Duff Egan commented on Stephen Robert Rook Thompson's blog post UNUNE Album ..... had to cut it short for bandcamp,onelongtrack :)
"Good discussion here!  Also remember to encode to MP3 or FLAC from a 24bit PCM WAV or AIFF, for best results.  Bandcamp allows you to upload 24bit Flac and I'm not sure why it's not done more often.  "

"Well this is dialing back the clock...  reminds me slightly of Cabaret Voltaire - live a the YMCA 1979 - although a little harsher - but the tape loops and noise is there.  A little Coil in there as well."

Isn't gigging fun?!?!  I've been in so many similar situations...   in the mid-80's used to play this bar that had the world's smallest stage and it was when I played synths instead of bass - so I had to set up on the floor (and it was a tall stage!  my head was at everyone else's knees.)   So funny.

Dark Valentine...  reminds me of Sisters of Mercy - ish sort of.  Was the drummer taking a break?  (or stage set for multiple bands?)
