  • Dark Entries and Minimal Wave etc

    A while back I started a thread asking for EBM type stuff and didn't get too much in response. Since then though it appears that my prayers have been answered with Dark Entries and Minimal Wave and loads of others digging the hell of this genre to the extent that it's starting to feel like the sixties stuff that was compiled on Nuggets and Pebbles and Rubble and Back from the Grave and Highs in the Mid-Sixties and so on and so forth. As well as the compilations there are individual lps too - bands who played three gigs in 1982, were on the radio once and released one single are getting the album, or sometimes even box-set treatment. Which seems ridiculous.
    Anyway, I'd like some help sorting the wheat from the chaff here. Some of this stuff obviously doesn't need to be dug up, but some of it really really does. The other day I got an album by Van Kaye and Ignit and it's great, double-vinyl and all four sides are killer kinda post-punk pop with dirty electronics. Reminds me a little of the Robert Rental and Thomas Leer album called The Bridge but with shouty female vocals (at times). Highly recommended.
    Also, ordered an album by Ende Shneafliet after hearing this crazy bullet (which reminds me a lot of Beat by Chris Carter)



    Here's the Chris Carter tune for comparison (I need a copy of this by the way if anyone has one)




    So - any more tips for real great ones I should pick up? And any stinkers that should have remained buried?
    And why is this stuff being so dug over now? What started it off? Just great stuff that has been hidden too long or is it just that everything else has been reissued and this getting a turn is just inevitable.

    Loads of this stuff about
    I guess you've heard the Robert Rental/ The Normal record?
    I put some bleepy things on a Xmas mix a couple of years ago including Anna - Systems Breaking Down which I fished out of a charity
    Perhaps not harsh enough?



    What about AK Process After All Love?
    The youtube clip has been posted by our own Rockprof



    The B Side is also very dark and harsh - very much in the Robert Rental vein

        Compilation-wise I think (though they seem to be somewhat controversial in certain quarters) the Light Sounds Dark crew do good work.
        Lots of their comps have tracks from cassette-only releases from the 80s. By no means easy to find originals.
        The WYWH comp is good, and so is the Danger Electrified Tracks and the self-titled Light Sounds Dark double.

        I enjoyed this too

          That's a good charity shop find! Rare record and a good one too. I'll check your other suggestions now.

            Well, yeah that's what I was saying wasn't it? Although when you say "masses" I'm not convinced that there are masses of people who are ready for wilfully uncommercial, lo-fi recordings of aggressive weirdness from unknown eighties Dutch bands. But it's all relative.

              I've got that one in the picture but to be honest I haven't really listened to it that much, not enough to get a handle on it really.
              How are the Light Sounds Dark crew controversial? What have I missed (again)?

                Cherrystones has a comp coming out on a post punk tip. Veering more into Maximum Joy-ish territory judging by the Soundcloud tracks. Good stuff.

                  They seem to generate adverse publicity from disgruntled collectors.

                    Not particularly rare but the Minny Pops first LP and Drinking Electricity might also fit in the Cold Wave category

                          I really love the Deux album on Minimal Wave.

                          Im also really into this (newish) EP:

                              Nice French effort, just so icy and yet refined. More synth-wave than EBM or cold wave per se but a favourite around these parts. Seems to have been pressed in a really small amount back in 1985. There is quite a bit of French stuff that might fit the bill and quite a few compilations out there of it.



                              And this German effort by Alexander Hacke of Einsturzende Neubauten under a pseudonym
