Minoy - "Celebration of the Sunrise" (Minoy Cassetteworks 1987)

Apparently Minoy did all his recording after midnight. Therefore one assumes that the title of this C-90 alludes to the end of his recording session one evening/night, and witnessing a sunrise. Obviously a cause for celebration after hours of making 'Downer' drone soundscapes like these!
The throbbing underwater gong scraping of Side 2 being the lonely 'Nightride' of the reclusive artist, and the semi-tuned short wave radio noise-fest of Side one is the sound of a dysfunctional planet waking up to another day of meaningless endeavours,that ultimately ends in doom!

Seems a happy go lucky type of chap, don't he?
Think a happy thought and it'll all go away; or listen to the cathartic experience that is......Minoy.

I used to have a lot of Minoy cassettes when I was younger. Sadly, i didn't take care of them, and they are gone.

I know, I did the same with loads of cassettes. it was the disposable, and reusable nature of the medium. and nobody thought for one minute that this stuff would ever be remembered beyond the first listen.Rather like all those early TV shows that got wiped to save space.
Now we know better....or do we?
