MR-019 Near Paris “S/T”
Medical Records in collaboration with Crispy Nuggets blog (http://crispynuggets.blogspot.com) is proud to present a compilation/reissue of the rare 4 song EP by Near Paris released in 1985 + 7 unreleased/unheard songs recorded during the same time.  Near Paris hailed from Columbus, Ohio and was composed of Gerald F. Nelson and Dana Riashi.  Gerald and Dana (in addition to Robert Crise) had previously made up the band Post Industrial Noise before they disbanded in 1983.  By 1985, Near Paris were quite popular in the Columbus music scene and had opened for such bands as Section 25.  They made a name for themselves as Columbus’ only synth-driven pop duo and even won several local awards.  They often played in art galleries as well as worked on original scores for local dance troupes and other art-related endeavors.  They band released one long out of print 12” EP which is included on this LP.  The EP contains excellent new wave tracks such as “Visions” and “Ceiling” The 7 unreleased tracks (hand-picked by Gerald and Dana) follow the same style of deep/moody club-based synthpop and were culled from cassettes which were restored and remastered specially for this vinyl release with outstanding end results.   Other standout tracks from the unreleased numbers include “Walk Like A Man” and “Everything Will Change”.  Sadly, just prior to completion of this project, Gerald passed away in October of 2012.  This LP will appeal to fans of early/mid 80s synth/new wave.  Presented on 180gram oxblood opaque high-quality vinyl in a limited edition of 650 copies.  Bonus insert included as well with bio/pics of Near Paris and memorial to late member Gerald F. Nelson.

MR-020 I Signori Della Galassia “Iceman”
Medical Records presents a reissue of the very rare and sought after 1979 opus by Italy’s I Signori Della Galassia.  “Iceman” was released in 1979 and has been long out of print for over 30 years fetching very high prices on the collector’s market.  I Signori Della Galassia (translated as The Men Of Galaxy) is best described as a sonic hybrid of space disco/cosmic meets Italian progressive pop/rock.  They were founded in Savona in the late 70s.  Played with analog gear such as a variety of synthesizers as well as traditional guitar and drums.  It is a very rich and diverse LP with multiple interesting twists and turns.  The opener “Proxima Centauri” is a space disco odyssey with super-catchy synth melodies over driving disco beats mixed with hypnotic passages.  The title track “Iceman” is a fusion of Italian pop and space disco which makes for an interesting combination.  Other tracks have a completely different feel with elements of prog and experimental rock overtones.  “Archeopterix” is another standout track with washing synths, warbling filters, and gentle backing vocals. The LP contains two bonus tracks (at the end of each side) which were released as singles at the time (“Luce” and “Eliane”).  The LP features preserved front cover artwork and slightly modified back cover original artwork (at the artist’s request).  This LP will surely appeal to lovers of Space, Rockets, Kraftwerk, Milkways, and Zodiac. Presented on 180gram silver opaque high-quality vinyl in a limited edition of 650 copies.
