In late 1982, Jessie Last and Malcom Smith, both from Cambridge, Massachusetts, launched their pioneering electro-experimental-techno project Dok-U-Ment. They self-released a very limited self-titled tape, and it caught the ear of Sleep Chamber's John Zewizz, who joined the project while trying to convince Last and Smith to join Sleep Chamber. In 1983 they re-released the first tape in edited and extended form on John Zewizz's Inner-X-Musick label. One track was also licensed to Gut Level Music's 1983 Gut Level One: A Compilation, and two tracks were included on the 1984 Inner X-Musick compilation The Oblique Collection.... Smith and John Zewizz became increasingly involved with Genesis P-Orridge's Temple ov Psychick Youth, and supported Psychic TV on their first American tour; the Dok-U-Ment was terminated just three years after it had started. Although an output of about ten officially released tracks isn't much, the influence and quality of those tracks simply cannot be ignored. This LP includes the entirety of the original self-titled tape, plus two tracks that were added for the 1983 Inner-X-Musick reissue.
