Plastic Noise Experience (D)


(official homepage) In the early 90's, their debut album "Transmission" immediately propelled Plastic Noise Experience to the forefront of the explosive German dark elektro scene along side of bands like Project Pitchfork, Das Ich, The Eternal Afflict and Calva Y Nada. With the dynamic releases that followed ("Visage De Plastique", "Transmitted Memories", "Strings Of Ice", Rauschen", etc.), P.N.E. infiltrated dancefloors all over the world and started touring extensively throughout Europe exciting the crowds with hits like "Gold", "Smalltown Boy", "Kill The 6", "Strings Of Ice", "Last Regression", "City Of Lies", etc. However due to some trouble with record companies, P.N.E. was abruptly forced to keep silent. But the giant awoke in 2002 and surprised us all with the "Clean Head" single. The machine had been refueled and the ignition set, P.N.E. returned to the stage at various major festivals, appeared on numerous compilations which all led to the inevitable declaration that the Master has returned. From that moment, along with developing a new line-up for his live performances, Claus Kruse went back to the "machine-factory" and began writing brand new material for his 5th full-length album "Maschinenmusik", announced by the "Maschinen" and "Maschinenraum" singles. Uncompromised old school EBM, harsh powerful German vocals, kicking distorted beats and virulent Kraftwerk-like melodies... P.N.E. overpowers you with an engulfing and explosive sonic experience building the bridge between the original Neue Deutsche Welle roots and 21st Century's "less is more" electronic movement. Generated by the force and precision of current technologies in combination with the vision of an originator, creates what could only be described as "good old electronic music with an edge".

(http://plastic-noise-experience.labellos.de/) Die Dark-Elektro-Formation Plastic Noise Experience wurde 1989 von Claus Kruse und Stephan Kalwa gegründet. Mit Alben, wie „Transmission“, „Visage De Plastique“, „Transmitted Memories“, „Strings Of Ice“ oder „Rauschen“ erarbeiteten sie sich einen echten Status in der Szene und schufen zugleich Dancefloor-Klassiker. Die Fangemeinde ihres aggressiven EBM-Industrial-Sound wuchs beständig.

Doch lange Jahre hörte man gar nichts mehr von Plastic Noise Experience, bis schließlich 2004 die Wiederauferstehung gefeiert werden konnte. Claus veröffentlichte, nunmehr solo, die Remix-EP „Maschinenraum“ und das Album „Maschinenmusik“ - wieder eine gekonnte Mischung aus Oldschool-EBM und harten deutschen Vocals, unterlegt mit Melodien, die den Hörer an Kraftwerk erinnern. Weiterhin enthalten waren Remixe von Wumpscut, Suicide Commando, Armageddon Dildos und Solitary Experiments. Im Jahr 2006 folgte „Dead Or Alive“, eine Art BestOf-CD, auf der viele Hits neu aufgelegt bzw. als Remix veröffentlicht wurden.
