"Electro-plated antipodean-chameleon Ash Wednesday's deep catalogue of minimal-wave and early-electro compositions form an incredibly impressive and desperately under-acknowledged body of work. From the deliriously bouncy new wave pop of 1980's "Love By Numbers" to the Elvis-armed-with-an-analog-synth bombast of 1983's "Boom Boom Baby", Ash joined or created notable minimal-wave/experimental ensembles The Metronomes, Thealonian Music and Modern Jazz alongside solo work. Stark, dark, euphoric, snide and wonky yet joyous and accessible, these experimental/electro (sometimes rockabilly-tinged) sides have long been cherished by knowing collectors but are largely reissued here for the very first time. Remastered, in all their pristine synthetic glory, from the original mastertapes and presented with exclusive liner notes and rare photos. Ash would later join with both Nina Hagen and Einstürzende Neubauten. But that is another story... " (label info) includes 20 page full colour booklet with exclusive liner notes and rare photos
