Release Date:09/30/2014;Notes:Bay Area Retrograde (BART) Volume 2 is Dark Entries' second compilation of underground music from San Francisco (and the greater Bay Area) made between 1978-1983. Towards the end of the 70s, San Francisco's experimental music scene clashed with the aftermath of punk and gave birth to a vibrant underground. By the early to mid 80s the DIY music scene of the Bay Area was a hotbed for experimental and quirky new wave, post punk, and synthpop, quite similar to New York's No Wave scene and Berlin's Neue Deutsche Welle. This compilation connects the (transit) lines between these varied musical offerings and tells the secret story of eleven forgotten Bay Area bands._x000D_ BART Volume 2 features slow, dystopian horror from pioneering industrial group Factrix crushing, motorik noise from acid punks Chrome amphetamine-driven synth punk from Red Asphalt an early demo, never released on vinyl, from legendary post punk band Tuxedoomon chilling atmospheric drone from Ki Di Me leftfield new wave from Indoor Life featuring Patrick Cowley on synths Los Microwaves more sinister side project Baby Buddha gay drag icon Timmy Spence delivering an unknown camp classic, a pure instrumental electro-pop workout from Human Being Men TR-808 fueled synth pop from Menlo Park duo Wonders of Science, and a poetic yet somber and haunting song from the mysterious Zru Vogue._x000D_ All tracks have been carefully remastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.
