2013 release. Un-Kommuniti (sometimes also called Un-Kommunity or Thee Un-Kommuniti) was an early-to-mid-'80s project run by Tim Gane with support of Joe Manning, Vince "Van Hire" Adams, Dave "Smut" Smit, and Pete Levy. Tim Gane went on to achieve renown with his band Stereolab and his participation in the band McCarthy in the late '80s. Un-Kommuniti ran their own tape label, Black Dwarf. The group was interested in musical alchemy and the result of this approach in the creation of their music is an incredible mix of psychedelic elements paired with the heaviest power electronics and noise sound-walls, leading the listening to the ultimate psychedelic journey. People familiar with the music of Stereolab will definitely recognize the roots of their musical output in this four-LP box set. They were active from 1983 until 1987 and released on numerous cassette culture labels including Freedom in a Vacuum, Broken Flag, Selbstmord OrganizaciĆ³n, Cause for Concern, Sound of Pig, and more. Besides their Brutality of Fact 7", released on Cause for Concern in 1984, they just had two other vinyl releases -- contributions to the compilations Freedom in a Vacuum (1987) and Statement (Broken Flag, 1984). This is the ultimate chance to enjoy a musical journey with almost four hours of carefully selected tape tracks by Un-Kommuniti. All the tracks selected for this box were recorded between 1983 and '85 and were previously only released on the group's own Black Dwarf label. Includes tracks from Black Dwarf (BDRS1), Doktrine (BDC1), Overliberated/Live in the Shithouse (BDW 06), The Prime Advantage (BDC10), Anarchist Bingo Hall/Soundtracks (BDC11), Sense of Unmaking (BDC12), Dhol Chants (BDC14), and Ex-Oblivione (BDC17), as well as the compilations Faith Will Never Die... (BDC05) and Crusade (BDC08).
