Unheard and unreleased for more than 30 years, the music of Rodion G.A. is a treasure. Based out of Cluj, Romania and operating under Ceausescu's stifling regime, Rodion Rosca composed and recorded much of his band's music on a DIY home studio set-up of early drum machines, Tesla reel to reels, and live instruments. Although gaining a fair amount of domestic radio play at the time, he only ever had two tracks released on record at the time by state label Electrecord. Now rediscovered by documentary film maker Sorin Luca and Romanian producer collective Future Nuggets, his pioneering Eastern Bloc prog / electronic fusions finally receive a worldwide release on for the first time on The Lost Tapes, released by Strut in association with Future Nuggets and Ambassador's Reception.
"A raw, hypnotic and utterly absorbing brew of distorted synth riffs and Krautrock rhythm." **** — Q magazine
"Dissident, garden shed, East-bloc space rock... Monstrous!" **** — Mojo
