CHRIS & COSEY – Heartbeat (CTI)    LP 150g / Blue Vinyl 21,50 (price to be confirmed)

‘Heartbeat’ is the first in the series of four limited-edition vinyl re-releases from the esteemed Chris & Cosey catalogue.
Originally released to much acclaimed in 1981 by Rough Trade ‘Heartbeat’ was the first in a long line of groundbreaking albums by Chris Carter & Cosey Fanni Tutti.
This early example of C&C features cut-up sampled voices, Cosey’s disto-guitar, Industrial sequences, melodious synths and cinematic sweeps.
“There are moments of great beauty like ‘Moorby’ and, equally, many moments of sheer depravity all performed

with Kraftwerk’s cultured class and the hypnotic charm and deadly grace of a synthesised cobra.”
Steve Sutherland Melody Maker 1982
“All the world loves a love story… but ‘Heartbeat’ still has an edge of evil among the extensions of the pair’s established scenarios.”
Sandy Robertson – Sounds 1981

CHRIS & COSEY – Trance (CTI)    LP 150g / Dark Grey Vinyl 21,50 (price to be confirmed)

‘Trance’ is the second in the series of four limited-edition Chris & Cosey vinyl re-releases.

This seminal album, a long time favourites with DJs and fans alike, is often cited by many electronic musicians as being influential in contemporary electronic music.
Primarily an instrumental album ‘Trance’ covers everything from minimal electro and polyrhythmic sequences to rhythm heavy dance tracks.
”High-tech sequencer dazzles mix with heavy stews of sound, teasing atmospheric pieces with abrasive disco forgeries”
John Gill – Time Out 1982
“No one else currently turning out commercial music has anywhere near Chris and Cosey’s intuitive grasp of the stimulating possibilities of electronic rhythm.
Trance is just what it claims to be: a mesmerising chance to reassess the suggestive potential of sound,

which in turn, attempts to intoxicate the listener into a reinvestigation of surrounding environments.”
Steve Sutherland – Melody Maker 1982 Side

:: COMING SOON AT THE CAFE ::

OECD 134 M.B. [Maurizio Bianchi] + [Peter Andersson / Henrik Nordvargr Björkk / Erik Jarl] – S.F.A.G. / S.F.A.G. De-Composed 2xCD Digifile 18,-

Release date October 2011

ANTE-FACTS :
after the disintegrative period of my production (from “Symphony for a Genocide” to “Das Testament”),

the purchase of a misanthropic echo-machine and the consequent decay of the electric-analogue machinery,

my efforts was redirected to a pre-recording sound sublimation, so I started to re-compose the electronic metastasis of early times,

filtering through dehumanizing effects of the echo-machine, keeping attention particularly to the explanatory process of my ancestral subjectivism.
FACTS :
the modulatory shaking of S.F.A.G is the oxygenating prelude to the irradiating bionic music later developed through levigating works such as “Endometrio” and “Carcinosi”

and represents a milestone in my pre-apocalyptic production which later will culminate into the horrid of “Armaghedon”.

The exegesis of this work reflects a strong attachment to smooth and round effects of the roughness of the frantic early days,

but with a constant preference for the symbiosis between well pre-ordered sound masses and not well defined radio broadcasts,

like nebulae drifting in a space in trembling condensation.
POST-FACTS:
The interest of Gary Mundy of the British “Broken Flag” label (who later would have released the esoteric “The Plain Truth”)

gave me the incentive to make him listen to the demo tape which was of his liking so that in January 1983

he decided to publish the album as a tape with the title “SFAG 1981” (the year relates to the link with the date of the beginning of my vinyl production).

In the early 90’s Tegal Records was releasing a non-authorised “truncated” version on CD,

but this new version of OEC maintains the integrity of the entire work and was completely digitally remastered by Peter Andersson (Raison D’être)

[Maurizio Bianchi]

The Original album is accompanied by a second CD with 3 de-compositions using extracts of the original S.F.A.G. recordings

done by 3 well knows Nordic industrial artists :
Peter Andersson [Raison D’Être]
Henrik Nordvargr Björkk [MZ.412]
Erik Jarl [IRM]

OECD 135 PETER ANDERSSON (Raison D’Etre) – Music for Film and Exhibition II CD Digipak  13,-

Release date October 2011

Like baking a sweet cake or cooking an indian dish you need good ingredients and spices to get the right mouthfeel and the splendid flavor of your desire.
‘Music for Film and Exhibition II’ is just like that: a levelled declitre of raison d’être, a brimful tablespoon of Atomine Elektrine,

a couple of teaspoons of Necrophorus and a little bit of this and little bit of that, mixed into a perfect blend of many tastes.
Peter Andersson, well-known from projects like Raison d’être, Stratvm Terror, Necrophorus and Atomine Elektrine,

shows here broad spectrum of sonic atmospheres, like if all of his different music projects were combined into one.
From ambient-drone-textures and electronic chill-out to concrete sounds to even pure atmopsheric piano tunes.

