Various – Out Of Tune

Again with a big thanks to UF. here’s a late 80′s electronic compilation with one experimental band. Vomito Negro: The musical collaboration between Guy Van Mieghem and Gin Devo already took off way back in 1983, and over the past years they established a name for themselves as uncompromising aural architects, combining power with emotion, trance with vision. Vomito Negro is latin (portuguese/spanish) for “black vomit”, a phenomenon that arises in the last stage of the disease yellow fever.From the start on, flexibility is one of the duo´s major qualities. They never are content with a certain formula: their musical approach, essentially based on the European “Industrialist” tradition of the early eighties, takes a different angle with every record. Tracing back their history through albums as diverse as ‘Vomito Negro’ (their haunting debut from 1985) to ‘Wake Up’ (1992) one hears growth and evolution in Vomito Negro´s varied soundscapes. Their impressive, synthesized psychodramas range from danceable to contemplative, from instrumental to and ambient to voice-ridden and brutal. Live, the sound and the imagery of the group´s stage are an inescapable force setting alight the imagination of the listener/spectator. S*Core: Active since the mid of the eighties, japanese musician Yutaka Tanaka released his works under the name S-CORE. Early works are all cassette albums he put out on his own cassette label Afflict Records, many of those were recorded via mail collaboration with many sound artists from international underground scene, such as Stefano Biasin (Italy), Telepherique and Trigger B (Germany), Merzbow (Japan), Al Margolis/If, Bwana (USA), Rafael Flores (Spain). E!Truncheon: no info. Anybody? Liquid G.: After several years playing in different bands on the bass guitar, Peter VB started his one men project Liquid G. (don’t forget the point!)(Liquid Garbage). With some old equipment he tried to get some songs on tapes. During the years he also participates on several compilation tapes in different countries. Absolute Body Control: was formed early 1980 by Dirk Ivens (synth and voice) and joined by Mark De Jonghe (synths) and Veerle De Schepper (backing vocals). After the single “Is There An Exit?”, which became a local culthit, Mark left the band, but his place was already taken by Eric Van Wonterghem. Absolute Body Control was one of the first active belgian electronic bands on stage and the next three years they appeared on many compilations worldwide. In 1984, Dirk became the founder of ‘The klinik’ and is active as ‘Dive’ and ‘Sonar’. Eric has his own project ‘Monolith’, but is also involved in the ‘Sonar’ project. Typis Belgis: were from Belgium, Asse (near Brussels) to be more specfic. Members were Thierry Verreycken, Patrick D’Ascotte and Hans Pauwels. Apart from the demo ‘Deodorant Voor De Derde Oksel’ they only contributed to some compilations. Though a live in Germany tape is also rumoured to exist…. Out of Tune was released as a 7″ by Body Records (BR003) in 1988.
