A top notch left field compendium covering a wide swath of experimental sonic praxis from the era, from the passel of minimal synth poppers that emerged during this period via the post-industrial music network ala X-Ray Pop, Algebra Suicide and No Unauthorized to baleful post-industrialism from Maria Zerfall, Null and Maybe Mental and peachy keen bursts of inscrutable otherness from the likes of H.N.A.S. and Jean Luc Charlier Et Son Orchestre, with a particularly choice bit coming from the collaboration of Controlled Bleeding with Art Barbeque, which sounds like Caroliner caught in the gears of Esplendor Geometrico's heavy machinery, though thanks but no thanks to the otherwise fab John Oswald for his slowed down tape of pig slaughter...

Thanks for this one! The full title of the H.N.A.S.-track is "ich bin ja besser als ich dachte" (seems I'm better than I thought), it is included on the cd-reissue of "The book of Dingenskirchen" with the full title.

I recall trotting out the phrase 'marshmallowy bloop balloons' in an old review I wrote about his CD "Folding Pineapple" (coming soon) to try to characterize the peculiar faded pastel weirdity of Thomsen's woozy tunes and this atmosphere dominates much of the proceedings here to be sure, but this particular CD of Thomsen's (the first of many I'll be posting) has a specific ace in the hole absent from his other recordings that made this seem like an optimal point of entry for the uninitiated... like some cough syrup-induced Krofft Superstars fever dream, this is music for sleestak dance parties.

re: steve thomsen 'restrospective 2 & 3', now 18 comments & countless re-up requests strong:

it does appear that z-share is now crapping out. Yikes! I'll get this and the handful of other titles I've used z-share for re-upped soon using sharebee

Mutant Sounds has always been one of my regular stops. It delivers the goods as very few can.
