Yankee act on Factory, halfway between Throbbing Gristle and Be Music … For an introduction, check the 1980-82 Collectedcd on Acute (ACT008, 2006) which features quite a bit of unreleased work from 1981-1982.

wyatt’s way

Robert-wyatt-nothing-can-stop-RobertwyattnothingcanstopusP01252Nothing_can_stopRobert_wyatt_nothing_can_stop_

O TannenbaumWyatt’s way ;-) Recorded Summer 1981, released 1982-03 on Nothing Can Stop Us(Rough Trade) … Robert Wyatt also wrote the liner notes for a 1991 compilation of ‘7Ts piano pieces by Cornelius Cardew which featured Red flag prelude(197X). Hey and can someone please add Mr. Wyatt‘s interpretation to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O_Tannenbaum ?!? [Nope ain’t gonna do it myself.]

swiss starter

From Switzerland / Svizzera / la Suisse / die Schweiz: it’s Starter! Their (untitled) debut lp (recorded in Bern in 1981) has just been reprinted by Dark Entries (who have a very impractical site), cat. no. DE-016. Should you buy their reissue, see to it you get the A4 inlay ànd the badge too. Main reasons for purchase: “Lunapark” by the original Francis Foss + Claudine Chirac + Jet Harbour line-up, and the lone bonus track by the Foss & Gray duo Victim(1985) … plus the interview below, perhaps. Also, I’m guessing Starter’s “Tanger” (co-written by Stephan Eicher) is where current Swiss act What’s Wrong With Us? got their name from … (Curious for thèir new albumNot Enough“, incidentally.)

reiss’ you

You1979aYou1979bYou1981c

The first two albums of YouElectric Day(Cain 1979) and Time Code(Rock City 1983) – have been reissued by Bureau B, both on lp and cd – with extra tracks on the latter format only – you can hear two of the six below. Sadly You‘s Scanner12″ (on black vinyl! Cain 1981) has been overlooked as a possible source for such bonus bonanza.
