Dark Entries and Minimal Maximal have joined forces to re-issue the complete discography of Vita Noctis on Double LP. Previously these songs were restricted to limited self-released cass- ettes, compilations and a sole 12'' mini LP. Beware, this is abrasive, primal music made by irritated teenagers full of angst! Vita Noctis were a trio from Vilvoorde, Belgium in the Flemish region. Inspired by the post-punk movement, twin brothers Kris and Jos Kips convinced their friend Martine Genijn to start a band in 1983. They recorded their earliest songs onto a 4-track machine in their bedroom studio using the meager equipment they could afford: bass, guitar, 2 synthesizers and a drummachine. Their first album 'In the Face of…Death' was self-released on cassette only, in 1984 followed by the 'Much Money Good Boy, No Money Good-Bey' cassette in 1985. In 1986 the band recorded 5 songs in a real studio in Gent/Belgium, later released as the self-titled 12' mini LP on ‘Mad in Belgium Records’. Their final recording session was november 1986, resulting in the song 'She likes me' which appeared on the 'Climax productions presents' LP. More ‘arthouse' than 'goth', VIta Noctis blend the sneering attitude of punk with the spartan structures of minimal electronics. The band had more in common with the early electronic Sheffield scene of Cabaret Voltaire, Vice Versa or early Human League than their Belgian contemporaries. Urgent vocals go from a whisper to a scream in seconds and sound restless, bored and irritated all at once. Fuzzy guitar, simple baselines and crude electronics take turns accompanying the dynamic vocal styling. All songs have been remastered from the restored 1/4'' reel to reel tapes in California. Each 2LP comes in a gatefold jacket with cover art by original designer Stephan Barbery and never before seen band photos and lyrics for each song. Spanning 3 years and 4 recording sessions 'Against the Rule ' is the soundtrack to armageddon, very fitting in the contemporary climate of dissatisfaction and social upheavel.
