Gotta find a spot for at least the first three tracks of side 1 of the An Electric Storm album by The White Noise.

A more contemporary solid electronic album is the Peace Orchestra release from Peter Kruder. Actually, I suppose it's old hat by now.

Do Original Rockers, Massive Attack, Bally Sagoo, Black Star Liner, The Orb, or Eno count as electronic in your book? All of them have a permanent place in my heart. Among others. There are times when I probably listen to nothing but electronic music for a week or so. Bye bye, world music cred!

Sorry I can't get around to individual tracks right at this moment. Perhaps with electronic music I'm even more of an album person than with "regular" music.

Joy Division Decades - definitely
Roxy Music - The Bogus Man

The hairsplitter and enculeur des mouches in me wants to say that Tangerine Dream and Phaedra were more strictly (kraut) rockers.

Terry Riley's A Rainbow In Curved Air - mostly electronic. Also his mostly ignored masterpiece Shri Camel from 1980.

Uhmmm, now I'm afraid you'll have to substantiate that comment a little!

German I agree with, but rockers? Kraftwerk perhaps pop at times, but definitely a precursor to er modern dance music, who knows what genre they call it, but you know what I mean - the Orb, Groove Armada perhaps??

the tangs, well, earlier stuff has very little to compare with, and sure when they got going (which is what I like) it rocked, but is it rock? In a slightly sad way for me, I don't seem to get off on them as much as I did, but the tracks I mentioned still move me, especially when loud!

(and not to another room I hear Adam say!)
:)

Hiya Howard, funny place to meet up with you again, hey, where you going...

hehe

Sorry, that didn't mean "Yes" it meant "Of course and you are right"

Sounds From The Ground are among my very favourite electronic sounds. Nice touch of reggae and dub and much more besides.
