Mute to re-release more ground breaking material…

News is reaching us here at LTW Towers that one of our favourite labels; Mute Records are planning
a number of significant re-releases over the coming months.

First up in late June will be the Cabaret Voltaire ”˜Johnny Yes No ”“ Redux’ DVD.

Cabaret Voltaire provided the soundtrack to the film initially released in 1983 on their own Doublevision imprint. The soundtrack has was re-released on CD (Grey Area/Mute) in 1990, but this will be the first time the full cinematic release has been made available on DVD.

In September electronic pioneers Can, will release as yet untitled new material, this will be followed shortly after (November) by a vinyl only box set, which will be available to pre-order.

And just to excite you even more”¦ Mute are to release a Clock DVA vinyl box set in November. At this early stage there are no finalised details as to the material being compiled, or even a working title.

That matters not, we here at LTW are already very excited and are saving our pennies accordingly.

Each release will be the subject to a LTW review

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
