Artist: CRISPY AMBULANCE
Title: Plateau Phase
Format: LP
Label: Drastic Plastic
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"The Sex Pistols legendary June 1976 Manchester gig and the first performance of Magazine both inspired vocalist ALAN HEMPSALL to form CRISPY AMBULANCE in 1978. The band released their seminal and only full length LP, The Plateau Phase, in 1982 on Factory Benelux. This avant-garde sound is now considered an influence on post-punk, post-rock, gothic rock, and other atmospheric/melodic music with an artistic edge. Full of complex, yet minimalistic strings of music that surprise with intricacy and force, this release sounds as relevant today (if not more) than in the year of the its initial release. Faithfully reproduced aurally and visually, one can hear the influences of Brian Eno, Popol Vuh, and Joy Division pressing through Crispy Ambulances strummings and croonings on this utterly original work. A truly haunting tour de force. Limited edition of 1,000 copies." -Drastic Plastic.

Artist: SECTION 25
Title: Always Now
Format: LP
Label: Drastic Plastic
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
" Produced by Factory Records sound genius MARTIN HANNETT, SECTION 25s 1981 debut LP, Always Now, bears similar aural markers to label mates Joy Division and Crispy Ambulance. Full of the late 70s/early 80s post-punk zeitgeist, here is music borne out of punks simple and urgent delivery, but with loftier artistic aims and an introspective, more complex delivery. Always Nows songs lay out a darkening landscape examining and reexamining the twilight; an aural document of the grays comprising both light and dark. The impression is not unlike Pisarros pastoral evening landscapes...but bleaker and more evocative of ghosts and the sounds of their chains. Limited edition of 1,000 copies." -Drastic Plastic
