the Tietchens box set on VOD is so worth it. White vinyl as well = double worth it

i need a way to steal the Broken Flax box though, and the M.B. one

Yeah, it all looks so good. I am partially starting this thread because I got a subscription to the 2008 "Industrial" series. I plan on bumping it with effusive praise throughout the year as my impossibly deluxe box sets arrive. I mean seriously, a SIX ALBUM SPK box? A five-LP Etant Donnes set? Four LPs and a DVD from Nocturnal Emissions? A Hermann Nitsch triple LP? Only four of my fave 80's noise acts ever...

I also talked up the fantastic Legendary Pink Dots box on a separate thread, really good reissues of really rare cassettes.

It's like the Bear Family for people in leather pants. and very cool! only i'm not rich :(

scott seward, Thursday, 7 February 2008 00:15 (twelve years ago) link

ha, yeah, even with a subscription I am still paying approx. $20 per LP once postage and the exchange rate get factored in. I couldn't really afford it but given the lineup I had no choice.

sleeve, Thursday, 7 February 2008 00:20 (twelve years ago) link

the record cover archive is friggin' amazing. kudos for that alone:

scott seward, Thursday, 7 February 2008 00:21 (twelve years ago) link

Whenever we get a shipment of these, there's usually two or three that I'm ultra tempted to buy. I have never bought one of their boxes! I came close with Broken Flag & the Tietchen's one as well.

ian, Thursday, 7 February 2008 00:24 (twelve years ago) link

That E.G. Oblique graph 2LP, that's a real winner. And those Die Todliche Doris LPs, now probably out of print.

ian, Thursday, 7 February 2008 00:25 (twelve years ago) link

I think this could be part of a larger discussion about subscription labels as a new business model for niche bands. This came up on an Einsturzende Neubauten thread because they are engaged in similar subscription programs.

xpost to ian yeah all that early EG Oblique and Muslimgauze stuff rules.

I have never heard Die Todliche Doris :( Must rectify.

shocked at the lack of interest in this thread.

A lot of the more New Order/Depeche Mode sounding "minimal synth" stuff doesn't impress me much. Never been a big fan of that aesthetic, really. There are exceptions; a band like the Pink Dots really kind of transcends being tagged as "coldwave" or whatever, and their box is really quite good. I'm normally kind of skeptical of the Dots, but the stuff on that box that leans towards the more ambient is really something, and even the vocal passages don't grate as much as they do on some of their records. I think my problem with the Pink Dots is that they just have so many records out, plus all the Ka-Spel solo records. I'd probably like a good chunk of it, but it's such a big discography and the records are uncommon enough (CDs easy enough to find, i guess..) that I don't have the patience to dig through it all.

I really like the Storm Bugs single LP they put out last year; that and the Storm Bugs disc on Fusetron are both really excellent; they were another band who transcended a genre, being more concerned with the method and creation behind each individual piece than being a band with a "sound." Good interview with main storm bug guy in the newest issue of Sound Projector, too.

ian, Thursday, 7 February 2008 15:18 (twelve years ago) link

please allow me to vomit at my overuse of the word "really."

ian, Thursday, 7 February 2008 15:20 (twelve years ago) link

afaik that Storm Bugs is available as an MP3 from the VOD site.

I am with you about all the cold wave minimal synth stuff, I don't think it has aged very well. I did recently hear ADN Krystal (who are on the 2008 schedule) and I liked that quite a bit.

As far as Ka-Spel, Pink Dots, etc, yeah they were always a different beast.

Some quick LPD recommendations: Asylum, Chemical Playschool 3/4 or 8/9 (either), Faces In The Fire.

sleeve, Thursday, 7 February 2008 15:44 (twelve years ago) link

Lots of stuff on here by people who I've meant to check out, but never quite got round to. Legendary Pink Dots, in particular. They seem a real love 'em or hate 'em proposition. Anyone see the letter from Ka-Spel in the Wire this month after one of the reviewers shat on one of the recent Pink Dots compilations? Suprisingly, that was the first ever mention of them in the mag.

