*Excerpts from the album. Now available at Experimedia.net.* *recorded at Oberlin Conservatory, 1977* Sandwell District's Rrose launches a new label with a follow up to "Motormouth Variations," last year's unlikely collaboration with
legendary improviser and synthesizer pioneer Bob Ostertag (named one of 2011's top 50 albums by The Wire magazine).
For the debut release on Eaux, Rrose searched through Ostertag's cassette archives to discover a lost gem of studio
improvisation from 1977. "The Surgeon General" sees the barely post-teen Bob Ostertag exploring feedback techniques with
an early Buchla modular synthesizer, tape delay, flute and violin. The results are uncharacteristically moody, spacious, and
well ahead of their time. On the flip, Rrose provides two new revisions. "No Child Left Behind" is a noisy and hypnotic acid-laden
beast designed for dancefloor damage, while "Her Insides Laid Bare" takes the original into murky subaquatic territory.
Look for much more to come from Rrose and Eaux in the coming months.
