This Heat HEALTH & EFFICIENCY Vinyl Record
Limited 180gm heavyweight vinyl LP pressing housed in an expanded gatefold tip-on jacket. Includes booklet with track notes and archival photos. 24 bit/96 kHz re-master from original analog tapes. First official vinyl reissue in collaboration with original band members Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward. 1980 EP from the post punk trio. The eight-minute title track, remembers Charles Hayward, "was improvised pretty much fully-formed, " and included the sound of the neighboring school's playground and the band rolling bottles around in the gallery space next to their studio. That's where they found the maxi-single's sleeve too - Pete Cobb's blue and white image was on display in the same gallery. As Charles Hayward notes: "Everything seemed to fall into place." On the B-side, the drone for "Graphic/Varispeed" came from the song "24 Track Loop" on the first album, albeit manipulated, slowed down and sped up. "In the process, we realized that we liked the morphing of the sound from one state to another as the vari-speed combed the sound across the equalization, like a microscope. So we recorded the process itself, which is what you hear here, "says Hayward. The intention was for the single to be able to be played at 33, 45 or 78 RPM - which you're welcome to do with this reissue, too.
