The first release,a C-30 Cassette, from Coventry's Attrition(as seen on the Last Supper compilation from Adventures in Reality).
An excercise in electronic industrial minimalism, with a couple of synth's and a well-used echo machine. There's even an industrial disco track,'Shrinkwrap', which was a popular direction for many formerly industrial groups; and generally one to be avoided. If you close your eyes you can just imagine a sparce gathering of Goths dancing jerkily to this on a dark dancefloor in some awful club called the spiderweb ,or something just as naff, back in '83.
But the rest of the tape is most acceptable,if a tad over reliant on echo's for weirdness.
Many thanks goes to Alan Rider of Adventures in Reality for this tape.
Martin Bowes - vocals, lyrics, rythms, Julia Niblock - vocals, Ashley Niblock - Synths.
