待ち望んでいた方も多い筈?遂に初リイシューにしてCD化!! 当店では今は亡きC.I.P.からの80年代音源編集版[Autismenschen]がかなりの人気を博した、ジャーマンバンドSandを前身とし81年にNadja Moltを迎え始動したエクスペリメンタル/ニューウェーブ・グループAlu。そしてほぼ同時期80年にイギリスのコベントリーでMartin Bowesを中心に結成されたゴシック/インダストリアルバンドAttrition、この二つのグループが83年に残した名作レア・スプリットカセットがリマスター仕様で再発。パキッとしたノイジーリズムとポップになり過ぎないストレンジなリフでリスナーを独自の世界へ誘う名演揃い。右側画像二種がオリジナルジャケット。











Peripheral Minimal Records are proud to present : PM29 Attrition / Alu “Attrition / Alu” CD. Reissued for the first time.

This self-titled split album seemingly accentuates the desolate paranoia of the 1980’s cold-war period by both acts’ usage of daunting electronic instrumentation, post-industrial angst and a generous helping of existentialist experimentalism. It’s perhaps unsurprising then that both Attrition and ALU hail from two cities [Coventry and Berlin] utterly destroyed by the constant bombing raids of the RAF and the Luftwaffe during WW2. Rebuilt into ultimately, naïve idealistic visions of the future, i.e. ring-roads, underpasses, Brutalist high-rise concrete blocks and a sense of utilitarian post-modernist uniformity, not to mention a sense of dystopian dread.

"Creating and exploring rich shadowy electronic soundscapes...interweaving the ephemeral with the operatic, the sound can at once calm your soul and chill your bones..." - The Hatchet [on Attrition]

The resultant recordings recall works by other artists who were working in a similarly discordant fashion, specifically, Cabaret Voltaire, Nocturnal Emissions or even the abstract, absurdist and surrealist collage-noise of Nurse With Wound. It is without doubt forgotten treasure, repackaged and remastered as an antidote to 21st century disquiet.

"We aim to store as many sounds, noise and rhythmic frameworks as possible in our synthesizers and drum machines as we allow them to unfold naturally when we play live. Words and vocals are snapshots, spontaneous phenomena." - ALU [1983]
