Product Description

ALTRES are a band from Dundee, Scotland who originally formed in 1983. They were playing mostly instrumental, improvised electronic music at a time when very few bands, if any, were making this type of music in the UK. The band's influences included Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Philip Glass, Throbbing Gristle, Faust and many others, but their sound is clearly their own. After a few months of recording the band had a lot of material on tape, so they decided to release their first cassette Rise in 1984. Within that year the band managed to release 4 more cassettes: Live at the Tayside Bar, Archive One, Archive 2 and Angel Chords & Devil Chords. The band also appeared on the audio magazine, INKEY$ - No10 cassette. Dark Entries has chosen their favorite tracks from each of the cassettes for this special 7 song compilation album entitled Archives. Each song has been carefully remastered for vinyl by GEORGE HORN at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley directly from the original master tapes. The vinyl comes housed in a neon green jacket featuring the original design from the Rise cassette by the band's MIKE NELSON. Each LP includes a photocopied clear acetate with unreleased photos and notes for each song. Prepare to get lost in the majestic, melancholic and melodic world of Altres..
