Rares Material von diesem berhmten amerikanischen Konzeptknstler, der mit Schallplatten arbeitet.. (s. Record without a Cover, LP von 1985)

"Much anticipated release of early material (including unissued stuff) from the NYC master of high-art/lo-destruction vinyl manipulation. Features tracks from 1981 through 1989: early cassette-only material, obscure comp tracks, etc., packaged with detailed annotation from Marclay and liner notes from Thurston Moore. "One Thousand Cycles" is from one of Marclays's infamous recycled records -- cut up and reconfigured vinyl. "Second Coming" & "His Master's Voice" are relatable to hip hop dj-ing, but with Marclay's distinct cut-up aura; "Groove" is a massive looped drone track. The whole thing reeks of historic significance, yet still sounds vital in a contemporary sense as well -- this is the record you have been waiting for." [press release]
