THE EQUINOX 3/86

I wanted to change the name of the band to Equinox but the other guys wouldn't hear of it. So that's what I called my next complete LP. We didn't play these songs live, I couldn't get the message accross to the others fast enough. Another metaphysical concept album, mundo atmospheric.

Contents:

Preparation
Left Standing
Too Much Misunderstanding
Hexagonal Monstrosities
The Perseid
Priority List
Everyone Knows
Insurrection
Credular Perception
Valley of Eternal Roses


FOR SOUL 2-6/86

The first in a trilogy of albums centered on sound experimentation using electronics. Although Midi was here I didn't have the money to purchase that stuff so syncopated drums didn't enter into these ideas, more psychedelic fusion to go!

Contents:

Diverse Connection
Capture the Sun
Unsigned and Unintelligible
Change (Another)
The Search for Self
Consortion
Consequences of Confusion
Face up to What You Are
Possessive Perfection
Walking on a Thin Line
Servant to the Savior
Consortium
Come Alike to All

FORBODIE 2/86-7/86

Second in this concept series see my inner feelings for an era of heavy metal gone by yet not forgotten. I have decided to put this one on the recording schedule because I feel with the resurgence of industrial metal this one will be appreciated.

Contents:

Ravishings of War
Passages of Aligtar
Secrecy
Alot of Getting Used To
Shady Characters
Luminary Epiphany
Boiler Maker
Revealing Moments
Third Degree Heart Attack


INCLINATIONS 3/86

I pumped this one up with plenty of delay stack-tracks, machine-like harmonized over-the-top vocals, and lots of screaming guitar. Various musician buddies and I laid the majority of Inclinations to tape with the lush acoustic Send Me Your Love being pushed as the single, a change from most of the other madness on the album. My girlfriend at the time laid the masters on top of my amplifier during practice one night, making sure this recording went down in history!

Contents:

Anguished Love
Send Me Your Love
Wasted Days
River Ride
Love for Hatred
Burn The Stage
One Thousand Nights
Remedial Conflict
Chemical Women
Plastic Love

EUROVIBRATOR 11/86

This one and the next LP were put together and recorded mid to late '86 as I pushed the guys in my band to the limits, and by this time I had changed the name to Equinox and got plenty of bitch about it. While preparing the first Equinox demo I worked solo on Eurovibrator and Extremities using my Tascam 388 8-track I had then-recently bought. On this album I concentrated on different tones and experimentation with polyphonic arrangements via different phrasing and time signatures for each part.

Contents:

Sick of You / Roar of the Missles
Loose Screws
Lunaris
Falling in the Dark
Holding Tracks
New Moon Rising
Conceptional Forces
Communications
Motor Driven
Confined Vibrations
Screw Master


EXTEMITIES 11/86

While heralding the death of sleeze metal, I seperate myself from the known (like I even know what the hell that is) and enjoy recording this atmospheric bastard piece in the confines of my room, late at night, with no clue as to what I'm trying to do. After three days of intense isolation I finished recording and begin mixing, therefore coming to the conclusion that mixdowns are a demon-send from hell. All the way solo on this one with no drums and thick tones. Nice for flashbacks and Halloween.

Contents:

Jazz Opus 12
Dismal Realization A. Adjournment
B. Chaos C. So it is Settled
Solstice
Dance of the Ciliates
Contempt Diversion (Aquaduct)
Lasting Splice for all occasions
Degrees of Convolution
Open Up This is the Police
Station Processing
