Spike – Orange Cloud Nine
When Phil at Golf Channel sent me Juju & Jordash‘s “Unleash The Golem” 12″ he tucked in an early pressing of another forthcoming LP he thought I’d like… major understatement. Orange Cloud Nine is a collection of tracks taken from a series of home recorded LPs that were self-released in the early eighties by Dutch artist Spike. Sounding like an Italo version of Alan Parsons, I’d say anyone who’s a fan of Italians Do It Better or Darkside owes it to themselves to check this LP out.
No completed artwork yet as the release is still coming together. The image above is taken from the “New Germany” 12″ that was, in a strange twist, banned in Germany despite being clearly anti-fascist. Final release should drop sometime in March but I’ve got a few tracks for you to hear now. — Memory Tapes
