Electro Static Cat - Dysteleology

To be honest, I've never known much of anything about who the people behind the Cat and the Consort are. Or, why they did this nor where they went afterwards. I'm just grateful to be alive at a time when I can hear their work. Maybe they just concentrated on rescuing cats ... I hope so ...

LP released on Freedom In A Vacuum in 1988.

It was 33 years ago, there was no internet, not many people were into it. For me, in 1981 Throbbing Gristle opened my ears, Whitehouse and Merzbow were both the alpha and omega of noise music (no need to listen to others who sounded the same) and Nurse With Wound taught us that labels don't mean anything. Punk rock seemed like toddler music. Compilations like the Elephant Table / Three Minute Symphony / Fix Planet / Deutschland Compilation / Tokyo-Paris / Rising From The Red Sands / Sensationelle were some of the the initial guides. You are teaching history and doing a fine job.

Hi Badgerstump,

My name's Robert Olver and a long time ago I had a project called Freedom In A Vacuum.

I'm a long-time lurker here and rarely comment, but I want to say that I'm glad you find worth in our efforts from all those years ago and how nice it is that you're posting some of it here and saving it from simply falling off into the void and being completely forgotten. It deserves better than that.

Wonderful blog you've got here! Thanks for going to the trouble.

All the best,
