TURMAN, ROBERT - WAY DOWN (LP)


"New pressing on the Spanish Burka For Everybody label. Originally released as a small run cassette in 1987, only to fall into tape label obscurity, ROBERT TURMAN's industrial genre-bending masterpiece album 'Way Down' finally has been excavated for a proper vinyl reissue. This album solidifies Turman as a cut above the rest with respect to his talent and his natural ear for experimental composition. Turman first came onto the industrial scene in the late '70s as the ominous "other half" of legendary noise outfit NON, alongside BOYD RICE, together releasing the now classic first NON single, 'Mode of Infection' b/w 'Knife Ladder' 7" in 1977. After parting ways, Turman went on an excursion of self-released cassettes to which he fused every possible influence at his disposal, culling together past habits of experimental know-how and going forward into uncharted terrain. This vinyl reissue of 'Way Down' serves as the blueprint of what Turman sought to render as a very accessible minimal synth/industrial album, yet keeping it just obtuse enough to make it one of the most brilliant and engaging albums to be ushered into the canon of '80s experimental culture."
