Anne Clark - Wordprocessing. The remix project (cd ripped, mp3 320).1997. Re-upload

 
Anne Clark (born 14 May 1960 in London), is an excellent poet and songwriter. Her first album, The Sitting Room, was released in 1982, and she has released over a dozen albums since then.

Her experimental music occupies a region bounded roughly by electronic, dance (techno applies on occasion) and possibly avant garde genres, with varying hard as well as romantic and orchestral styles.

Clark is mainly a spoken word artist. Many of her lyrics deal critically with the imperfections of humanity, everyday life, and politics. Especially in her early works she has created a gloomy, melancholy kind of atmosphere. 
This wonderfull album includes some of her best songs remixed by famous names of electronic music like Sven Vaeth, Juno Reactor, Total Eclipse etc. The most tender moments mix with hard electronic beats creating magical soundscapes.
This is a piece of pure art and one the most beautifull albums i've ever heard!

The Mission U.K. - Aura (cd ripped, mp3 320). 2001.

   Aura is the ninth studio album by The Mission. After some goth pop albums that failed to earn the goth fans, the band returns with a pure gothic rock album.


With the spirit of "Serpent's Kiss" playing around its intro guitars, and an anthemic quality that cannot be ignored, the opening "Evangeline" insists from the outset that the reborn Mission are not here to simply make up the numbers.


Aura sounds like the greatest-hits album that never was, a succession of brilliantly conceived ghosts that reassemble all the Mission's proudest moments, then fashion something dynamically new and pure from them. True, "Cocoon" does glance in the direction of the Cure for its bassline, and "(Slave To) Love" wallows in that same discomfortingly sexually implicit trough as Masque's "Heaven Sends You". From start to finish, it's The Mission back at the starting post. (from Allmusic).



Enjoy this excellent work of gothic art here

Girls Rewrite Rock (various artists). A cd compilation of female greek groups.(cd ripped, mp3 320). 1997

This compilation came out along with Voice magazine at 1997 and it includes some of the best dark, post punk and independent music bands of Greece, all with female singers or members.

This cd is very hard to find and most of the tracks are previously unreleased.


What i like most in this compilation is the bands who have a dark sound like Ding An Sich, Forward Music Quintet, Blue Birds Refuse to Fly. But the real gem is Petunia Pig an almost all-girl band from Patra with a unique pop-punk sound. They never had a record but they still are one of the best greek bands ever (in my opinion)!
