NAZ NOMAD AND THE NIGHTMARES
"give daddy the knife Cindy"
Year:    1984
Label:    Big Beat
Format:    CD, LP
Tracks:    12
Time:    36 min.
Genre:    rock
Style:            Garage Rock














"Naz Nomad and The Nightmares" was a one-off project featuring the members of British punk and gothic rock band The Damned. Naz Nomad and The Nightmares released one album entitled Give Daddy The Knife Cindy in 1984. The album was packaged to look like the re-issue of a 1967 soundtrack album to a (fictitious) low budget American horror film. A copyright notice on the front cover claimed the film was "Copyright 1967 American Screen Destiny Pictures", and credits are given for the film's stars, director and producer. The album itself featured covers of songs by garage rock and psychedelic acts who had influenced the Damned, plus two original numbers in the same style. Each member of the band took on pseudonyms different from those used in The Damned for the project.

"phantasmagoria"
Year:    1985
Label:    Universal
Format:    CD, LP
Tracks:    18
Time:    58 min.
Genre:    rock
Style:            Goth Rock













"Phantasmagoria" is the sixth album by The Damned, released by MCA records in July 1985. Special editions were available on white vinyl or picture disc — some versions included a free 12" of their No. 3 hit Eloise. After much wrangling, the Damned received a new contract with MCA Records in October 1984 (past member Captain Sensible's hit solo career helped) and recorded the album in Eel Pie Studios between March and June 1985. It reached No. 11 in the charts, and was the band's highest charting album ever. The non-album single "Eloise," (a Barry Ryan cover), released six months later, became a huge UK hit reaching No. 3. The Damned centred the entire album around David Vanian's deep voice, giving much of the album a gothic feeling. "Edward the Bear" is a light pop tune sung by Roman Jugg. The album is currently out-of-print in North America but was remastered and reissued by Geffen Records in Japan in 2007, which features replicas of the LP's outer and inner sleeves and the CD's label resembles the white vinyl edition. One of the best gothic albums written ever. Excellent

"anything"
Year:    1986
Label:    Universal
Format:    CD, LP
Tracks:    9
Time:    34 min.
Genre:    electronic
Style:            New Wave

















After Captain Sensible left the Damned in 1984 when his solo career took off with the freak success of his single "Happy Talk," Dave Vanian took over the creative reins of the group, and he began nudging their music in a direction that reflected his growing interest in the goth movement. The Damned's flirtation with goth led to them signing a major label deal for the first time and enjoying one of their biggest commercial successes with the 1985 album Phantasmagoria. But if that album found the Damned looking gingerly into a new direction, 1986's Anything was the sound of Vanian and company falling down a well; fans were probably savvy enough not to expect the Damned to sound like a straightforward punk band by this point, but most of Anything barely even qualifies as rock 'n' roll. The solo keyboard piece "The Portrait" bears an unfortunate resemblance to Nigel Tufnel's "Lick My Love Pump," "Restless" and "In Dulce Decorum" meander at length for all their thunder (and John Kelly's echoing production makes everything thunders if it's meant to or not), "Gigolo" suggests a failed merger of pop and prog rock, and "The Girl Goes Down" is a faintly ridiculous song that borrows from a number of vintage pop styles without distinction. Only "Psychomania" and the title cut generate anything approximating the energy of the Damned's best music, and it's telling that easily the best song on the album is a cover, a reasonably faithful rendition of Love's "Alone Again Or." The Damned began to crumble after Anything, and the band broke up for a spell in 1989; somehow it all seemed fitting after releasing the worst original album in the group's catalog. (*Review by Mark Deming ).

FATBOY SLIM


























"you've come a long way, baby"
Year:    1998
Country:    UK
City:    London
Label:    Skint
Format:    CD, 2 x LP
Tracks:    11
Time:    50 min.
Genre:    electronic
Style:            Breakbeat            Techno













You've Come a Long Way, Baby is the second studio album by English electronic music producer Fatboy Slim. It was first released on 19 October 1998 in the United Kingdom by Skint Records and a day later in the United States by Astralwerks. Cook recorded and produced the album at his home studio in Brighton, known as the House of Love, using an Atari ST computer, Creator software, and floppy disks. Its cover photo was originally taken at the 1983 Fat People’s Festival in Danville, Virginia; it was changed to an image of shelves stacked with records for its North American release.

You've Come a Long Way, Baby proved to be Cook's global breakthrough album, peaking at number one on the UK Albums Chart and number 34 on the US Billboard 200. Praised by critics for its sound and style, the album brought international attention to Cook, earning him a Brit Award in 1999, and was later certified four times platinum by the BPI and platinum by the RIAA. Four singles were released from the album: "The Rockafeller Skank", "Gangster Tripping", "Praise You", and "Right Here, Right Now", all of which peaked within the top-ten of the UK Singles Chart; "Build It Up - Tear It Down" was also released as a promotional single.

