Interview with Other Voices Records!

Other Voices Records is both an independent label and a mail-order from Russia, rising from the ashes of the pioneering post-industrial/ambient label Tantric Harmonies. It was first titled Intuition Records but was later renamed. Musically, they don’t limit themselves to genres, the only requirements are that you should be a creative artist. The name itself is derived from a classic post-punk song by The Cure, and a homage to both the band and that particular song. There’s much going on in means of productiveness and their releases are featured as downloadable, CD, tape and vinyl. Which gives a good range to the releases. Artists and bands featured on this label is everything from Nagamatzu to Venus In Furs. With that said, they’ve got a wide range of genres represented on their label. I took some time to interview Oleg from this label, both about the releases but also the history of the label as a whole and much more.

Invisible Guy recommends: 80s Post-Punk – 1988-1989 (Part VI)

I’ve been through with you in the 80′s now in about six parts, four parts were about new wave and two parts were about minimal wave. Now, because of popular demand (not really), I’ve decided to unleash the post-punk monster. It will feature six different parts, whereas each one of them will concentrate on important years. I will walk you through a decade of important music, I could almost call it the golden years of post-punk. The parts will go on like this: Part I, 1980-1981. Part II, 1982. Part III, 1983-1984. Part IV, 1985. Part V, 1986-1987. And finally: Part VI, 1988-1989. Hopefully you’ll enjoy this madness, featuring (mostly) obscure or unknown bands in this sphere. New for this recommendation will be that I have different commentaries under each video, some of them are humorous and others are not. It will cover the basic aspect of each video or text. Enjoy this one.

You’re now entering Part VI of the recommendation.
