Macro Recordings announces the release of a full Patrick Cowley album, written and performed in collaboration with Indoor Life vocalist Jorge Socarras, that has never been released. This is NOT a reissue, nor is it material scrapped by the artists -- the original release of this album was delayed for 3 decades due to Cowley's tragic death in 1982. Recorded between 1976 and 1979, Catholic is a genre-bending concept album with a range from minimalistic proto-techno to synth-driven post-punk -- pre-dating LCD Soundsystem and The Rapture by almost 30 years. Patrick Cowley (1950-1982) remains one of disco's most influential artists and a key producer of the genre. With seminal hits like "Do You Wanna Funk," "Menergy" and "Megatron Man," his work for disco-superstar Sylvester and of course, his million-selling remix of Donna Summer's "I Feel Love," he created the soundtrack for a whole generation. Artists such as Depeche Mode, The Pet Shop Boys and New Order cite him as a major influence. With a whole new global-disco aficionado scene now playing his records every weekend across the world's clubs, this release is about to hit the streets right on time. It shows a much broader range than any Cowley or Socarras material available and gives a totally new perspective to one of the most inspiring eras in music history.
