Another collection thisweek from a brainwashed artist, this mid-priced NWW release collectsvarious collaborative efforts from 1980 - 1999.
Subtitled, "FavouriteMoments of Mutual Ecstasy," this collection features collaborationswith Diana Rogerson (Crystal Belle Schrodd), Tony Wakeford (SolInvictus), Legendary Pink Dots, Foetus, Current 93, William Bennet, theInflatable Sideshow, Aranos, Chris Wallis/Peat Bog and Tiny Tim. It's a2 CD set of material, most of which can be found on previous NWWreleases. High points include the Rogerson tracks which were originallyomitted from the CD release of Crystal Belle Schrodd as well as theTiny Tim track which was only available previously on an entire CD ofTiny Tim and his ukelele ditties. Unfortunately most of this has had tobe edited. Stereolab's "Simple Headphone Mind" was a 30-minute two partsingle in its original form, here it's reduced to a measly 10 minuteexcerpt. Coil's "How to Destroy Angels II" and "The Dead Side of theMoon" with David Tibet have also been reduced to about 10 minutes.Thankfully it comes at a reduced price and provides for a greatintroduction to NWW for the beginner along with some of the besthighlights from the last 20 years.
