Hi all,
We thought we would brighten up your upcoming holidays by announcing we have some exciting treats for you around Jan 27…

1/27 New titles:

MR-063 Monopol “Weltweit” LP. Co-release with Anna Logue Records!
MR-066 Martial Canterel “Navigations Volume II” LP
MR-067 Martial Canterel “Navigations Volume III” LP
MR-068 Martial Canterel “Navigations Volume I-III” Special 3LP gatefold pack!

Here are the descriptions/links/covers:

MR-063 Monopol “Weltweit” LP  $19

Medical Records collaborates with their good friends Anna Logue across the pond in Germany to present the long out of print Neu Deutsche Welle cult classic album Weltweit by Monopol. Released in 1982, Weltweit was the sole output of the band. It has appropriately become quite rare and difficult to find with the resulting high prices to obtain an original copy. Inspired by the greats such as Kraftwerk, YMO and Klaus Schulze, the three members crafted an exquisite collection of pop songs played on a very impressive collection of analog synthesizers, self-builds and drum machines that were considered cutting edge at the time. The band would have recorded a second album but split up before that was possible. Members of the band continued to be involved in the music industry at least peripherally but didn’t participate in further collaborations or bands. Also interestingly, Monopol was basically a studio-only project and actually never played live (despite some TV appearances). The album has been remastered by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK. Contains a special bonus insert with lyrics and photos. Definitely a must-have for fans of NDW such as Grauzone, Reingold and the like.  Presented on high quality 180gram classic black vinyl.  Limited edition.

MR-066 Martial Canterel “Navigations Volume II” LP $19

Medical Records proudly presents Volume II of a collection of “Forgotten Tracks, Sketches and Unfinished Work 2002-2004” by Martial Canterel.  This release coincides as a standalone with Medical’s other releases of Volume III as well as a special 3LP compiling Volumes I-III. Sean McBride has been producing work under the Martial Canterel moniker dating back to 2002 as well as working as half of Xeno And Oaklander. These tracks capture the allure and depth of Sean’s early work exploring rhythms and perfectly crafted pop songs using a very early incarnation of limited instrumentation. Fans of Martial Canterel’s early work (think “Austerton” and “Sister Age”) will be instantly elated. This is the first time these tracks have been released on vinyl and have been remastered for this release by Martin Bowes at the Cage, UK. Contains special bonus insert with lyrics.  Fans of early Martial Canterel as well as other cold wave icons such as A Blaze Color, Snowy Red, and the like will need this collection. Presented on high-quality 180gram classic vinyl.

NAAAHHH – THEMES 12″
OUT JANUARY 20, 2017 ON BLACKEST EVER BLACK
LISTEN TO “NECK DEVOUR” HERE
PRE-ORDER HERE
Sidereal downers for all hardcore ravers.

Five tracks of darkside slither from somewhere under London.

The dread energy of grime and bleep techno distilled into pungent electro-acoustic ooze.

Paranoid street music meets the cosmic disturbances of musique concrète,
the MDMA spine-freeze of isolationism and England’s hidden reverse.

Staccato string stabs, murmured voices, black holes of reverb and pulverising, body-numbing bass.

Drums optional.

Unwanted side-effects include nosebleeds, earaches, stomach cramps, and nausea. Just say naaahhh.

LISTEN: NAAAHHH – ‘Neck Devour’

Sutcliffe Jugend
“Shame” Cd

PRE-ORDERS ARE OPEN NOW!

Experimental Industrial music legends of thirty five years Sutcliffe Jugend follow ‘Offal’ with the more introspective and intense ‘Shame’. Presented in a 6pp Digipak cover featuring new artwork by Kevin Tomkins.
The superbly produced album begins with the title track which builds on a heavy riff to an intense climax, as the passion and emotion reaches breaking point.
A new Shame is faced with each track, ‘Sledge’ goads those who compromise their art for acceptance, ‘Hurts’ sucks you into a world of domestic hell while the brutal ‘Bait’ is the closest SJ have ever come to a traditional rock song before the listener is drowned in thirteen minutes of ‘Blood’.
Sutcliffe Jugend continue their personal journey without compromise, creating an album of purity, violent beauty and Shame.

Shame (13:03)
Sledge (6:20)
Hurts (7:22)
Bait (8:58)
Blood (13:43)

Kevin Tomkins: Vocals, Synthesizer, Sample Keyboard, Autoharp and Guitar
