CAR CRASH SET CD pressing problem announcement

I am speechless about the fact that the Join The Car Crash CD (ANNA 016) has reached us with multiple errors. For some unknown reason yet, tracks are missing, some are included twice, track order is wrong, making the CD unsellable at this point. We are now clearing the issue and will need to press new CDs as soon as possible. I hope for your understanding and little more patience.

The Proxies and Ultra Arcanum CDs are perfectly fine.

ANNA 058/MR-063   MONOPOL   Weltwelt (1982)   LP re-issue

Oh Yeah! We are REALLY excited to finally announce we are teaming up with our lovely friends Medical Records LLC to co-release another essential piece of the Minimal Synth-NDW puzzle with the reissue of 1982's Monopol "Weltweit", in Anna's humble opinion THE best Minimal Synth-NDW LP ever - highly crafted analog synth-driven dark electronic pop songs using the classic Roland TR-808 drum machine, and brilliant lyrics. This will come out in February (along with our Elegant Divide release on Nadanna - indie label for minimal synth, Italo disco, and electropop).

Originally from Tokyo, Japan, he relocated to New York in the early 90's where he worked as an audio engineer for recording production companies, and where he found musically kindred spirits at the Brooklyn based Wierd Records' parties (Epée Du Bois, Led Er Est, Martial Canterel, Sleep Museum, Xeno & Oaklander, etc.). His highly acclaimed debut EP was released on WT Records in 2012 and now Nadanna is proud to release NAO KATAFUCHI's debut full time album "Émergence". If features contributions from Liz Wendelbo (Xeno and Oaklander), and the shiny stars of Japanese electropop and minimal synth/wave Tomo Akikawabaya, Tona Ohama and Kevin Komoda (Rational Youth).

April 29, 2015:

A letter of appreciation, and gratitude.


I have always run the label with a (maybe too) personal note, with both artists and customers, and I  have been working with a lot of artists over the past 15 years or so. I have made made great friendships, and I have become, very much unfortunately, enemies with a few people, too. I have always tried my best, but I have oftenly failed to achieve the best (e.g. in terms of economic success, for the bands). In a very particular case now, I (and no one else) have – due to various reasons – ’delayed’ a release for like more than three years. It was never intended, but behind the scenes, there was often other obligations, personal issues, great despair, depression, just to name a few.... But over all those long lasting days, the band has never expressed the slightest grudge, neither insults nor turning their back on me... So, all that I am saying is that I’ve learned a lesson from those three gentle souls, Andi, Götz, and Joa (and I need to add Flemming from another project who’s been waiting long again now, too). Kindness, patience and trust are virtues to/I do belief in and they showed it to me in real life with all honesty (while I shall believe it was hard for them, within the band itself, and ’defending’ themselves before third parties).

Andi - Götz - Joa

I do thank you for his, now and forever. 

Warmest best wishes, 
Marc

∼ NADANNA ∼
new label for minimal synth, Italo disco & electropop

Dear valued customers of Anna Logue Records & Electro Aggression Records (& now NADANNA),

the debut album of the mega-talented Italo Disco/Dark Synthpop Greek act 23rd Underpass is slated for an early September 2014 release on NADANNA (NADA 1). It will mark the first collaboration between two very passionate indie label owners, Mr. EAR (Nader, EAR) & Mr. ANNA (Marc, Anna Logue Records). Nader and I are fully committed to eliminating boundaries between minimal synth, italo disco & electropop. We don't FOLLOW trends - we MAKE them!

January 28, 2014:

Hi everyone, I'm sorry for the following message, the


mail order/shop is temporarily closed



I learned there is too much on my plate and I just cannot follow up no more while additional orders just pile up and cause me a lot of more stress, at both the mind and the body. Actually, I do feel I'm close to collapsing if I don't make a cut at some end. I understand I do not have to justify myself, but I also do understand some people's frustration, and also concerns. Here's an excerpt of basic work I do: full time day job, having a family and 21 dogs that I've hardly seen lately, trying to run and push forward a record label (incl. all its bureaucratic paper works) and own band projects, too. Apart from that we were in need of a total restoration of a complete house incl. electricity which uses up the complete weekend with hard physical work which is again stressing my health condition..., so when to rest and relax? Or even think of enjoying myself with family or music?



