Product Details

Medical Records returns to Germany for the reissue of 2 essential pieces of wave history. MR-023 is the release by Munich's Body 11. Body 11 is/was the one-man project of Tim Stickelbrucks. Inspired by the late 70s/early 80s icons such as OMD, Human League, and Cabaret Voltaire, Tim wrote and recorded 4 songs in 1987 in his apartment and self-released the "Mind" 7 inch EP in 1988. Rather obscure at the time, the 7" gained cult status later in the 90s when collectors and word of mouth fans began seeking out copies of the record. Soon thereafter, the cost of obtaining an original skyrocketed on the collector's market. Medical Records is proud to reissue the "Mind" EP 4 songs along with unreleased recordings created at the same time. The unreleased tracks were songs that were distributed only on cassette (to friends, etc) at the time. The tracks have been transferred from cassette and have been remastered by Jacob Jacobsen for this reissue. The LP embodies the essence of the EBM (electronic body music) subgenre that was prevalent in the late 80s. Though retaining a DIY/demo feel, the tracks have a warm synth/beat laced mood that will surprise and delight fans of this era who are not knowledgeable of Body 11. The opener "Wasteland" definitely evokes a rougher/distorted vocal style over a sequenced Front 242 style rhythm with treated guitar highlights. "Attack" (from the "Mind" EP) is a dance floor cutter with industrial percussion and carefully accented synth leads and samples. The more hypnotic (but no less catchy) "Hearts" is a slightly more emotional vocal style over popping synths and drum machine rhythms. The unreleased tracks seems to interface with the "Mind" EP songs seamlessly. Fans of early Nitzer Ebb, Front 242, late 80s industrial (Wax Trax, Nettwerk) and even early Skinny Puppy will find this collection essential. This is long overdue for reissue and presentation to the world. This reissue/collection is presented on high-quality 180gram "milky clear" vinyl. The jacket art was envisioned by Tim Stickelbrucks with inspiration from the original "Mind" EP front cover art. Features bonus insert with liner notes by Kurt B. Reighley. Limited edition.
