Clock DVA ‎– "The Sex Beyond Entanglement" (DVAtion) 1978

Staying in Sheffield,and also following on from the "1980:The First Fifteen Minutes" ep, we are naturally led to Clock DVA, who released loads of obscure tapes around 1978/9 on Newton's own DVAtion label. This being the best of the ones I've heard. DVA in its best Cabaret Voltaire style Old Skool Industrial mode. I used to think that Clock DVA were shit from 'Thirst' onwards, and that this was their best stuff by miles;but I played 'Thirst' today, and thought it was fantatstic! Even those mid-atlantic movie trailer vocals didn't get on my nerves......I must have mellowed in my middle ageness!?(How depressing!)
I dare not play 'Advantage' for the fear that I may love that as well!?
This cassette is great chaotic, stream of consciousness, abstract underwater pop music for Wannabe outsiders.
I just love how this sounds; after listening to millions of hours of recorded music over the last 40 years,my lifeforce has decided that this muffled garbled racket is in fact, "Perfection"?

A4 Edge
A5 1958

IF YOU COULD STAND THEM HERE, YOU COULD STAND THEM EVERYWHERE.
TO BE MORE SPECIFIC, I CAN NOT STAND THEIR VOCALS - THIS MACH-MACHO HELL. THE SYNTH, THOUGH, IS GREAT - A BRAIN DANCE SURGERY!!!