So, I will work down all orders and other piled up work (there is plenty), until this is completely done, I will not accept any new orders, apart from pre-orders on the Twins Natalia box set (name gender and shirt size!).



Also, please note: in the future I will not be willing/able to respond to the question if I will get this or that certain record into the mail order/shop, please do only order what's available. Do not be offended, please, when I just will not reply on this one.



Writing this message was like a pain, but also a huge relief, one huge burden off my shoulders for the time being - I do hope you understand, and hope to talk again after me seeing clear and having recouped some energy.



Best wishes

Marc

Press bits:
“Nostalgia fuelled pop harking back to the heyday of Factory Records, Isaksson’s material is deeply romantic with a deft production slight of hand that can single-handedly break your heart and indeed heal it in one fell swoop.” The Line Of Best Fit (UK)
“The best electro-pop record in recent memory.” Blurt Magazine (USA)
“His touch is tender and light, and the album’s best songs always swing to the sky, riding up on decades of learning from drum machines and tangled relationships” The Fader (USA)

for Dec. 21 which makes us happy as now it is matching the winter solstice date as planned.

Please go to the Releases section for details.

Anna would like to express her gratitude to the guys from Dödsdans Rekords, e.g. Mattias, for the absolutely flawless, productive and very entertaining/funny co-operation on the PA TRONIC record. Without Mattias it would not see the light of day today. So, it was a tremendous pleasure to work with you and Anna is ready for the next project whenever you call for her.

The digital versions of
ANNA 044 THE SILICON SCIENTIST Inselwinter
are scheduled as follows:
 Dec. 21 on bandcamp (one exclusive bonus track)
- the release has been specifically scheduled for the winter solstice 2012 
and should be played especially when dear Old Man Winter is around -
The CD version - with seven exclusive bonus tracks - is scheduled for Jan. 1st, 2013, so that the new year gets off to a good start!

Then Anna also wants to express her gratitude to all Anna Logue Records team members, the bands, the customers - some in particular but you know who you are -, colleagues and business partners and any other well-wishers and supporters who made this year another success and fun but also a lot of work. It has been really hard at times and the body or physiology don't obey the mind no more at any time, but there is still a fire of life flaring in Anna's body, so a Merry Christmas to all of you - make it a egan holidays if you can, and we all know that you can - and off to a new year 2013!

While ANNA 041, 043 and 045 are being pressed in this very moment, Anna and Stefan/THE SILICON SCIENTIST have just agreed on sweetening your this year's Christmas with his previously unreleased album "Inselwinter" from 2002/03, a beautiful melancholic instrumental album to dream to. "Inselwinter I & II" were already featured on the "Bookmarks II" CD, but now you will get the full set comprising a total of seven songs and running 60 minutes (as the downloadable bandcamp option). The minimalistic, yet beautiful CD version will feature some bonus material from around the album's recording sessions.

August 20, 2012:

Oh well, vacations are a thing of the past, and Anna did not manage at all to achieve what she had planned or scheduled, so sorry and apologies to the bands and fans out there for keeping you waiting for so long! At least, the mail order catalogue has been stockpiled and updated and finally two lovely new vinyls from Anna Logue Records and Attractive Coordinates are being released today:

ANNA 033 TWINS NATALIA/MARSHEAUX Radial Emotion/When We Were Young 7"
ATCO LP1 THE PHONE Songs For This Nuclear Age LP

Please refer to the Releases section for further details, audio links and prices.

About the
ANNA 005 THE SILICON SCIENTIST Windows on the World/Colourblind (+2)  CD
Well, it should be with us, but ... the band and Anna are really puzzled about the fact that it has been available from the other label since May 25 while neither the band nor Anna have seen or held a single copy of it in our hands yet. So after almost exactly three months post production we are told that a few copies shall be with us by next week while the second major batch is somewhere in Europe, with the third batch probably still in Russia... so let's see and so much for co-operations and stuff, but let me tell that Swedish people are cool and there is still a glimpse of hope!

