Melbourne has a new record label, NICE: NOISE: dedicated to up-heaving Australia's backyards, draining the suburban pools & scouring the cupboards of our cities share houses past & present to bring you the best in electronic squelches, squeals, analogue hums & various fodder. NICE: NOISE is a sub-imprint of Dual Planet and will be a label focused on 1980s Post Punk electronics and Minimal Synth from Australia. A collaborative project curated together with Kate Reid from It Records & Jenny Branagan from NUN. Taking our name from the Philip Brophy/Tsk Tsk Tsk track where minimalism and pop collide head on, we'll be delving deep to explore the unknown recordings of this incredible scene. NICE: NOISE in collaboration with It Records is proud to present our first title, a compilation from the legendary Melbourne Minimal Wave trio the Metronomes. Forming in 1979 and releasing two singles and two studio albums for Cleopatra Records (Cybotron/Tolley & Dara), the Metronomes consisted of individuals from various groups from the Melbourne post punk scene, Al Webb (Streetlife), Andrew Picouleau (Secret Police, PopGunMen, X-Ray-Z, Sacred Cowboys) and Ash Wednesday (JAB, Models, Modern Jazz, CRASHLAND!). Time Keeping is a hand picked selection of loose post-punk fragmentations and seamlessly welded circuits by these Australian electronic auteurs.
