How minimal can you get? #46

Base
“One-man band founded by former Essential Logic bass player Mark Turner. As Base he made his vinyl debut with these three experimental tracks recorded at the end of 1979 and released on February 22, 1980, on his own indie label. A worthy D.I.Y. 7" which includes 'Violent Death' and 'Frenchmen' – two remarkable electronic sketches in the vein of early Human League – and the tortured low-fi 'One-Way Girl ' [available on Messthetics #6] , with echoed vocals and noise-guitar. Picture sleeve is dated 1979; recorded in mono; all copies include an insert.” Mario Panciera
