Years On Earth ‎– "Worlds Apart" - (YOE-3) 1983


Shadowy minimal electronics from Years On earth's third self released cassette.
It really does sound like its beamed from a planet called 1983, with its unsynced arpeggiators and claustrophobic broom cupboard ambiance. Ghostly whispered vocals; done normally so as not to disturb mum and dad watching The Generation Game on TV of a Saturday evening. The only effect on offer seems to be a Tape echo of an unknown brand,regularly producing a slap back echo for the vocals and the cheap guitar stabs.Great hand played synth lines permeating acres of fuzzy space; a warning from the Industrial wastelands of the 1980's,when the UK was transforming into the Bank led credit vacuum we know and hate today.This is a fate that awaits all Industrial nations that followed;so listen and hear your futures beamed from a troubled past.
Check their earlier cassette "Site" HERE.

Lush and gorgeous. Possibly nsfw, I'm finding this debilitating in the best possible way.

Hi Ckovins,
I've noticed that from the compilation "The Structure of Chance" are missing the tracks of Side C (1st side of 2nd LP), with the songs from the K7 "Worlds Apart".
Any chance to post them?
Thank you.
Carlo

JZ! THis priceless music is non known to me until now!!! a million thanks to you and to Ckovins!!! Between this and Davey Williams my world has vastly improved since i have learned to D.I.M. daily!

Jonny Zchivago said...

Ah poor Davey's now left us, but at least 'we' still have years on earth.
I listen to all this shit while I work,and there are times when i get up out of my chair,hang up my active gas welding appliance, and check my iPod as to who exactly is playing. The most common are DAF's first album, 'Produkt',which unbelievebly great, that Esmectations album on Year Zero,(i got a shit memory for band names y'see!), and anything by Years On Earth!

i really have a love-hate relationship with frank maier of the vod label, because obviously as we know, pirating, specially from super underground independent artists like these is a terrible thing to do, the bastard doesn't make it easy even when you're trying in a honest way. lps are an outdated format for today's world, useful for a selected few who can afford the luxury, and honestly patience to mantain the habit. also, for wonderful music like this continues to be restricted to a smaller audience, unknown and unaprecciated
