RELEASED – CREEPING BENT ORGANISATION – 15TH
NEW VIDEO SHARE – ‘LOST IN AN EIDERDOWN’ –
After nearly twenty years since the record’s conception, The
Creeping Bent Organisation is delighted to announce, the long awaited
release of the debut album by Lancashire hotpots Transelement.
To coincide, the band have shared lead single ‘Lost In An
Eiderdown’ which is accompanied by a startling video that recalls
the quirky joy and beauty created by Oliver Postgate and Vernon
Elliot, albeit delivered from the mushroom laden fields of rural
‘Rural Tunings’, recorded in 2001 and
scheduled to be released on Creeping Bent that year, features fourteen
genre defying tracks by a band of teenage pop visionaries that were
described by the late great John Peel as simply “weird”. A huge
admirer of the band, the celebrated DJ invited Transelement into the
BBC studios in Maida Vale to record two separate sessions in the space
of a few months for broadcast on his show.
01. ‘Marlybourne Rusk’
02. ‘Booda Fly’
04. ‘Lost In An Eiderdown’
‘Bone Marrow Winky’
06. ‘Crackt Ol’ Cupboard’

12. ‘Past Twelve Theme Tune’
Formed in school by Jay
Stansfield and Karl Eden (vocals / guitars / synths) and Mark
Tattersall (drums / machines / tapes), they started scraping together
aural weirdness on a broken 4 track tape machine, which resulted in an
experimental approach to making skewed pop. The trio went several name
mutations, but in the late 1990’s they were called Element and sent
a hand-coloured designed cassette through the letterbox of Douglas
MacIntryre at Creeping Bent H.Q. in Mount Florida, Glasgow which at
the time boasted a roster of Alan Vega & Revolutionary Corps of
Teenage Jesus, The Leopards, The Nectarine No9, The Secret Goldfish,
and Adventures in Stereo.

“We were really too busy with the artists we were
already working with to sign anyone as we were receiving considerable
attention and all of our groups were recording BBC Radio 1 Peel
However, Transelement got their pop hooks in me and
it was agreed a track would be released on the Creeping Bent Singles
Club. The track ‘Lord Aparts’ was immediately picked up by Peel
and other turned-on members of the media. My craving could not be
satisfied and it was decided to release a mini-album, ‘Sour
Blaster’, which started connecting with a growing audience of
weirdoids. The group were assembling and amassing a considerable
number of songs all recorded on their faulty 4 track machine. An album
was scheduled for release by us in 2001, but sadly was never released
for various reasons too abstract to deconstruct here. It is
undoubtably one of my favourite Creeping Bent releases so I’m

"The Exorcism" revolves around
the intoxication of lust; that overwhelming desire for someone to the
extent that it feels you could be possessed. The term “exorcism”
here, is very much a euphemism. Musically we wanted to draw on
influences such as Suspiria, focussing on dance synths rather than our
more usual sounds. We wanted something that was suitably hard-hitting,
but could also get the dance floor moving.

HER DESPAIR began as a

music with the accessibility of punk and the stylings of heavy metal,
the project has subsequently evolved into the current full

For More Information:
Three years after releasing Sizike–U Zemlji Čuda With Lost DATA Tracks LP (featuring 6 songs from their original 1985 album U Zemlji Cuda, and 6 previously unreleased recordings of group DATA from 1981-1984 period), we discovered another amazing archive: Night Club 1985-86 LP, recorded for international market by the oddball queens Sizike and their leaders Zoran Vracevic and Zoran Jevtic!
Sizike–Night Club 1985-1986 is a collection of 9 previously unpublished italo-disco, Hi-NRG, synthpop tracks. As in our previous Sizike release, fans of the 80’s sound & gear will relish the authentic 808 beats, vocoded rap and vocals, Pro-One signatures and hand-tweaked analog FX. Moreover, they will be meet with a good old song structuring, nearly 2-minute-long intros and plenty of instrumental parts between verses, making many tracks sound like remixes rather than Sizike’s typical tunes. All vocals are sung in a witty, cheeky girls style, with lyrics in English emphasizing fun and having good time.
A-side begins with Sizike’s best known song: Don’t Stop!, but in a significantly different arrangement. Compared to its previous version, with lyrics in Serbian, this track sounds more raw, unpolished and dusty, with a remarkable groove. If you liked the original Don’t Stop!, this one you will simply adore! The next song, Be My Lover, introduces a more italo-disco feeling to the record. Vintage string riffs, naive and predictable harmonies, cheesy lyrics and vocals, flavored with Simmons toms and vocoded rap. No opportunity is lost in the catchy Live With A Lie, which surely should’ve been on Italo charts back then. A-side closes with the song simply called 1,2,3,4, its high tempo octave bass delivering intense energy and vibe that will drive your feet to dance.
B-side features a really special opener: Soldier Boy is a mid-tempo, italo-synth-pop pearl, brilliantly composed and structured (intro lasts 1:21 min), showcasing the irresistible Roland System 100M, punchy LinnDrum and ripping synth bass. Her, the vocals sound more advanced and its lyrics shun the overall light-hearted premise found in Hi-NRG Love All Around, Too Shy For You and, to some extent, I Can’t Stand. However, the top track of the album comes at the very end: Night Club unifies the musical endeavors two Zorans were developing throughout the album in an almost perfect way. The song structure is broad but not too extensive, the harmonies and melodies simple yet exciting and while the singing is relaxed but convincing, the lyrics are clear and evocative. The combination of instruments optimal without overwhelming the whole expression, yet we must point out the fantastic, pulsing Pro-One bass, hypnotic synth riffs of Korg Mono/Poly, warm string pads of Juno 106, and more…
Ultimately, Sizike–Night Club 1985-86 LP brings a fresh sparkle to the old gold. It is not just a testimony to the lost music, it is a juxtaposition of one unjustified musical negligence. It is hard to understand how these songs were not a part of Italo-disco charts during the ’80s and it is even harder to understand why none of them were
published. Surely, if Den Harrow, Bananarama, Tom Tom Club, Baby’s Gang could successfully top the charts in those days, then one Italo-disco-inspired group from Yugoslavia should’ve at least had a record! Well, we believe it is never too late for good music… even if it’s brought out 33 years later!
