Up Int Smoke, The Public House Brand and Top Up Music Management
Up Int Smoke, The Public House Brand and Top Up Music Management are proud to present Strange Circuits at Hagglers, Sheffield, UK.
Strange Circuits was the first band ever signed to the legendary industrial label, Wax Trax! Their single, Industrial Living (EBR 001 A), became a cult sensation and led to the group touring Europe. Time has not lessened the group’s impact as copies of the original 7″ still sell well online and have become a collector’s item. Strange Circuits also appear on The New Wave Complex vol: 8, a compilation of 80’s underground acts
Strange Circuits recorded and performed at the very beginning of the Industrial and Electronic movement spearheaded by Wax Trax!
As time passed band members went on to play in other Wax Trax! acts, including Ministry. Singer/songwriter, producer Rodney Bakerr, used the experience he’d gained to open Rockin’ House Records, one of the longest running, single owner, dance music labels in the world. And working with the Roland Synthesizer Company he is credited as writing the first House music drum patterns for the 808 & 909 TR drum machines. His work is in print in the Roland Rhythm Guide book and Roland Users Group magazine.
In the 90’s Strange Circuits reunited to release new music under the name Warm Leatherette. One of their singles, Black Hair Red Lips, appeared on the Delinquent Records sampler Industrial Baby (DR016).
Strange Circuits over time has experimented with new lineups, and new music using several creative vocalists, stretching their musical sound and landscape. Rodney Bakerr aka (Rodney Baker) is also a well known, and Award winning, Fine Artist with his art being seen in several Museums including the Museum of the Art Institute of Chicago.
