Out of stock

This outstanding deluxe Box-Set delivers an excellent and extensive overview of John Benders music-output recorded between 1976-1985. John Bender is without any doubt, the protagonist, if not the inventor of a whole musical-genre known as Cold Minimal Wave/Synth. His synthesizer-sounds already carried elements of techno and acid-beats while techno was still to be invented a decade later.
His voice and his partially sentimental and mourning lyrics made his music to something outstanding and extraordinary, unheard before in this mixture. His three self-released Lp’s „I don’t remember now (1980), Plaster Falling (1981) and Pop Surgery (1983) are a must-have for every serious collector and interested person in such cold-wave/minimal-synth/techno-sounds.

The Lp’s „Plaster Falling“ and „Pop Surgery“ contain selections from several Tape-releases known as „Plaster: the Prototypes“ (1981), Packing List (1982), At the 4th Street Cage 1/83 (1983) & Do the Cage (1983) which compiled many of his recordings done between 1979 and 1983. The 7Lp-Folder-Set includes all and even extended Versions from those three Lp’s released on his own Label „Record Sluts“ plus most of his recordings from the 4 official Tape-Releases mentioned. In addition to these official Vinyl and Tape-Releases the Box will also contain an extract of the Soundtrack-Recording to „Johnny Vortex“ (1985) as well as tracks from two Archive-Tapes with previously unreleased material recorded in 1976 (pre Record-Sluts) and 1978.
