about

Another strange concept opus in the manner of "Gravamina For Uxoricide" with all sorts of influences, a lot of Throbbing Gristle and Konstruktivits especially, sci-fi and horror stuff (for a while we taped every good movie on TV to resource as sound material). Elements as diverse as Dome, Hawkwind, Cluster, Heldon, and much more can be heard, and a lot that was our own different/unique way of doing things. Amazing what you can do with limited instrumentation when you put your mind to it (basically a synthesizer and Casio keyboard, plus home made gadgets, tapes and voice). It's one of the first thematic multi-part works (constructed as a lot of separate pieces then later cut and mixed together) that we did that was quite successful. It's quite an intense listen, and very much of its era.
