TREK WITH QUINTRONIC were US American
boys Paul Wilcox (Trek) and David Kane (Quintronic) and they should
have been ... “heroes, ... at least for one day”! Equipped with the
characteristic programmable Roland CompuRhythm CR-78 drum machine, along
with lots of analogue synthesisers, electronic percussion, Moog Taurus
pedals, guitar and a little bit of David Bowie in the back of their
heads, they recorded two pioneering albums of their own kind, true
masterpieces of electronic rock (fortunately with an emphasis on
electronic), those being the “Landing” LP from 1980, and the self-titled
follow-up “Trek w/ Quintronic” LP in 1981. Both albums basically
contain hits only with a powerful sound, myriads of compositional ideas,
synthetic noises, lovely melodies and Paul's rather unique vocals (at
least for the synth scene). Paul recalls:
“Recording for us was all very new. The engineers were very new to
recording synths. Lots of things were overdone or underdone or simply
overlooked. I also recall mixing really loud for hours through these
huge monitors. Everyone was deaf. I just remember someone always saying -
Add more high end. And then. Add more low end. Raise the guitar. Now
raise the Mini. Now raise something else. Every meter was buried in the
red. Ten hours later we'd just say - Cool, go home. Unable to hear
anything for the next ten hours. lol. We were making a record.”
Those two albums were eventually and primarily remembered and
kept alive by the minimal synth/cold wave scene, being highly
collectible and sought-after vinyls - now, after only more than 30
years, Anna Logue Records has compiled both albums, remastered from the
original vinyls by Stefan Bornhorst (aka The Silicon Scientist) and
adding two previously unreleased versions of “Twin Forces” and “When We
Were Young”, worked on by no other than Tejo Bolten of MECANO fame. Paul
and Tejo are currently working on a common project (listen to Paul's
beautiful “Stranger Than Today”

bands (The Celibates, Nullstadt, Electroman, Decay Of Western
Civilization, Them Jezzbeards).

To cut a long story short:
Attention! Here comes some - for way too long overlooked - cult from electronic rock music history!



CD features: limited edition of 500
copies, 6 panel digipak, beautiful new artwork by Steve Lippert, two
previously unreleased bonus tracks incl. Tejo Bolten from Mecano,
