First edition of 500 copies with a bonus regioin free DVD packaged in a full color book bound case. Arbeit Macht Fry! Head Resonance Company’s swirling miasma of minimal electronics is more than an NDW high wasser mark; it is Teutons of fun. Their Sturm is a little bit DAF and their Drang, a little bit Liaisons Dangereuses (and their Ja Jawohl, a little bit Esplendor Geometrico). Head Resonance Company was formed not only as a musical project, but as an all out art collective, so their particular brand of minimal synth carries a pilsnered reek of experimentalism that raises their standard a bit above the coldwave rank and file of the day. Fairly revolutionary for the 1980-1984 period in which these tracks were recorded, the proto 4-to-the-floor industrialisms are cut with powerful electro noise blitzes. Fantastic synthetic sounds, beats and effects throughout. HRC uber alles!

The DVD is a documentation about the works of the HEAD RESONANCE COMPANY during the years 1978-1984 and 1999-2006.

All of these are introduced on the DVD as a part of the HEAD RESONANCE COMPANY.
