“Sex is Out” in Swiss iTunes charts
“Sex Is Out, Ich Bin Geklont” is has entered the iTunes Top 200 Tracks Switzerland Electronic Charts at #33!
This is amazing for a track that’s 36 years old!
It has recently been re-released on the download / streaming album “Early 80s” by Schaltkreis Wassermann. PJ Wassermann had re-discovered the original master tape and it was still in good condition. (Well, you have to bake these old tapes in the oven at 50° Celsius for two days to get them ready for playback.) PJ remastered this minimal synth track for this release.
“Sex is Out” had been the first Schaltkreis single in 1981. The style could be called electro-punk with its brute youthful energy. PJ Wassermann: “We did it with very primitive technical tools like a TEAC 4track tape machine. But we had an ARP Avatar guitar synth that you can hear prominently on this recording. And then of course Stella Wassermann’s wonderful voice! She loved being played backwards…”

Original bio from the 80s. Actually the text is a parody, it had been taken from the bio of “The Temptations”, only a few words got exchanged.
