This wonderful print version of Electronic Sound is now available here and includes an interview with me and many luminaries of the electronic music world about the early days of this type of music in the UK and the new Cherry Red Records 4-CD compilation ‘Close to the Noise Floor’. It’s beautifully produced and has a huge number of features about gear and people involved in all areas of electronics in music.
Promo from the release’s FB page ‘We’re delighted to announce CTTNF will be released on April 29th. 4CDs of ‘Proto-Synth Pop, DIY Techno and Ambient Exploration’, accompanied by over 9,000 words of artist recollections, sleeve notes and an introductory essay by Dave Henderson. Coming to a record shop near you, or directly from Cherry Red Records’. Here you can see the press release with full band list CLOSE TO THE NOISE FLOOR PRESS RELEASE
An interview with Andrew Lagowski/S.E.T.I., conducted by Mike Harding of Touch, was broadcast on Dublab Radio on January 8th 2016 (2-4pm L.A. time) Long Wave. The interview includes an hour long S.E.T.I. mix and also custom made S.E.T.I. interstitials as well as a potted history of how and why Andrew Lagowski got into music and sound making, including Nagamatzu’s origins…You can listen and download it here
As I sit here in the bunker near Heathrow Airport, tin foil hat on to protect me from David Icke’s reptiles and remote control ‘planes, I receive news from my Polish brothers at Zoharum that the new Nagamatzu double CD ‘Neural Interval’ has hit the streets. You can hear some of the tracks and buy the CD’s or digital versions here. It’s limited to 300 copies, so get moving if you’re into this stuff!
Also in the pipeline, my other brothers in Leipzig, those of the Loki Foundation, plan to re-release my S.E.T.I. album ‘The Geometry of Night’. This will not be a simple re-issue. Rather, it will be accompanied by a new ambient sister album entitled ‘Companion’.
As alluded to in my last missive, Andrea Bellucci has been patiently waiting while our bunker had its rebuild and I am now back on track working on our joint album.
Finally, Astro Myrmex will be presenting his data logs in the next few months. I’ll keep any interested parties informed via this site as, although my Facebook band pages still exist, I no longer use the site myself. The Lagowski and S.E.T.I. pages are run by my Polish and German brothers mentioned above, while the Nagamatzu page is run by Stephen Jarvis of Nagamatzu/VII Sins/Motorcade Records.
Here there is info about how Dark Entries’ 4th anniversary is being celebrated with (amongst other things) our 30th anniversary re-issue!
This week we release our self-produced RED vinyl re-issue of ‘Igniting the Corpse’ which was originally on cassette only! The first 150 copies include a free screen print by VII Sins and there are three different prints. You can buy direct from the Motorcade Records site and also from Lagowski @ Discogs and if you buy the vinyl you get a free download code for the album included!
It seems that I’ve been busier than I realised lately. The first of the projects was two remixes for Maciek Szymczuk for his ‘Cloud Watching’ release. More info to be found here. I have also done two remixes for Attrition which are available for a limited time as detailed here.
As part of a relatively small campaign to publicise the Legion ‘False Dawn’ 20th Anniversary edition, there is an interview published in the Polish ‘Hard Art’ magazine which will soon be available from Zoharum at this link.
While we’re on the Legion tip, my re-release of Legion’s ‘Leviathan’ is now available for a very reasonable fee from my Bandcamp page here. The download-only release includes three previously unreleased/new tracks, photographs and a MIDI file from the original session for you to play with.
The re-issue of Nagamatzu’s ‘Igniting the Corpse’ album on vinyl as a very limited run, will soon see the light of day. It will have very special hand screen-printed works by Stephen Jarvis (VII Sins) for the first bunch of lucky customers. More details here and on the soon-to-be-open Motorcade website when they are available.
I have also begun work on the next S.E.T.I. projects too. One will be vinyl only entitled ‘Final Trajectory’, one will be a CD for LOKI and the other will be a 24+ hour live stream. I have also been asked to do something for Touch Radio, which I will endeavour to accomplish in the next couple of months. Large dish arrays of the UK – watch out for the S.E.T.I. mobile studio to arrive on your doorstep momentarily!
Finally, my collaborative project with a secret partner will also soon see the light/dark of day. We’ve been ‘hard at it’, as they say, over the last year – sending samples, files and mixes over the internet and producing something truly deep and cinematic. You’re going to love it 😉
