Selections from the 2 cassette release, all wrapped-up
onto a CDR.
Acclaimed compilation of original specially commissioned
material covering the unique range of music from the 80s experimental
underground. Originally issued as a 2 cassette set (A: melodic synth and
cosmic music, B: experimental synths and electronics, C: rock and new-wave
underground, D: avant-garde and industrial).
Originally planned as a numbered
edition of 500 copies, only 200 or so were actually issued as such. Some were
also sold as single cassettes in regular cases (approx. 20 of each). Excess
covers/stickers have been used for the various cassette and CD-R releases
(this and the "Escape From The cage" series).
The CD-R version collects all the
(unavailable elsewhere) material that we still have the licence for on 1
disc, remastered from the original tapes.
cover art was by the late Peter Harrison, and the inspiration for the title
too, which was a deliberate misquote of “I am a cage, in search of a bird” by
Franz Kafka, and a dedication to the paintings "The Therapist" 1937
by Rene Magritte and "Bird Cage" by Slavador Dali.
