Peter Murphy – Lion

A lion is an impressive and majestic creature, and those attributes could describe the career of Mr. Peter Murphy.

Peter Murphy… Keep Reading

Listen to this one, and you will be embraced by darkness… This is a pretty interesting release: “Unterwelt” is a lost jewel created by  Short Circuit in the early 90’s, and it remained unreleased for so long; the good thing is that the record label Brouillard Définitif, decided to make a proper release.

It’s been a little over eighteen months since we released a ‘single edit’ version of ‘Death by Discothèque’ as a free download in December 2013, backed with the stomping synthpop remix from one of the great pillars of European electro-industrial dance music, Leæther Strip.

Though the first half of the album has some of the band’s best work in my opinion, the… Keep Reading
