Our Story

Sudeten Crèche was first created by Yvette Döll in 1980 as an artistic idea. It took music form in late 1980, with experimental sounds and tape loops containing a mixture of voice, short-wave radio interference and synthesisers.

These projects had been influenced by ‘noise artists’ of the 60s and 70s, including The Velvet Underground, Throbbing Gristle as well as Tangerine Dream. None of the earliest Sudeten Crèche material (created in 1980-81) was ever commercially released.

In 1982, ‘Europe in the Year Zero’, a compilation EP to benefit ‘No Nukes’, featured two tracks from Sudeten Crèche: 'Dance' and 'Are Kisses out of Fashion?' along with tracks from Colour-me-Pop and Yazoo.

In 1983 the band recorded and released the 'Kindergarten’ EP for Illuminated records. In doing so Sudeten Crèche joined an influential stable of avant-garde artists, including 23 Skidoo, Portion Control, 400 Blows, D.A.F., Legendary Pink Dots, Data and Kan Kan. That same year, Sudeten Crèche supported Nico on the UK leg of her European tour.

In 2014 Döll and Carlin began assembling and reconstructing original Sudeten Crèche material developed between 1980 and 1985. The intention was to create an album representative of that early period.

Sudeten Crèche have just released a new EP, ‘Nothing is True’, on Slow Club Productions. The band is also completing an album featuring some of their earliest material plus one or two new - more details to be announced.
