attrition - demonstro: 1982 - 1985 (cd)


ARTIST // attrition
LABEL // peripheral minimal (uk)
CAT // pm005cd


CD with 8-page booklet, limited to 300 copies. A definitive collection of 20 of the rarest ATTRITION songs… With previously unreleased tracks, demos and alternate versions. So many experiments with analogue synths, drum machines, tape loop, bass guitar and effects...

Many of these tracks were released on cassette compilations at the time … and 2 of them on our very first vinyl release... a 2 track flexi disc with Adventures in reality fanzine in 82... But there were a lot of tracks that never did get released back then... some were demos, some just never found a home at the time...

For the last 30 years i have been carrying boxes of those cassettes around with me as i travelled around the UK, and Holland briefly... I've spent a lot of time selecting the best and cleaning them up in my studio from the old cassette mixes, and in some cases from the original 4 track tapes...

It's time to put these to bed.... i hope you enjoy this little slice of our life.... " -Martin Bowes, Coventry, England, 2014
