Wonderful microminimal release on Bremsstrahlung in 2003.
Whilst this is a double CD (in a sweet metal box btw), it only clocks in at forty minutes and eight seconds.
Nothing is wasted! If you give this a chance, this beautiful little thing will get right under your skin and twist you up!

At six o'clock this morning, I got up to get ready to go to work.
The radio told me that whilst I was asleep Junior Murvin had died. It stopped me right in my tracks. When I got to work, my friend coming off a night shift said "have you heard?". I nodded, we bowed our heads and silently walked on.
Junior Murvin possessed one of the finest voices to ever come out of Jamaica ... at the moment, I can only think that Horace Andy could touch him.
The album Police And Thieves is probably what he is most known for by people with only a passing interest. The title track is a commentary on the so-called politics operating in Jamaica (but particularly in Kingston) during the early to late 1970's.
In May 1976, he took himself to Lee Perry's Black Ark studio with new material which included the Police And Thieves lyrics. It speaks directly to the unadulerated politically funded violence that was ubiquitous at the time. An island where the JLP and PNP flooded the poorest areas with huge amounts of guns and ammunition. They created heavily armed warlords to commit unspeakable acts of political violence and many many people were caught in the crossfire. All in the name of democracy!
Mr Smith was in absolutely no doubt that this was sheer criminal activity.
A very brave statement to make in that climate.
He's been a presence in my life for about three decades. His passing has wounded me. Now that I'm back from work, I have the space to think about the man and his words. That's how I'm going to spend the rest of the day ...
Junior Murvin - Police & Thieves
Police and thieves in the streets
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the streets
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
From Genesis to Revelation
The next generation will be, hear me
All the crimes committed day by day
No one trying to stop them in any way
All the peacemakers turned war officers
Hear what I say.....
Police and Thieves
At present, we have collected sixty-one installments of Resonance 104.4 FM's "One Hour As..." program. Sixty-One! That's thanks to YOU, the Bleak Bliss readers who have contributed your own recordings.
Please have a look at our archive. The list of titles - otherwise unpublished works by John Duncan, Zbigniew Karkowski, Steve Brand/Augur, and more - is now alphabetized and easier to sort through, as is the list of titles we have not yet located. As we've learned, there are even more programs out there that we didn't even know existed! It's all quite exciting.
Here we go. Nagata stretches out with a document of two live extra-planetary explorations.

Kazunao Nagata - The World of Electronic Sound 3
The furthest out of all Nagata's solo albums (all of which are further out than most), The World of Electronic Sound 4 contains one massive, brutally cosmic track called "History of Showa".
