Description

Minimal Wave is proud to announce a full length LP release entitled Clean Tables Have To Be Burnt by UK legends HARD CORPS, a band we've been long time admirers of. Aside from their releases on Survival and Polydor, Hard Corps gained some notoriety for their unique and uncompromising live shows throughout the 1980s. It was the juxtaposition between their hard edged industrial sound and the fragile and enigmatic vocals of French frontwoman REGINE FETET that created an unusual dichotomy, lending to their strength of character as a band and thus allowing them to stand out from the rest. A 12" white label, released by Survival Records, containing the hammering rhythmic attack of "Dirty" and the softer, melodic, pulse of "Respirer (To Breathe)" was circulated around London's dance floors. In no time a wave of attention hit them and throughout 1984 and into 1985 they dominated the independent pop charts. John Peel championed them on his infamous late night Radio One show and they headlined at his ICA Rock Week in the Mall, London. By 1985 Hard Corps had signed with major label giants Polydor. This enabled the band to work with a couple of their favoured and respected producers, MARTIN RUSHENT (known mostly for his exceptional work with the Human League) and Depeche Mode producer and Mute Records supremo, DANIEL MILLER. These sessions provided the public with just one single due to the labels non-promotion, Je Suis Passee, a sweeping arrangement of breathtaking beauty, combining pumping sequences and sheer power of emotion of Regine's voice. The band went on a major tour with The Cure in 1985 and Depeche Mode in 1988, before finally disintegrating. Now for the first time ever, rare unreleased versions of Hard Corps tracks from the 1980s have been remastered and are being made available. Clean Tables Have To Be Burnt is a 180 gram vinyl pressing limited to 999 copies with double sided innersleeve featuring a beautiful group shot and all of Regine's lyrics.
