Double LP version. "Red Tape is a personal journey for Brooks. His inspiration couldn't be further from the techno giants that loomed large over his debut. The Weimar cabaret effect; Lord Byron's dirty escapades in a villa with narcotics; the dark-room, skinhead sex of modern Berlin's rapturous night-time culture; Nazi suppression of the arts and the sound of concentration camp walls; the howling winds of graveyards in Edinburgh at 3AM; the music of industrial machinery; the flummoxing notion that nothing new or riveting had happened in a gay environment in Britain for as long as he had known it. If his first outing was a last stand in honor of the party, this one is an all out, glorious, twisted, sinful menace. There is talk of Brooks assuming a transvestite persona; becoming an imaginary female tape op for Brian Eno in the 70s. He's got her all worked out -haircut and everything."
