Quintessential dark ambient record, probably one of the most sinister 80's industrial releases.

For me it's their best along with Eostre , two fine double albums of excellent experimental music.

In my not so humble opinion, this spectacular release is ZOVIET FRANCE's best, each song totaly authentic and powerful, each song a genre itself. 32 years later and noone (not even grand COIL) managed to ever release sth like this. This the pool of industrial possibilities, search no further.

Nice record. Hard to believe that promo copies were sent out (of the 2nd press) but I distinctly remember receiving one (which I still possess) in the mid 80s sometime (86/87?) Don't know if that fits in with the timeline.
Misfits... was also promo'd around 1986 as well. Seems a strange sort of thing to send out to radio stations.... but that was the old days.... weren't they great?

Nearly 30 years since I bought this! Original masonite covered version. I just converted the vinyl to MP3 and listened again with fresh ears. Still remains the mysterious entity it always was. One of ZF's most satisfying releases and I have quite a few (in original and wondrous) artwork sleeves. As I slowly convert each of their recordings for portable listening I realise what a unique force they really were. Even inspired me to try my own hand at 'sound sculpting', with a little less success than they. Mohnomishe is quintessential ZF, the primitive, other-wordly, electronic and subsonic pulses. Like no-one else before or since. A joy. My heart quickens.

The third set by this great electronic improv unit. They used extremely primitive equipment to create the sounds, and manage to create a thick ass ritual-webbing that covers everything.

Mohnomishe is likely the most wanted album of :zoviet*france: production, together with the sad fact that it was released in early '80 and also that it was a low-number-copies release. An absolute industrial-experimental-ambient-tribal shock and power which was not heard before and also a long time after Mohnomishe itself, not only in ambient-experimental genre. What the band made with available instrumentation in those times is fascinating for almost all subsequent musicians many of whom gathered their inspiration from this master piece. :zoviet*france: raised their bar in the sky and were sometimes unable to surpass it with some of their own later work. Gradation of Mohnomishe reaches its point with track 4 which is the most ambient from album and the furthest elaborated here. Simply written, fans should start with Mohnomishe to get a flavour of their fine stuff.

The sound was so far ahead of it's time. All these strange soundscapes had fascinated me after first listening. Easily to recognize the influences of ambient and industrial. 1983. A good year for electronic music. And sure the masterpiece of Zoviet France...
