VA Made To Measure Vol.1


Made To Measure Vol.1 (1984)

"The inaugural release of the Made To Measure series includes pieces by four artists:
Aksak Maboul's "Un Chien mérite une mort de chien" is clearly inspired by the subject matter of the play it was written for (Vladimir Mayakovsky and the Russian Futurists), while their strangely melodic minimal turntablist piece "Scratch Holiday" (entirely generated with a turntable, a vinyl 7" single from the '60s and some orange marmalade) is allegedly the soundtrack of a Honeymoon Killers holiday movie;
Tuxedomoon's obsessive "Verdun" comes from the soundtrack of a Dutch movie about the famous WW1 battlefield;
Minimal Compact's elegant "Pieces For Nothing" were created for a dance performance by choreographer Pierre Droulers;
Benjamin Lew's piece ("A la Recherche de B.") was the soundtrack for a fashion exhibition."  - Crammed Discs
