Label: Medical
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Originally released in 1980 on EMI France, the OGI LP (OH-JEE-EYE) is the work of Hungarian-born PETER OGI (pronounced as "ohgee"). Peter Ogi obtained formal education in music composition at the Budapest Music Academy and quickly thereafter formed the very early Hungarian punk outfit, the SPIONS. Though never documented on tape, the Spions were considered very important in the Hungarian music scene. In the late 1970s, Peter began traveling back and forth between Paris and London where he worked together with legendary producer of the Sex Pistols, MALCOLM MCLAREN. Their collaboration was integral to the creation of the OGI LP. It was recorded in Autumn 1980 at Pathe Marconi Studios, Boulogne. The album was composed by Peter Ogi with lyrics written by Malcolm McLaren on over half of the tracks. Unfortunately, the record was criminally overlooked most likely due to its French-only release. It is now being reintroduced for the first time in over 30 years. The LP is a phenomenal creation of synthesized pop. The albums opener "King Kongs Fear" creates the mood with minimal synth leanings and unusual hooks that set the stage for an adventurous slide down the synthesized rabbit-hole. The 2nd cut "Resist Dance" was also a 7" single and is a standout track of infectious catchiness. Officially licensed from EMI and features re-envisioned front and back cover art. This reissue is over one year in the making and is lovingly presented on high-quality 180-gram magenta vinyl in a hand-numbered limited edition of 650 copies." - Medical.
