Overview

Release Date:10/05/2018;Notes:Music From Memory return with a further six tracks from Dutch musician Richenel. Perfect Stranger, like La Diferencia (MFM 017EP, 2017) contains recordings taken from his debut mini-LP, also called La Diferencia, and originally released in 1982 on the cult Amsterdam cassette only label Fetisj. Music From Memory's second release from the artist, Perfect Stranger, includes alternate takes drawn from Richenel's personal copy of the album alongside a further composition which didn't make it onto the original Fetisj cassette. Studying set and costume design whilst making a name for himself as a singer and performer in Amsterdam's underground clubs, Richenel played with several disco acts and cultivated an extravagant cross-gender stage persona before connecting with members of the local label. Hooking up through their time together at the Rietveld art academy in Amsterdam, Fetisj was an experimental multi-media collective which revolved around a loose mix of various young artists and musicians. Having developed a house band with artists going by a number of different pseudonyms the label set up their own small makeshift studio and would produce and sell the cassettes through their distribution network and at events across the city. Recorded amongst the turmoiled punk and squatter scene of Amsterdam against a backdrop of drugs and social unrest, the La Diferencia sessions reflect a unique mix of punk aesthetics with a synthesized bedroom funkiness. A somewhat illustrious figure in Dutch pop history with his flamboyant appearance as well as having one of the more exceptional male voices to come out of the country, Richenel would go on to record a number of successful albums and hit singles in the Netherlands and beyond. This largely unknown album on Fetisj however, seems to embody the spirit of another time a particularly unique and richly creative moment in Amsterdam's musical and cultural history and one that is deserving of a much wider audience. Perfect Stranger is co-compiled by Orpheu de Jong.
