Suction Records is proud to present "Hand-Picked Fragments", the debut full-length release by Skanfrom. Skanfrom is a robot from Germany named Roger Semsroth.

For those of you who complained that Suction only releases music by Solvent and Lowfish, here you go.  It has taken us over 4 years to find a suitable robot to join Suction's full-time ranks.  Skanfrom is obviously the man for the job, blending elements of modern electro with the raw, stripped down approach of early 80's synth-pop.  Try to imagine the melancholy electro of Bochum Welt or Solvent, mixed with the stark, muffled robot-pop of Kraftwerk's "Radioactivity".

Skanfrom has been releasing his distinct brand of minimal electronic pop for several years on his own A.D.S.R. label — but if you blinked you could have missed out, because his A.D.S.R. releases have been strictly limited to small pressings of vinyl-only singles and cassettes.

Suction felt it was necessary to release a retrospective of Skanfrom's obscure, underground career.  "Hand-Picked Fragments" is a selection of Suction's favourite tracks from Skanfrom's sold-out A.D.S.R. back catalog, along with several new and exclusive tracks recorded exclusively for Suction.  And for those hardcore Skanfrom fans who already collected the A.D.S.R. vinyl releases, "Hand-Picked Fragments" is also available as a limited vinyl-ep, featuring only the new Skanfrom compositions along with an unlisted and unauthorised cover version that is exclusive to the vinyl-format.

Skanfrom supplied Suction with a delicious bowl of electronic fragments to choose from and we've hand-picked only the best for you.
