    In January 1992, IKON entered the studio to record what was supposed tob e the band`s debut single „As Time Goes By“ b/w „Never Ending“. Over three days from 17 january, a total of 8 songs were recorded and the band was reasonably satisfied with the results. Shortly afterwards, an accident lead tot he partial erasure oft he drums for «As Time Goes By“, making it impossible to finish and also wiping the plans for it tob e the main single track. The remaining songs were mixed over the following weeks, but the band was not happy with the results overall, so the project was shelved.

    By mid 1992, IKON decided to attempt to remix the tracks and select another single option, but this time encountered a new problem: the tape was beginning to oxidize, making it impossible to play. The band was faced with the prospect of being forced to use the initial unsatisfactory mixes.

    In 2016 this original IKON session, known as «As Time Goes By“, was given one final facelift by repairing and cleaning up any tape issues, and presenting the songs in a more natural light. It was decided that no more songs would be added to CD1, not to detract from IKON’s studio debut.

    CD2 contains the complete January 1st Arthouse live show, which has never been released in full. This show was recorded within a couple of weeks of the Frontline session, and is a a fitting addition.

    Although many of these tracks have been mixed on numerous occasions over the years, and feature on various CD’S, the session known as ‘As Time Goes By’, the original IKON studio session, was given one final facelift in 2016, repairing and cleaning up any tape issues, and presenting the songs in a more natural light. It was decided that no more songs would be added to CD1, not to detract from IKON’s studio debut. CD2 contains the complete January 1st Arthouse live show, which has never been released in full.

    Chiron – The Sun Goes Down

    Chiron – The Sun Goes Down
    Label: Dark Vinyl Records ‎– DV97
    Format: CD, Album, Limited Edition
    Country: Germany
    Released: 14 Jan 2022
    Style: Darkwave

    After 7 years of silence, the Australian Darkwave/ PostPunk act CHIRON returns with a new album. Chiron is the brainchild of ex-IKON vocalist Michael Aliani, supported by Dino Molinaro (IKON) on bass and cello. In addition, Leanne Coe can be heard on saxophone for the first time.
    Influenced by groups like Joy Division and the early New Order, Michael left IKON in 1997 and started his project «Chiron».
    “The Sun goes Down” is certainly Chiron’s darkest and best release yet. Themes like isolation, loneliness and loss are the focus.
    Of course, typical PostPunk and Joy Division elements are included, but especially the dark tracks with saxophone reflect the range and development of CHIRON.
    The album also features a Remix by JM Lederman (The Weathermen, Ghost & Writer…)

    BLACK Magazin, Review January 2022:
    Man mag ja von der australischen Dark Wave-Formation IKON halten was man will, aber in den letzten Jahren haben sie es doch etwas arg mit den Wiederauflagen alter Veröffentlichungen bzw. Singles-, Live- & Demo-Compilations übertrieben. Die Diskografie von CHIRON, der Band des ehemaligen IKON-Sängers Michael Carrodus ist dagegen recht übersichtlich und „The Sun Goes Down“ das erste richtige Album nach sehr langer Zeit. Inzwischen ist CHIRON zum Trio geschrumpft und neben IKON-Bassist Dino Molinaro noch Leanne Coe mit ihrem Saxophon an Bord. Gerade dieses für Bands aus dem Dark Wave-Genre ungewöhnliche Instrument (von den THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS mal abgesehen) sorgt im Soundgewand von CHIRON für eine frische Note und erinnert gleichzeitig an die alten CLOCK DVA zu „Advantage“-Zeiten. Natürlich klingt die dunkel-volle Bariton-Stimme von Michael Carrodus (inzwischen Aliani) immer noch nach Ian Curtis und Adi Newton (bzw. nach alten IKON) und der Bass nach Post Punk, aber der Rest ist schon deutlich elektronischer, rhythmischer bis experimenteller gehalten. Nach einigen Durchläufen stellt sich jedoch schnell eine latente Sogwirkung ein, der man sich schwer entziehen kann und das Album zu einem frühen Höhepunkt des noch jungen Jahres 2022 macht! „The Sun Goes Down“ endet übrigens mit einem absolut lässigen Remix von „Darker Days“ durch Jean Marc Ledderman (u.a. THE WEATHERMEN), welcher nicht etwa die Sonne unter gehen, sondern regelrecht aufgehen lässt! Gebt CHIRON unbedingt eine Chance, denn das Album hat weitaus mehr Aufmerksamkeit verdient und die vor allem über die regulären IKON-Kreise hinaus gehen sollte. (Marco Fiebag)

    Chiron – The Best Of

    Chiron – The Best Of
    Label: Wave Records ‎– W047
    Format: CD, Compilation
    Country: Brazil
    Released: 20 Jan 2015
    Style: Goth Rock, Electro

    Available for the very first time, ‘THE BEST OF CHIRON’ through Wave Records Brasil will delight fans of both Chiron, and the original line up of popular cult dark wave band Ikon.
    Formed in 1997 by vocalist Michael Aliani (aka Carrodus) after he left Ikon. The original lineup included legendary Ikon bass player Dino Molinaro and members of Russian Rock band B2, Shura Bi-2 and Lyova Bi-2.

    This release features tracks from Chiron’s debue album, ‘Eve’, their second epic album, ‘Slipping Away’ and a host of rarities and remixes that have been made available for this release for the very first time. Add to this a number of tracks from the yet to be released albums, ‘We Own The Night’ and ‘The Sun Goes Down’ and this release will surely please lovers of original music.

    Dark, dreamy, intense, and at times frantic. It is sleek, dark Avant guard music that cannot be pigeon holed to just one style. Though Chiron never set boundaries, one consistency remains, the deep spine tingling vocals of Michael Aliani.

    Track List:


    03. BLEED
    04. NO ORDER
    07. ASCENT
    08. HATE
