MNQ 130 Caroline K - Don't Believe It's Over (Alessandro Adriani Remix)
€12.00 / On Sale
Mannequin Records is elated to present a rare lost demo tape recording of Caroline K - real name Caroline Kaye Walters - founder member of Nocturnal Emissions, one of the best UK experimental/industrial music groups in the 1980s.
When we asked Nigel Ayers about the possibility to press a small batch of the edit made by Mannequin Records's head Alessandro Adriani, we would never expect to find more material from her solo productions. The only production of Caroline available is in fact her LP 'Now Wait For The Last Year' released in 1987 by Earthly Delights and eventually repressed by Klanggalerie / Blackest Ever Black Black.
Presented in 4 different versions - Original, Dub, Instrumental and Edit - 'Dont Believe It's Over' was recorded in 1983 at Caroline's home studio in Brixton, 'Don't Believe It's Over' was taken during a pause from the main project Nocturnal Emissions.
With the help of Beverley Ireland - a mysterious friend of Caroline, who nobody seems to know anything nowdays - on the vocals, Caroline used a full weapon gear made of Sequential Circuit Six Tracks and Drumtracks, Roland SH-101, Roland Tr-808, Powertran Vocoder, EMS Synthi, some Casio, all recorded on a Fostex 8 tracks reel-to-reel.
Caroline and Beverley completed a full demo cassette and sent it around to few labels, and no one unfortunately got interest. Eventually Caroline suggested later Nigel to include 'Don't Believe It's Over' on the Nocturnal Emissions retrospective 'Duty Experiment' cassette, released on Soleilmoon Records in 1988.
Thanks to Nigel and Danny Ayers for making this release possible. In Loving Memory of Caroline Kaye Walters.
