5 stars I just discovered Cultural Noise. Well, better late than never, but then with music this obscure, I'm not one bit surprised I never knew of these guys before. Cultural Noise is the only Austrian group I know of playing Berlin School electronic music (I know Paul Haslinger was Austrian, but he was a member of Tangerine Dream in the late '80s). Like Tangerine Dream of the mid '70s, these guys used sequencers, Mellotron, and analog synths. But they don't try to copycat the TD sound, even though the influence is a bit obvious. The sequencers tend to be more ominous, and this group has habit of abruptly stopping the sequencers unexpectedly (TD had a habit of fading them out when they want to give them a rest, obvious example being near the end of Rubycon) and going into weirder territory. Somewhere the band does a quote from Bach on the synth. I really love the mood these guys create. This album appeared in 1980 on CBS but the original LP is now very hard to find and expensive. It did go through a second pressing, released by the band themselves in 1981, but can be distinguished by a more generic black and white cover. I can't believe I still keep finding obscure and amazing electronic music. Right there with the likes of Zanov or Anna Själv Tredje (although Zanov has been recently getting much more attention than ever before thanks to his back catalog being reissued and brand new recordings from him) when it comes for great obscure electronic music. This album is truly worthy of your attention and clearly my favorite from 1980.
Thanks to historian9 for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
