This band is said to be the very first industrial band ever. This album includes material recorded from 75-79 and was only available through the Throbbing Gristle fanclub until now. What is delivered here is very experimental electronic music and sound art. It's basically various different sound samples, effects, noises and some voice here and there. You would not listen to this as music. I assume that you would listen to this as some sort of an art form. The little music included here sounds as if it came from the 70's sci-fi classic Logan's Run. There are also quite a lot of experimental tracks that are just various noises sometimes combined with talking overlayed on top of them. I guess this band deserves credit for being original for their time. I'm sure that there are many people out there that like what this band has to offer, but I personally can't see what they get from this scratchy noisy experimental mess. If you want thirteen tracks of experimental noise with a 70's retro vibe then this is for you.
