review...
Quite possibly the debut of when Nottingham's prime space-cadets really got it together, or to quote what I said in Audion #38 "The latest tape to beam over here via the GPO from Planet X, is another Interstellar Cementmixers excursion weirdly titled MANEQUIN AMBERGINE, an oozing slab of synths and dark soundscaping. Typical of their style, although a bit more melodic than previously, getting closer to some earlier works by Nightcrawlers and Lightwave."
This is the first ever reissue of this classic (previously) cassette only release, now subtly remastered for great vivid sound.

"This group was formed in 1987 in Nottingham by two guys, Dump (Stephen Martin) and Rich (Richard Collins). Both basically play synthesizers and nothing more. Quite experimental Black Space, comparable to Lightwave or Tangerine Dream circa Zeit." from Encyclopedia of Electronic Music - I www.pugachov.ru/eem/i.html
