Discover one of the last U.S. cult bands from the creative early '80s disco and post-punk period. Indoor Life -- an undisputed delightful blend of rock, new wave and hypnotic grooves, at that time often compared and collated with Tuxedomoon. Their first EP from 1980 was recorded by the legendary producer Patrick Cowley. The four piece consisting of J.A. Deane, Bob Hoffnarr, Joseph Sabella and former Patrick Cowley collaborator Jorge Socarras (who has recently formed the duo Fanatico together with Mathias Schaffhäuser) was the epitome of New York's flourishing underground scene in the early 1980s. Indoor Life gave a strong impetus to Europe's electronic music scene of the 1980s. Their records were released on their own Indoor Life imprint and renowned labels like Celluloid, Elektra and Relativity. On two CDs, Elaste Records and Compost "Curated" Records release the complete Indoor Life catalog. CD1 contains their debut EP Indoor Life and the first self-titled album. CD2 comes with the EPs Relativity, Searching and Sunshine Superman, plus alternative mixes, bonus and remix recordings (six of them previously-unreleased). All material has been digitalized, re-mastered from original reels or vinyl, and includes previously-unreleased bonus tracks and remixes by Soft Rocks, Quaid, Mathias Schaffhäuser, Discodromo, and more. More remixes will follow on vinyl. The CD artwork and poster were designed by Thomas Elsner in conjunction with Michael Reinboth, founder and publisher of the legendary magazine Elaste (1980-1985). The 2CD set contains a poster with photos, quotes and liner notes by Thomas Meinecke (FSK/Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle), Bruce Geduldig (Tuxedomoon), Jon Hassell (Fourth World), Stuart Matthewman (Sade), Finn Johansson (Macro Recordings), Mike Thorne (producer for Wire, Soft Cell, Nina Hagen, Bronski Beat, Siouxsie And The Banshees, and Laurie Anderson, amongst others).
