Artist: FOCKEWULF 190
Title: The First and Second Side of the Mystic Synth
Format: 4 LP Box/7"
Label: Pripuzzi
Country: Germany
Price: $106.00
"Limited to 99 copies. 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 004LP). 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 190s output, as mastermind and co-leader Victor Life (who formed Fockewulf together with vocalist Dario DellAere) sadly passed away in early 2014. Microcosmos collects the groups 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, its a scandal." Few were aware at the time of the full extent of Fockewulf 190s 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." - Pripuzzi.

"Gatefold double LP limited to 400 copies. The last and long-overdue work of the highly influential, enigmatic, near-mythical Italian group Fockewulf 190.

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." - Pripuzzi.

Title: Microcosmos 82-86
Format: Double LP
Label: Vinyl-On-Demand
Country: Germany
Price: $41.00
"Suberb synth- and wave-tunes of Fockewulf 190 including the two Italo-disco-classic 12"s Body Heat and Gitano plus more demos and so far unreleased treasures like Orient Express collected from the archive of Victor. Victor once stated: The Fockewulf 190 project was created as a shape equal to a substance, experimental analogy electronic music connected to the theatrical and mimic power of rock and the romantic and esthetic force of the electronic dance of the 80s. We translated those expressive channels with the force of a psychedelic mind folded into a magic and evocative world, an profound research into ourselves. This personal and futuristic mysticism originated the dark side of Italo disco. The publishing, 25 years later, of what should have been our first album in 1986, Microcosmos, shines a light on the sonic creativity of the Fw 190, also because its a record composed only by simple original demos; something pure and synthetic, uncontaminated by commercial compromises." - Vinyl-On-Demand. Gatefold sleeve; numbered edition of 600 copies.
