This is brilliant so far - partly reminds me of some of the disco-y stuff in the Ulysses 31 soundtrack, and some of it is *very* Stevie Wonder (his more synth-heavy stuff, which I utterly adore).

A M A Z E !

Took delivery of Jon Brooks (The Advisory Circle) new album called Shapwick this morning, and it's bloody marvellous. The initial 110 copies have sold out, packaged in a lovely hand made digipack. But it should be available again soon but maybe on vinyl.

Just a heads up to say that the Moore/Majuere "Brainstorm" album is now available on cassette from VCO Recordings, with free digital download included. Cost me $13/£8.50 including worldwide shipping.

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.

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 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.

[quote]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.[/quote]

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...

Other things I've been listening to this week:

[media]http://youtu.be/732Fg-uS2qE[/media]

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

[media]http://youtu.be/pGiAroxero8[/media]

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

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

This is how you do it!

(Coincidentally) YMO related, but I'm loving this.

Haruomi Hosono - Cosmic Surfin'

"This song is well-known as a tune of Yellow Magic Orchestra that Hosono formed, But Hosono did earlier on the LP "Pacific"('78) collaborated with famous musicians in Japan - Tatsuro Yamashita, Shigeru Suzuki, Takahiro Ishikawa and Masataka Matsutoya."

From a mix of weird and wonderful synth music by Egyptology.

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.

[media]http://youtu.be/3lnkoT9t1xs[/media]

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!
