about

This CD collates the choice material from Alto Stratus cassette releases originally issued under the guise of Electric Junk. This choice selection, cobbles all the best bits, all montaged together (kinda "Faust Tapes" fashion) condensed into a 74 minute segued opus. Excepting those few that were mind-boggled by the tapes this, more palatable/consistent release, will be the first chance most will have to hear this outrageously bizarre music, all at the twisted end of the Alto Stratus (1983 to early 1984) sound. Beware - on headphones it's liable to mangle your brain!
