I love YMO more than my own family. I've been meaning to recommend their film, Propaganda, for a while now. Most of it makes little sense, but it's deliciously tongue-in-cheek and performances are the business, so it's well worth a watch if you can find the full thing.

Technopolis/Rydeen


Ballet


Also been listening to Yukihiro Takahashi's Neuromantic LP loads recently. Probably my favourite of the YMO solo albums (well, Hosono and Sakamoto still play on it, but y'know).



Damn fine, beautifully constructed technopop. I think it's massively underrated.

I'd like to agree with you!

Nothing like finding a band by chance and them being fucking amazing.

I watched The Warriors at the cinema last night, so Epic on the big screen. Anyway, I had to post this.



I love some of he synth tracks on this album, such iconic sounds.

I just ordered a brand new pressing of Fabio Frizzi's Zombi 2 (Zombie Flesh Eaters) soundtrack from this new label specialising in cult movie soundtracks on vinyl with lovely artwork. They also have Escape from New York available.





Amazing music.

I'm a massive fan of the Zombi 2 soundtrack, its probably more defining of the zombie genre than Goblin's DotD soundtrack.

Nice choice of label name. I used to love listening to Death Waltz whilst walking through an empty Manchester Arndale.

I hope they do a pressing of the Let Sleeping Corpses lie soundtrack too, that's a gem and a half.

Just looked at the website and noticed they are doing a Let Sleeping Corpses Lie pressing too (aka Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue). The subscription deal sounds good too.

The whole album's really good fun actually - some corking cheesy anthemic rock songs too. I listen to it loads.

Woah.

You don't play the ANS synthesizer with a keyboard. Instead you etch images onto glass sheets covered in black putty and feed them into a machine that shines light through the etchings, trigging a wide range of tones. Etchings made low on the sheets make low tones. High etchings make high tones. The sound is generated in real-time and the tempo depends on how fast you insert the sheets.

Another great track from this album popped up on shuffle today. Sounds totally fresh and new - I thought it was Davy DMX until I checked! Wish there were extended versions...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah0rVDAJVK0&feature=player_detailpage#t=459s
B. Tikhomirov - Competition. (7.39 - 8.56)

Other things I've been listening to this week:

http://youtu.be/732Fg-uS2qE

Awesome soviet electronic pop that somehow ended up sounding like a spacey Detroit take on 'Popcorn'.

http://youtu.be/pGiAroxero8

Russian electro freshness, made to promote the glory of the soviet sports committee or some nonsense.

Just heard this whilst getting a ride in my mates car


What the fuck did they do to my beloved Goblin? That's not how you do it.

This is how you do it!

Hosono is awesome. This is my favourite of his:



Bloody disabled embedding. Who does that? Anyway, I love Jun Togawa's version as well, particularly for the mid-song giggles.



This one isn't really appropriate for the thread but it's possibly my favourite telly performance ever so shut it.



That bloody robo-arm!

Anyone got round to checking the new Steve Moore album yet? I think it released a fortnight ago or so. The previous one, I think we can all agree, was pretty great.

I adore this thread. Been keeping me in good music for hours now.

Ive been listening to alot of modern synthesized music lately. Not too sure what genre you'd call it but music from the Rosa Corsa label aswell as similar stuff. Usually done with a deep sense of nostalgia and melancholica for the pop culture of the 1980s and other stuff. Think music from the movie Drive, Kavinsky type stuff.

Try these and see what you think :)







Put these on, loud, and try not to grimace with pure pleasure or something :D

I'm sure you all know this anyway, but if you're hailing the synth, you should be hailing this thread too - http://www.rllmukfor...3-depeche-mode/

Oh man, that's some solid gold, right there.

A bit of Bandcamp searching took me to Protector 101's Robocop-inspired EP, which I've had on all afternoon. It's taken all my will not to start breakin' and lockin' in the office :)

Just noticed that Umberto's new album is up on Spotify.

Umberto – Night Has A Thousand Screams

And he's got another one on the way in February, apparently.
