Boomkat Product Review:
Les Disques du Crepuscule presents an expanded edition of the long deleted classic Cold Wave debut album by Minimal Man.
"Digitally remastered, this expanded edition of The Shroud Of runs for over 60 minutes. The 5 bonus tracks are taken from rare 7-inch singles Two Little Skeletons and He Who Falls, the latter recorded live at the legendary Deaf Club in San Francisco in September 1979. The collection closes with compilation-only track Shower Sequence.
Formed by Patrick Miller in San Francisco in 1979, the first iteration of Minimal Man cut two albums of dark industrial punk rock. Debut The Shroud Of was originally issued by Subterranean Records in August 1981, when the core of the band comprised a trio of Miller with Andrew Baumer and Lliam Hart.
The album serves up 13 slices of dissonant electronics and ‘anti-music’, together with generous side-orders of isolation, insecurity, terror and black humour. Enjoy! Guest musicians on The Shroud Of include Tuxedomoon alumni Steven Brown and Michael Belfer. Like Tuxedomoon, Miller would subsequently relocate from California to Europe where he continued as a prolific creator of music and visual art."
