Artist: GATELY, KATIE
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: Public Information
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"Public Information search the West Coast skies to Los Angeles, to find Katie Gately, still in the throes of academe, playing at new pop forms. This record in July bloom is a bold and exciting taster of what is in store, around the corner. Six tracks of frightening ambition. A prime distillation in computer-music-pop. More alarming - this is her debut release, she has been making organized sound for just over a year. Screech, crumble, gurgle, crack: the opening track Ice a storm of cluster tones and sequenced-bursts sets the standard. Then, to a potential Top ten smasher gone mutant. Last Day is the first time we hear Katies voice, first looped and torn, then glowing, euphoric and beaming from deep inside a crashing-banging-beat system. Similar patterns follow across this half-dozen. Fractured vocalizations, bittersweet harmonies, freaked alien voices all living, breathing in deep fried motherboards of acute computer programming and field sound." -Public Information.

Title: Tomorrows Achievements: Parry Music Library 1976-86
Format: LP
Label: Public Information
Country: UK
Price: $25.00
"This is Tomorrows Achievements, an exclusive Public Information foray into the Canadian Library institution, Parry Music. With access granted by founder John Parry, Public Information have selected twenty-five of their favorite electronic tracks, an early autumn heat-wave of perfect melody. Parry Music was founded in 1974 in Toronto by John Parry and Chris Stone. John was formerly a manager of revered UK library Chappell Music and Chris was a Canadian music consultant; both brought some familiar musicians to the table. Johnny Hawksworth, Robin Artus, Paul Kass, Nino Nardini (close allies with Roger Roger) are on board Tomorrows Achievements, as well as a little known Canadian Library musician who features heavily, Harry Forbes. Forbes is the real driving force of P.I.s Parry-love; a master of imminent, hummable melody and sublime synth miniatures baked in sweetness. Elsewhere, the other players work in proto-Balearic house, groovy electronic disco, spooked choral drone, freaked-modular scorch, and weird Radiophonic bleep. These are the soundtracks to movie car chases never known, lost kids TV shows never realized, radio-ads never broadcast, music to make your ears sing for more. A compilation put together piece by piece at Public Information HQ, lovingly re-mastered by Rashad at D&M, with artwork by Jack Featherstone." - Public Information.
