COLLINS, NICOLAS - DEVIL'S MUSIC (2LP m/cg+)


""Devil's Music" and more! EM Records presents the vinyl and CD re-release of Nicolas Collins' live radio sampling masterpiece, originally released on vinyl in 1986, served up in all its stuttering glory, a time capsule of the mid-80s New York City airwaves, acclaimed by Philip Sherburne as "an early template for techno", with a feel somewhat akin to scratching turntablist madness, a block-rocking party put through a blender and reassembled by body-popping demons. And more: "Real Landscape", a 1987 "remix" recorded in Europe (originally released on cassette), and (CD only) "The Spark Heard 'Round The World", a fascinating tape piece sourced from multi-band radio and scanner recordings, plus (also CD only, alas) video of a live performance of "Devil's Music" from 1987 in Birmingham, UK. And if you're still not satisfied, CD purchasers also get a downloadable software version of the original hardware circuitry used for "Devil's Music" which, a la David Tudor, constitutes the original composition itself. Make your own "Devil's Music"!" (label info) all covers are bent
