Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Lost tapes usually (but not always) remain lost for a reason i.e. they're not very good, but the tapes of Romanian band Rodion G.A. remained lost because there was no outlet for their style of music during Romania's communist period. Led by Rodion Rosca, the music here is more or less solo recordings by Rodion between 1978 and 1983 - he wrote and produced the music, recorded most of it at his home studio and he plays almost all of the instruments.

The overall sound is electronic music with elements of progressive rock, pitched somewhere between Kraftwerk and Italian Prog rockers Goblin. Using self-modified instruments and improvised recording techniques, the music is awash with layered synthesizer arrangements, with programmed beats and guitar drifting in and out of the mix. Primarily instrumental and stylistically forward thinking, I'm loathe to call it 'experimental' because the lasting impression is that Rodion knew exactly what he was doing. From introspective electronia to dense freakouts, it all sounds remarkably fresh some 30 years later.

Although a compilation of sorts, the song ordering is superb and it all hangs together perfectly. Remastered from Rodion's master tapes, the sound quality is excellent. Clocking in at 38:39 minutes and housed in a digipak with exstensive sleeve notes (apparently, Rodion spent time working as a labourer in London during the early nineties), this is a must for anyone with an interest in the more electronic aspects of Krautrock and electronic music in general.
