review...
A bizarre and unique old solo by Steve, a concept album inspired by the apocalyptic film "Threads". Dark layers of electronics strongly feature, thick wedges of white noise, voices and doomy percussive piano stabs. Elements of Throbbing Gristle "Heathen Earth" and Art Zoyd come to mind, as well as Conrad Schnitzler and Peter Frohmader. The concoction though is unique. Gloomy, but fascinating.
