The good news is that this is a C75 tape released on the mighty Gnarled Forest last year.
The even better news is that Astromason is Hiroshi Hasegawa (who obviously gives you the Astro) and BSBC collaborator and all round nice guy Mason Jones (who obviously gives you the...ahh, you're ahead of me). BSBC also have the additional power of Crystal Perez as if Stan and Wm. weren't enough for you.
The bad news is that this was the 45th and final release on GF. Stan is hard at work (a likely story) and Mr Rage has recently become a father so there are plenty of other things to concentrate on! Although I mourn the death of a great label, BSBC are still active and there will be more to come...and I'll keep you posted...
And you can file this one under "because I can..." ...
Ptôse - Hand-made Electronics
Ptôse were/are a very influential French outfit that floated somewhere between The Normal and The Residents. Since I found out that there is a new addition to the Rage household, I can't get the first track of this 1983 tape out of my head!
Mr Rage used to stop by here ... if you still do, the first track is for you!
