Various Artists - "The Last Supper" (Adventures in Reality ARR007) 1984








Fantastic, faultless Industrial cassette compilation, with fanzine, from 1984.Not a duff track on this,and a spectrum zx computer program to boot!......spectrum ZX programs themselves sounded not unlike some of the Drill'n'Bass stuff that appeared in the 90's from acts like Squarepusher and some left-field Aphex Twin.
The weakest tracks come from german group Gorilla Aktiv, but only because they are a carbon copy of early Deutsche Amerikanishe Freundschaft, but that's no bad thing 'cus by 1984 DAF were shite, and Gorilla Aktiv were excellent.
Best Track, probably the Smersh one; a distorted kind of House musick for an insane asylum.
Included with an 'Adventures in Reality' Fanzine, which was based in Coventry,and ran from 1980 to 1984.All these tracks were exclusive,and not to my knowledge released anywhere else!
Pro-printed cassette with j-card in snap case. Packaged together with a 16-page booklet, including a 3-page interview with SPK.
Some j-cards are black print on blue paper; others are blue & black print on white paper.
The end of side B contains a computer program for the ZX Spectrum computer, containing the Adventures In Reality catalogue.
SPK tracks recorded live at Brixton Ace, 20.4.83.
Smersh track recorded 1983 at Don't Look In The Basement Studios.
Bourbonese Qualk track recorded August 1, 1983.
