Comatonse.000 (a.k.a. Terre Thaemlitz): Comatonse.000.R1 | 12" Vinyl EP | Released 1997 | C.000.R1
Comatonse.000.R1 is a limited re-issue of Terre Thaemlitz' long sold-out first recording Comatonse.000. Terre is a little over attached to this re-issue and went to great pains making sure the sound was right, changing pressing plants and suffering tremendous delays when pressing plates did not match his anal retentive requirements. Comatonse.000.R1 is pressed with audiophile translucent vinyl, comes in a custom 4-color jacket and includes the previously unreleased outro "Pretty Mouth (He's Got One)." So if you are a vinyl fetishist, a Terre-completist, or you missed out the first time around, this may have been the one for you.
Liner notes (a discussion of thematics is in the writings section):
Raw Through a Straw
He is troubled by his oddly displaced excitement
Pretty Mouth (He's Got One)A sudden awkwardness of pause in conversation
rushed to like an inadequate facial expression
or a cheek colliding with open lips
"Emerging from the couds a sixth time
Suddenly finding herself laying with her neck on the damp soil
Recorded at: Meow (Loisaida & Spanish Harlem).
