Amin-Peck- Complete(?) Discography

After the latest Sequins and Spandex debacle, and failing to track down a skipless version of “My Frames” on my own (many thanks to Veronica once more for fixing up a proper version), I’ve decided to compile each of the Amin-Peck singles together for any interested parties.

Like most ’80s electronic bands, Amin-Peck walked a fine line between italo disco and minimal wave throughout the course of the early 1980s, oftentimes incorporating shameless pop melodies and avant-garde leanings. The band was primarily a three piece (gaining vocalist Giorgio Fiorini to contribute vocals on their final 1984 12”).

As there’s no official bio kicking around the net, let’s allow the music to speak for itself, shall we? Here’s all the proper info:

Amin-Peck- Girls On Me 12” (1982)
1. Girls On Me
2. Anxiety
3. Coda

Amin-Peck- Love Disgrace 7” (1982)
1. Love Disgrace
2. Singing In The Wind

Amin-Peck- Suicidal 12”(1983)
1. Suicidal (Disco Version)
2. Suicidal (Instrumental Version)

Amin-Peck- Running Straight 12” (1984)
1. Running Straight
2. My Frames

*download all four here*

According to a few record collector sites, there are various dub and instrumental remixes of a few of these tracks kicking around, but I am unable to track anything concrete down. Should any of you out there have these rare and elusive remixes, feel free to send them my way and I’ll happily post a follow-up. Otherwise, enjoy!

    Fine line between italo disco and minimal wave indeed, much like Decadance, Sensitive, Fokewulf 190 etc. I like to call this sub-genre "Dark Italo"

  4. There is a youtube channel that seems to be run by someone from Amin-Peck with some rare stuff – a demo, an unreleased track(?) called Video Whells, a hard rock track from ’80 – Diabolico and more (!) /user/aminpeck Thanks for the singles

  5. The version of Girls on Me here is the ‘Natural Voice & Instrumental Dance Mix’ if a youtube version of the same is to be believed. I have an mp3 of a 7 min version that seems to be the ‘Re Dub Mix Version By Silver And Vanelli’. It’s just labelled ‘Girls on Me’, but it seems to be right.

  6. Very pretty. Lookin this so long.. Sorry for my bad english… I am from Russia. Good luck.

  7. Wow great. How much I missed those times.

    Hi,
    This one is missing :

    I believe it’s the one that Havard is talking about.

    Yes, the Re Dub Mix by Joe T. Vannelli and Silvio Pozzoli was released in 1982 on ZYX Germany (the link Passenger provides above) and also on Delirium with the catalogue numbers MIX 289 and 2GIKY 19826:

    I also noticed that the Coda tracks seems to be a minute longer at 6:07 than the original 12 inch mix which clocks in at 5:06 (though the longer version could be a Discogs typo as I don’t have the original 12 inch to confirm it).

    The real surprise is this 2015 12 inch release on Best Records of their 7 inch single Love Disgrace, which contains an extra ‘track’ called ‘Disgrace Reprise’ – from what I can tell, the original Love Disgrace track was around 7:25 and was chopped down for the 7 inch release to 4:25 and the Disgrace Reprise is the 3 minute chopped off section.

    The Discogs blurb says limited edition and for once it appears to be the case as there isn’t a single Discogs member who has it and there isn’t even one for sale at a vastly inflated price!

    Anyway, I thought this would be the perfect place to see if there is anyone out there with a rip of it (also I am hoping Best provide some long overdue reissues of their other material this or next year).
