Negativland
Seeland Records

The debut album from this central California noise combo is a far cry from their cut-and-paste latter-day efforts. Here they eschew anti-commercialist culture jamming in favor of noisy bedroom noodling with elements of audio verité, tape manipulation and homey ambiances. At times they sound like they’ve been listening to Krautrock such as Faust, Kraftwerk or their namesake NEU! Released in 1980, each record was wrapped in an individually packaged sleeve (with wonderfully out-of-date wallpaper and cookbook artwork attached ) and all tracks are simply titled 01, 02, 03, etc…
It’s hard to believe that this is from the band that would later become such big media prevaricators and free culture activists.
