Don't know how many copies were made, but, not even one year after the release of this album, every format is sold out. I wanted to buy the CD, as the LP is missing four tracks, but I was unable to obtain it. Pretty absurd, if you ask me.

Thank you so much! Reviews like yours are the reason I still love Discogs! I'm now immediately going to check out Musica Elettronica Viva! From the description you did, I suspect they strongly influenced one of my favourite bands, Nurse With Wound.... See full review

The copy I bought doesn't have any noise or clicks, sounds pretty smooth, as much as an M.B. record can sound smooth, of course.
And I do agree with the review below dating back to a good ten years ago: this is definitely one of Maurizio's best albums... See full review

This LP is worth having for the astonishing artwork and photos (Death In June in WWII German camouflage and masks inspired a whole generation of future neofolk fans), as well as the beautiful side A. "Break The Black Ice", sung by Rose McDowell, is... See full review

"A Cold Cell", "Ayor" and "Backwards" were played live at the Teatro Delle Celebrazioni in Bologna, Italy, back in April 2002. That was the second and, alas, last time I had the luck of attending a Coil live performance. Those songs haunted me for... See full review

It's unbelievable that, with nearly any classic punk material having been reissued, The Plugz are still lost in time and space. Their 7" singles and the two LPs are screaming for a comprehensive reissue!

This was my very first Controlled Bleeding album, and the one I keep returning to even after 30 years. I had never listened to a single note by this band before, and of course I found their name in a list of generic "industrial" artists. It was the... See full review

Yes, Marshall Tito's voice samples were censored. It was not allowed to use his voice on a record in Yugoslavia. You could hear his voice on the same songs on "Nova Akropola".

I have a black vinyl copy, purchased in October 2007, and it does contain the lyrics sheet.

An album so full of sounds, sketches, parodies, ideas and intuitions, that it leaves you speechless. An extensive Dadaist collage with a general mood shifting continously between the joyful and the melancholic.

I'd recommend "God In Three Persons", if you haven't checked it out yet. It's a real hidden gem in their late 80's discography. You can find a nice review another user did under the 2LP entry here in Discogs. It needs to be listened in its entirety to... See full review

Well, maybe you aren't aware that "Pure Hatred" is actually a compilation of old material from their 1980's tapes. No surprise, then, that it some tracks may sound today a bit outdated, poor and even mediocre. It wasn't definitely recorded in 2003.

If you keep asking yourselves who Laibach are, what they want and what they mean, just listen to "Perspektive". It's their manifesto, spoken and explained in English. Everything you need to know is there, and still today valid, over 30 years later.

I think you are confusing with another Base. This is an Italian indie label releasing editions for the Italian market. No chainstores involved and I don't think they ever released any Dead Kennedys record.
