O Yuki Conjugate

O Yuki Conjugate
O Yuki Conjugate are probably best known (to us anyway) for their late 80s and early 90s output: very weird, very drug-damaged ambient records, deep, dense Isolationist affairs that are very much their own thing but which sit alongside comfortably enough alongside contemporaneous stuff from zoviet*france, Coil, Muslimgauze and the like. But as this 10” from Emotional Rescue (preceding a reissue of their Scene In Mirage LP) shows, they were doing mad and interesting things with machines as far back as ’83. The previously unreleased recordings compiled here are really grimy, beat-driven industrial affairs, with surface-similarities to Solid Space, XX Commitee, Bourbonese Qualk, Smersh, early Cabs, etc - all uber-primitive synth lines, tape loops and drum machines that sound like they were dredged up from the floor of the Thames. It’s a sound that might feel a little overfamiliar to your spoilt 2018 ears, worn out by a decade’s worth of intensive post-punk reissue culture, but be smart and listen as Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou advised… cos honestly, this is the stuff, and an important missing piece of the UK DIY’s maddening, unsolvable puzzle.
