Cpinalonga is a dark ambient/electro duet from Greece. They released two LPs back in the '90's, "Bid Time Return" (1990, Poeta Negra records) and "The 13th relation" (1994).
"Their name has been borrowed by an island east of Crete. This little island has a long story of wars, conquests, Venetian castles that now seems totally haunted. Changed conquerors and names too, as in the ancient times it was called Kalidon, the Venetians named it Spinalonga (means "long thorn" in Latin).
The most recent shocking fact about Spinalonga is that it has been one of the last leper colonies in Europe in the years 1903-1957. It is said that the lepers used to enter this island by a gate called "Dante's Gate". Really imposing!!!" (from Ten Thousand eyes blog - in this post you can download both LPs from Cpinalonga).
Crete - Spinalonga, "Dante's gate". 1918.
This 7" vinyl single was released this year and it contains two previously unreleased songs. "Rachel" is recorded live. Both songs will impress anyone who loves dark electro!
