[Music] (Rekem) New LP Edition: Leif Elggren – Das Baank

Great news from Nicolas Malevitsis in Greece:

Dear all,

We are very excited to announce a new release on Rekem Records, co-produced
with Fragment Factory in Hamburg:

– A New Era Of Economical Growth And Prosperity And Safety And Power –

(LP, rekem 09 / [FRAG36])
Available January 15, 2016. Edition of 300 vinyl copies

We are proud to present this new solo album from veteran Swedish artist
Leif Elggren. Leif has been active as a writer, visual artist, stage
performer and composer since the late 1970s. On sound he works solo, in
collaborations, and as part of the Sons of God (with Kent Tankred). Work of
his has appeared on labels such as Ash International, Touch, Radium and
Firework Edition Records (which he co-runs with Kent Tankred). Skirting
both the area of pure sound, as well as that of symbolism, this new record
is a powerful statement on the limits of social and political absurdity and
corruption in our present time.

[Music] No Pigeonholes on Radio On January 2016 Big City Orchestra Special


For me, Don Campau was a leading light for cassette music and underground experimental sound. It’s great to hear that he’s got a radio show in Berlin playing some incredible music.

[Sample] Philip Jeck – Suite: Live In Liverpool


When I was collecting CDs from the legendary Touch Records label out of England, I came across the work of turntablist (for lack of a more appropriate term, as old vinyl records are his weapons of choice) Philip Jeck. The man was an alchemist as far as I was concerned, but I lost track of his releases about 6 years ago or so.

Thanks to my good friend Qualo Infinity, who posts scores of great music onto his Facebook page (both his own and others’) for enlightening me to this release.
