Psychick Warriors ov Gaia 1989 EP

Industrial occult experimentalists attend an acid house rave in the late 80s..
“Probably silly but it only then occurred to us that the dance could be a powerful tool too, a way to communicate on a physical level, a way to celebrate life. A niche had opened and this was something we had to explore…”
– With that they joined a fairly large group of industrial or post punk bands that discovered the power of dance music in this period. The results of this revelation here are an oozing sweating mass of techno, originally released as a cassette. It has been lovingly restored and released on vinyl for the first time by Sacred Summits, ready to be unleashed on a dance floor..

    Frank, the version of Exit 23 is not that different – although it has been nicely remastered. The other tracks will be of interest though.

This was a weird year for me and music. It was the first year I didn’t release a record, either on a label of mine or as an artist, since 2009, and honestly I really needed the break. I also formally announced my separation from the old labels and PTA, which has given me time…

Mix: One Night In Chicarlow

It’s been a sporadic year on the mix front. Sporadic = this is only the second one I’ve recorded. Its a b2b mix recorded back in August in the Tr One studio for former ISM guest mixer Jamie Thomson’s radio show, Saturday Manatee. It contains the efforts of myself and Eddie from Tr One and…
