The summer is here and we will be taking a short break from July 9 to July 21st. The Klanggalerie office will be closed between these days, replies to e-mails will take a lot longer than normally.
Apart from these 11 days, we will be as efficient as ever during July and August with the comeback album by Strafe für Rebellion scheduled for July 30th.
August will bring the long delayed Doublevision works by Sheffield band The Box with some unreleased Richard H. Kirk remixes.
September and October will bring some very special products, it's a little too early to announce them but we are very excited about them. We're sure you will be, too!
As usual, Klanggalerie will also be present at Tower Transmissions Festival in Dresden and Wroclaw Industrial Festival in Poland, in September and November respectively.
If you're enjoying the summer and taking it easy, why not browse our huge catalogue and discover some titles you might have missed, like the beautiful new CD by R.B. Russell or the re-issue of Konstruktivists' Persona Non Grata CD.
Have fun and see you here or there.
We have started accepting pre-orders for RENALDO & THE LOAF's "Behind Closed Curtains" double CD. It features BCC, Tap Dancing In Slush (both the first recordings by RATL, never released in any form!), plus a full CD of early experimentation called "Rotcodism". A kind of holy grail for Renaldo fans!
Then, RB Russell's beautiful soundtrack album "Bloody Baudelaire" is out now in a very small edition of 100 copies. It features Matt Howden of Sieben guesting on violin and the first few copies include an original signed photograph.
Over the summer expect the new album from Düsseldorf avantgarde outfit Strafe für Rebellion and the retrospective CD of Western Works recordings by Sheffield avant-jazz-funk-punk group The Box, including some unreleases remixes by Cabaret Voltaire man Richard H. Kirk.
Mushroom's Patience will play a gig with Canada's wonderful The Burning Hell on 16 June 2014 at Vienna's Rhiz club. A few weeks later the fabulous Roma Amor will present their new album "On The Wire" at XI Bar, Vienna, on 5 July 2014.
Enjoy the summer!
The Kula album is now out on CD. Stephen Mallinder and Ron Wright recorded this back in 1981 and both provided new versions of the track for this release. A must-have for all Cabaret Voltaire and Hula fans.
Our next release will be "Behind Closed Curtains/Tap Dancing In Slush" by Renaldo & The Loaf. This will be a real gem in our catalogue as it represents the earliest recordings RATL ever did.
Some new productions have appeared on the horizon - very excited about the re-issue of Sheffield legend Chakk's first ever cassette. Entitled "Clocks And Babies" it was self-released by the band in 1982, 2 years before their first 12" and 4 years before the first album.
