the Genetic Tape

Artist:- David M Allen
THE GENETIC TAPES are literally The First Electronic Records from Martin Rushent's Genetic Studios, a Legendary Studio that produced the the sound of the Human League's DARE album. David M Allen is the Engineer who made several technical breakthroughs whilst working as assistant to the late Martin Rushent. He went to to become a successful producer in his own right making Many Great Records for the Cure and The Mission amongst many others. The Genetic Tapes are a stunning discovery that will help us re-appraise Martins legacy and David's contribution to that important period of musical upheaval in the UK. With Martin Rushent now sadly dead and his groundbreaking studio razed to the ground, this tape still has a brave new world feel to it. From the sparseness of "You and I" to the post-punk disco of "Drowning in the Wave of Dub-Life" and the crazy experiment of "The Passion of Father Bernard". It's the sound of a man making music with long lines of numeric computer code and something that looks like an analogue telephone exchange. Bach struggling with a Babbage computer.

EP At The End Of Term

Lovingly restored from a recently discovered lost Master Tape, this is an example of The Members in 1979 at the top of their game. At The End of term was supposed to be the Band's punk follow up to Sound of the Suburbs but because of time restrictions (the record was not finished in time for release at the end of term. It was shelved. Incredibly this record was laguishing in a Surrey garage for 35 years before a chance meeting at a car boot sale brought this gem to light. The other three tracks featured are the earlier versions of tracks featured on the Members Second album . Featuring Nick Tesco, Adrian Lillywhite Nigel Bennett Chris Payne and JC Carroll. They burn with a raw urgency that was not acheived on the early Members recording and are quite simply the best record of that period of The Members.