Anyway, I'm hunting around for the best price on the Asmus Tietchens set right now, but I'd also like to hear the Snatch Tapes, Cultural Amnesia and The Naughtiest Girl was a Monitor...

gnarly sceptre, Thursday, 7 February 2008 16:26 (twelve years ago) link

the 5-LP Severed Heads box (scheduled for 2008) also looks quite interesting.

Only one of the 2008 Industrial releases I don't know is that Third Door From The Left tape. I looked at their website but had never heard of them before.

sleeve, Thursday, 7 February 2008 19:59 (twelve years ago) link

i wish i got the Broken Flag box, I'll be kicking myself everyday for it

the only thing that kiiiind of bothers me about the whole VOD deal is the fact that they're all edited like crazy, no real collector's worth. When I'm nitpicking I'd rather see some good reissues, but hey...who'd care to do that?

rizzx, Thursday, 7 February 2008 20:14 (twelve years ago) link

??? not the Pink Dots, Die Todliche Doris, or Tietchens boxes, those are reissues of full cassettes. Broken Flag I can see being bits and pieces of all kinds of releases though. As far as I know the MB box also contains complete tapes.

sleeve, Thursday, 7 February 2008 20:18 (twelve years ago) link

The Broken Flag box yeah...I can't wait for the Ramleh Awake! box to come out

rizzx, Thursday, 7 February 2008 21:27 (twelve years ago) link

Just signed up for the '08 industrial set. Now i've got $35 to live off of for the next week, thx VOD. Just couldn't pass it up, last years releases were tempting, but this year they've outdone themselves. I don't see what they could possibly do in '09 to top this.

I guess now we wait... $530 poorer and wait wait wait.

are there tracklistings for the severed heads and spk? i can't seem to find them. would like to know before i buy.

Citizen, Friday, 21 March 2008 00:52 (twelve years ago) link

VOD finally updated the shop. Here's the spk info:

"Besides the official Tape-Releases such as Wars of Islam, From Science to Ritual, at The Crypt, and Last Attempt at Paradise, this Box-Set also includes Live recordings from their first concert in Sydney in 79, the Heaven Concert London in 80, the Brickwerkz-Concert in 82, the SO36 Concert in Berlin plus a few more live-documents. Members will recieve their edition with a limited 3x7“wooden Box-Set containing their first 3 Side Effect 7“ from 1979 plus a Post-card-Set with photographies by SPK-Member Sinan Revell"

Interesting. can't wait to see the box and shirt. Unless someone beats me to it i'll probably do the discogs entry and take a bunch of pictures.

Citizen, Wednesday, 26 March 2008 16:04 (twelve years ago) link

it's the 3x7" box that would clinch it for me but sadly i have missed this ear's membership allocation.

sinan revell = swoon! i have been in awe of her since i saw them in '84.

stirmonster, you can generally get the subscription extras on an individual basis as a non-subscriber if you get in early (at a small extra cost). you should email the label.

rizzx, Sunday, 25 May 2008 09:50 (twelve years ago) link


hi folks! this thread is gonna be a lot quieter without ian :(

Stir feel free to email me, I am a little unclear on how it'll work with VOD but it says that 250 copies of the singles box are for distribution. I'll email Frank and ask him. I think you have to buy the whole 6LP box to get it though.

the box does not include From Science To Ritual, all material is live. It DOES have the complete Last Attempt At Paradise tape and (I think) all of the Crypt tape. Only some of the Al's Bar gig. The box is huge and imposing. Large glossy book with a lotta amazing photos, essays, and discography/gigography for the era. The singles come with exact replicas of the original covers as inner sleeves and a VOD design with SPK graphics for the outer sleeves. I can't fit everything into the small wooden box so I had to leave the outer sleeves in the big box.

An unannounced bonus - a small black box called DoppelgANGER by Sinan Revell, containing a series (maybe 40) of glossy photos some of which she appears to have taken, some definitely not. Some are disturbing and they definitely make a point.

Also, a T-shirt.

