Brand new 5th album by SPASMODIQUE. During the eighties SPASMODIQUE gained
a solid cultstatus in Holland, Germany, Austria & Hongary with their dark,
abrasive, murky noise-rock that served as a starting point for their ruminations
about alienation, depression, depravity, and the disturbing side of human nature.
Heavily influenced by JOY DIVISION and the likes of THE SOUND and THE SWANS
they gained a very impressive following in Holland due to their fantastic and
intense live performances. The group disbanded in 1992 but started to meet each
other again in 1996. They reunited for a one gig only performance at the 10th
anniversary of the 'De Vlerk' venue in Rotterdam and spent the last 3 years
recording new songs for the new album From Villa Delirium. In the meanwhile
vocalist Mark Ritsema continued with a solo career and got raving reviews for
his solo-album 'Studio Gloria'. The concept of Spasmodiques' 'From Villa Delirium'
is based on a moody and somewhat desolate 80's feel and also recalls the history
of the band. The song ' Holiday In Manchester' is a homage to Ian Curtis and
also a description of a pelgrimage to this grim British city. At once incredibly
destructive and astoundingly life-affirming "From Villa Delirium"
demonstrates that Spasmodique has emerged even more powerful and artistic than
before, aiming for an awesome, all-encompassing majesty in their music that
the admittedly hypnotic earlier versions of the band, in their brute forcefulness,
simply could not have achieved. This album is the clear starting point for the
second half of Spasmodiques' unique career.
