STORM BUGS - Lets Go Outside and Get it Over
Compiled from the original Snatch Tapes cassettes and vinyl releases, Lets Go Outside and Get it Over features a collection of rare and previously unavailable tracks by Storm Bugs, who between 1978 and 1981 pioneered their own brand of DIY electronics. Some cassettes selling as many as 200 copies, they attained a bit of a cult following, one that has continued after their demise, helped by the fact that their label, Snatch Tapes, also released other artists such as The Lemon Kittens, Scratch Orchestra, John Cage, Claire Thomas & Susan Vezey, Alien Brains, and David Jackman, who Storm Bugs member Philip Sanderson collaborated with on a few occasions. More recently, their music was included on the bootleg compilation LP of D.I.Y. post punk / art school experimentalism titled I Hate The Pop Group", proving they are far from forgotten. Storm Bugs produced a slapstick industrial experimental music that exploited the idiosyncrasies of domestic hi-fi gear. Radios were unceremoniously disemboweled and rewired to emit impromptu squeals and belches, records scratched with a scalpel to produce stunted percussion tracks, while tape loops and primitive analogue synthesisers weaved faltering rhythmic patterns.The CD was compiled by Storm Bugs founding members Philip Sanderson and Steven Ball. Every effort has been made when digitally remastering the tracks to remove the unwanted hiss, distortion and noise added by time while retaining the cherished hiss, distortion and noise integral to the original Storm Bugs sound." - Snatch. Edition of 300 and very highly recommended!!
