THE DOOR AND THE WINDOW-PERMENANT TRANSIENCE, TAPE, 1979, UK



Willfully threadbare D.I.Y. post punk malarky in the Johan Kugelberg approved mode from this crew who'd also turn up as part of The Reflections (alongside Alternative TV's Mark Perry and The Lemon Kittens' Karl Blake) and the sprawling 49 Americans ensemble (together with David Toop and Steve Beresford), though the results here lurch in the direction of the grotty and improv abstracted far more so than they do on their Detailed Twang LP (which I shared all the way back in '07), with some of the decrepit knees-and-elbows lurches and low wattage synth corrosion here sounding like it could have just as easily been sourced from some lost Geniale Dilettanten NDW tape.

Wow I never thought this one would resurface. Not only was this tape out in the UK, but it was also supposed to have been released for a short while in Australia on Terse Tapes.

p.s., YMT, Jackie-O show was great...gotta work on the dustdevil & crow show idea...will be fun if we can get the whole crew in the same place at the same time.

Hey guys, I saw you were looking for "any obscure synth/experimental/ dark cosmic recording!"

Obscure synth/experimental is sure a fitting description of my new album which has a fair amount of noise influence (both noise rock and harsh noise ala Merzbow and Government Alpha), as well as psychedelia.

You can download the entire album (entitled "Digital Noise Experiments") here if you're interested:

Can't believe I finally got hold of a copy of this! Much appreciated! Don't spose you have 'Music & Movement' tucked away somewhere?

Thank you! I've been looking for this for years now. Been a fan of TDATW for quite some time now, thanks to music of The Shadow Ring leading me down a very strange and wonderful musical path. Kudos!

I remember trading in a record collection at the R&T Exchange in Notting Hill( way back in the day) and the bloke handed back the copy of 'Detailed Twang'. I said "why? what's wrong with it?" and he said "It's shit". I was shocked because it was their policy to accept anything presented to them. I guess there were some records just too bad, even for them.
