This a very weird record, and that says a lot when we're talking about Chrome! They really go quite experimental here with these songs. Samples, loads of loops and repeated beats, a little bit of vocals from Helios. Not much song structure here, just lovely craziness and insane walls of sound. Lock yourself into a dark room with no windows and crank this one up to get out of your head. When you read about Chrome in the studio literally cutting, taping and splicing the reel to reel, this record is a good indication of all that craziness and creativity going on.

Damon Edge - synths, percussions, tapes, vocals