THE KLINGONS tape on Crispy Nuggets blog - that's alright!

The amazing Crispy Nuggets blog has - with the band's and Anna's blessing - uploaded the (second edition version) the THE KLINGONS Analog - Digital tape from '82 which is subject to vinyl re-issue later this year on Anna Logue Records (Anna 044). THE KLINGONS were Al Robertson (aka 100% MAN MADE FIBRE) and Mario D'Agostino (aka DICK TRACY), from Glasgow, Scotland. Tape originally released on Synthetic Tapes, then re-issued on YHR, both scarce as hell. Please take your chance on this amazing minimal synth electronica album, and please buy the vinyl product then, remastered by Mario himself with amazing artwork bits from the first edition tape. Many thanks to Crispy Nuggets for informing and asking for approval and supporting the contemporary labels.
P.S. Yes, Anna is planning 100% MAN MADE FIBRE and DICK TRACY releases as well! :)

Belated back from vacation update and Release news

Unfortunately, it took Anna a few days more to get back to work, but who can blame her when Spring is knocking on her door asking me to play with the outdoors' sunbeams while gardening is her greatest pleasure these days. Nonetheless, the mail order section has now been updated and a few invoices and parcels have been sent, so please be a little bit more patient in case it wasn't your turn yet.

Anna is happy to announce that Stefan / THE SILICON SCIENTIST has just finalized the master and last artwork bits for the remastered digipak CD version of the 2006 album "Windows on the World" which is to be released in association with Other Voices Records. Also THE SILICON SCIENTIST is supposed to appear with the new track "Pictures" on an upcoming US compilation along with a track from DELAYSCAPE.

Anna has still no news of arrival regarding the TWINS NATALIA/MARSHEAUX split single at the Greek co-operation label. In the meantime we are still working hard on the TWINS NATALIA/POEME ELECTRONIQUE split 12" and TN album.

As for next week, Anna has made the ANNA 037 TREK WITH QUINTRONIC CD a priority and hopes to have it a the manufacturer the week after - please rememeber that now every months' first week is label work only, no mail order.

New ordering and shipping policy

Due to some developments at Anna Logue Records and its related musical genres, as of now, every month's first week will be completely reserved for Anna working on her own upcoming releases. Due to the massive amount of releases in the relevant genres lately, Anna has been busy only by doing mail order related stuff since months, but Anna's time (and energy) on working on the label and mail order is rather limited (the working days' leisure time to be exact), and to be frank, she actually never wanted to be a worker at a mail order but a creative mind at a record label. In other words, this means that orders will not be worked on at all in that one week. Anna hopes for your understanding, but being frustrated, exhausted and putting her bands off is not what a label's work should look like.

Regarding shipments, as of now, Hermes parcels can still be sent on a daily basis, while Deutsche Post/DHL and GLS letters and parcels will be sent only once per week on Saturdays. Also here, Anna asks for your understanding, but shipping every here and there is way too time-consuming and also cost-intensive.

MICK MILK "Half Lives" LP+7" (& digital versions) out March 1, 2012 &
the tale of Anna exploring the digital realm: "Anna at Bandcamp"

Due to various reasons Anna decided not to wait any longer for the other two upcoming releases
(Anna 033 and 037), but to finally release

ANNA 038   MICK MILK   Half Lives (1982/83)   LP+7"EP



next week, on March 1. It has not only become a tremendously beautiful overall package (check detailed info and release features here) including ace sound quality, but also marks the start of Anna experiencing the world of digital download possibilities. Yes, Anna always pointed out that she was never against this, but only time was her enemy. In the end, Anna believes that the music shall be made officially available to everyone and at any time, Anna is not a dictator when it comes to format (but indeed her heart will ever belong to the wonderful physical formats which challenge her creativity and satisfy her passion, so vinyl lovers do not worry!). Anyway, Anna has decided to start small scale while still keeping things under her control, therefore a site at bandcamp was created:

http://annaloguerecords.bandcamp.com


with a few first bands from the roster joining Anna at camping with the latest releases:
Mick Milk, Beograd, Passion Polka, Red Fetish, Paul Chambers, Delayscape, The Silicon Scientist. Most of the uploads will be there for pre-view and sales purposes while some others will only have a pre-view function (e.g. if other download possibilities exist like with Poeme Electronique, or whatever). Anna will talk to the other bands as soon as possible and try to provide you with more digital releases from the back catalogue then. Nice imagination seeing you walking through the spring-time fields with our beloved music entertaining you from your preferred mobile devices, hehehe....
so, onwards to new (ad)ventures!

