This largely astonishing minimal synth into experimental electronic compilation was released on Steve Miro's Object Music label, with Miro's deadly Noyes Bros. group alongside Steve Solamar occupying the entirety of side B with the bleary brainwarping disjoint of "Good Question", it's mutating queasy orbits of synthetic slurry held in check (barely) by rinky-dink preset rhythmbox pitter patter. Solamar in solo mode also launches side A with the instrumental gem "Forewarned" a pure slice of early Martin Rev style neon-pulsing minimal synth beauty. 41 Degrees also score with an ingratiating slow boil of subtle extended repetitive post punk that carries on for around ten minutes and leaves room for the albums only (slight) flaw, an insubstantial waft of acoustic treacle from one Roger Blackburn thats easily overlooked on an otherwise solidly outstanding release.

"the passage - pindrop", you might wanna check the write up for it in regards to quality, I haven't listened to it yet though.

Thanks for your kind words re the 41 Degrees track. We went onto to release an album on our own 41 label called Open Heart in 1982.

Just to set the record straight, the Object label was Steve Solomar's label alone. Steve Miro was just one of the artists on the label.
