Limited Edition Pressings of six separate Clock Dva Albums circa 1978-80 now available as standalone, separate releases for the first time. Beautiful remastered editions, 200 copies only!
That hugely elaborate, hugely expensive ClockDva Box Set from a couple of years ago (A Chronology of Dvation) has long sold out - but Vinyl on Demand have thankfully made a very limited run (200 copies only) of each of these Six LPs that comprise such an integral component in the machinery of early Industrial music, available to buy as standalone releases for the first time.
Back in 1977 and before Clock DVA’s first incarnation Adi Newton has been a founding member of the pure electronic synthesized Sheffield-based project „The Future“. It consisted of Adi along with Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh who both went on to form the more accessible and commercial pop groups „the Human League“ and shortly after „Heaven 17“.
Adi, on the other hand, had been more interested and concerned in an Art that explored and experimented with sound and visuals to invent new forms of music that would challenge how sound can be perceived and used; Art as a means to subvert the form itself and re-use conventional instrumentation such as that found in the standard line up of Drums, Bass and Guitar, to apply pyscho accoustics and electronic treatments in order to find a new an individual morphology. In late 77 and after his departure from the „The Future“ he formed Clock DVA. Clock DVA continued to have no real comparable associates except maybe for the project Coil with whom they shared a long and industrious association.
The music on the 6Lp gives you the true picture of DVA,s Development and Chronology and leads you to the earliest s roots of New Wave and Industrial Music, a time when only a Handful of true pioneers where working such as Throbbing Gristle, Pere Ubu, The Pop Group .
