A right racket* masquerading as art, this 12″ by MARS has few redeeming features, save the amount it could fetch on E-BAY. For best results invite a friend round, give him or her a microdot, put this on loud, then wait around for a bit. Recorded in 1978 but released in 1980 a little while after Brian Eno took an interest in the No Wave scene in New York. Eno was interested enough to produce the ‘No New York’ LP which contained tracks by The Contortions, Teenage Jesus And The Jerks and D.N.A as well as MARS, that release is the only decent starting point for an introduction to this scene for anyone who gives a rat’s arse…The scene was small, did not last more that a year or two but gave a fair amount of inspiration to artists later on down the line, like Jim Foetus and Nice Cave.
*This release is not that bad if you can handle SPK or Throbbing Gristle!
