BLACK vinyl edition in super deluxe gatefold sleeve, with silver ink layers!

Pioneering Italian electronic act Pankow released their first EVER mini-album, Throw Out Rite, on the Electric Eye label in 1983 on cassette -- and to the surprise of many collectors and fans, this incredible document of the band's early years was never released on vinyl [despite offeres from countless labels] -- and also never released on any proper Pankow CD album.

Leading off with the sublime FIRST version of the classic das Wodkalied, the tape is a sonic masterpiece, mixing as it does the weirdest elements of early Throbbing Gristle compositions with the exciting urgency of acts like Einsturzende Neubauten and Clock DVA. Blixa Bargeld (of Neubauten fame) even makes a cameo on “Rendez-Vous dans un Bois”, a weird track that serves to foreshadow the direction of the rest of the album. Later on, the echo-chamber of ‘Destiny’ sounds like something Coil would do a few years later. And the closing piece ‘I am

Food for You’ is what Severed Heads would be if they were actual aliens and didn't really love synthpop. The entire mini-album is genius, recorded using only analogue Roland gear (RE301, TR606, TB303, 100m) and a perfect artefact of the spirit and experimentalism of early-80s electronic music.

All six tracks of ‘Throw Out Rite’ have been carefully remastered from the original tape (not cassette!). The artwork has been lovingly restored by Pankow mastermind FM ak Maurizio Fasolo and is presented in a deluxe gatefold LP with special silver ink layers.
