Ten Mad Mongers - Deathbeat (LP 1986)

Ten Mad Mongers where initially a one-man project but became a real band after Lorenz Ritter recorded a 9-Track LP, "Deathbeat", at White Noise Studio, Hamburg. Having no label and the attic full of freshly pressed records, it quickly became clear that forming a band and playing gigs might help selling the record. Consisting by three quarters of the former punk-outfit Blanker Hohn, the band began rehearsing and played several gigs. Highlight was an opening show for the legendary Sort Sol at Lund University, Sweden.

Victrola - Maritime Tatami (12'' 1983)

Victrola was a minimal wave duo (Eze and Carlo) from Messina but based in Florence, breathing so the same air as Neon, Pankow but also Alexander Robotnick and Diaframma.

Guess there's nothing else to say on this GREAT record, the only one that the band released (not considering 'Into The Gloves' track, included in the famous 'Gathered' compilation'), i put it simply in the top 5 of the Italian New Wave period.

As i know from personal informations, for this 12'' the duo used: Roland Tr 606 (with separate outputs) and Roland Tr 303 Bassline, Roland Juno 6, Korg Polysix, Fender Stratocaster amplified with Lab Series Lp5 filtred with a MXR flanger

Here you can find an interview to Victrola, but in Italian language only.

Violette Nozière - La Dame En Noir (12" 1984)

The history of Violette Nozière began in December 1981, in Mont-Saint-Aignan, on the campus of the University of Rouen (France), founded by Pascal Grimbert (keyboards), Christophe Magniez (bass), Bruno Simoni (guitars) and Herve Tirilly (voice). The four teachers find themselves in the evening to make music in a room of the University City. The first concerts at the Ecole Normale will signal the start of a short-lived career which ended with the exit of the maxi 12'' vinyl, 'La Dame En Noir', in 1984. The group was also part of the 'Première transmusicale rouennaise', that was pressed as a lp compilation.

The 12'' was self-produced and recorded/mixed at Rocking System studio during the 16-19 Feb. 1984. It contains also a B/W inlay sheet (LP size) with greetings and lyrics.