OVIFORMIA SCI: case closed

Luis Prosper kindly clarified on 30.01.12, 11.20 pm on his facebook site:
"Marc Shaffer de Anna Logue Records me asegura que nunca ha tenido ningún tipo de vinculación
con el NPD. Me congratulo de que así sea y pido disculpas públicamente por haber hecho caso a rumores sin contrastar la información."

That translates to: Marc Shaffer of Anna Logue Records assures me he has never had any connection with the NPD. I am delighted that so and publicly apologize for making unsubstantiated rumors in this case without having verified the information.

Hopefully my last comment on OVIFORMIA SCI album

Here is to present this very 'fine' man with whom I was dealing who is now passionately starting to spread wonderful lies about Anna Logue Records and me on his facebook site: 


First, please note, I did not see that "Teletipo" video before I read that, and I never used or thought of the words "Entartete Kunst" in any way. Second, he links me and my label to a march of the German Neo-Nazi right-wing party NPD saying music by Ultima Thule, "a group on vegan record label Anna Logue Records". HAHAHA, he makes me laugh, he is very 'creative'... please read our last conversation we had below and make up your own mind.... Indeed though, I wish those dealing with him in the future a good lack of honour, grace, empathy, honesty and stuff as otherwise I assume you will not be able to bear with him.

M.S.: (23.11.11 00.35)
hello Clara and German,
with some sadness i need to inform you that today i decided not to proceed with releasing an Oviformia SCI lp/cd album on my record label. in a public discussion on facebook, where Luis has confirmed that he is supportive of and thus obviously liking and enjoying bullfighting (corrida de toros). for me as being supportive of 'animal rights', this is an unacceptable cruel attitude. therefore i cannot and do not want to work and support anyone with this attitude.

L.P.: (23.11.11 00.51)
I'm really sorry. I respect your religion.

M.S.: (23.11.11 01.17)
there is no need to say sorry to ME. with your attitude and actions
you are responsible for totally unnecessary pain, torture and cruel
death of fellow beings of our earth. you could only ask them for
forgiveness. i do not have any respect left for you. i only wished you
would think about this, re-consider your attitude and change yourself
to good with empathy for other beings, and as you say, apart from
nature and animals, this also includes humans, of course.

L.P.: (23.11.11 01.33)
I didnt know you were a fundamentalist. Just one question, are all of the artists at Anna Logue vegans? I have the feeling that some of them wear leather. You should take care of that too. 

M.S.: (23.11.11 01.51)
of course, not all are vegans. you can do the maths yourself how the percentage of vegans in a western society looks like, so it'd be tricky to run a label with vegan co-workers, artists and customers only. please note that after discussions with me, three of the early 80's artists, thus they are exactly your age, changed their eating behaviour from decreasing meat consumption to going almost vegetarian to going vegan. this is a great success for me.and all artists so far supported my aims and support the label's connection to animal protection/animal rights projects. please understand that while i refuse to accept any animal torture, there is certainly a varying degree of cruelty, and abusing, torturing and killing an animal (or human) just for fun and entertainment is for sure the worst of all! i would love love to ask you if you agree to that, but already you confirmed that for you it is okay and that you even support this. people even cheering to that is beyond my imagination and acceptance. therefore, i think i do not project a sort of fundamentalism on others but only upon myself, but in this very aspect (fun and entertainment), yes, there is no room for discussion.

L.P.: (23.11.11 09.43)
Fun and entertainment is pop music. Including electronic music. Bullfighting is ART.

M.S.: (23.11.11 10.16)
i cannot believe how ignorant you are, you did not understand anything i said.
all i said would also apply for any sort of art, and i cannot go on "discussing" with you when coming up with such idiotic nonsense.

