Michal Turtle - Music From The Living Room LP


Getting on Mutant Sounds territory now. As the title suggests, these are home-made recordings by a certain Michal Turtle. Experimental synth weirdness, mostly instrumental except for 'Village Voice' that has female vocals by Laura. 'Jeka' is the odd one here as it sounds more like a reggae tune.
Couldn't find much info on Michal Turtle but when submitting this release on Discogs, someone else added this release in his collection and it is no one else but Michael (real name) himself. He lives in Münchenstein, Switzerland now and is a member of Dust, together with Jessica Knoll.
This album is really hard to get probably of Shout Records folding. So I think not many copies were pressed.

Oliver, have some tracks of Paranoia on those Rot comp. albums. Desperately seeking their album but it hardly pops up. Great stuf indeed.
Will check the MySpace pages.

Mick said...

It's in the archives somewhere Mick. Use the search thing on top of the page.

Hello Michal, thanks for dropping by. Just wish some people would drop a comment of what they think about the album. All the best.

I found it so great that I bought the LP on eBay (and received it today).
Thanks

Curious Guy said...

That's great. hardly turns up for sale so praise yourself lucky.

Played Village Voice in the living room, and my friends and I simply stopped all conversation while the last minute or so of the song played. Like something beautiful and radiant emerging from a deep, terrifying well.

Thank you very much for this.
