Now I listen to what most people would consider to be weird shit. My wife approached me a coupla weeks back stating that my listening habits are probably not good for my mental health. I of course disagree but if if she catches me listening to this she’ll think I’ve finally lost the plot.

What we have here is an instructional birthing album recorded somewhere in Alaska, 1982. Having said that the instructional narration is only at the beginning of the record so don’t allow that to put you off the record. However, beyond that particular element, this is basically an early synth record that utilises ARP 2600, ARP Odyssey, Polymoog, harmonica/ synthesiser interface, Eventide Omnipressor and Roland vocoder. Originally a radio broadcast exhumed from a C60 cassette, listening now it’s clear that this has appeal beyond it’s intended purpose and fits in nicely with all the early analogue synthesizer/ kosmische reissues of late, and certainly deserves to be heard by a new generation. The A side builds with poppy synth hooks and then veers off into more droney terrain. Over on the B side rudimentary synth phrases weave around bloopy, liquid new age electronics. Although it’s pretty blissed out there are a few more intense moments. Must have been pretty crazy piping this into the ears while sprogging.

First ever vinyl pressing in an edition of 500 copies.