OVIFORMIA SCI album release cancelled

With some sadness I need to inform you that today I decided not to proceed with releasing an Oviformia SCI lp/cd album on Anna Logue Records. In a today's public discussion around midnight on facebook, one member has explicitly confirmed towards me that he is supportive of and thus obviously liking and enjoying bullfighting (corrida de toros), in other words the cruel killing of an innocent being that cannot stand a chance for the stupid cheering masses for entertainment and false glorification under the mask of cultural tradition. For me as being supportive of animal rights, this is an unacceptable cruel attitude. Therefore I cannot and do not want to work and support anyone with this attitude. Now, there will surely be other labels preying on them and maybe not caring about this, not having any sort of empathy. I will also boycott them once they have the blood of innocent beings on their own hands.

ADN' CKRYSTALL (Anna 013) and POEME ELECTRONIQUE (Anna 014) - 
2nd edition vinyls to come

ANNA 013   ADN' CKRYSTALL   Minilab   LP+7"

ADN’ CKRYSTALL is Érick Moncollin (aka Dr. Strange), an artist from France and truly a pioneer in electronic music since the mid-70’s. Already in 1976, he was jamming with Vangelis and Tim Blake in Paris, and he was also testing the KORG MS20 in its flat prototype version (and is still owning and using a MS10 prototype today!). In 1982, he released his first album “Jazz’mad” which definitely is in Anna’s Top-5-electronic-music-albums list. The unique weirdness and brilliance of this album is unequalled and a class of its own. Érick never stopped playing and recording electronic music, but, of course, styles changed over the years. In late 2006, “Jazz’mad” was nearing its 25 years anniversary, and thus Anna asked Érick if he wasn’t interested in recording a sister album to it - in “Jazz’mad” style, of course! Érick enthusiastically agreed and armed himself with his two Kawai Synthesizer-100Fs, Korg KR-33, CRB’1969 Diamond 742, Roland Juno-60, Roland JX-3P, MXR phaser 100, Boss Flanger BF-2 and SDE200 Delay. Paired with his weird performing skills, “Minilab” is a worthy companion to “Jazz’mad” and no-one into minimal electronics shall miss out on it.

Features: limited second edition of 108 copies, 160 grams black vinyl, full colour LP sleeve, 
b&w 7" sleeve, b&w labels, LP insert and 7" insert, two exclusive DIN A3 poster (one hand 
numbered, one not numbered), protective outer and inner sleeves for both LP and 7".
 Price: € t.b.a.



*********************************************************************************************************************

ANNA 014   POEME ELECTRONIQUE   The Echoes Fade/Voice   7"

POEME ELECTRONIQUE … oh didn’t we all dream of finding their only original 80's vinyl release, ‘The Echoes Fade/VOICE’ 7” single (Carrere Records, 1982) some day? Well, most of us didn’t and probably won’t, and finding the members was equally hard, but thanks to J. Lange’s investigative nature (hey, you’re great!), Dave Hewson, the composer in the group was finally tracked down. Dave is nowadays a highly respected professional composer working for such institutions like the EMI and BBC - probaby not the common career of an early 80’s New Wave/Electropop underground artist. Dave’s kindness and enthusiasm on reworking old POEME ELECTRONIQUE material and reviving the group was extraordinary, and so is his level of production quality. Now one might think that remixes are uninteresting or useless, but when you will hear the work that Dave did on the 7” tracks, you will surely get the impression that some improvement has occurred. The tracks just sound incredible, and now more versatile. For example, in ‘VOICE’, a chorus, though already written in 1982 but never used, has eventually been added and also the vocals have been completely rerecorded this summer. Truly, Sharon and Julie’s voices sound as fresh as 25 years ago! Anna is incredibly proud of releasing this record, and you know that this was not the end of the story!

Features: limited second edition of 127 copies, black vinyl, 2 colour sleeve, 2 colour labels 
and double-sided sheet with lyrics and additional infos, wo exclusive DIN A6 postcards (one 
hand numbered, one not numbered) protective outer and inner sleeve. 
Price: € t.b.a.

