The two LPs are straight reissues of the first two Kleistwahr cassettes released by Broken Flag in 1983 - BF3 and BF15. They are the first two volumes in a series of four releases cataloging the early Kleistwahr recordings. Kleistwahr was the solo project of Gary Mundy which he ran alongside his main band Ramleh. "Edition of only 250 copies reissue of what was originally a limited 1983 cassette release (BF15) on the legendary Broken Flag label. Kleistwahr is the solo project of BF head Gary Mundy (Ramleh/S.P.I.T.E./Skullflower/Consumer Electronics et al) and Arsonicide matches the early hysterical Whitehouse sound with harsh oscillating feedback, electronics and wild vocal assaults. Some amazing bloody-minded noise on this, with the epic second track that combines arcing cracked synth tones and sudden explosions of voice matching the best of Maurizio Bianchi’s ‘symphonic’ work but with a supremely crude UK DIY edge that is particularly satisfying. On the flip the electronics get even more alienated and extreme, with minimal morse code patterns dancing beneath flat-line feedback drones and waves of minimal tone threat. Spectacularly great and highly recommended!" Volcanic Tongue
