The Story of The Shining Path began in 1982 when Peter Miller (aka Dr. William S Ray – vocals, tapes, guitar) met Andrew Millar (aka Maurice Spectograph the Nose-y Pieman – program execution) in Gold Coast, Australia. While sharing a similar taste in music, they decided to form a band, so Dive Position was born. Equipped with a Korg synthesiser and Tascam 4-track recorder, they “wanted to have the ‘sound’ of Kraftwerk, the groove of Can, and the ‘menace’ of Throbbing Gristle”, ending up with “a cross of Suicide and the Residents”, as Peter recalls. In a local record shop they met Stig Andre Leonardson (aka Vincent Blackshadow), who joined the duo on percussion and drum machine programming. Their motto was “Now is Then”. Dive Position then became The Fatal Charm around 1984, and The Fatal Charm became The Shining Path who eventually released their only album “Basic Training Manual” in an edition of only 250 copies, most probably in 1986. The band then started to drift apart, and shortly after Andrew sadly passed away – this re-issue of “Basic Training Manual” and the upcoming compilation “Now is Then” comprised of previously unreleased Dive Position and The Shining Path material is dedicated to his memory.
Proxies - Groovin Over Beirut
Groovin Over Beirut
2LP | 2016 | EU | Original (Anna Logue)
19,99 €*
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
This is a limited edition of approximately 300 copies on 140 grams black vinyl plus 6 unreleased bonus tracks and a UV laminated outer sleeve. As part of the emerging alternative rock/post-punk movement, Proxies was formed around 1978-79 in Thessaloniki, Greece, by Dimitrios Bitzenis (guitar), Jiannis Nastas (bass), George Pavlidis (lead singer), Manolis Trihakis (keyboards), and Lazaros Pliampas (drums). This formation got very well known locally by playing covers of Roxy Music, Talking Heads, Magazine, Devo, Television, Stranglers and other New wave bands. When Pavlidis left Greece, Nastas also left Proxies to form his own band, thus leaving Bitzenis behind as the new lead singer, guitarist and synth player, Trihakis on synth and bass, and with Pliampas still on acoustic drums. That formation almost got an contract with EMI but Xristos Vatseris (RIP), owner of the independent Thessaloniki based record company CVR, took Proxies under his wings so that they could keep control over their work. Eventually – in 1983 – their debut album “Groovin’ over Beirut“ was released, recorded at the CVR studio together with engineer Kostas Kosmatopoulos (RIP). Bitzenis and Trihakis then went to the UK to study and almost got signed to Virgin Records who loved their music. Unfortunately they had to return to Greece to do their military service and the dream was over. In 1984, Pliampas left the band and the second album “Eastern Side of Love“ was released. It featured a cover of the traditional Greek song “Fishing Boat“ which became a huge hit and made Proxies a well-known name all over Greece. Trihakis eventually left the group due to not agreeing to the musical direction Proxies was about to pursue. In 1991, Bitzenis released a new album together with his cousin Nikos Bitzenis (who later formed the band Mikro and co-founder of Undo Records), and a final album together with Marina Jele in 1994 before Proxies went quiet. This re-issue features a bonus LP with six previously unreleased tracks recorded between 1982 and 1985.