ANNA 033/7UN33 split 7" is also taking shape now

ANNA 033/7UN33   TWINS NATALIA/MARSHEAUX   Radial Emotion/When We Were Young 7"



Once that Greece's Synthpop heroines MARSHEAUX had spoken out loudly that "When We Were Young" by Anglo-German Electropop perfectionists TWINS NATALIA was the best song in 2008, they both have teamed up for a special double cover version 7 inch disc - TWINS NATALIA have covered MARSHEAUX's wonderful "Radial Emotion" (originally released on the "Lumineux Noir" album in 2009) and MARSHEAUX have done a stunning version of TWINS NATALIA's "When We Were Young" (originally released on the 7" of the same name in 2008). Prepare yourself for some wonderful melancholic and melodic electronic pop music.

BACK TO 1982/83: THREE NEW VINYLS RELEASES OUT NOVEMBER 2011

ANNA 034   RED FETISH   The Future Is Now In Your Hands   7"EP

The RED FETISH was a minimal electronic pop outfit founded by Neale Potts and Mike Richardson from Stoke-On-Trent, UK (both of ALL THE MADMEN fame) presenting here four classic minimal electronic synth pop hits recorded back in 1982/1983 using a rather minimalistic set-up comprising a Korg KR-55, Korg 770, Korg SD-900 and Yamaha CS-10. This one little beauty is especially for those into a more raw and unpolished analogue synth sound in the vein of early Neon Judgement, Neural Circus, Spotch Forcey and Transparent Illusion.


Features: limited edition, solid red vinyl, full colour UV varnished sleeve, full colour labels 
and double-sided postcard with lyrics and additional infos, mastered by A.P., Sleeve : Steve. 
Price: € t.b.a.

*********************************************************************************************************************

ANNA 035   PASSION POLKA   Obsessions EP   12"EP

PASSION POLKA was an electronic pop outfit founded by Steve Cottier (also in Scope, Xionics, Kinetics, Peep Show) and Keith Leary (also in Peep Show) in Liverpool, UK, presenting here four classic analogue electropop tracks from 1982/1983 in the vein of Camera Obscura, OMD or Oppenheimer Analysis, featuring the Roland TR-808 drum machine and a little armada of the usual synthesiser suspects made by ARP, Korg, Roland and Yamaha. They only released the impossible-to-find 'Obsession'/'Juliet' 7" single back in 1982 on their own Kinetic Rekords label. These tracks are now available again on Anna Logue Records' first 12" ever, remastered by Marc Senasac and with an addition of two beautiful and and previously unreleased 1983 tracks 'Lying next to You' and 'Fighting Alone' which feature Siobhan Maher (River City People, Kindred Spirit) on backing vocals. A must-have for all the aficionados of early 80's romantic electropop.


Features: limited edition, 180 grams black vinyl, b&w UV varnished sleeve with lyrics, 
b&w labels and DIN A2 poster, mastered by Marc Senasac, Sleeve : Steve. 
Price: € t.b.a.


*********************************************************************************************************************

ANNA 036   BEOGRAD   T.V.   7"EP

BEOGRAD was a electronic pop outfit founded by Dejan Stanisavljevic along with Aleksandar Rodic and Lubodrag Bubalo in Belgrade, Serbia, in the former Yugoslavia. In 1982 they released their one and only 7" single, the classic and highly sought-after minimal electro smasher 'T.V'/'Sanjas li u boji?', with its wonderful Roland CR-78 drum machine, manually played bass synth and high note sequences, lovely harmonies and Serbian vocals. Then, in 1983, their only LP 'Remek depo' was released. Anna Logue Records has now put together a nice 7"EP including both the original 7" tracks plus the superior track from the album, 'Mrak', as well as two very rough and pretty horrible sounding short instrumental demo recordings of 'T.V.' and 'Mrak', included here for the sakes of obscurity, rareness and fun. Definitely a must-have for all into minimal electro, synth wave, cold wave or whatever you wanna call it.

Features: limited edition, black vinyl, b&w UV varnished sleeve, b&w labels and double-sided 
postcard with lyrics (both Serbian and English), mastered by A.P., Sleeve : Steve. 
Price: € t.b.a.
