Before Rob Deacon was the instiguator of the famous « Volume » series, he was, in the mid 80’s, involved in the « Abstract Magazine » project. So far i know, there was just only 2 exclusive compilation that were pressed, number 5 and … number 6 (!). The principle was to propose exclusive and specifically recorded tracks for these compilation. Here is a panel from some bands who were active in 1985 plus an unlisted secret track recorded by In The Nursery. But if more informations needed, i’ve included the complete magazine in this post.

It seems that since some months The Wolfgang Press are more « modal » than ever ! I saw some blogs posting good stuff from them & others that i like a lot. But my question is, as a numbered man … strange, i try to post that i’ve not seen elsewhere on other blogs and then, and then, it came out so spontaneously on the blogosphere. Yeah, why not, this area is made to share… If my shadow can help, why not … God thanks, i’ve no ego trip. Just look a the few comments on this blog. But what is realy share ? To communicate, to like something, to take time leave a comment ? Wah ! The world we’re living today ! The Wolfgang Press are very nice guys, i made an interview with them in 1995, Mike Allen especially of course, i recorded it on my poor tape and was never released… I was like a teenager meeting his favourit band (like a Beatles fan interwieving the Beatles ! ! !). So, here is a 12 inch that i bought at the right time, and i remember to have made some « parties » with this in 1990 !
If you’re realy interrested about more informations, you know where. Cause that all they want, are informations, informations… But i’m not only a number, and not especially the number 6…

So, here are 2 another A.R Kane’s 12’’. The first one " Listen Up " ! under the ARK pseudo, sounds more like a collapsing sampling party. Alike a " pump up the volume " excercise. A little bit poor maybe, but it was in 1988. Sorry about some " jumps " at the beginning of both tracks. The second one " Love-Sick " more as what we know from the band, close in sounds and textures to the " 69 " album, it was also the same period. Except " Green Hazed Daze " (avalaible on the " Americana " compilation) all tracks are unavalaible & were never officialy reissued. I wished, i had a better sound & hope that it’ll be avalaible again…

Involved with Wire’s crue ( Bruce Gilbert & Graham Lewis ) in the late 70’s. Angela Conway ( Marias ) explored new and unusuals approaches to this record. ‘Just Talk’ is a minimalist and repeated process of guitars loops. Echoing with a minimal strings synthesizer. The whole covered by Angela’s sweet and floating voice. It reminds me some ‘electronica’ pieces from the early 90’s. A subtly mix of hypnotic waves and etheral backgrounds. The vocal title was reissued on ‘One Of Our Girls (has gone missing)’ album, in 1989.

Bauhaus, a quiet band discribed as "gothic". Not really in my own opinion. This gave me the opportunity to ripp my LP of their concert played in 1982 in Milano. This is the way to listen them live, with the energy of a powerfull rock. Punk but deep in sounds and tensions. Peter Murphy as a charismatic singer supported by Dany Ash (guitar), David J. (bass) and his brother Kevin Haskins (drums). Bauhaus is a unique experience, multi-influenced by several kind of "roots". Not gothic but very inspired. This LP is a 400 Limited Edition bootleg and was pressed by the german Geebo Geebo records " company ". So, enjoy them live !
