"Galen Herod is one of the pioneers of-american-cassette-culture synthesist-artists and During 1979 and 1982 he produced several outstanding and creative electronic Tape-Releases which he distributed either via Eurock or by himself in the Phoenix-Area. His very early Tape-Works are dominated by abstract, austere, experimental electronics in the vein of Conrad Schnitzler using tape loops and completely homemade synth-equipment: oscillators, filters and sequencers designed and built by his friend Gary Dukarich.
In late 1981 he meet Greg Horn and both formed the successful minimal-synth-Pop Band TONE SET. This 2Lp-Set includes selections from his first three official self-released Tapes from 1979 and 1980 called ‚Xom’ ‚Gulag’ ‚Limacon’."
