Sørøversangen

Sebastian – Sørøversangen

Sørøversangen which means the Pirate song is from the danish translation of The Treasure Island “Skatteøen” Written and composed by Sebastian. This particular song is not the official version but from a Demo LP from Sebastian, released in 1990. Though i find Sebastian to be one of the finest songwriters from our little kingdom, this LP stands even further out for me since a lot of the songs which are commonly known is presented on a much more primitive way. Many of them with synth and drummachines. There’s some really great finds on this album and i thank my friend Kim for finding it to me! I raise my hand in the air and sing out loud “15 mand på en død mands kiste. Hey hoo og en hel flaske rom!” meaning “15 men on a dead mans coffin. Hey hoo and bottle full of Rum”

International Broadcasting Musicians – Computer Love

Being a teen in the 80’s I had a chance to play some “stimulating” computer games with Commodore 64. Unfortunately I never had a chance to try Interlude #99.

Yugoslavian Space Program

Miha Kralj – Robot

This vinyl collection of previously unrealesed electronic tracks from 1981 till 2015 has been available on Discom label for a few months now.  As it’s a strictly limited realese do yourself a favour and get a copy right away. You will definitely not want to miss the two Miha Kralj masterpieces that open the album. Take a listen for proof. The rest of the material is less disco but interesting nevertheless, and that sleeve!  Your all-white neo-minimalist flat-cum-gallery living space demands you  frame it.

Scoretrack

mspSiegi Gruber – Scoretrack

What are the odds of finding something this weird from a Finnish flea? Kudos to DJ Piitu for his amazing digging skills and unselfish friendliness handing me this cosmic gem originating from Austria. Most perfect soundscape for fine-tuning the moods for things to come later in the night or those peak moments of slow motion disco.

Heart Beat

Fumio Miyashita – Heart Beat

Japanese Fumio Miyashita have made quite a lot ambient new age records in the 80s. I’m not too familiar with these but on the Earth LP there’s some really good cosmic downtempo tunes. Heart Beat is at the moment my favourite, but it can change. quality record!
