MuhMur Radio Broadcast 7 June 2018.
Summer is approaching ...
This broadcast starts with a track from the new Templum N.R. release "Temple Of Nightside Revelations" a box set with 3 CD's a tape and various printed tracts.
Last week I received a package from Richard of The New Blockaders with the LP "Nurse With Wound Plays Les Changes Blockeurs". It is Steve Stapleton's reworking of the legendary debut LP from TNB released back in 1982. Twenty minutes of a carousel of vortex sounds. Dada in action.
Released last month was the collaborative album from MyTrip and Evitceles. The LP "Protective" features two tracks by each artist and two tracks from their collaborative project Protective. MyTrip opens the LP with the track "Relentless" which is a word I always associate with Clock DVA hence the playing of "Relentless" from the album "White Souls In Black Suits". Originally released on cassette format on Industrial Records in 1980. I play the remastered version from the 1990 vinyl LP on Italian Contempo Records. The 'same title different song' theme got me thinking and I managed to find "Industrial Estate" by Raudive Bunker Experiment twinned with the Fall classic from 1979. RBE existed in the early 1980's. Created by Andy Wilson in Weymouth (Dorset) they put out a handful of self released tapes before their one and only LP "Industrial Estate/A Knot" on Distant Heat Records. Andy also went on to play with Bourbonese Qualk. The two RBE tracks here are from the compilation box set released in 2009.
Last March I performed as part of Vagina Dentata Organ in Belper. Part of that performance (also) was Aja. Last month Opal Tapes released he first album. It is reviewed elsewhere on this blog, needless to say it has become a firm favourite here at MuhMur HQ. I do apologise - the levels were all over the place so the volume fluctuates somewhat.
On this day Young Marble Giants released their first EP on Rough Trade Records.
I have a habit of collecting the works / sounds of Thorsten Soltau at the moment. There are others, but Thorsten seems to have a habit of putting out sounds that I want to hear at the moment. Regular listeners to MuhMur Radio will have figured this out by now. The final quarter of the programme is dedicated to Thorsten. Twins Natalia are a project based in Brighton. There sound is synth-pop, electro dance music. There's a hint of cold wave in there but basically it is Dollar meets a Poundland Eddie & Sunshine. But their latest offering "When We Were Young - Rare Recordings And Demos" features a remix by Thorsten Soltau and Marina Stewart and it's available in the UK - saving on European P+P!
Black Letters For The Lilies is a collaboration between Thorsten and Susan Matthews. Buy the CD here : https://thorstensoltau.bandcamp.com/album/black-letters-for-the-lilies for only €9.00.
The new CD from Marina Stewart is a compilation / collection of songs from her vaults. It's called "Amends As Heresy" and is available on the m.m. label.
