$130.99
Fockewulf 190 FIRST & SECOND SIDE OF THE MYSTIC SYNTH Vinyl Record
This box set combines the last and long-overdue work of the highly influential, enigmatic, and near-mythical Italian group Fockewulf 190, The First and Second Side of the Mystic Synth, with a re-work of the 1986 demo LP In the Rooms of Memory, a clear vinyl repress of the 2011 double LP compilation Microcosmos 1982-86 (only available as part of this box set), a bonus 7", and a shirt. The First and Second Side of the Mystic Synth and In the Rooms of Memory are also available as a standalone double LP (PRIP 004 LP). As protagonists of the dark side of Italo disco that evolved and developed in the mid '80s, Fockewulf 190 influenced countless newborn artists all over the globe. This final studio LP, The First and Second Side of the Mystic Synth, in combination with a re-work of the 1986 demo LP In the Rooms of Memory, represents the final chapter of Fockewulf 190's output, as mastermind and co-leader Victor Life (who formed Fockewulf together with vocalist Dario Dell'Aere) sadly passed away in early 2014. Microcosmos collects the group's two original 1984 singles, Gitano and the legendary Body Heat, together with demos from 1982-'86 and remixes by Maurizio Piazza and Fockewulf. "Body Heat," which features the "voice of Italo Disco," Fred Ventura, caused I-F to exclaim, "It rocks so hard, it's a scandal." Few were aware at the time of the full extent of Fockewulf 190's mystical sonic concepts, which dealt with the esoteric integration of Kabbalah into electronic music. Fockewulf 190 was created as a shape equal to a substance, experimental analog electronic music connected to the theatrical power of rock and the romantic and aesthetic force of electronic dance music of the '80s. Fockewulf translated those expressive channels with the force of a psychedelic mind folded into a magic and evocative world. Decades after their formation, their esoteric electronic music and evocative vision can be fully appreciated by a freshly synthesized generation, offering something remarkably definitive and, quite honestly, essential.
