Disco Volante

Here’s another wonderful time machine find. Disco Volante is music project based in London from songwriter Terry Tanx. The single No Motion was released in 1984.

“In 1984 Disco Volante released a single “No Motion” C/W “Click” and “Punishment Tank”. The single did not do well commercially and due to a strike in the music press didn’t receive any publicity at all. The whole Electronic Music landscape has changed since the early 1980s. When Disco Volante recorded No Motion, the studio engineer was shocked, when arriving at the studio all of the equipment used on the single could be put into a couple of hold alls. For those interested in the technology the equipment used on the single was: Roland TB 303 Bassline, Roland TR 606 Drum-matix, Roland MC-202 Sequencer, Roland SH-09 Mono synth.” – discovolanteonline.com

Kline Coma Xero

Here is some new cold wave, synthpop created in California with Eurorack modules and analog drum machines. Kline Coma Xero is Tony Williams. I think the song Fanatic is my favorite so far. I’m definitely looking forward to more.

“Kline Coma Xero is a minimal wave/synth project produced by Tony Williams from California. The distinctive sound of Kline Coma Xero is produced solely from analogue instruments, producing a cold yet beautifully crafted melodies and rhythms. Such inspiration could only be found in the early European minimal wave/synth groups from the 1980′s. The project gained inception in June of 2012 and offer…s an alternative to the arbitrary use of the laptop as an instrument which has become indicative of modern electronic music. The minimal melodies are layered with melancholy vocals with lyrical content and philosophical outlook inspired from the authors like JG Ballard and Thomas Pynchon.” – SoundIndieMusic
