Peripheral Minimal is proud to present, 'V/A Prophecy + Progress: UK Electronics 1978 – 1990 LP', a thirteen-track compilation that represents the burgeoning Electronic music scene in the UK.This isn't simply another synthpop compilation, or some nostalgic frippery, but an eclectic mix of acts that were experimenting with newly available technology at a time when the punk scene had imploded and the music press was busy coining new genres as an attempt to continue its legacy (Although synth-pop in part arose from punk rock, it abandoned punk's emphasis on authenticity and often pursued a deliberate artificiality, drawing on the critically derided forms such as disco and glam rock. Although electronic experimentation had been explored in the decades before, it was still considered 'alien', "eerie, sterile, and vaguely menacing", and even downright, 'austere and fascisistic'. It may have taken the likes of Gary Numan or Depeche Mode et al to switch the record buying public to synthesizer music, but bubbling underground were a myriad of experimenters recording in relative secrecy in Industrial cities like Sheffield or post-war London, at a time when the Tories came back into power and utterly altered the political landscape, and produced a generation of, 'Thatcher's Children' (selfish, arrogant and materialistic). The antidote seemed to be quiet rebellion in the shape of dark and alienating soundscapes by acts that are now considered 'pioneers', or achieving cult status, in a new era of throwaway pop and trite 'new wave' impersonators.Many of the acts herein will be familiar with followers of synth or industrial music, some perhaps lesser known. We've also included slightly 'later' works by artists that were already firmly established in the early 80s as a comparison, and for the pure arrogance of it. It's an attempt to rekindle those heady days of experimentation and to encourage new generations to rebel and forgo the fashionable posturing that comes with anything vaguely 'interesting'.Limited to 500 copies with printed inner-sleeve.

Peripheral Minimal is proud to present, collated for the first time, all three of Naked Lunch's 7" singles, repackaged into a stunning 12" E.P., with printed inner sleeve. Naked Lunch are an English band formed in 1979, by Tony Mayo. Later joined by, Mick Clarke. In preparation to play live further members were advertised for and Tim Yorke, Paul Nicholas Davies and Cliff Chapman joined and then, in 1981, by Mark Irving who replaced Tim. The band was one of the first fully synth based groups, and as such were featured on the Some Bizzare Album alongside, Depeche Mode, Soft Cell, Blancmange and The The. A brief history of the band includes the fact that as early as 1979 they performed in a show alongside the likes of Deutsch Amerikanische Freundschaft, Cabaret Voltaire, Fad Gadget, B-Movie and Clock DVA, organised by the band and Stevo Pearce (Some Bizzare Records). The band undertook the Naked Lunch's 'Electronic Indoctrination Tour' in 1980 which included a show at Leeds Futurama Festival. Naked Lunch then set about helping Pearce find artists and recordings to make up the Some Bizzare Album to which the band itself contributed "La Femme" (a song originally called "Le Femme" but Phonogram who released the album was licensed to change it to the grammatically correct French, missing the point of the androgyny of the electronic music scene and that the song was about that). After a parting with Pearce, Naked Lunch became managed by Ramkup with the now 'infamous' single, "Rabies" being released, though it suffered from a ban on daytime radio play due to the title, it received good airplay and support from the likes of John Peel and Nicky Horne on their nighttime shows. Line-up changes continued before the band split in 1981 with Mayo retaining the name Naked Lunch. A second version of the band emerged as a live act until 1985. Naked Lunch were then resurrected in 2010 and continue to this day!

Slovenska Televiza is a minimal electronics duo based in Valladolid and Barcelona. Wladyslaw Trejo and Lunademayo stay close to coldwave, then expand to avant-garde and experimental approaches, reaching a proposal as strange as it is fascinating. It must be said that Slovenska Televiza is not only limited to the musical arena, its commitment extends to other artistic facets as already shown with their very special debut, a performative action implemented in Latvia, where they traveled to leave behind the entire output in several locations.

Coming to Peripheral Minimal is a classic of the synth-pop scene (at the time received criticism for alleged lack of emotion and musicianship), that exploded into the glare of the music press and into the bedrooms of thousands of trendy teenagers in the UK at the tail end of the 1970s and early 1980s. A time when technology was rapidly becoming affordable for the plethora of part-time synth addicts and electronic experimenters.V-Sor,X (pronounced VEE-SORE-EX), originate from the midlands town of Lichfield (known as, rather disturbingly, 'field of the dead', in Latin!), an important (historically speaking) but unremarkable place. Founded in 1979 as a vehicle for Morgan Bryan, who influenced by the post-punk protagonists and the new-wave of electronic musicians, formed a band.Here we present the first single by, 'V-Sor,X' entitled, 'Authors 2', originally released in 1982 on DOX Music, in a very limited edition of 300. The single commands prices of almost £100 on Discogs, and is a highly collectable artifact of an era of experimentation that perhaps no longer exists in today's world of instantaneous downloads and ridiculously expensive LP re-issues in almost (it seems) unlimited quantities.
