In celebration of Record Store Day (Black Friday), Medical Records returns to France for the reissue of the very rare and sought-after Video Liszt LP. Ektakröm Killer was released in 1981 and had never had never been reissued or repressed.
The artist behind Video Liszt was Xol, a French journalist and musician. Commanding a multitude of analog synthesizers, Moog modulars, an EMS vocoder, and an Apple Two computer, Xol crafted a very diverse album with styles ranging from sci-fi synth soundtracks, prog, space disco, and all the way to more accessible electropop.
The album was produced by Richard Pinhas (Heldon, Moogi-Le-Moog) and recorded in Pinhas’s Studio Ramsès. Pinhas contributes guitar as well. Also of interest was that Jean-Louis Rizet (from French space rock group Pôle) engineered the record!
Lovers of Einzelgänger, Jean-Michael Jarre, Kraftwerk, as well as late period Heldon will be head over heels with this hidden gem. Original copies have become very collectible and expensive in the secondhand record market.