I wonder who they have do their mastering - these are the only records I've ever head that fit 32-33 minutes on a side and don't sound like shit towards the end.

Haven't dived into the Gerechtigkeits Liga 2LP beyond a couple of tracks.

sleeve, Sunday, 25 May 2008 15:59 (twelve years ago) link

oh now I see the photo box was announced, I missed that before.

VOD 53: Etant Donnes Tapes 1977-1983 6-Lp-leather-Box with DVD 87,99 €

The Box provides all of Etant Donnes avantgarde-tapes released between 1977 and 1983 on the famous french BainTotal-Label Recordings include in specific: LA VUE, L’OPPOSITION, L'ETOILE AU FRONT, CEUX QU'ON AIME - CE QUE JE HAIS , CINQ PORTES SOUDEES, LES CENTS JOURS CLAIRS. The release also contains a DVD with Live-Peformances of Etant Donnes of the last 3 decades. The music of this Etant Donnés’s first period (1977/1983) boxset describes a rite of passage from mortality to divinity ,a powerful but hidden passion craving beauty and burning love that can be conquered only by another form of secret pain ,that of losing yourself in the cosmos and becoming part of the muddy streams of distant stars .Their soundworks are constructed through the manipulation of natural sounds ,using the variation of velocity and intensity of the recordings ,the cutting and splicing of tape . Etant Donnes ‘s compositions are passionate and brutally communicative ,their music and words are minimalist just like the writings and chants of the religious mystics sufi ,trying to recover the virginity of the words and sounds ,they map new territories and establisch their own personal rules.These first tracks contains all the brutal collages of found sounds investigating nuances of sounds that at times verges upon silence ,the inspired and enraptured meeting with earth’s natural forces ,an hommage to the shadow of night ,to the vineyard and the golden door. In these six first vinyls Etant donnés create their own brand of total audio expression using belches and punches ,their attention is concentrated on the symphonic cacophonie organisation of disorganized found sounds ,using magical rythms only directed by cosmic rules . A perfect way of organising natural sounds that obeys to fundamental principles that everyone wishes to convey ,a music able to tear down walls and to build a universal comprehension ,a cosmic law of beauty ,a magical and alchemical act of poetry.

I don't see what they could possibly do in '09 to top this.

For the Industrial-Subscription:

Nurse With Wound (3Lp), Vidna Obmana (3Lp), Andrew Liles (3Lp),
Giancarlo Toniutti (3Lp), DDAA (4Lp), Smegma (5Lp)

for the Wave/Minimal-Subscritption: Norma Loy (1Lp), Polyphonic Size
(4Lp) Konstruktvists (1Lp). Die Form/Bain Total (5-Lp), Crash Course
in Science (3Lp), M-Squared-5Lp-Box (Systematics, Scattered Order,
Makers of Dead Travel Fast, ,

Schedule for 2010 is also set with! Programm für 2010 steht auch
schon! Sleep Chamber (4Lp), Rapoon (3Lp), Laibach (5Lp), Voice of Eye
(2Lp), Hunting Lodge (3Lp), Spanish Industrial Box (4Lp), The
Grief(2Lp), Neon (5Lp), Mark Lane(1), GermanWave Box (4Lp) & with
Portion Control (5Lp-Box)

who the hell are Neon? Looks like my bank account will be saved this time around, although the 2010 Industrial looks tasty and I like Portion Control a lot. I'm probably just going to buy the NWW set separately this next year and pass on the rest. Smegma have to be the most overrated of all these bands, I sure don't need 5 LPs worth.

sleeve, Saturday, 13 December 2008 14:19 (eleven years ago) link

also I would like to say that while the Etant Donnes box LPs were not all that great, the DVD that came with it is super, most of it from the later Touch era that I love unconditionally.

The Nocturnal Emissions is hit and miss, two great records, one poor-sound-quality LP's worth of noisy live gigs, one side of earlier Pump stuff that's OK, and one side of "outtakes" that sound much more like their later work post-Caroline K.

sleeve, Saturday, 13 December 2008 14:22 (eleven years ago) link

I have 2 Neon mp3s downloaded on those old virtual bootleg comps, New Wave Complex Vo. 4 and A Tribute to Flexipop 09. Not my favorite. The M-Squared/Australian one looks cool.

