Buereau B records, who brought out the recent Faust album, have announced a series of reissues of releases from the SKY records back catalogue. Here is the unexpurgated press releases:
SKY records is one of the most respected labels of German avantgarde/krautrock and ambient music. Hans-Joachim Roedelius, Dieter Moebius, Conny Plank, Michael Rother ? all these artists released records on this Hamburg based label. SKY records was founded 1975 by Günter Körber after he quit his work for the world-renowed German BRAIN label, which he also founded (together with Bruno Wendel) four years before.
When Körber left BRAIN he managed to take some important artists with him, Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius (Cluster) for example. At that time they worked together with the british music eccentric Brian Eno. Two albums emerged from this collaboration on SKY records – both essential ambient/avantgarde works.
Bureau B reissues more than 20 of the most exciting SKY albums on CD and on 180 g heavy vinyl – all include rare photos and liner notes by Asmus Tietchens (also an important electronic music pioneer who released on SKY).
Along with the “established” artists we also release some hidden gems like Wolfgang Riechmann’s album “Wunderbar” – electronic music that combines the best of the two important german electronic music scenes Berlin (Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze etc.) and Düsseldorf (Kraftwerk, NEU! etc.).
Our first three releases are:
