ladies and gentlemen hold on. sit back and relax. plug in your headphones and turn the volume up and please, enjoy! this is analogue monologues vol. 1.1….
until a few moments ago the machine age made us believe there is no place anymore for anything which is not digital or non-virtual. vinyl was exclusively sold in very limited editions to some nerdy collector geeks digging the latest hot-shit surfacing the stock which is called the music market rubbing up their ego. let alone tapes. people barely remembered how these items were even looking much less still owning a cassette player, at least in the very west. thus i had a hard time passing along my mixtapes i spent countless hours on compiling to friends sharing some gems having been pressed on vinyl eons ago as it seemed and being long forgotten. and that was just a few years back.
but since our society and its disputable need for a constant progress heavily relies on trendsetting and even more so on just recreations of the same old madness it is not surprising that at a certain point these artifacts representing the analogue lifestyle of a time of which we thought it would be the future are freed from dust again. what turned into being unimaginable until just a few moments past is part of the general lifestyle again. the dernier cri.
official produced tape releases and tons of new vinyl. retro imagery. countless revivals and repressed releases of old heroes not that many gave a shit anymore. lets see for how long this phenomenon lasts and how long it remains palatable and above all what will happen to its perishable remains when the next fashion rips it all apart.
but in the meantime turn the volume up – this is how the obscure 80ies might have sounded and felt like in the western world at times when concrete was grey and wars were still considered cold……
next release will feature some more electronically charged tunes from that same era. thanks for tuning in…..
