Press Info (German only):
Der musikalische Leuchtturm der schwedischen Insel Gotland in Person von Mats From und seiner Band *Deutsche Bank* meldet sich pünktlich zur anstehenden Herbsttour 2019 mit einer neuen Veröffentlichung zurück, die den klangvollen Namen “Grand Transmission” trägt!

Das vorliegende Werk “Grand Transmission” ist eine musikalische Werkschau durch alle 3 digitalen Veröffentlichungen der *Deutschen Bank* auf dem schwedischen Label PLONK Musik! Bei den 10 Tracks, die jene neue CD enthält, kann der geneigte Fan, der bei der “Autopop”-Veröffentlichung im CD & Vinyl-Format einst leer ausging, nun auch nochmal einen Blick zurückwerfen und findet 4 Tracks dieser VÖ erneut hier, enthalten als kleine Retrospektive…doch gerade die neuen und bisher auf CD nicht veröffentlichten Tracks wie “Zero Gravity” , “Transmission” oder “Neurotransmitter” zeigen auf, wo die musikalische Zukunft liegt in Sachen Electronic/a!

Mats From scheint sich fast gar freigeschwommen zu haben von den Kraftwerk-Sounds und schafft eigene Klangwelten, die wie ein Fels in der Brandung stehen…und wir dem ganz gelassen ins Auge sehen – erneut eine bald gesuchte CD unter den Sammlern kreiert zu haben!

Press Info:
CARTER TUTTI VOID (Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void) have an-nounced their third and final studio album Containing all new studio recordings, Triumvirate brings Chris Carter, Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void’s collaborative partnership as Carter Tutti Void to a conclusion.

The trio first came together as a collective for a live performance, invited by Mute for the Short Circuit Festival in 2011 and released their acclaimed debut, the live album Transverse the following year. Carter Tutti Void went on to release f(x) (Industrial Records, 2015), their first studio recording and performed a handful of selected shows, culminating in their final live performance in Hull, part of a series of events for Hull City of Culture 2017 centred around the COUM Transmissions retrospective at Humber Street Gallery.

For some time Carter, Tutti and Void have been awaiting an opportunity when all three artists were able to gather at Carter and Tutti’s Studio47 in Norfolk, where the album was recorded, produced and mastered. Triumvirate was ap-proached with the improvisational spirit of previous Carter Tutti Void albums.

The rhythms, created by Chris Carter, formed the foundation and starting point from which the process began of melding the live instrumentation of Cosey Fanni Tutti and Nik Void’s searing guitars, vocals, effects and the arsenal of sounds each had amassed from a variety of sources, some sounds manipulated to extremes, all fed into the mix. Tying the album together is the power of three, and a free open approach to sound shared by the trio.

Chris Carter recently released his first solo album in 17 years, Chris Carter’s Chemistry Lessons Vol. 1 (Mute, 2018) and Cosey Fanni Tutti’s TUTTI, her first album since 1982, came out ear-lier this year on Conspiracy International (home of Chris and Cosey since 1982). Nik Void is currently working on her debut solo album.

Small Moon Redux

 

Press Info:
After Chris Carter released the live album Disobedient in 1998, followers of the Throbbing Gristle mainstay remained a little unsatisfied. After all, Carter still hadn’t issued a solo studio LP in well over a decade (1985’s Mondo Beat being the previous entry). A short year after Disobedient dropped, fans were treated to Small Moon, a record that both builds on the successes of Disobedient and also sees Carter offering up some of the most dancefloor-friendly material of his career.

The Throbbing Gristle sound had always contained a good dose of techno and club music, but on Small Moon it feels like Carter is specifically making music to dance to. Opener ‘Arcadia’ is a righteous mix of chopped-up drum fills, ambient house production ala The Orb and a kick drum that wouldn’t sound out of place on a gabber tune. ‘Praxiz’ and ‘Soho … 3am’ take this sound in different directions – the former is an EBM trip, the latter is on more of a sunrise breakbeat tip.

In the middle of Small Moon we find Carter developing the psychedelic ambiences of Disobedient while also bringing back a little of Throbbing Gristle’s wild experimentation. With its dusky production and glowworm melodies ‘Klyyp’D’ could be a companion piece to Carter’s beloved ‘Moonlight’, while the dubby ‘Non-Pop’ sets the scene for King Midas Sound to enter the fray some years later. This new edition of Small Moon also comes with the bonus ‘Small Moon Redux’ at the end of the record.

Small Moon is one of Chris Carter’s most enduring pieces, an LP which sees him putting his unique musical mind in service of groove and texture.

Disobedient Redux

 

Press Info:
Mute’s Chris Carter series continues with this new edition of the 1998 live LP Disobedient. The Throbbing Gristle fellow hadn’t released a solo album for well over a decade by the time Disobedient came out, so it’s safe to say that people were curious to see what Carter was getting up to as the new millennium approached. With these tracks, recorded at gigs during 1995 in London, Manchester and Vienna, they got their answer.

On this record Carter updates his hot-headed industrial style for the era of electronica. There are moments across this LP when it feels as if Carter is at once playing with and passing judgement on contemporaneous trends in electronic music. Boards Of Canada, Andrew Weatherall and even the downtempo sound of Lemon Jelly and Air can be detected in the makeup of tracks like ‘Chakutut’ and ‘TVX’. However, it is Carter’s trick to stir up these sounds into potent psychedelic broths, and his heady atmospherics prefigure the work of Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement. The dubwise production that laces Disobedient also herks back to post-punkers like A Certain Ratio and The Pop Group.

More than two decades on from the original release, Carter revisits the Disobedient sound on this latest pressing with the bonus track ‘Disobedient Redux’. The eleven-minute-long epic of hulking synths and smoky textures shows that Carter still sees the value in a little disobedience.

Presenting a selection of recordings of his 1995 Disobey tour, Chris Carter’s Disobedient lit the way for a new generation of freaks and weirdos.

Press Info:
The inimitable Chris Carter released his sophomore solo LP Mondo Beat in 1985. Dropping a half-decade after his Industrial Records debut The Space Between, this sextet of tunes has come to establish itself as one of the essential works of the extended Throbbing Gristle catalogue. Think of Mondo Beat as TG’s Liquid Swords.

Mondo Beat is best-known for ‘Moonlight’, a track that is now considered an essential piece in the story of industrial music and New Beat. The chugging synth bassline, dreamy spools of melody and zip-zap rhythm bring to mind D.A.F. if they’d slipped into a sort of Lynchian reverie, possibly with a Cocteau Twins LP spinning away in the background. It’s still a masterpiece all these years later.

The tracks ‘Noevil’ and ‘Mondo B’ run with the ‘Moonlight’ template, albeit removing some of the more harmonious elements to concentrate on groove and texture. ‘Real Life’ and ‘Beyond Temptation’ lead the listener down a darker path – while the former comes across like The Pet Shop Boys reimagined by Bauhaus, ‘Beyond Temptation’ is the sort of lacerated EBM delight that finds itself in vogue once more at the time of this reissue. Completing the record is the murky anti-music experiment ‘Nobadhairdo’.

Chris Carter’s Mondo Beat shows us what happens when industrial musicians try a little tenderness.
