Passage - About Time (1979, UK, new wave/electronic) 
Thursday, May 3, 2007, 09:30 PM - Music, - UK, English
Last weeks, a couple of 7"s were lying near my turntable, but I could not bring myself to rip them. Every time I stumbled upon a library or other odd lp.
Finally, here is the first one: the second concept single of Passage, About Time, you can say that. It took them about a year to release this after the first one, New Love Songs (which I posted in October last year). The music is a bit like the early Cure and the Monochrome Set. Produced by David Cunningham, who formed and led the Flying Lizards.



Side 1:
Sixteen Hours / Time Delay [7:02]

Side A:
Taking My Time [2:42]
Clock Paradox [2:29]

Gert Jan Tchaikovsky - An der schönen blauen Donau (1970? DE, weird) 
Monday, April 16, 2007, 01:10 PM - Music, - DE, English
Who is this guy?
Where did he play?
Why?




I have this recording on cassette tape, taken from a Dutch compilation lp Laugh Story (EMI 5 C050 24921). Also appearing on that record: Stan Freberg, the Master Singers and Mrs Miller.
I think he's Dutch, but he's mad enough to be Belgium and bad enough to come from anywhere.
André van Duin used this tune several times pretending it was played by Pieter van Vollenhoven, piano playing prince of the Netherlands.

Anybody knows more? Please mail me.

Synthesizers Unlimited - Electric Bazaar (1974, UK, electronic) 
Friday, April 6, 2007, 06:19 PM - Music, - UK, English
Synthesizers Unlimited is a project by Anthony King of whom I don't know much. He performed Soul of the city on the album of Gunther Leonhardt (1971) and collaborated with John Matthews on Pots and Sides (1974).
He also made “Lost star” in the seventies, according to Vitalis on Scopia and you can find some work of King and Chris Vander (Magma?) on Workforce - Percussion Unit from 1980.
Connoisseurs can tell from the picture of the cover it is not an original copy. The typography is different. This is from a bootleg cd.
