ZENERIK - YENEƧIS (Positive/Negative 001) CD NEW £11.00 - Extraordinary find! - special import from Greece - great experimental fusion, remarkably with many Krauty elements, gets very close to Annexus Quam (so much so you'd believe one CD cut was a live rendition of an "Osmose" track) and the likes of Exmagma, Kollektiv, and some hints of Embryo too. Very limited supply, so don't miss it! (one copy on LP available too)

STEVE MOORE - THE THRESHOLD OF LIBERTY: ELECTROACOUSTIC SURREALISM 1982-84 You may recall Steve Moore (no, not the Zombi guy) from his remarkable contributions to ReR Quarterly releases, and his extraordinary "A Quite Gathering" LP (shamefully never reissued on CD as yet). Well, before that, this enterprising surrealist electroacoustic composer released a remarkable cassette, originally known as "Return Of The Poet" and then revised slightly a few years later as "The Threshold Of Liberty". This limited numbered CDR release collects all the latter, adding the 3 different tracks from the first version, for the first complete edition. Extraordinary soundscaping art, with a good deal of "plunderphonics" and such-like. Elements of Christian Marclay, early When, Francois Bayle, Pierre Henry, Nurse With Wound and Stockhausen can be heard, yet his style is elusive and unique. Tha's dow to his surrealist influences, hence the title and my retake on the same named Magritte painting as the cover art!
