Clan Destine have announced the release of a new tape by Montreal-based minimal synth duo Spastic Joy (Menes and Rubin Vitriol). Here are details from Clan Destine about the tape and a video for one of the tracks ‘the Mission’ made by Ela Olreans for the release:
“The pro dubbed tape is limited to 100 copies. 8 tracks of synth punk gothic minimalism from weird canada, with distinctive duo vocals. All the tracks were mixed by Xavier Paradis (Automelodi) and mastered by Carl Clandestine. The tape also includes an amazing cover of minimal synth classic ‘Hello/Goodbye’ by Modern Art.
It is available to buy here.
Ela Olreans described the video, which she made, as such
“The video is a tribute to filmmaking twins George and Mike Kuchar – maestros of B-movie glamour and sleaze who have proudly marched in step with the consumer-grade vanguard for over fifty years until George’s recent death (three days after completion of this video). Kuchars’ brilliantly insane, no-budget movies of 1960′s New York City underground inspired Movies for Ears (aka Ela Orleans) to create an apocalyptic illustration for ”The Mission” by Canadian duo – Spastic Joy.”
