Nick Carter describes this remarkable album as "the culmination of a slightly obsessive idea I had about sound." Built around heavily distorted piano backed with bass, drums, and touches of guitar and sitar, its six tracks are frequently dreamy and hypnotic (reflecting Carter's belief that "repetitive music radiates an unusual ethereal depth"), but can also be unnervingly intense. Recorded in Bristol, England, in 1978-'79, it was pressed in a tiny run aimed at generating major label interest; when that failed to materialize, Carter left music behind. This is its long-overdue first reissue, and comes with background notes and images.
