ENSEMBLE PITTORESQUE in 1982 were Paulus Wieland, Richard Neumöller and Ton Willekes and they released their first vinyl album in early 1983 on their own Clogsontronics label, which is widely regarded as one of the master pieces of Dutch Electropop music and has been a highly collectible item ever since. Now the album gets its wonderful re-issue on the recently revived Clogsontronics label, once again – like the STÖRUNG re-issue – in a beautifully remastered set of both vinyl LP and CD. Basically recorded using Korg MS-20/Polysix, Oberheim OB-4, Roland SH-09/TB-303/TR-808, and Siel Orchestra one wouldn’t except other than a great album and it is. It is guessed you all know about it and that you want it, so don’t be shy and get it while you can!
