LUC VAN ACKER is from Tienen, Belgium, and a rather enigmatic figure of the Belgian electronic music scene, both recording solo and being a member in – amongst others - Arbeid Adelt and the Revolting Cocks (together with Front 242 and Ministry members). In 1980 (or 1982), when at the age of 18, he self-produced his first album “Taking Snapshots” (which includes the minimal electro hit “Find a Way” and the beautiful “Frozen Tears”) and sold it in the streets of Europe as it is said. This MLP features his live performance, recorded December 18th, 1981, on Dutch radio show RadioNome, which was created by Stephen Emmer, and aired between October 1981 and September 1982. Incredible to hear that “Samadhi” and “Buharata” already sounds like what later the Revolting Cocks were doing. “Dohan Viola” sounds like one of the tracks from Brad Fiedel’s The Terminator soundtrack, with brooding dark synth drone and scratching violin, metallic percussions and strange creatures howling, a masterpiece of ambient drone industrial music. “Fanfaro Piano” is a mix of ambient industrial electronics and modern classical touches. Another historical document, maybe not so much for the electropoppers out there but for those with a tendency towards more experimental structures.
