Few artists out there with a story as fascinating as Michael O’Shea, a street musician who due to finances had to construct his own instrument. O’Shea had travelled around the world and owned instruments such as the sitar or zelochord but had to sell them to fund his lifestyle. The resulting instrument - build from things such as an old door and chopsticks - created a profoundly DIY - in the true sense - take on minimalism and traditional forms of Asian and North African music. Originally issued in 1982 on Wire/Dome fellows Bruce Gilbert and Graham Lewis' Dome Records.
