After unearthing treasures by Pete Namlook (the timeless techno of "Subharmonic Atoms") and Slap (with a sublime reworking by Ricardo Villalobos) Stefan Goldmann and Finn Johannsen from Macro continue their "Prototypes" series with a lost album produced in the late seventies by legendary dance music pioneer Patrick Cowley and his musical partner Jorge Soccaras. You can read the story on the Catholic myspace, as well as listen to some tracks from the LP. The whole project looks and sounds very exciting, with a release date scheduled for October along with 12" versions from high profile remixers such as Morgan Geist.

The album constitutes of raw, experimental and highly infectious new wave/post punk music with some great electronic pop moments (such as "Memory Fails Me") and even a beautiful cover of Donovan's "Hurdy Gurdy Man"! Once more proven, Macro's eclecticism knows no bounds. These boys are just fearless.
