Product Description

Medical Records presents a reissue of one of Germany's most interesting records. The German duo ALOA only made one album in 1982, but it is one of the most peculiar and innovative records of the Neue Deutsche Welle movement. Long out of print, somewhat obscure, and very expensive, this record is due for an official reissue. The duo consisting of AL KANZ and MATTIAS BRENDEL both grew up in Kassel, Germany. Though both had different tastes of music, they fused influences and injected them into their own unique blend when they purchased Roland 606 and 808 drum machines plus a Sequential Circuits Prophet 5. After much development and evolution, the Aloa project came to life. The album explores a whole spectrum of textures, moods, and atmospheres. Ranging from dark complex synthed-out tracks to diverse instrumentation-laced almost Krautrock motifs, this album is definitely one of a kind. From the commanding first track "Weisser Wal" with it's almost Bryan Ferry style vocals to the atmospheric "Banane Zitrone," the twists and turns are endless. This is a very sultry record as well evidenced by the band's constant obsession with sexy women who occupied their time. Definitely will appeal to fans of The Residents, Neue Deutsche Welle, and anything and everything that lives in the outer reaches of synth territory. Sadly the record was overlooked and misunderstood by the press and radio stations alike likely due to it's obvious unorthodox and experimental interpretation of synthpop. Restored and mastered from the original master tapes by Klearlight Studios in Dallas, TX. Presented on high-quality 180gram heavyweight green vinyl. Features bonus LP insert with liner notes and interview by DAVE SEGAL. Limited Edition.
