"In October 1982 the youthful O Yuki Conjugate played their first gig at the now-defunct Newshouse pub in Nottingham, England to seven people and a dog. Three incarnations, seven albums and 25 years later all members past and present got together in a West London studio to record an album in an afternoon as a way of marking this unlikely anniversary. The result -- lovingly remixed by producer Rob Jenkins -- is OYC25, five tracks of post-industrial, fourth world-ish, dirty ambience. OYC25 finds the band in fine form, with an abundance of dub-like bass, micro processed rhythms and plangent pads. The package includes a full length DVD of live recordings and rare footage that offer a unique insight into the band's history, together with a complete alternate mix of the album. The whole thing comes in a gatefold sleeve beautifully designed by Fitzroy&Finn and includes a specially commissioned essay on the band by Dr Philip Shaw, Senior Lecturer in English at Leicester University. NOTE: The DVD is a region-free double-sided disc with NTSC on one side and PAL on the other. It is fully compatible with all DVD players worldwide."
