Konstruktivists was formed by Glenn Michael Wallis in 1982 out of the ashes of Heute, a kraut rock influenced trio using electronics as well as conventional guitars and bass. Around this time - in the late 70's/early 80's Glenn Michael Wallis was heavily involved with Throbbing Gristle, the U.K. pioneers of "Industrial".

The first Konstruktivists vinyl album "A Dissembly" was issued in 1983. This was quickly followed by their seminal LP "Psykho Genetika" after signing to the newly-formed Third Mind records. At this point Glenn also moonlighted as a part-time member of Whitehouse - playing live with them in several countries and participating on their LP "Great White Death". 1984 saw the release of "Black December", a more rhythm-oriented album, and the year after the Chris Carter produced masterpiece "Glennascaul".

After a seven year hiatus, the band returned on World Serpent with the album "Forbidden" and the club hit single "Tic Tac Toe". With Mark Crumby joining in 1997 the band made a move towards a Techno kind of sound. "Seventh Soviet Symphony" is a Glenn Wallis solo recording that came out on the band's own Interior Recordings label in a micro edition of a handful CDRs in 2009. It picks up where "The Last Moments Of 1923" ended - up to this day, Glenn's favourite Konstruktivist recording.

Dark atmospheric soundscapes dominate the mood. An outstanding vocal performance comes in late during the album. In our opinion an overlooked masterpiece by this influential UK Industrial group.
