Solar X is Roman Belavkin from Russia. All tracks are recorded in Moscow. Worm Interface is a new label housed on Berwick St. in London's Soho, where a dozen record stores line a single block. The label is quickly establishing an identity for its presentation of experimental hectic electronic music.
April 20, 1999
A compilation out of Germany with many bands we already love, like Yummy Fur, Beatnik Filmstars, Vyvan, Electric sound Of Joy, Famous Boyfriend, Steward, Rudolph Rocker, and The Male Nurse, along with 12 other bands from Scotland, Wales, and England.
Compiles tracks that this Rickenbacher playing Mod band released between 1978 and 1981. The London band included a member from Boston and one from Ottowa.
Blow Up is a great label, as well as a pool of DJ's (most notably The Karminsky Experience) who sponsor Saturday nights at The Wag Club on Wardour St. in London every Saturday and Baby Blow Up at Gossips on Dean St. in Soho. Lucky 15 is a band from Japan who play something that at times sounds like a kitschy Prolapse recording for Bungalow Records.
2nd single from this Dublin Ireland young trio who play music like the Bobbyteens
"Six Secs" is from their CD, and "Try It" is a radical cover of The Standells. This Berlin DAT-accompanied-by-vocal "band" feature the duel vocals of Gina D'Orio and Annika Trost. They are DHR's most obvious concession to Pop. They sound like the London band Chicks On Speed, who share a recent double 7inch w/ DMX Krew.
Rebound is a label from the Netherlands, and this EP has a varied roster. There is Guided by Voices, To Rococco Rot (my fave track on this), Bill Ding, Hood, and 2 others.
This Glasgow band is made up of former members of the Pastels, Appendix Out, and Incense. They sound kind of like The Lines or The Only Ones.
