"With this release Matt Wand has put together something that simultaneously celebrates a little heard of record shop from an obscure suburb of manchester, its links with the late 70's / early 80's manchester music scene, some of the unsung characters that frequented that far-flung outpost of cultural delinquency and their doomed plots to bring down the musical establishment. The music itself runs the gamut of minimal synth anthems, d.i.y. jazz punk, grey industrial sci-fi and new wave disco crossovers. All are linked by an outsider sensibility and also a determination that any skill deficiencies could be overcome by sticking to the new born mantra of the times "Minimalist Music for the Masses" Matt escaped his post punk cassette culture past in the later eighties by forming the cartoon-improvising, electronic sampling beast known as Stock, Hausen & Walkman. Often accused of "Making music ABOUT music!" I'm not sure that's a bad thing considering how much music we find ourselves wading through these days." (label info) comes in printed card wallet, with 8 pp. art paper riso printed booklet containing texts by Matt Wand and Sebastian Weetabix
