"Clock DVAs first release came on Throbbing Gristle's Industrial Records in the form of the "White Souls in Black Suits" cassette in 1980.The album itself is a raw pre-amble prior to the Formation of Thirst. Taken from fifteen hours(!) of improvisational sessions, a five member version of DVA recorded the sessions via a mobile recording unit.The album was mixed and produced at Cabaret Voltaire's Western Works studio,and includes a tape montage sequence in collaboration with Chris Watson. Richard H Kirk and Stephen Mallinder engineered and co-produced in collaboration with DVA." (Die or DIY 1 write up from 2009)
What a fucking boring write up!....I must have lazily cut and pasted this from somewhere else? I apologise and normal service will be resumed on the next post.
However, on the deleted version of this blog, This tape was one of the DCMA complaints that got me kicked off the web by the 'Arseholes in black suits.
I got all this backed up so go on and delete me again ,it'll all be back on the interweb the next day!
Never liked Clock DVA anyway. Didn't they go sort of disco later on?
ps, Has anyone got a digital copy of communist Czechoslovakia’s official state 'Soul' group ; The Flamingo Group's album from about 1970, called,and this has to be the best album title of all time or what(?)....."This is Our Soul".....wow!
I picked that up for FREE if i bought another album from Ultima Thule in Leicester;can't remember what i bought, but this stole the limelight somewhat.
Fucking lost it didn't I?....so help.
Oh yeah.....here's Clock DVA....Yawn!
(Update...relax everyone.I have now found another copy of "This is Our Soul").
