VOIGT/465 - Slights Still Unspoken (1978-1979)
Mental Experience present an expanded reissue of Voigt/465s 1979 album Slights Spoken, titled Slights Still Unspoken (1978-1979). Formed in Sydney in 1976, Voigt/465 was a truly unique band from the exciting days of the Australian post-punk scene. Heavily influenced by such luminaries as the Velvets, Stooges, Syd Barrett, Pere Ubu, Can, Faust, Henry Cow, Slapp Happy, and Enos Roxy Music, they created an abrasive sound in which krautrock, DIY, avant-garage, post-punk, psych, art-rock, and free improv-noise combined to form a sound unlike any other. In 1978, they released one of the first DIY 45s from Australia, State/A Secret West, which showed their pop-psych" side and was played by John Peel in the UK. The following year, their bass player Lindsay OMeara decided to leave the band and join Crime & The City Solution in Melbourne. Before parting ways, Voigt/465 decided to record one last album as a testament. Slights Spoken saw the light in 1979 and its without doubt one of the most fascinating albums from the post-punk/DIY era. The entire album is featured here, including the two tracks from their first 45.
