Niton Decay This is strange but very creative stuff. So good to make this gem of early experimental electronic music available again. It takes more than one good listen to this album, but it's worth it! Favorite track: Person to Person.

renek Ahead of their time, this album cames out in 1982... Members are Bernard Szajner (French) and Karl Beer (England). A genious psychedelic electronic-mix with spoken and singing voices in French, English and Russian... I love it... Favorite track: On The Edge Of The White Zone.

about

A lost new wave classic given the definitive reissue treatment. The (Hypothetical) Prophets were a collaboration between French electronic pioneer Bernard Szajner and British musician Karel Beer, recording something of a Soviet-themed concept album under the pseudonyms Joseph Weil and Norman D.Landing.

Known to aficionados of minimal synth, the album has rarely been heard since its original release on CBS/EPIC. In 2004 two tracks were included on the compilation So Young, But So Cold: Underground French Music 1977-1983 and in recent years it has been cited as a seminal album by specialist blogs such as Mutant Sounds and Systems Of Romance.

It has now been rescued from oblivion by InFiné who lovingly reissued Visions Of Dune by Prophets member Bernard Szajner in 2014, to much critical acclaim. Re-mastered from the original tapes with the full co-operation of the band members, the track sequence restored to how the composers originally intended it, and previously unheard bonus tracks on the CD.
