The long-awaited, missing 2nd side of "Technology of Tears" recorded at Noise NY by Kramer, this album was written for theatre in 1987 using a host of avian and mammalian voices, snippets of unidentified musical material and electroacoustic noise-sculpting, for a dark and amazing album.

Frith, Fred: Propaganda (Recommended Records)

Label: Recommended Records    
Released in: USA    

"Written for theatre in 1987 using a host of avian and mammalian voices, snippets of unidentified musical material and electroacoustic noise- sculpting, as well as invented and real instruments played by Fred. This was a hard time and the mood is intense, lean and not cheerful, though there are some gruesomely cheery inserts. There's no fat but a lot of meat here."-ReR Megacorp
