Mannequin Records present an LP compilation of Michael Antener's (Swamp Terrorist) early '80s minimal synth/industrial projects Nacht'Raum (with Michael Stämpfli) and his solo project Bande Berne Crematoire. Heavily influenced by the works of SPK and Nocturnal Emissions, Michael Antener made his first recordings in the basement of his parents' house in a small village nearby Bern, Utzensdorf. He started BBC in 1980, a hybrid of Neue Deutsch Welle and noise/experimental, making a household name in the international home recording scene of the time and participating to many tape compilations. Teaming up with Michael Stämpfli as Nacht'Raum, he self-released the untitled mini-LP in 1983. Coming out from the same town of Grauzone, the duo moved into the darkest minimal electronic sounds, choosing German as main language for the lyrics and a Roland TR-808 as main drum machine, bringing the sound to a proto-electro dimension. Nacth'Raum is a real gem in '80s Swiss underground electronic music, together with Mittageisen, Grauzone, LiLiPut, and The Vyllies. Michael, by the way, later teamed up with Ane Hebeisen. They went by the name of Swamp Terrorists, releasing seven albums and touring throughout the world until the end of the '90s. At the end of the '90s, he sold all of his instruments and became an independent graphic artist. Mastered by Rude 666. Includes two inserts; Edition of 500.
