"DDV & AMVK are true industrial pioneers. Besides playing in a band they also ran an artspace and published music + a magazine (Force Mental) in the early 80s. Side A of this record documents the song Lonely Weekends, recorded live on their first ever live performance at Künstlerhaus, Stuttgart (Germany) in 1981. For this occasion DDV and AMVK were joined by ETAT BRUT. For the flipside of this 7" Mauro Pawlowski exclusively remixed the perverted anthem "Gun"." - Dead Mind.

Title: Instruments of Attraction (II. Sociale Hygiene)
Format: 10"
Label: No Basement Is Deep Enough
Country: Belgium
Price: $18.00
"First of all : may your brain brie melt on the raclette of the 011 life! A faux decennium after the release of "Instruments of Attraction I - Cerebrale Pathologie" on the Kapellmeister label, a second Club Moral archive in the form of a 10" elpee is presented by No Basement Is Deep Enough : "INSTRUMENTS OF ATTRACTION (II. SOCIALE HYGIENE)" (NBIDE#2). Approximately half a year after visual artist Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven discovered body artist Danny Devos (who sent out inivitations to people to search for him in the International Cultural Centre -the first Flemish contemporary art institute, based in Antwerp- where he hid himself with only a hand of sleeping pills in his pockets), Club Moral was formed on the 1st of January 1981, as a performance group and as an all purpose art space. CM soon became both a pioneering DIY player on the Flemish art scene as an internationally praised Euro noise/power electronics/aktionist duo, by Google-intellectuals often put in one sentence with the Come Organisation, TG and Industrial Records, Con-dom, Le Syndicat, Controlled Bleeding, etc. etc. Their vast network and the publication of their own Force Mental magazine created a steady spew of limited CM cassette releases, compilation contributions (e.g. on the infamous Für Ilse Koch elpee), concerts and exhibitions. The failliet of the flower power ideals was mainly expressed by the extreme nature of the in Force Mental (e.g. a controversial article on Whitehouse and pornographic art work by Peter Sotos) and at the industrial CM space exhibitioned art and held performances (a Boyd Rice/NON show only attended by 35 people, to name one). Altough the taboo breaking flirts with the aestethics of e.g. the New Right only had to do with their amoral vision on the synergy between sound, image, action and space, they were often misunderstood. The fact that after a while there was more input from bar philosophers and neo-fascists than from contemporary artists with a more socially healthy vision, made them stop their living room activitities in the late 80s. AMVK dived into the world of computer art and started to focus even more on her personal investigations concerning feminism and the working brain -which eventually lead to a cultural award by the Flemish Governement, hailing her whole carreer-, while DDV expanded his interest in true art crime, seeing parallels between the psychological processes and modi operandi of serial killers and artists -his letters to and from e.g. John Wayne Gacy are still available online-, and kept on doing performances. A small 90s hiatus aside, CM is still active nowadays as an experimental live act. These seven steps away from social hypochondria were culled from the large body of Club Moral live recordings along some rare compilation tracks, all dating from the 80s. Comes in a pro-printed sleeve - liner notes on the front, "AMVK+DDV being socially hygienic on an Antwerp tram" pic on the back- and with a repress of the 12 page booklet that also accompanied the first 10" and that includes the CM history in the form of an essay by Jan Landuyt, archival photographs and a bunch of literary quotes. One time pressing of 520 copies." -No Basement Is Deep Enough
