lmtd 99 clear Vinyl in Box with Shirt Bonus 7inch and Microcosmos 2Lp (VOD89-Release)
This limited 99 4Lp-Box combines the last and long overdue work of the highly influential, enigmatic & near mythical Italo-Group Fockewulf 190 called “the First & Second Side of the Mystic Synth” plus a limited clear Vinyl re-release of “Microcosmos 1982-86” only available as part of this Box-Set
As Protagonists to the Dark Side of Italo Disco evolving and developing in the mid 80’s music-scene, they influenced countless newborn artists all over the globe.
The newly recorded Studio-Lp in combination with a re-work of the 1986-Demo-Lp “In a Room of Memory” represents the final chapter of Fockewulf 190’s output as mastermind & Fockewulf 190 co-leader Victor Life (who formed Fockewulf together with vocalist Dario Dell'Aere) sadly passed away in early 2014.
The Microcosmos 2Lp collects the group's two original singles, 'Gitano' and the legendary 'Body Heat', together with new remixes and other demos from 1982-86. 'Body Heat' featured "the Voice of Italo", Fred Ventura. In the end-of-year charts it was causing I-F to exclaim: "it rocks so hard, it's a scandal", and we were in total agreement... we had yet no idea of to the full extent of their mystic 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 analogic electronic music connected to the theatrical and mimic power of rock and the romantic and aesthetical force of the electronic dance of the 80s. Fockewulf translated those expressive channels with the force of a psychedelic mind folded into a magic and evocative world, alongside with a profound research into themselves.
More than 3 decades after their foundation their esoteric electronic capital and evocative vision can be fully appreciated by a freshly synthesized generation, offering something remarkably definitive and quite honestly, ESSENTIAL.
