Morton Subotnick - The Wild Bull (1968, US, electronic) 
Sunday, October 28, 2007, 10:58 PM - Music, - US, English
This Piece was named after a Sumerian poem (c 1700 BC).
Morton Subotnick always used the Buchla synthesizer as his electronic instrument. Don Buchla was the west coast counterpart of the east coast Bob Moog. His synthesizers didn't have real keyboards, they were made for producing electronic sounds, not melodies.

Rema-Rema - Wheel in the Roses (1980, UK, new wave) 
Wednesday, October 17, 2007, 11:36 PM - Music, - UK, English
The band consisted of Gary Asquith (guitar/vocals), Marco Pirroni (guitar), Mick Allen (bass/vocals), Mark Cox (keyboards) and Max (drums). Their sole EP, Wheel In The Roses, featured one side of studio recordings and another of live material. Their songs "Fond Affections" and "Rema-Rema" were later covered by This Mortal Coil and Big Black respectively.

Rema-Rema split up shortly after the EP's release in April 1980. Pirroni later hit the big time with Adam And The Ants. Asquith, Allen and Cox formed the short-lived Mass with Danny Briottet. Asquith then moved on to Renegade Soundwave, while Cox and Allen stayed with 4AD as part of The Wolfgang Press.

Drummer Max Prior went on to form El Trains (with Jay Strongman) and worked with Genesis P Orridge and Industrial Records as a solo artist under her real name (Dorothy), eventually joining Psychic TV full time.

Now available on cd and iPod.

Side one (studio):
1 Feedback Song [6:30]
2 Rema-Rema [4:11]

Side two (live june 1979):
1 Instrumental [4:00]
2 Fond Affections [4:00]

B.B.Gabor - B.B.Gabor (1979, CA, pop) 
Tuesday, October 2, 2007, 06:55 PM - Music, - CA, English
B. B. Gabor was the stage name of Gabor Hegedus (1948-1990), a Hungarian-born Canadian pop singer. Hegedus fled with his parents to England in 1956 after the Soviet invasion of Hungary.
On January 17, 1990, Gabor's body was found by police at his Toronto apartment. His death was ruled a suicide. Always sad to hear those things.

Jean-Marie Aerts - guitar
Serge Feys - synthesizer
Rudy Cloet - drums
Ferre Baelen - bass

5 songs, 18'26"
