Emotional Rescue returns to the the work of remix specialists extraordinaire, Razormaid, with a special collection of their remixes of cold wave / dark wave synth band, Psyche. Featuring unreleased, re-edited and remastered versions of some of the bands most club-based tracks on one EP for the first time. Formed in 1982 in Edmonton, Canada by Darrin and Stephen Huss out of love of the new electronic sounds emanating out of Europe, Psyche soon forged their own path. Influenced by the industrial and post-punk sounds of bands like Killing Joke and Alien Sex Fiend, as well as the synth pop melodies of groups like Soft Cell and Yazoo, the brothers help precipitate the start of darker electronic "goth" sound. Following the success of their self released debut, Insomnia Theatre, ripples across the water in Europe led to it subsequently being picked up and rereleased by French label New Rose. Coming to Paris in 1986 to record the follow up, Unveiling The Secret, they heard that San Francisco based edit / remix protagonists Razormaid had created a re-edit of the title single for one of their own DJ tool compilations. Liking what they heard, a deal was strike allowing future tracks to come under the remixers scalpel and special versions created from the master recordings. With this came a new remix of Unveiling The Secret and also, early single, Prisoner Of Desire, with both only appearing on the increasingly sought after Razormaid DJ series. Impressed with the results, Joseph Watt was then commissioned to work his mixing desk skills on the band's follow up 12". Included here, Watt's classic "US Club Mix" of Eternal is the perfect marriage of Psyche's poppier elements with Razormaid's mastery of finding the groove. This is backed with the tougher, throbbing - and never released on 12" before - "Alcatraz Mix" retake of Prisoner Of Desire. On the reverse sees the collaboration between Psyche and Razormaid continue today with a specially reworked version of Watt's re-edit of Unveiling The Secret. Additional arranging by Darrin Huss sees the lyric and structure return to that of the original album version to unique effect. To close is the specially extended mix of Ecstasy from the Intimacy album - which itself was produced, edited and mixed by Joseph Wyatt - a version only ever released on Razormaid DJ Promo until now!

Release:1983 / US – Reissue
Genre:Pop
At the end of 1981, brothers Darrin and Stephen Huss and schoolmate Dwayne Goettel performed for the first time as Psyche in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Their live show was a combination of horror and electronics that was completely unprecedented in Western Canada. Although Goettel and the Huss brothers parted ways before Psyche was to release any material, the masters containing Dwayne Goettel’s performances were preserved in the band’s vaults.Now, 19 years after Goettel’s untimely passing in 1995, Dark Entries records presents “Re-Membering Dwayne”, the original Psyche-Dwayne Goettel sessions. All tracks were recorded and mixed on 4-track during a single day in March of 1983. Psyche’s early material is visceral and abrasive, a far cry from the sleek, dark synthpop they’d later become known for. Like the body horror films of fellow Canadian David Cronenberg, Psyche disquietingly conflate the organic and the mechanical, calling into question the limits of the human form. Dwayne, who would join Skinny Puppy a few years later, contributes heavily to this more aggressive, disturbing sound.All songs have been remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP includes a 12-page booklet with excerpts from Darrin Huss’ diary, unpublished photos of Psyche with Dwayne, and an essay by Darrin reflecting on Psyche’s past and the Goettel legacy as well as lyrics. This collection is a glimpse at the early Canadian industrial scene and the roots of Skinny Puppy. Go take a walk in the past with an ear for the future; you just might learn something.
