Two classic Minimal Wave tracks remixed by The Floor (Veronica Vasicka & Karl O’Connor) ! Blue clear vinyl, housed in a hand stamped disco sleeve. and limited to 600 numbered copies
Five Times Of Dust was formed in Bristol, U.K. in 1981 by Mark Phillips and Rob Lawrence. Mark had answered an advert that Rob had placed in a local record shop and later that year they went on to record and release their first tape, The Dadacomputer. A standout track from that tape, “Computer Bank” is a seminal, “proto-techno banger”. The Floor remixed it a while ago to DJ it out and since then have been receiving many requests about where it could be purchased.
The flip side features Unovidual & Tara Cross’ “Like I Am Comme Je Suis”. It appeared on MW's first compilation entitled V/A The Lost Tapes LP, in 2006. Unovidual was a Belgian producer involved with the Micrart Group (Autumn, Linear Movement, Twilight Ritual) and Tara Cross, a “long lost girl from Brooklyn” who used to play in small NYC downlown clubs alongside Madonna during the early 1980s when she was still an unknown. Unovidual and Tara collaborated on several tracks through the mail during this time as well as in the studio. “Like I Am Comme Je Suis” was recorded in a studio in Ghent, Belgium in 1985.
Featured alongside these remixes, are two unreleased tracks. Rob Lawrence’s “Armoured Car” which at one point was released on a compilation CD as Robert (not to be confused with Rob Doran from Hard Corps) and Unovidual’s “Imponative”, a beautiful minimal synth track which has remained unreleased to this day.
