Label : CorZar Records, Russia, 2004 (Unofficial release)
Limited edition of 123 numbered copies
In a comment to the "Berlin Atonal" post I made a few weeks ago, IRONFLAME.de anounced a forthcoming festival that would be a kind of "Berlin Atonal" following. "Berlin Bruit" will take place on august 30th and will feature amongst others the mysterious and legendary Werkbund !
To celebrate that event, I've decided to post the two Werkbund records that are not available on blogs yet.
The first is the unofficial CD released by russian label Corzar Records, that includes the two vinyls "Tanz Und Andacht" (1997) and "Rungholt" (1989).
The second post will be their last LP, "Weit Draussen", released in 2006 by Walter Ulbricht Schallfolien.
The 80's post-industrial cassette network has given birth to jewels that sometimes unfortately remained obscured. Some of the most brilliant tapes were never rereleased on vinyl or CDs, such as those by Maybe Mental or La Sonorité Jaune just to mention a few names... M. Finnkrieg is one of these artists who deserved a larger recognition. Mike, the owner of Berlin-based Deaf Eye label, released three cassettes under that name. The first one, "Down The Poppy Stairs Of Heaven", was issued on Deaf Eye and later rereleased by Harsh Reality Music in the US. The second cassette, "Exit/Accidental" is my favourite ; it contains short tracks of experimental synth-pop and has always reminded me early Severed Heads records. The third and last one, "Worth Less Than Ideas", was released by Audiofile Tapes in the US and is very good as well ; I can post it later if there's any interest...

Dark Alceste De Socaï Vômie was the first name used by french artist Marc Alhanati for his musical project. He was revealed to the post-industrial music network with his debut LP, "Tristesse Psychotronique", released by RRRecords in 1991. "Ondes Neuronales" was his second record. Another CD was later released under the name Dark Vomal Âme-Code, but I've never heard it. In 1995, he performed live at the "Expériences" festival organized by G.M.B.H. label in Paris. I've never heard again about him since then...
