This lot were 'Weird', sucked into the prog vacuum left by Punk Rock,totally oblivious to that rowdy phenomenon,due to their complete and utter mis-comprehension of anything vaguely proletarian in origin. But the weirdest of the lot was the Tangerine Dream worshipping teenager.
Of course this kind of geek could also find himself a home in Industrial Music, like Chris Carter of Throbbing Gristle,or they could end up like Ian Boddy.
The DIY era gave these misfits a chance to get their electronic symphonies out to bother the public,and so they did.
This stuff can sound like anything from a pale shadow of Steve Reich, to a radio shack Klaus Schulz,to mid-eighties Testcard music.
This album manages to fit in all of these category's into 45 minutes; but at least he uses a Boss Dr. Rhythm drum box,which was my first drum machine, and I wish i still had it.
