Caroline K ‎– "Now Wait For Last Year" (Earthly Delights ‎– EARTH 001) 1987

The Sister-in-Law of the group for Nocturnal Emissions was Caroline K. Yes, she was Married to Nigel Ayers (Mr Nocturnal) brother. Whether this qualified her for the group, or she was already in before the nuptials is up for conjecture, but she did manage a solo album before her early death.
Don't expect an Industrial classic here, because she was obviously a German Kosmische fan.You know, those Electronic albums from the 1970's which basically involved huge banks of modular synthesisers, and a long haired West German to rest his hands on the keys and jiggle his chunky fingers about a bit.Taking note of this albums Phillip K. dick-ensian title;think Vangelis' Phillip K. Dick movie soundtrack and you ain't far off what we have served up here.Lots of reverb laden synth pads and slow chord changes, and a slow tempo drum box marking 4/4 time with a string of dull thuds.
It reminds me more of those post '77 German electronic albums, done when no-one was interested anymore, and synthesisers had been made more user friendly. She ain't no Cosey Fanni Tutti clone that's for sure.

Tracklist:
A The Happening World 20:18
B1 Animal Lattice 4:49
B2 Chearth 5:56
B3 Tracking With Close-Ups 4:39

Further evidence of collaboration-- "Never give up" from Nocturnal Emissions = "Tracking with Close ups"... Only major difference is the inclusion of 'self-help' messages...

Never Give Up

breathe deeply and relax completely....

you’re just letting go,....

unwinding, completely relaxing now....

allowing  the quietness of spirit to begin....

to come in....

and it feels good....

and it feels good....

and it feels good....

to unwind....

and let go....

so relaxed and so at ease....

you’re relaxed and at ease and at peace....

with yourself....

the world and everyone in it.......
