NEW COLD SPRING RELEASE

COIL ‘BACKWARDSCD / 2LP (Cold Spring CSR203CDLP)

After the ground-breaking release of 1990’s “Love’s Secret Domain” album, Coil were not dormant; the main project was “Backwards”, which was started in 1992, updated considerably between 1993 and 1995, and transferred in 1996 to New Orleans, where it was finished in the magic of the Nothing studios of Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails). The album saw the fruition of Jhonn Balance’s recent vocal coaching, producing haunting, passionate vocals, while reaching new heights.

23 years after its initiation, these tracks have been beautifully preserved by Danny Hyde and are finally available in highest quality audio. Differing substantially from the later, remixed incarnation, “The New Backwards” (2008), “Backwards” contains the original versions of Coil’s much-loved tracks; ‘A Cold Cell’ and ‘Fire Of The Mind’, which have appeared on various compilations over the years, and are now presented as originally intended.

This album is the essential bridge between “LSD” and the later “Musik To Play In The Dark” series. It is an essential conduit, to understand the journey that was taken. It was to be released… it should have been released… but because of issues with grey men it wasn’t. It is now, so enjoy. (Danny Hyde).

Hello everyone,
behold the preorders on our next two reissues being released the first week of October:

MR-054  Red Fetish “A Derangement Of Synapses” LP
MR-055   Zeus B. Held “Vinyl Collection” LP

Here are the descriptions/links/covers:

MR-054  Red Fetish “A Derangement Of Synapses” LP  $17

Medical Records presents a hand-picked selection of home recorded demos from  Stoke, UK’s Red Fetish. Armed with a Korg 770, Yamaha CS10, Korg Rhythm 55, a guitar here and there and a Teac 244 four track recorder, the band consisted of Neale James Potts and Mike Richardson. Red Fetish featured members from All The Madmen and Decades By Night and later evolved into The Cone and Tiger Club.   These tracks were recorded in 1982-83 and all culled from various cassettes that the band recorded.  The tracks for this special release (technically not a reissue) were hand picked by Medical Records out of a large demo collection (often multiple versions of certain songs). Red Fetish was heavily influenced by UK late 70’s new wave as well as rock staples such as Pink Floyd, Beatles, and Hawkwind. The songs are built from very minimal and sparse synth lines yet the overall feel is interestingly dense and warm. Standout tracks include the playful and futuristic “Modern Age” and “The Last Man”. A few of these tracks were previously released (different version) on a 7” on Anna Logue (Germany) but most have been largely unheard until now.  Sprinkled in amongst the catchy vocal pop songs are quite a few very warm and synth heavy instrumentals as well such as “The Immortals” and “Blaze”. This collection will absolutely be another piece of the highly intriguing and ever-deep well of minimal synth acts such as other contemporaries Oppenheimer Analysis, Twilight Ritual, Iron Curtain, and the like.  Certainly fans of early Human League (especially The Future), early cassette culture wave and similar will enjoy this collection immensely. Remastered from cassette by Martin Bowes.  Presented on high-quality 180gram heavyweight half and half colored vinyl (red and white) with sleeve design by Steve Lippert. Limited edition release.

MR-055  Zeus B. Held “Vinyl Collection” LP    $17

Medical Records is elated to reissue a very special vinyl collection consisting of a hand picked selection of vocoder and synth tracks by the one and only Zeus B. Held.  Zeus is a well-known and acclaimed German musician and producer also made famous for producing Gina X Performance (also reissued by Medical Records).  Zeus first began his musical career in the mid 1970’s with the German prog rock group “Birth Control”. Subsequently, he recorded three solo albums: “Zeus’ Amusement (1978), “Europium” (1980) and “Attack Time” (1981). He performed a number of interesting live shows supporting the albums all over Europe using a number instruments such as Fender Rhodes, Hohner Clavinet, Hammond Organ, Poly and Minimoog, ARP sequencers and most importantly, a Sennheiser Vocoder VSM 201 among other various instruments. His musical influences ranged from Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson to Kraftwerk and Steve Reich.  Zeus also was involved in a very diverse roster of collaborations with such important artists as Guru Guru, members of Can as well as French space rock groups (“Les Rockets” and “Visitors”). The tracks that make up this compilation were selected from the aforementioned solo records. Ranging from straight out cosmic disco to propulsive proggy funk to the unclassifiable, this collection is a perfect representation of his solo work. Standout tracks include the cosmic burner “Held It”, the total vocoder/space jam “Musik, Music, Musique” and the amazing interpretation of Beatle’s “Drive My Car” complete with vocal by Gina Kikoine herself (Gina X).   This collection will appeal to fans of the synth/vocoder work and unmistakable razor sharp production of Gina X Performance as well as fans of left-field synth heavy prog and disco (a more rock based Moroder if you will). Specially remastered for this vinyl reissue. Presented on high-quality 180gram colored vinyl.
