Gravity The Seducer sounds crap on vinyl too.

We really need Witching Hour, Velocifero (which WAS released on 2xLP but is now OOP and goes for $150+), Gravity The Seducer & Ladytron (the newest eponymous LP) on 2xLP.

MOV would be ideal candidates.... See full review

B3 is a Keen K remix of Molecular from Wettkampf Der Moleküle. It's the highlight of this 12" for me.

Pure Spacesynth style, just like it used to be on Radio Cosmos.

Rivera F are a band without any fame.

They started off with some CDr recordings as Rivera (minus the “F”), pure synth pop with a touch of Electroclash mixed with Indie Rock flavour. They were featured on some small indie compilations (eg; Lya Taboo &... See full review

Idea visionary, thought weaver, mind impressionist, master of puppets, yielder of keys, toucher of felt, pimp extraordinaire, bit on the side, bet she's not your girlfriend, not good enough with his right foot to be a 9.

If it's a 4xLP box set I guess they'll be putting three tracks per side at 45rpm.

That's pretty nice, although the original vinyl sounds great anyway. Maybe they'll put the CD bonus tracks on too (as well as remixes) to keep it at 33.

It'd be great if FX could put their back catalogue on Bandcamp as digital files (the same way D-Zone Records have).

Big demand for these 12", and I for one would love them in uncompressed original quality.

I'm still on the hunt for most of the label on... See full review

Chab is on fire here. Full-on chunky Progressive, with plenty of dark atmospherics.

The breakdown is peak time material, including a rave inspired "riff" that carries on into the main beef of the track.

Pure class, with a touch of hands in the... See full review

An ideal DJ tool to throw in before or after My Beat.

You can switch your set from Techno to Trance or vice versa.

Proper secret weapon.

This appears to be the only vinyl issue with the full length original mix of Missing.

DJ Mellow D's remix is of course outstanding, but I really like the original too so it's nice to know it can be spun as well.

Fantastic that this album has finally been reissued, and on double 12" too! Does anyone currently own a copy, who can vouch for the sound quality? Is it 33 or 45?

I read that it's been mastered by Oliver Lieb so that's very encouraging.

TheBlackCreature, as far as I know the only vinyl reissue will be Only A Lad.

Nothing To Fear & Good For Your Soul will probably only be on CD.

EDIT, it appears they will be released on vinyl too! Probably at the end of the year.

I'm especially impressed with the low end on this remaster. The basslines are given a new life.

My original Canadian vinyl copy is probably up there with the best sounding of the original presses, but this remaster just about edges it. Even the... See full review

Nice remixes of the Grauzone anthem, the a-side being a thumping Techno version and the b-side being rather self explanatory.

I submitted this CDr back in 2011, shortly before selling it on eBay (as an auction). It sold for £50.

I imagine it's worth a bit more than that now. Crazy that someone sold it here on Discogs in 2020 for £10!

Good luck sourcing 80's / 90's quality jewel cases in the 2020's. Cheap, bendable cases are pretty much all you can buy now.

Big Electronic Beat is a good track for sure, but Playback is full of much better songs.

Reckless is by far Shannon's most accessible track as LEATHERS.

It's pure synth pop, but it still beats with a very dark heart. Musically we're talking '82-'83 era Depeche Mode, with a very generous helping of Poeme Electronique.

As a bonus, you get her... See full review
