ndstry OMG, she was always perfect. In searching out her imperfections thru the development of time we found only our own embellishments.

Favourite track; really?

I pray I never forget, Tom mentioned looking for that perfect sound e.g. a watermelon falling from a great height and smashing etc. In our search for creativity down the great wheel of time, "thank you, Tom; thank you."

The Epilektrician This great album that starts to display the general sort of music that would become the Since The Accident LP, now expanded with some previously unfeatured music from the same sessions. These new tracks are a welcome addition and more or less fits in well with the tried and true favourites that were on the previous CDr edition. A different version of the track "303b The East Is Red" was previously to be found as a free download on the Sevcom website, but was then titled "Elevator". Favorite track: In Her Hair.

about

Hi There. Please note this version is an extension of the vinyl LP available at Dark Entries. It does not have tracks that appear on Clifford Darling. It has new tracks that have been restored from the 1982 sessions.

Around 1982 we were playing the live shows that would become the Blubberknife C90. At the same time I was trying to make pop music, working solo with the new cheap toys of the era - the tb303, mc202 and so on. I didn't really know how pop music worked but was keen to get away from the so-called industrial noise ghetto. These recordings weren't really organised as a coherent release - instead I made cassettes called Snappy Carrion and 80's Cheesecake that were more like reports on how I was progressing.

It was disappointing to see these cassettes become expensive rarities, and around 2000 I made a cheap CD compilation. In 2014, DE asked to issue this as a vinyl record and in trying to optimise that I looked at some of the trials I had abandoned. Usually the problem was I had added something that sucked, and back then had no way to get rid of it. If nothing else, the new century has brought ways to perform microsurgery on sound. The tracks THE RITUALISTIC, BABIES and KAI KAI are heard here for the first time but are completely formed from the parts I had backed up at the time. It's rather cryogenic.
