INFO > Depending on your fancy, Nation 12 was:

A) An experimental project of Dennis Leigh
B) An extension of Bomb The Bass
C) A precursor to Ramp/Slacker
D) All of the above

Comprising John Foxx, Kurt Rogers, Tim Simenon, Simon Rogers, and the late Shem McCauley, the short-lived Nation 12 released only two singles: “Remember” (1990) and “Electrofear” (1991), both on Rhythm King. However, the collective also recorded an album’s worth of tracks, which finally saw the light of day via Tape Modern in 2005.

  1. Excellent tune, loved the previous release to this with the awesome ‘Listen to the drummer’ :)

  2. Most would probably remember the track Into The Wonderful that was used in the games Gods by The Bitmap Brothers.

  3. snap , crackle, POP next to my ear ! I am the Fear !

    thanks Shelf

  4. Actually, Tim Simenon was not participating on the “Electrofear” single by Nation 12. That was Foxx/McCauley/Rogers, who also did the duties on the eventually released “Electrofear” album. Tim only collaborated on the earlier “Remember” single. The 2005 “Electrofear” album only ever got released when a fan who had a cassette dub of the material offered it up since the masters for the album as recorded no longer existed. Speaking of Orlando, I bought my copy of “Electrofear” at The Drop Shop there, and finally, years afterward, won an auction from an Orlando DJ on EBay for the long-sought after “Remember” 12 inch.
