Klaus Schulze —
Next Of Kin ... LP Roundtable (Australia), 1982. New Copy (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
An obscure Klaus Schulze soundtrack, done for an Australian horror film from the early 80s – all in modes that are a nice condensation of Klaus' longer-form work from the 70s! The tunes here are still heavy on the kind of keyboards that Schulze helped pioneer in Tangerine Dream and his own solo work – but the songs are a bit shorter, and maybe more focused – yet with a complexity that almost has us wondering if Klaus was trying to show up the whole keyboard-horror generation at their own game! There seem to be a few more digital elements in the mix, too – and all tunes are instrumental, save for the last track, which has a moody vocoder vocal. Titles include "Crash Loop", "Body In Bath", "Linda Flees", "Dream Theme", "Rhythm Fugue", and "Diary Theme". (Soundtracks, Rock)LP, Vinyl record album
Never-issued material from Australian experimentalist Steve Maxwell Von Braund – best known for his work in the space rock band Cybotron, and working here in relatively similar territory on tracks from a host of lost tapes from the late 70s! Steve plays Arp, Mini Korg, and other keyboards – plus a bit of alto sax too – all with a cool sound that's nicely processed, and maybe a more down to earth take on some of the modes from the German scene at the start of the 70s! Most of these tracks are tuneful and rhythmic, and occasionally feature contributions from additional musicians – but still in a way that's nice and lean, and which maybe is almost more like some of the space funk and club recordings that were coming out of Paris and Rome. Titles include "Abbey Moor", "The Floor Before", "Detective", "Goldhawk", and "Unorganization". LP, Vinyl record album
