Finally, an expanded vinyl release for one of the early Colin Potter tapes from 1981. The whole of the original album (which thankfully contains no 'singing' although voice sources are used) is included plus 4 additional tracks that appeared on compilations.
The tracks have been expertly remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley.The record is sleeved in a replica of the original cassette artwork by Jonathan Coleclough. Every copy includes a double sided postcard insert with notes from Colin.
Review from The Wire, August 2018 'Originally released in 1982 through his label ICR, this production by Potter registers as a singular amalgamation of its time. It’s heralded as some of the earliest work to experiment with abstract synthesis and heavy percussive electronics, and then genre-bent through minimal, krautrock synthpop and dark ambient. Notwithstanding precedents like Conrad Schnitzler’s 1978 'Con', Tangerine Dream's 'Rubycon' and Monoton’s 'Monotonprodukt', this LP’s industrial overtones and neurotic tempos anticipate contemporary techno. From the macabre vibratos oscillating thorough ‘The State’ to the chopped and screwed horror of ‘Away From The Public Eye’, the way Potter upends categorical definitions is unparalled for its time'.
