MYSTERY PLANE -Still Life (70s Amon Duul style) LPCOLOR DISC
Mystery Plane formed in 1980 from the ashes of 70's new wave band 3D5 who's line-up also featured future Cure member Porl Thompson.
This record was originally a demo cassette made in 1981 that was hawked around record labels with a view for release.
Later Color Tapes released a 100 copies edition. To support their demo at the time the band played such gigs at the Marquee, Rock Garden and The Bridgehouse supporting bands such as Fad Gadget, Modern English and Henry Padovani (Ex-Police) in London.
This sublime minimal basement krauty synth LP was inspired by bands such as Neu, Amon Duul ll, and "Vienna" period Ultravox.
The album features guitar work of Gerald O' Connell who was a big fan of Ash Ra Tempel's guitarist Manuel Gottsching. A year later he went on to form Lives Of Angels who made the classic cold wave album "Elevator To Eden" which was originally released on Color Tapes in 1983.
Mystery Plane have been featured on the sold out Cold Waves Of Color compilation series.
The album has been remastered by Denis Blackham and comes complete with a poster insert. Import edition, limited to 250x copies.
