Dendö Marionette - s/t 7" flexi (QP., 1981)


Legendary (and legendarily expensive) only release from über-cult group Dendö Marionette. I gotta say... this deserves the hype. Frozen・Edge reminds me of Red Exposure-era Chrome + Cabaret Voltaire at their fiercest - a cyber-punk anthem replete with electroid guitar solos and blurred vocals. Conciousness is comparable the sub-zero crawl of house favorite Motionless by Libido, and the incredibly woozy Walts (For Lautréament) starts off like a collaboration between The Gurdjieff and Taiji before settling down in ultra-dark industrial synth-pop territory. Amazing!

This rip was contributed (but not made) by bX-59cppw, who just recently upped the C.Memi + Neo Matisse 7" on his blog, which needs to be heard by everyone who follows Stalking Duppi!

Excellent review! :-)
My english vocabulary is pretty limited,
hence i would never be able to review it in all it's glory as you did...

Just to note in public though, that in contrast with the C.Memi 7" that i have here,
the Dendö Marionette flexi is not my own rip...
but was shared with me from someone very generous and polite.
Not really sure if he would like to see his name mentioned in public though,thereby...

I knew within 0.5 seconds that I was going to love this. You've said it all in your review. Chrome an obvious influence.

Why is it that the last 20 things to make my jaw drop have been Japanese, circa 1980 -1987? And why are so many of them on flexi discs?

this blog is great, keep posting! My friend just showed me this blog cause he knew I was into japanese underground music - most of this stuff I haven't even HEARD OF! But I'm listening to Dendo Marionette now and just seeing the word "cyberpunk" in your writeup set me off downloading. Really cool, thanks for sharing!
