Electronic Concept Orchestra - Moog Groove (1967, US, electronic) 
Sunday, October 8, 2006, 04:30 PM - Music, - US, English
The Electronic Concept Orchestra made three albums: Moog Groove, Cinemoog and Electric Love. All containing Moog versions of popular songs. I got Moog Groove from Feddo (thanks), my mate in old psychedelic music. It is a pressing from 1969.
I think The Electronic Concept Orchestra was not a real orchestra, it was Robin McBride as director, Eddie Higgins on Moog and other keyboards and a bunch of studio musicians.



My lp is a bit scratchy and the noise reduction software works more on the synthesizer than on the clicks. So I post mp3's that I've downloaded a while ago.

Side one:
1 Aquarius
2 Oh Happy Day
3 Hey Jude
4 Both Sides Now
5 Grazing In The Grass

Side two:
1 Feelin' Alright
2 Penny Lane
3 Atlantis
4 Rock Me
5 Windmills of Your Mind

Gerry & the Holograms - Meet the Dissidents (1979, UK, electronic/new wave/weird) 
Friday, October 6, 2006, 09:35 PM - Music, - UK, English
gramm...gramm...gramm...gramm...gramm...gramm...
I wish I wrote those words.
Another Absurd Record.
'Did I say there were 16 of me? / I'm sorry, there's only 1 / The others are just fragments / Of Gerry and The Holograms...'



I read somewhere that they also produced a 7" called 'The Emperor's new music', which you couldn't play because it was glued to the sleeve.

Minny Pops - Kojak (1979, NL, electronic/new wave) 
Wednesday, October 4, 2006, 08:51 PM - Music, - NL, English
Dutch band, at the time of this Kojak 7" formed by Wally van Middendorp (vocals, Korg Mini Pops rhythm box), Frans Hagenaars (bass) and Peter Mertens (guitar).
The latter I know from P.A.R.K., our tv and internet art broadcasting foundation.



Very minimalistic electronic music.
The Minny Pops have their own site, not much happened there since december 12th 2004.

Transvolta - Disco-Computer (1978, BE, electronic/disco) 
Tuesday, October 3, 2006, 11:46 PM - Music, - BE, English
This was the prediction of the Groovebox.
Nice mechanic disco tune with vocoder.
Transvolta actually is Dan Lacksman of Belgium band Telex.
Telex represented Belgium for the 1980 Eurovision Song Contest and immediately the organisation made a problem about the use of the vocoder.
This fuzz caused Telex not to use it. Instead of that they made a very lame show, ridiculing the glitter acts (Telex used confetti out of their pockets)



B-side is an extension of the same song.

Passage - New Love Songs (1978, UK, electronic/new wave) 
Sunday, October 1, 2006, 01:25 PM - Music, - UK, English
Passage was a band from Manchester and produced the first years two 'concept singles': 'New Love Songs' and 'About Time'.
For the first one they were accused of sexism and, well, if you listen to the lyrics on 'Love Song' and you don't have humor, you can understand that.
Only '$lit Machine' of 'New Love Songs' is a bit electronic, and that e.p. I post, but all songs are very good.



Dick Witts - drums
Tony Friel - bass
Lorraine Hilton - keyboards

1 Love Song
2 Competition
3 $lit Machine
4 New Kind of Love

The record label 'Object Music' has a nice 60's style logo, you have to download the post to see it.

........and the Native Hipsters - There goes Concorde again....... (1980, UK, electronic/weird) 
Saturday, September 30, 2006, 08:15 PM - Music, - UK, English
Very weird record.
I think most people find it irritating.
........and the Native Hipsters are Nanette Greenblatt and William Wilding.
Typical 'do it yourself', they even stamped the label themselves.



1 - There goes Concorde again........
2 - Stands, still the building
3 - I wanna be around (Paul)
