Catalog no.: MENT0000001

Item ID: 427525

Based in Frankfurt, Circles comprised the multi-instrumental duo of Dierk Leitert (synthesizer, sequencer, drums, bass, guitar, voice, saxophone, flute) and Mike Bohrmann (guitars, bass, synthesizer) plus a few collaborators. Carrying the torch of '70s bands s.a. Cluster, Harmonia and Liliental into the '80s, the musicians were also contemporaries of groups à la Throbbing Gristle, Ilitch and Nurse With Wound, so you can expect some similarities in their music. 'Circles' was the duo's first album, originally released in 1983 as a private pressing on their own Einhorn label, housed in a cool and mysterious looking cover. This obscure kraut/psych/experimental album is highly recommended to anyone into Harmonia, Cluster, Fripp/Eno, Heldon, Conrad Schnitzler, Neu!, Throbbing Gristle, Ilitch, Irmin Schmidt, and Amon Düül II.
This first ever reissue includes detailed liner notes by Alan Freeman (The Crack In The Cosmic Egg, Ultima Thule), telling the band's story for the first time.

Also available: CIRCLES (CD), MORE CIRCLES (LP), MORE CIRCLES (CD).