One VoD release I wish got more attention is the Campingsex album. I guess it's an outlier for the label in the sense that, however noisy it may be, it's still "just" a guitar-based post-punk record. It's great, though. Very heavy. At certain points it even reminds me of Kreator and German thrash in general, the crushing momentum of tracks like "Guten Morgen". Thurston Moore is supposedly a big fan.

The Lustmord set has their 1st album, but does not appear to include the Lustmordekay cassette at first glance, which seems weird. I don't think that stuff was on the Dark Vinyl reissue CD either.

gosh this Muslimgauze box sounds great, I have originals of some of these and they did a good job remastering (as usual).

kind of a controversial move not to include the original artwork imo, I have to assume that was a move to preserve some of the "value" of the original vinyl releases.

Robert Rich's box of early stuff sounds great, primordial drone

The stuff I've heard is nice warm post-berlin school stuff. Not all that goth/industrial but when it comes to analog electronics the lines can blur really easilly.

I'm really intrigued by this homemade new age-ish electronic stuff released on small/no labels in the early 80s. Enno Velthuys is another dude kind of in that vein, don't know if his stuff has been reissued. And K. Leimur, who has a newish anthology out on Numero group, i believe.

making a semi-public apology to Frank here for complaining about missing certificates when his mom just died. Frank, you're awesome and I was thoughtless, you can chastise me anytime. Sorry for your loss.

also, this Pierre Henry box is amazing and I can really hear the NWW influence in a lot of it (only listened to the 1st two LPs so far).

VOD142: BU/BU-MUSIKVERBREITUNG - Recordings 1980-1985
by HEUTE & DER MUSIKANT 4Lp/7inch/Booklet (ltd.400) 64,99 €

After 10 years of planning and intensive artists-convincing, a dream for many collectors of minimal/synth-music and VOD has become reality.
A Vinyl-Box with early 80’s audio formerly released only on super-rare and higly collectable Tapes or on 7inch by two of the most radical Minimal/Synth artists from South-Germany; Rolf Schobert and Georg Alfred Wittner with their projects Heute and Der Musikant (solo-project of Rolf Schobert with his name variations as Der Künftige Musikant, der Lustige Musikant, der Ewinge Musikant).
Almost 4 hours of greatest minimal/synth-based-tunes (2 Lp’s each by Heute and Der Musikant) compiled by VOD from more than 10 different early-80’s Tape-Releases, all released and distributed on their own Bu/Bu Musikverbreitung Label in the early to mid 80’s.
The Label and artists released their very own style of minimal „Präzisionsmusik“, music as unique as Minimal/Synth can only sound, standing the test of time, managing the path between the past and the future („Zwischen Gestern und Morgen“).Emotionally loaded rhythmic straight-forward tracks, with superbly schizophrenic, antagonistic and neurotic lyrics such as „Traurig-Lustig“.

VOD142.1/2 der MUSIKANT Musikantenmusik 1980-1984 2Lp (ltd.100) 25,99 €

DER MUSIKANT is Rolf Schobert from South Germany. His music from the early 80’s and his incredibly rare Tape-Releases are a must-have for every serious collector and lover of Minimal/Synth and/or NDW-Music.
His purely minimal straight-forward powerful synth-sounds in combination with his extraordinary and highy emotional vocals and are so distinct and have a unique character. Rolf is also one half of famous HEUTE together with Georg Alfred Wittner. This limited 2Lp which combines almost all this great track recorded between 80-84 can also be bought as part of a 4Lp-Set called "Bu/Bu Musikverbreitung“.

