Strange Beauty is a collection of his unreleased material made circa 1979-1983 with instrumentation consisting of analogue drum machines, monosynths, an early FM synths, saxophone, tape delays, piano, and guitar. Demdike Stare's Miles Whittaker and Sean Canty were havily influenced by Orior’s sole 7” release, the Elevation EP (1979) for the obscure Crystal Groove label which included a track on Frank Maiers' V-o-D label on his Snatch Paste compilation. Whittaker and Canty wrote to Maier and received a reply from a very surprised but helpful Jeff Sharp, who was credited as “Clip” on the original 7”. Jeff delighted Whittaker and Canty with some unreleased tapes dug from his attic and 140 new-old stock '45s of Orior's 3 track Elevation EP.

The duo went on to release this collection on their DDS label as the album Stanage Beauty. They also sold the 140 copies of the Elevation '45s on Boomkat which sold out of the in just a few hours after their release. The remarkable thing about Sharp's work is that it predates but has many similarities to artists such as Coil, Angelo Badalamenti, and the earl 90's dark ambient. As such his sound fits in nicely with the current late 70's library music/soundtrack/hauntology/lo-fi synth craze. Read more on Last.fm.
