Trance Warfare

by Blue Sausage Infant

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    LIMITED EDITION CD reissue of the long out-of-print first cassette by Blue Sausage Infant, originally released in 1989. Fully remastered in 2011 and packaged in a 4-panel wallet, using artwork from the original release. Obscure lo-fi loop-based jams in a dense tossed salad of tape edits... A relic of Washington DC's experimental cassette culture, preserved for the ages.

Re-issue of the debut cassette by Blue Sausage Infant. All material recorded from 1986-89, then given a dadaist cut-up treatment on Christmas Eve 1989. The result was a heady audio collage of one long track per side, condensing three years of work into 43 minutes. Casio-loop primitivism, soaring drones, and hundreds of hand-spliced open-reel tape edits. It was a weird first statement.
