Noise Rock - Industrial Rock. Underground for years, it survived on the power of an idea. No key, no vocals, no set rhythm. Hhhmmmmm feedback forever. Supervised by Lou Reed and faithfully re-mastered to the last squeal. Says Reed, “The out of print “Quad” has been replicated for all formats including a perfect vinyl version play- able on your stereo turntable with the original rear sections moved to the centre of the front left/right speakers. It’s worth getting a turntable to hear this. I myself bought a Linn to calibrate this great sound and am playing it through Wilson Watts and Puppies. Hear it as we did on Scott Hull’s Duntechs.” “We worked from digital transfers (95k 24bit) made from the origi- nal analogue masters. The original label supplied us with these files and photo copies of the analogue reels INCLUDING copies of Bob Ludwig’s original mastering notes.”
An act of love for an act of sound.
