Yellow Vinyl LP

Reissue of the 1981 debut LP by darkwave electronic pioneers, Schleimer K, based around the duo of Englishman Michael Wolfen and Frenchman Dominique Brethes and its music has two naturally interlaced aspects.

On the one hand, there’s the eccentric dandyism of British “punk gothique” (if we take Bauhaus as its strongest representative) and the musical intransigence of early industrial bands (like Throbbing Gristle or Cabaret Voltaire). On the other hand, we have the very obvious French touch of “coldwave”, varying from cold synth sounds to intense experiments.
