Unkommuniti members, Vincent Van Hire and Moonboy, were and still are The Kallous Boys.
To lazily quote from their porkweasel site(click here):
"Kallous Boys- Synth Geeks, BleepFreaks, Drum Machine Junkies the delectable talents of Vincent Van Hire and Moonboy. Power Electronic Pioneers with the Unkommuniti. Released Cassettes on Black Dwarf in the Eighties as part of the burgeoning Cassette Culture. Grew up to the sound of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and Delia Derbyshire. Fell in love with the sound of Sheffield, The Human League and Cabaret Voltaire. Soaked up everything from Industrial to IDM, the sounds of Berlin, Detroit and Chicago. Analogue to Digital and back to the old tools."
Definitely from the Portion Control end of Industrial Electronics are Kallous Boys.
Lots of vintage warm analogue electronica, with hints of commodore 64 game soundtracks, and a bit of Ambient for good measure.
A pleasure to listen to and surprisingly steers clear from that Noise dead end that many Industrial/Power Electronics pioneers found themselves stuck in, with nowhere to go. The Kallous Boys dare to be minimal, maybe out of necessity, but it worked. The space allows those wonderfully fat(without a 'Ph') sounds to breath without being suffocated by the boredom of extreme electronic Noise.
