Eirkti [Ειρκτή] Music Label
Έλαβα και με χαρά δημοσιεύω :
"Greetings to all you friends and music fans out there! Almost a year has passed since Eirkti signaled its presence within the 'independent music' terra and it is already
about to make a further move, realizing its further editions. However, before providing you with all the details concerning our forthcoming endeavors it seems necessary to review some of the important details with regard to our release-story so far. So let us all run together through the necessary details:
EirmaOl: Paralleles De Montsegur 7" "same-titled" single: Eirkti's first maximalistic release presents us with a French group from Montpellier called Paralleles de Monstegur. PdM which produced one single ('Fils de Rien') and a full Lp titled 'Esperit ' in the early 90s, disappeared quite suddenly. Nevertheless, they left an obvious mark mostly due to their unique ability of marrying a cold post punk sound with medieval aesthetic elements. Eirkti found out that the band had made a few additional songs right before it broke up. Therefore, it decided that those tunes should be made known to the public. Four intense tracks full of exemplified cold-wave guitars which altogether reveal the direction to which the group was heading after its first works. This is a limited release of 300 hand-numbered copies which should definitely be placed in every dark-wave record collection.
Copies still available!
Eirmi01: Die Bunker "Peut-Etre qu'il n'y a plus rien? 1983-1984" Lp: Eirkti positions itself within an absolute atmosphere of synthetic minimalism by finally releasing the long scarce tape material of Die Bunker. The tape which originally appeared in the early 80s was produced in 300 copies and became very soon one of the most collectable items. Moreover, this sound-material had few resemblances with the later on 'Dreams are not Free' (1988) and 'Mother' (1990) vinyl works which provided the group with recognition in the French and international dark wave scene. It would have been a real loss if those early compositions of DB weren't released on vinyl! Eirkti undertook a limited edition of 500 copies including all those astonishing tracks such as 'Wut', 'Annake' 'Kiste Gold' and others plus a bonus magnificent obscure composition 'In den letzten Zugen lieben' which
first appeared in the 'V.I.S.A. Presente' compilation back in 1984.
Do not miss this since copies get fewer and fewer!
Copies still available!
Eirmi02: Horis Perideraio "Horos Gia Mousiki' Lp: Horis Perideraio was one of the most underground nevertheless, prominent groups of the Greek 80s scene. Their sound was a combination of sophisticated new wave melodies and genuine, rapid minimal synth rhythms. After releasing a single in 1983 ('Anosi') they composed 'Horos gia Mousiki' Lp two years later. The Lp became an absolute rarity and it was more than impossible to find even in collectors' sects. Eirkti managed to re-release this magnificent piece of work in a limited edition of 500 copies which were accompanied by the original two-page insert. As soon as the news was spread mobilization was instant and now all copies have found their place in musical fans' record collections.
Copies sold out!
- And now regarding Eirkti's forthcoming projects we are really happy to announce the following:
Eirma02: Metro Decay "Keimilia (Treasures) / Skies (Shadows)" 7" single: Perhaps Metro Decay is the most important Greek new wave group that really made its way in the national 80s underground scene. Their uniquely constructed tunes as well as their profound Greek lyrics were two basic reasons why their presence seemed so important as well as promising during that period. Their long gone 7" single Keimilia / Skies forms an excellent paradigm of what new wave should sound like. Issued from the legendary Greek label 'Creep', way back in 1983 along with their first and only Lp 'Ipervasi' (1984) stigmatized that era's atmosphere and not only. Eirkti is about to re-release their first single including the aforementioned songs. 'Keimilia' and 'Skies' introduces listeners to a really haunting dark wave ambience with heavy loads of thoughtful inspiration like one which you've never heard before. This 7" single will be produced in 800 hand-numbered copies, dressed in a proper sleeve and accompanied by an insert with all necessary info. We will definitely be proud to play it wildly loud on our turntables as well as imagine that you will do the same!
Eirmi03: Alexandros "Data" Lp: Originally released from Alexandros' own label '80s Ways' in the mid eighties, 'Data' includes 8 tracks which are overall reminiscent of that era's ambience. Straightforward minimal electronic and synthetic wave tunes such as 'Hold Me Tight', 'Difficult Birth', 'Everybody wants some Love' and other offer a
pure taste of musical originality germane to the spirit by which the 80s dance-floors were besieged. ^ Data was the Lp following Alexandros' promising 7" single 'No Place To Run' released in 1983. As years went by, the Lp became more and more difficult to find till nowadays when it is considered beyond than rare. Our label decided it was high time to circulate this work for once more and fill an important 'hole' in a lot of people's collections. This will be a limited edition of 500 hand-numbered
copies dressed in an -as always- pure black & white sleeve.
Eirmi04: Brigade Internationale "Regard Extreme" Lp: Originally released in tape 25 years ago, it still remains one of the finest exemplars of the French coldwave scene. Brigade Internationale, an obscure act formed in 1982 really shook the scene right from its foundations by exposing it to their dark-mannered claustrophobic syntheses. To which track should we really draw |»ur attention? 'First Time'?, 'Normal Night'?, 'In Obscurity'?, 'Le desert des tortures'? To which other really, if not a] An extensive synthesis composed of fearful trombonnes, profound bass-rhymes, intense dark synths executing minimalistic maneuvers in all. Finally, after all these years the group's magnificent material is released in a proper format ready to re-construct cold ambiences and re-vitalize memories as per their concept of rebellious act against political totalitarianism and unjustifiable violence (Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it..). Eirkti is finally ready for this strictly limited edition of 500 copies including a special info-card.
Well, that is for now! We hope that you'll find all this interesting and we'll be gladly waiting to hear from you soon!
All the best,
The Eirkti Team"
