The Valley Forge - Fit To Fall (1986)

The first of two 12" records released by this UK band. The 2nd record was posted by bX here, but since MegaUpload is now sleeping with the fishes, I've re-uploaded it for you here. Details on both records can be found in the reviews on their Discogs pages, presumably left by a former band member. Enjoy!

Track List:

A1 - Fit To Fall (The Mix)
B1 - Escape
B2 - Hope

Various - Incontinence (1984)

Easily one of the scarcest items to surface on this blog. This French cassette was limited to only 100 copies. Despite featuring the likes of well-known bands like Deux, this tape has gone mostly unnoticed. That should change quickly, as this one's rather impressive throughout. The best contributions are that of Collision Expérimentale and the Bauhaus-esque Avant Post, but every band here adds a little something... for everyone. Enjoy!

Track List:

A1 - Dada Neuf - Au Pays Du Coup De Soleil
A2 - Dada Neuf - Tuillage Évolutif
A3 - Deux - Game And Performance
A4 - Deux - Felicita
A5 - Collision Expérimentale - Dans Laid Couloirs
A6 - Collision Expérimentale - Fidêle-Castrè
A7 - Avant Post - The Squealing-Call
A8 - Avant Post - Pongs And Death
B1 - Leda Atomica - No Woman's Land
B2 - Leda Atomica - Etude Du "Houlala"!!!
B3 - Leda Atomica - Jailhouse-Rock
B4 - The Grief - The Torment
B5 - The Grief - Dirty Dance
B6 - Vision Baroque - Leslie
B7 - Vision Baroque - The Death ***
B8 - A Joyce Concept - Voices And Crys ***

*** One mp3, as the tracks run together

Joy Before The Storm - Silence Ever After (1985)

This LP has got to be one of the best US minimal synth obscurities. The album art represents the sound rather accurately, like looking through the window of a sad loner, just him and his analog instruments. Hah. The best track is most definitely "We're All Alone", but there are a few other gems littered in there as well. It's been extremely difficult to find any useful information regarding this record, I found some miscellaneous info on another US band by the same name, but there's no evidence they are linked. Info always appreciated. Enjoy!

Track List:

A1 - Attic Window
A2 - We're All Alone
A3 - These Things Happen
A4 - We Should Be Closer
A5 - Cheerleader
B1 - Shadow Of A Radio Tower
B2 - Walking On Air
B3 - Quiet Past
B4 - Westchester Siren
