SPK - Australian band

Inquiries and discussions about new wave artists and what happened to them.

SPK - Australian band

Postby ExRat » Mon Mar 22, 2004 3:33 am

Was wondering if anyone else remembers or was a fan of SPK, the Australian industrial/noise band. They release the following albums:

Information Overload Unit
Leichenschrei
Auto-Da-Fe
Machine Age Voodoo
From Science to Ritual
Zamia Lehmanni

Does anyone know if they are still around (in some manner or other)?

SPK....I really liked one song of theirs: "White Island", where they sampled voiceovers from nuclear bomb testing in the remote South Pacific islands. Talk about the Cold War era ! The voiceovers were instructions for the "locals" to get off the islands,

How could you leave their masterpiece "Gold & Poison" and the follow-up live album "Oceana" off the list???

I just listed the albums I had owned, or had heard. I wasn't aware of the others. Thanx for bringing them to my attention. I would most definitely be interested in getting them!!!!

SPK are one of my favorites--on their early releases, they do avant-noise industrial better than most; later they became a credible synthpop/industrial dance band. I think the Mute CD _Auto-Da-Fe_ is a brilliant encapsulation of their sound, and _Machine

Superfecta has actually licensed the rights to Machine Age Voodoo for a CD release in the future, but much like the oft-delayed B-Movie title - we can't seem to ascertain just large the audience is - and if it will sell.

I hope Superfecta goes through with it--I've taped this album for many friends through the years; everyone who hears it likes it. I think it would be a fairly decent seller, especially if it were marketed to goth/industrial/synthpop djs and fans. Of cou

Superfecta cd's are available on Amazon.com. That should reach a big enough market? It was there I bought my Bachelor Party cd, although I got the Cabaret Voltaire when it first came out on Virgin.

Anyway, should it materialize, please make sure all th

As a postscipt to the SPK thread... while most people believe that SPK was chiefly the brainchild of Mr Revell, the fact is that two other people had a very great deal to do with this particular permutation of rock's family tree... Firstly , Neil Hill (Ne
