"Hello. Suction Records is proud to present Hand-Picked Fragments, the debut full-length release by Skanfrom. Skanfrom is a robot from Germany named Roger. For those of you who complained that Suction only releases music by Solvent and Lowfish, here you go. It has taken us over 4 years to find a suitable robot to join Suction's full-time ranks. Skanfrom is obviously the man for the job, blending elements of modern electro with the raw, stripped down approach of early-80's synth-pop. Try to imagine the melancholy electro of Bochum Welt or Solvent, mixed with the stark, muffled robot-pop of Kraftwerk's Radioactivity. Skanfrom has been releasing his distinct brand of minimal electronic pop for several years on his own A.D.S.R. label, but if you blinked you could have missed out, because his A.D.S.R.releases have been strictly limited to small pressings of vinyl-only singles and cassettes. Suction felt it was necessary to release a retrospective of Skanfrom's obscure, underground career. Hand-Picked Fragments is a selection of Suction's favorite tracks from Skanfrom's sold-out A.D.S.R.back catalog, along with several new and exclusive tracks recorded for Suction."
