I think you have a chip on your shoulder because Mort Garson's Satanic analogue jamz are way sweeter...

fyi, this kind of slipped by me, but Haackula was released in June
Bruce haack's 'haackula' is the record you've dreamt of and the stuff of nightmares. Deemed to be too dark and too offensive for release when it was recorded in 1978, it has languished unheard in the vault ever since. With it's premiere release here it will soon be revered as a lost classic of outsider electronica. Haack's anger with a society he sees as too straight and too claustrophobic is palpable as he hisses and cusses his way over astoundingly elastic electro backings. Already respected as one of the pioneers of twentieth century electronic music, haackula strikes out on this disc into dark, yet playful territory where few have gone before. Imagine a very, very bummed out kraftwerk scowling as they play childlike melodies and sing under their breath of fear and abandonment. One listen to haackula's "blow job" is sure to change the way you view electronic music forever. As well as the full haackula album for the first time this release also features haack's extraordinary 1982 collaboration with russell simmons (def jam/public enemy/beastie boys) 'party machine' and the incredible 32 minute (!) 1979 soundscape composition 'icarus'. All tracks make their first official release here and are lovingly remastered from the original tapes. Often bootleged, (incomplete with an incorrect track-list and much inferior sound quality may we add!) The dark jewel that is haackula now sees the light of day in this deluxe premiere edition. Strap in, and let haackula sink its teeth into you!
I haven't bought it yet, but I will

"Child Psychologist" is just as terrifying and weird and awesome as anything Throbbing Gristle ever did

oh man I got haackula and Blow Job is the funniest shit I've heard in a while. The sound on the whole album is pretty great, but that one track is just so smooth its ridiculous. I don't know why, but whenever I listen to haack I'm reminded of Gary Wilson, both dudes creep me out in the same way maybe.

haack was gay? the liner notes to electric lucifer reference two "partners" (ted pandel and chris kachulis) but it's unclear whether that was a working relationship or a romantic one.

Discover the guy's old synth work through a thread in a Norwegian Facebook group. Incredible to think that he was actually <i>pre</i> Moog!
