new stuff #3: goodbye_delete

und mal wieder etwas neues:

goodbye_delete aus london.

john webber`s projekt ist insofern ziemlich aussergewöhnlich, als dass er seine musik mit diversen musikern aus aller welt fabriziert.
und das hört man den tracks auch an!

etwas 80er synth-new-wave, mit ewig vielen unterschiedlichen sounds und einflüssen angereichert, dabei aber stets poppig - was die musik eben nicht nur interessant, sondern auch eingängig macht.

demnächst wird es eine erste ep namens "sacrificial" geben, der die anderen tracks aber keineswegs nachstehen.

3 tracks von 2010 - 2011 gibt es hier kostenlos:

und das warten auf "sacrificial" wird sich lohnen:

Mag/Spys - Lifeblood by haudegen

btw, interessante ausführungen zur geschichte von martin ordish, dem drummer:

"Formed out of the ashes of 'The Guernsey Flowers', then changing their name to 'The Amazing Doctor Octopuss' before settling on 'Lockjaw'. The first ever gig was under the name of 'The Guernsey Flowers' and it was at 'St Francis' Church Hall, Balcombe Road in Horley. For a laugh we put a load of confetti in a cardboard box over the stage. It was my idea of special effects!! What we didn't realise that earlier in the day, the box had contained flowers from Guernsey, and this was actually printed on the side of the box!!! These special effects (or not as the case was...) lead the audience (one man and his dog with a few Hippies chucked in for good measure) led to a slight misunderstanding. The upshot was, the assumption we were called 'The Guernsey Flowers' ... Not the best name for a young well 'ard Punk band starting out in those days! It took ages to shake off this name but thinking back it was a good old larf...

In our two year existence, we recorded many tracks for 'Lee Wood's' "Raw Records" and managed to release two singles on his label. The first being 'Radio Call Sign' which was actually written by our faithful Van Driver / Roadie come Manager 'Dave Gallup', the older brother to 'Simon Gallup'. The label actually credited a 'D. Gallot' but this was a typing error. The follow up single was 'Journalist Jive'. Unfortunately, the other studio recorded tracks have been lost in time......or have they? It would be good if we could track down the masters to all these tracks, or good quality versions so that we could release then as a retrospective release and actually make a little dosh as we never saw a penny from Lee Wood!!!

When we were gigging as 'Lockjaw' we used to play with another local band called "Easycure". We used to play under the heading of "I KNOW AN EASYCURE FOR LOCKJAW". A year later they dropped the 'Easy' and became 'The Cure' and we changed our name to the "The Magazine Spies" or just Mag/Spys.

Just as the 'The Cure' were breaking, the band were invited to support 'The Specials' in Paris so a few members of the 'Mag/Spys went along as roadies for them.

Sadly, the Mag/Spys wasn't really in existence that long as things were really taking off for the other local band The Cure' as they had just been signed to 'Fiction Records' and 'Mick Dempsy' has just left and his space needed filling. So 'Robert Smith' asked 'Simon Gallup' & Matthieu Hartley' if they would like to join The Cure. Sadly that was the last time we saw those two for many years!

Years later, I went on 'Head On The Door' tour with 'The Cure' and Robert Smith ponced a fiver from me....I suppose some things never change!

The rest is history so to speak....

The Garden Of Delight - ENKI`s Temple (Demo Tape)

The Garden Of Delight - ENKI`s Temple
01 - Shizophrenia
02 - Paganus cantus
03 - The second gate of Silence
04 - Ancient God
05 - Ancient God (dead but never gone)
06 - ENKI`s Temple and the gates of UR


dieses demotape habe ich 1993 erstanden.

nachdem ich mir die limitierte "nava"-box und die erste single dieser fantastischen gruppe zugelegt hatte, musste ich natürlich auch das erste demo-tape irgendwie bekommen...
danke dafür, amöbenklang mailorder!

auf dem tape sind stücke, die später für das erste album (auch unter dem namen "ENKI`s Temple") aufgenommen wurden, aber auch gänzlich verschollenes...
in sich stimmig, ähnlich athmosphärisch wie die ersten releases dieser gruppe waren -ich liebe es!

nach sieben alben und diversen reunions sind sie nun "merciful nuns" (
auch gut.
aber eben nicht the garden of delight.
