about

Stretcher was the first album by myself after the group split and immediately moved into more popular territory than CSH. By 1985 the 'industrial' sound was becoming tedious and a more optimistic note was in the air. The album is actually a compilation of EPs from Canada and the UK that was assembled for Australia - a high point in SH's commercial existence.

Stretcher is marked by the a sound that defines that era - the DX7 synthesiser! It marrs a fairly lame version of Dead Eyes that was recorded for Canada but works well on Big Blue Is Back - the first recording by SH that uses MIDI. But here also the Korg Modular System that first appears on CSH reaches a crux on the track Spurned.

Still it is hardly a normal album and gained much comment at the time - especially the pygmy sample on Oscar's Grind!
