LP & 7inch / Anna Logue Records (Annalogue) / 2013
Sometimes, things just happen, rather unexpectedly, as... who
has not tried to track down a copy of the two records "For a Moment"
(12"EP, Taursus, 1982) and, of course, the "Music for the New
Depression" (MLP, Glaze, 1984), from LEAGUE OF NATIONS - two of those "holy grails" of minimal synth music, so highly sought-after, much money paid for, and eventually bootlegged. And who
has not tried to track down this one DAVID SINFIELD from somewhere
around Los Angeles, USA, the main person behind this one band, the
LEAGUE OF NATIONS?
Well, neither you found David, nor did we!
So what actually happened was... that David found Anna, ya, it's as simple as that, sometimes!
So, almost exactly two years after first contact, Anna Logue Records
is over the moon to release the complete works of DAVID SINFIELD and the
early incarnation of LEAGUE OF NATIONS. The artwork was designed upon
David's remarks on the original design: "The cover of "Music for the New
Depression" was originally to be done on light grey parchment with
azure blue letters and thin white shadowing all about. Glass Records
thought it would look too much like a "factory" (read Joy Divison
product) and changed the colour! Imagine that. The Sinfield album came
with a jacket showing a silhouette of New York Harbour (NY Two) with
the now destroyed World Trade Center at forefront.", painstakingly
assembled from the original promotional 12"'s booklet and other bits by
no-one else than Steve Lippert. The audio material was equally
painstakingly and delicately restored and mastered by Stefan Bornhorst
and sounds nothing but awesome.
This is a dream come true, for Anna, and for you!
LP+7"EP features: limited edition, 180 grams vinyl with printed Hansaboard outer sleeve, printed inner
sleeves with lyrics, double-sided DIN A3 poster, double-sided maxicard
