☼ Konstruktivists - A.G.M. MC / Kontraband MC



Konstruktivists was formed by Glenn Michael Wallis (aka. NKVD) in 1982 out of the ashes of Heute, a kraut rock influenced trio using electronics as well as conventional guitars and bass. Around this time, in the late '70s - early '80s, Glenn was heavily involved with Throbbing Gristle. He acted as control agent for them - which involved anything from checking out venues to acting as bouncer/heavy. Glenn also moonlighted as a part-time member of Whitehouse - playing live with them in several countries and participating on their LP "Great White Death." -- which is no wonder their early material sounds very influenced by those two, especially TG, which can be heard on the "A.G.M." release. (just listen to "Nightsinn" and tell me you don't except to hear... "Hamburger Lady" :) Tracks 1-5 were composed in 1982, with tracks 4 & 5 being remixed in 1992. Tracks 6 & 7 were composed in 1992, and track 8 in 1983. "Kontraband" is a bit different, adding more ethnic percussive sounds, bass-slaps, and sax. Some have said it reminds them of later era SPK, Cabaret Voltaire, or even Controlled Bleeding's "Trudge / Penetration" era. (though I would argue not as refined as those artists.) It was recorded and mixed at Glennascaul by NKVD, and limited to 333 pieces.
