Both Attrition/ALU self-titled albums were originally released in 1983, on C60 cassette. This self-titled split album CD reissue seemingly accentuates the desolate paranoia of the 1980's cold-war period by both acts' usage of daunting electronic instrumentation, post-industrial angst and a generous helping of existentialist experimentalism. It is without doubt forgotten treasure, repackaged and remastered as an antidote to 21st century disquiet.
Today Belongs To Me: The Complete Recordings 1977-1980
"Today Belongs To Me" is the first complete anthology of a band that, despite critical acclaim and major label support, somehow fell through the cracks. It includes every known studio recording - including early pre-EMI EP - as well as 9 previously unreleased, from-the-masters studio demos, with 2o early versions of 1979 single "Living In The Sticks" joined by 7 previously-unheard late 70s songs in the classic Flys tradition.
"Commissions 2" is a brand new double-CD collection of soundtrack recordings by Blaine L. Reininger. It sits as a sequel to his previous double-CD soundtrack anthology "Commissions" (2014). Written and recorded between 2015 and 2019, the instrumental selections on "Commissions 2" are drawn from six European theatre and dance productions including "Angels", "Caligula", "Picnic With The Devil (aka The Master And Margarita)", "Reigen", "The Kindly Ones" and "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?". The arresting cover image (from "Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?") is by Elina Giounanli.