THE BREEDERS


























"all nerve"
Year:    2018
Country:    US
City:    Boston
Label:    4AD
Format:    CD, LP
Tracks:    11
Time:    36 min.
Genre:    rock
Style:            Alternative Rock












One of alternative rock's most promising -- and frustrating -- bands, the Breeders were conceived initially as a way for Pixies bassist Kim Deal and Throwing Muses guitarist Tanya Donelly to let out some suppressed creative energy and to take a break from being the second bananas in each of their main bands. Deal and Donelly both played guitar, leaving bass for Josephine Wiggs of Perfect Disaster. Taking their name from the group Deal led with her twin sister, Kelley, in their teens, the Breeders combined the spareness of Throwing Muses with the shifting dynamics and warped pop sensibilities of the Pixies. Pod, their critically acclaimed debut album, was released in 1990. Two years later, the group delivered Safari, a four-song EP that found the band getting more muscular and melodic. Soon after its recording, Donelly left the Breeders to form her own group, Belly. Kim Deal brought in her sister Kelley as her replacement. By this time, their permanent drummer was Jim MacPherson, who was billed as "Mike Hunt" on Safari. 1992 also saw the group play its first high-profile gigs, opening for Nirvana on their European tour.

"last splash"
Year:    1993
Label:    4AD
Format:    CD, LP
Tracks:    15
Time:    40 min.
Genre:    rock
Style:            Alternative Rock












Last Splash is the second album by American indie rock band The Breeders, released on August 31, 1993. Originally formed as a side project for Pixies bassist Kim Deal, The Breeders quickly became her primary recording outlet. Last Splash peaked at number 33 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and by June 1994, the album had been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for shipments in excess of one million units. The title of the album is taken from a lyric from its lead single, "Cannonball". The video for "Cannonball" was directed by Spike Jonze and Kim Gordon, and the video for the album's second single "Divine Hammer" was directed by Jonze, Gordon and Richard Kern. A looped guitar sample of "S.O.S." was used by the English electronic music band The Prodigy in their 1996 hit single "Firestarter". A sample from "I Just Wanna Get Along" was used in another track by The Prodigy called "World's on Fire" from the Invaders Must Die album. In 2003, Pitchfork listed the album at number 64 on their list of The Top 100 Albums of the 1990s. On May 13, 2013, 4AD released LSXX, a deluxe 20th anniversary version of the album.

FISCHERSPOONER



























"idem"
Year:    2000
Country:    US
City:    New York
Label:    International Deejay Gigolo
Format:    CD, LP
Tracks:    9
Time:    50 min.
Genre:    electronic
Style:            Electro













By now, you will have been getting many an eyeful of this new 'Electroclash' scene; in the Times, NME - even the Big Issue! Tiga and Zyntherius have stormed the charts with 'Sunglasses At Night', and pretty soon, you'll get an earful of the electroclash big daddies, NYC's Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner aka Fischerspooner. Since last summer, the NME have raved about them, especially forthcoming single 'Emerge', a storming, pulsating, minimal, sexy romp through Sleazeville, giving you all you need to know about Electroclash in under 5 minutes. Sadly, however, dance albums all sound the same these days. Apart from Fischerspooner.

The first track, 'Invisible' starts off with heavy, sexual breathing, a common theme throughout the whole album. Then, come the obligatory bleepy synths and drum machines. As far as first tracks go, it's pretty good, getting slower and faster and talking about "Eternal submission" and other deviant things. 'The 15th' is a cover of the Wire song (from their classic third album '154', and sounds like bouncy indie in a scuffle with Duran Duran. That's followed up by 'Emerge', but, of course, you know about that already. 'Fucker', the first and best of 2 instrumentals (on a nine-track album!) sounds like Kraftwerk. The highlight of the album is 'Turn On', a bleepy, synthy, vocodered climax of the albums first side. Unfortunately, after this, things get a bit mad, descending into slow dance boredom for 3 tracks (including the other instrumental 'Ersatz'), the album regaining it's potential with 'Natural Disaster', the final track. And that's it. What can I say? '#1' an album of ups and downs and, although not without its flaws, brings a touch of New York cool to your collection, without a guitar in sight (*Review by Alex Wisgard ).

Carsten Nicolai is a German artist and musician based in Berlin. For his musical outputs he uses the pseudonym Alva Noto. Born 1965 in Karl-Marx-Stadt he is part of an artist generation who works intensively in the transitional area between music, art and science. With a strong adherence to reductionism he leads his sound experiments into the field of electronic music creating his own code of signs, acoustics and visual symbols. His musical œuvre echoes in his work as a visual artist. Carsten Nicolai seeks to overcome the separation of the sensory perceptions of man by making scientific phenomenons like sound and light frequencies perceivable for both eyes and ears. His installations have a minimalistic aesthetic that by its elegance and consistency is highly intriguing. After his participation in important international exhibitions like Documenta X and the 49th and 50th Venice Biennale, Nicolai’s works were shown worldwide in extensive solo and group exhibitions.
