Carrying on with shares from our own back catalog, this 10" was our contribution to the Lactamase series of 10" vinyls on Beta-Lactam Ring and captures the same extended line-up of VDO heard on some of our more overtly kosmiche-directed efforts of the time like Zyzzybaloubah and Quicksand, with Doug Ferguson (Yeti/Ohm), David Fargason (Liquid Sound Company), Jim Edgerton (Burnin' Rain, Fish Eye Lens) and saxophonist Scott Lindsay all present for these sessions.

There's a particular patina to these recordings, a darkly queered and melancholic atmosphere specific to only this recording of ours. The PR for this release at the time it came out was name-checking Bowie/Eno instrumentals, Goblin and Van Der Graaf Generator and that still seems apt enough on some level, though it's all been filter-fucked and structurally skewed as per VDO's usual peccadillos.

Thanks for this! One of my very favorites.
(Will VDO+C's "Suspension" ever make an appearance here?)

Looking forward to hearing more
educational sounds.

Thank you for all of your
time and work on my musical

I'm in Atlanta and It was a balmy
72 degrees today - might be tough on the farmers without a real winter.

I am hoping that your divshare problems have improved.
