Living, as we do now, with the 8th or 9th generaton of music production software it is hard to realise how unintuitive those machines were. However,they had a geeky computer program logic about them that appealed to the sort of person that enjoyed writing programs in Basic for the ZX81. With Martin Rushent now sadly dead and his groundbreaking studio razed to the ground, this tape still has a brave new world feel to it. From the sparseness of "You and I" to the post-punk disco of "Drowning in the Wave of Dub- Life" and the crazy experiment of "The Passion of Father Bernard". It's the sound of a man making music with long lines of numeric computer code and something that looks like an analogue telephone exchange. Bach struggling with a Babbage computer.
Since that time David M.Allen has worked with band such as the Cure,The Sisters of Mercy, Gianna Nannini, Neneh Cherry, The Members and many others and has recently returned from Brazil having completed a new Mission album which will no doubt delight millions of Mission fans all over the world. Meanwhile his "rst solo album is just being released 32 years late.