VOD142.3&/4 HEUTE Präzisionsmusik 1982-1985" 2Lp/7inch (ltd.100) 29,99 €

HEUTE is an ongoing minimal/synth-project run by Georg Alfred Wittner alias GAW and Rolf Schobert alias der Musikant. Since the beginning of the 80’s HEUTE released several remarkable and outstanding Tapes on their own Bu/Bu Musikverbreitungs-Label and on other Labels such as Biber Records, Schrott, Kassetto Fix and Intoleranz! The Latter released their classic Tape “Noch ist Polen nicht verloren from 1983. This limited 2Lp which combines almost all their great track recorded between 82-85 can also be bought as part of a 4Lp-Set called "Bu/Bu Musikverbreitung“.

VOD144: V/A Magnetophonics - Australian Underground Music 1978-1984 7Lp-Box w. large booklet 99,99 Euro (ltd.400) 99,99 €

Massive and comprehensive overview of Australian Underground Music released as Tapes/Cassettes or Vinyl between the late 70s and early to mid 80s.

The first 2 Lps called 'Edge City Broadcasts' are Andrew Lonsdale’s (Browning Mummery) selection of rare and essential tracks representing the great variety and diversity of sounds inside the Australian Underground Music scene of the period.

Lp3 is dedicated to one side each of label recordings from the Lymph Products catalogue (The Horse He's Sick, Cerebral Haemorrhage, Kurt Volentine, Cut With The Kitchen Knife); & the home label of Browning Mummery--Boxmusik Tapes.

Lp4 is compiled by Garry Bradbury (former member of Severed Heads) with focus on bands, projects and collaborations that released on the famous Terse Tapes label such as Wet Taxis, Rhino Rhino, and Pissy Relay Switches.

Lp5 contains the split LP of Hiroshima Chair and a selection of M-Squared-Label related bands such as Systematics, Scattered Order, Ya Ya Choral, and The Makers of the Dead Travel Fast.

Lp6 and Lp7 are fully dedicated to the earliest recordings by Tom Ellard’s Severed Heads, containing the highly collectable LPs 'Clean', 'Ear Bitten' and the 'Side 2' tape.

The 7 LPs are accompanied by a large and extensive 48 page LP-sized booklet with lots of valuable information, insights and photos/scans compiled and written by David Courtney.

A must-have for those that are willing to explore and dig into the universe of Australian Underground Music of the late 70s/early 80s.

Announcement on the website that VOD will be "terminating its mission" next year. Can't say I'm surprised, as the well of early industrial/noise/cassette culture recordings must be running dry by now. Still, I'll miss them, and I treasure the Broken Flag, C93, NWW and Nitsch box sets.

heaven parker (anagram), Tuesday, 31 May 2016 10:22 (four years ago) link

sad but inevitable news. i've always had issues around the exclusivity of their releases but overall it has been an amazing label that has introduced me to so much music i'd never have heard otherwise.

Excited for the ZF.

So, did i imagine it or did he announce VoD was all over at some point, and then changed his mind?

stirmonster, Thursday, 20 June 2019 23:44 (one year ago) link

he announced a year-long break for 2018 and said he'd return in a slightly different form

during the break he was working on this:

Ambient Police (sleeve), Thursday, 20 June 2019 23:53 (one year ago) link

ah, ok. thanks. i'd seen tape-mag but didn't realise it was him. i'm not complaining but the form isn't very different.

stirmonster, Friday, 21 June 2019 00:50 (one year ago) link

no subscriptions this time around I think?

Ambient Police (sleeve), Friday, 21 June 2019 03:43 (one year ago) link

from Frank:

You can surely already reserve and preorder a copy, just let me know address and Shirt-SIze and I will get back to you with a price

There is no mailing list anymore after European copyright law had some new rules and me not being able to use my old registered emails.

But I am searching for a way to inform all 2000 soon.

Vol 2 of the awesome :zoviet*france: reissue programme went up earlier today on Frank's site, the art edition box set is sold out already but as of now the regular edition is still available along with some of the individual LPs.

joni mitchell jarre (anagram), Sunday, 13 September 2020 18:18 (one week ago) link

was the art edition box set much more expensive?

stirmonster, Sunday, 13 September 2020 18:30 (one week ago) link

no, maybe 30 more euros for like an extra print or something, maybe hand screened box?
