13/2/2012 ‘LoveFinders+’ tracklist

The snow is doing it’s best to transform Brno into a winter wonderland, but experience tells that any transformation will be fleeting, soon sullied by the city’s traffic and melting sadly leaving the usual detritus. But, as darkness falls with a breeze giving the flakes strength in their flight, it isn’t a time to be looking ahead as I turn my mind to the tracks played on Monday evening’s show, when the focus was on some record labels from Manchester.                                                                                                 I would have liked to have included something  from  the worthy New Hormones label and perhaps even Rabid Records, but my vinyl is back in the UK, so it wasn’t possible. For the same reason, I was only able to play one track from Object Music – nothing from the interesting collection, ‘Dubious Collaborations: Indiscreet Music’, or from Steve Miro’s ‘Rude Intrusions’ album, the only album produced by the label with a decent cover if I recall correctly – label owner Steve Solamar seemed to use Buzzcocks ‘Spiral Scratch’ E.P cover as the template for Object’s designs…..                                                                                          But, I should get around to listing the tracks from the four labels the week’s focus did alight on, starting with Factory Records:

1)JOY DIVISION – ATROCITY EXHIBITION /from ‘Closer’/ Factory Records 1980                                                                                       2)A CERTAIN RATIO – KNIFE CUTS WATER /originally a 1982 12″ single, included on the ‘FAC.DANCE’ compilation/Strut 2011          More info: http://www.factoryrecords.net/                                                                                                                                               3)THE PASSAGE – HUNT /from ‘Pindrop’/ Object Music 1980                                                                                                                                More info: http://www.ltmrecordings.com/alobjectmusic.html                                                                                                                            4)ANDY STOTT – NEW GROUND /from ‘Passed Me By’/ Modern Love 2010                                                                                                 5)PENDLE COVEN – MVO CHAMBER /from ‘Self-Assessment’/ Modern Love 2009                                                                             More info: http://www.modern-love.co.uk/                                                                                                                                                             6)SROENG SANTI -NAM MUN PANG /from the ‘Thai? Dai’ collection/ Finders Keepers 2010                                                             7)SUSAN CHRISTIE – RAINY  DAY /from ‘Paint A Lady’/ Finders Keepers 2007                                                                                   8)LUBOS FISER – THE SERMON /from the ‘Valerie And Her Week Of Wonders’ soundtrack/ Finders Keepers 2006                 9)FUSIOON – CONTRASTE /from ‘Absolute Fusioon’/ Finders Keepers 2011                                                                                         More info: http://www.finderskeepersrecords.com/                                                                                                                                            10)DEMDIKE STARE – LIBRARY OF SOLOMON BOOK 2 /bonus track on the ‘Triptych’ edition of ‘Liberation Through Hearing’/ Modern Love 2011

Just a small taste of the work of a quartet of fine Mancunian labels whose sonic delights are well worth investigating if you aren’t already familiar with them!                                                                                                                                                                          As the snow continues to fall on South Moravia, it’s time to bring this to wrap this up……

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
