**4CD boxset includes posters, inserts and defaced passport photo** Perhaps one for the hardiest industrial fiends, but an important collection nonetheless - 'Mutation For A Continuity' compiles the four tapes made by Maurizio Bianchi and given out to friends prior to the birth of his infamous, decadent M.B. output. As to be expected, it's f**king unfriendly and primal, mostly swamped in tape saturation to the point of oblivion and probably best recommended for use in sado masochistic rituals or your morning commute to the torture chamber. "Before starting the complex and compelling production of many records and tapes in the early eighties under the M.B. trademark, Maurizio Bianchi was documenting the new music scene writing essays and reviews for independent magazines. It was August 1979 in Milan, Italy and his sound was strengthening when he felt the time had come to prove his desire for something new. So he started his first solo project, under the name Sacher-Pelz. He assembled a concrete equipment -- the endurance of M.B. had started. During the following few months four C60 magnetic tapes were created 'Cainus' (August/September 1979), 'Venus' (October/November 1979), 'Cease to Exist' (December 1979/January 1980) and 'Velours' (February/March 1980), a couple of copies for friends, never getting an official distribution. Surely a very private moment but still the first and only production at that time in Italy to go beyond the TG movement, the direct reference."
