First ever issue of this unreleased collaborative album from the mid-80s (although the instrumental tracks are theoretically the same as those found on the Moebius/Plank En Route CD, released by the Curious Music label in the US). "Ludwig's Law is a relative puzzle that is only now taking a coherent shape. By 1985 the final releases of the second generation Red Crayola were behind. It was at this time that Mayo Thompson met Moebius. Moebius has been delivering an album a year to Sky, often producing them with Conny Plank. Moebius and Conny had been building basic tracks in an emulator. They invited Mayo Thompson to write lyrics and sing. Mayo Thompson had just discovered the work of Werner Büttner and Albert Oehlen -- artists whose language played on pretense and the potential for misrepresentation, among other things. Mayo senses a place to start in their book Angst vor Nice. For lyrics, a selection was 'sampled.' Sky rejected the master, Ludwig's Law was regulated to the vault."
