The Sea Of Wires – Individually Screened (SOW 2 self -released Cassette 1980)


This one from my misty past. I remember posting my blank cassette to the address in sounds DIY corner and receiving this bubbly electronic miesterwerk in return.Coventry, England, synthesizer duo The Sea of Wires were another shadowy outfit from the electronic Dark Ages, those very early 1980s, just as synths started to get smaller and more affordable. Releasing just a few self-released tapes and making a few compilation appearances, they mostly relied on beat-free sequencer pulses with something of a Kraut influence, plus the occasional nod to the past glories of the Radiophonic Workshop. Since this tape is SOW #2, one rather suspects that it had a predecessor(it did, "Diversions"which you can download here!), but information about them is beyond scarce. A few years later and they’d have been on ICR  one suspects, and more widely known and loved. Anyway, enjoy this one at least.

Keep up the fight my friend! Very excited to have gotten the Sea Of Wires download that I've been wanting for all these years! Hope to see more comps like the DIY Electronics for the Ipad Generation if you get around to it! Cheers Jonny!
