White Noise - An Electric Storm (c-38)

$7.00 / Coming Soon

Experimental electronic music project established in London in 1968, originally as a group project between David Vorhaus and BBC Radiophonic Workshop members Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson.
Theres never been an album quite like this. A must have for fans of Electronic music. They bring in elements of pop in a very tasteful and new way. This is a classic album that has been very hard to find and expensive over the years.Super influencial, Warp Record's Broadcast basically got their sound from these guys (and gal) Here's a chance to get a nice remastered copy on high bias analog tape for the very first time. Limited to 100 copies. *Distributed title on Keep Tapes Alive

White Noise's first album has long been one of the holy grails for kosmische / space rock collectors. Kinda strange, actually, because it's actually more on the "exotica" Moog side of things, as opposed to a Klaus Schulze or Conrad Schnitzler production... Released in 1968 on Island in a total vacuum, An Electric Storm could be a Perrey & Kingsley soundtrack to a Radley Metzger soft-core porn film with twee psych-pop vocal melodies (a la Beach Boys, Free Design, Monkees) topped off with lots of bizarre electronic squiggles that originated in the BBC's Radiophonic Workshop (care of Delia Derbyshire!). White Noise's mastermind David Vorhaus keeps things pretty surreal with a track based around the recordings made at a orgy (as well as a Satanic mass!) and with a precursor to the John Balance vocal mumbles about how "darkness was enshrouded by darkness and the darkness was deadeningly dark." A sonic touchstone for Broadcast, The Focus Group and the Ghostbox label.
