitars and vocals. At times they sound like a very free form improv band and at other times a more rock version of the early Der Plan, but without so much of humour involved in Der Plan. PD is much more political (see Ayatollah Carter) and also more dark in their lyrics - save for some hints towards disco in Progressive Disco. Some of the material forecasts the later P16.D4 work, such as in the semi cut-up of Kurzzug Nach Frankfurt, but in general fits the 1980 sound very well: distorted, free form music, taking punk and new wave in a much wider field of music. Maybe I didnt play the LP in many years, but the renewed appearance is for sure a good one. It was indeed one of those more obscure classics waiting to be re-issued." - FdW.
SOLD OUT

Artist: SONIC CATERING BAND
Title: Live from the Canteens of Atlantis
Format: Double CD
Label: Absurd
Country: GREECE
Price: $14.00
"Spanning their very brief live career from 1998 - 2001, the two CDs convey all that was exciting, frustrating, ridiculous and ultimately nourishing about an S.Catering performance. CD1 begins at the beginning: w/ the first carrot chop at Londons 333 nightclub, 27th September 1998 and ends at the end: Genevas Moloko restaurant, 9th November 2001. In between lies a lean collage mix of culinary overdrive, assembled from every gig the project did capturing the various moods & atmospheres that were created during their live sets. Extracts of their 5 hour shift at The Moloko are manipulated and included between tracks 1,3,5 and capture/present a dense atmosphere at the restaurant. a cd giving you a great example of their sound, showing nearly all of the projects sides, full of various & bizarre moods & atmospheres, sometimes a bit rhythmic or others harsh or obscure. CD2 is the documentation of their last proper performance at genevas forde gallery. An hours recording full of meditative, abstract,spacious soundscapes. This is sonic catering bands definitive live document, minus the food of course. The CDs come in a gatefold package with a reminisce by the band and a list of our live dates/venues." - Absurd.