‘Music for Film and Exhibition II’ is the sequel of ‘Music for Film and Exhibition’ (Yantra Atmospheres, 2007).
While the previous output contains collected works from different exhibition projects and movies spanning from 1999-2005,

this sequel is focused on one single project; an exhibition.
Peter Andersson has lately worked as a media producer at Swedish Air Force Museum and being involved with their new large permanent exhibiton about the Cold War.
Within this project Peter has worked with sound design and movie production in particular.
The sonic results are presented on ‘Music for Film and Exhibition II’.
Some of the tunes are used as soundtrack for exhibition movies while the main part are sonic atmospheres and soundscapes to create the ambience of the exhibition rooms.
The music is presented here as stand alone productions, displaced from its original context.
To fully experience the music in its environmental Raison d’être there is no other way but to travel to the Swedish Air Force Museum.

Until then, you may enjoy the music on its own.
The CD comes in a six panel digipak covered with beautiful Sunset painting by italian artist Christian Montagna/FLOODSart.

For same samples go here :

http://www.oldeuropacafe.com/main.php?nav=pd&prdct=10127
Tracklist:
– Agnus Dei
– Sarkophagos
– Piano Movements 1 – 8

– The Last Journey
– In Suspense

Release date October 2011

New material from this French master of Industrial, this is the fourth release by Nocturne on OEC.

cold and freezing voids mutating into hot layers of concrete, far sampled voices… and much more …
A very homogeneous work in perfect Nocturne style.

OECD 137 FOLKSTORM – The Forgotten Tapes [Archive 5]     CD Jewel-Box  13,-

Uncompromising and best power-electronics Industrial as we are used by this primer Nordvargr side project.

OECD 138 MUERAN HUMANOS – S/T CD Jewel-Box  13,-

Release date November 2011

Mueran Humanos is a great new project from Argentina (from Argentum, latin for silver).
Silver kills werewolves, and sometimes vampires too, but also the material of which the knives wielded at satanic masses are forged,

echoes we say, echoes that spread across the authoritarian landscapes of Possession-era Berlin (Berlin, the city where Mueren Humanos are now living)

like ink stolen from an apocryphal sequel of the house of leaves, now set in pock-marked concrete whence mouths stretch agape frozen in a silent shout.
Mueran Humanos’ seductive dirge sounds like the missing link between La Dusseldorf and a female singing “Suicide” performing a macabre tango,

like black raven wings spreading from a shadowy corner in your messy bedroom, dark bliss palpitates alluring hidden inside a shroud of cobwebs.
A band for days of torrential rain and wind whistling malevolent against the rattling windows of the decaying Victorian manor where we dwell despondent.
A funereal march across the long empty corridors of a Berlin apartment where time and space

stretch supernatural like the shadows hiding Catherine Deneuve’s nightmares in Repulsion.
Surrealist hallucinations, cruel razorblades slide shiny eyeballs, not nice, but beautiful.
This debut album will surprise you all, don’t miss it !

OECD 141 K11 – The Sacred Wood CD Jewel-Box  13,-

Release date November 2011

K11 (aka Pietro Riparbelli) can be compared and in our opinion is the new Bad Sector.
Sound sources and intents are different but the end results are ending in a very similar sound layer.
The sound soursces for this album was recorded at the enchanting park of Monsters of Bomarzo.
The park of Monsters of Bomarzo was devised by the architect Pirro Ligorio (he completed the Cathedral of Saint Peter in Rome after the death of Michelangelo and built Villa d’Este in Tivoli)

on commission of Prince Pier Francesco Orsini, called Vicino, only to vent the heart broken at the death of is wife Giulia Farnese.
The park was born in 1552 as “Villa of Wonders” to be the only one of it’s kind in the world.
Incredible but true, the Park of Monsters remained in complete oblivion till 1954 and only few people was aware about all the fantastic treasures contained within the park for over 400 years !
K11 was recording the soul of this park of Monsters and Wonders and after re-working the sounds he delivers us a trip between reality and dream.
Psychadelic, ritual ambient music from an other space, from an other era, from an other land…

OECD 136 ROSA RUBEA – (Title to be announced) Mini CD PTBA

OECD 140 XX CENTURY ZORRO – La Volpe du XX Siecle CD Digipak 13,-

Cult project of the Italian 80’s underground !
This is the first re-edition of this masterpiece into digital format.
Like Frank Sinatra dancing a tango with Nico …!?
Broken melodies full of nostalgia, dandy and gigolo fascination, B/W sounds, pre and after world war songs,
music for an other era which will probably never come …
The weltanschauung of XXCZ is simply formidable and incomparable to anybody and anything, a unique experience out of time.
The disc was completely released with a special system called “MonSter” which was never re-used after this production by anybody else.
[NB : Frater Rudolf (Rudy) was one of the band members …]
