A: Compulsion (Machine Run)  5:10
B1: Pulsations 1 (Human Run)  4:59
B2: Pulsations 2 (Human Run)  5:46

メタルパーカッション(笑。流行ったなあ)。そんな彼らの1st Single。彼らのベストは、1984年南ウェールズでの炭鉱ストに関する慈善コンサート「FUEL TO FIGHT」での炭鉱夫達の聖歌隊と録音したアルバム「Shouder To Shoulder」があるが、此れが非常に良い。(聖歌隊のトラックが針飛びして断念した。)以外にもCabsと繋がりが有った様で、プロデュースとジャケが当時のCabsメンバー。

A3: Bonus Bambi Groove  0:27
B1: XP (I Love You Mix)  5:54
      Written by Mark Mothersbaugh, Robert Williams
B2: Bonus Whistle Groove  3:16

Herbie Hancock "Wiggle Waggle"のサンプリングで如何にもテイ・トウワな仕上がりのタイトル曲だが、B1は此れと比べるとらしくないMark MothersbaughとRobert Williams。当時全く興味無かったんだが今となっては聴ける。つーかなんで持ってるんだろ。此れじゃなくてアトムのエッチング盤が欲しかったな。

B6: Inside Out
B7: Carnis Vale

NON: Boyd Riceはミュージシャンの他、The Church Of Satanの司祭や俳優と、多才なのか自己顕示欲が強いだけなのか不明だが、此のジャンルでは珍しい個性である。彼の盤は此れのみ所有しているが、そんな人となりに反して音はストレートなノイズで聴きやすくあまり個性が無い。往々にしてノイズミュージシャンはストイックなのだが、其れが逆に凡庸に成りがちな場合も多い。やはり"Merzbow"や"Whitehouse"は別格だな。

恐らくは彼ら初の12inch Single。Mixは此の頃多忙だったFrancois K。当時のオレはAdrian Belewの居るKCなど見向きもしなかったが。

B3: A Heart That Breaks In No Time Or Place

現代のロック及びポップミュージックの範疇において、ノイズミュージックに関しては日本が礎を創ったと考えるのだが、もう存在しないオーストラリア出身の彼らもまた、今だ最高峰のバンドの一つである。"Throbbing Gristle"は愛聴していたが、そのIndustrial Recordsから再発されたシングル(A3, A5)に驚愕し、カセットテープでリリースされたライヴでノックアウトされ、さらに其れ以上ラディカルなアプローチの"Whitehouse"アンビエントでジャケットアートワークが素晴らしい"Zoviet France"等、数々のノイズミュージックに心酔していった。(因みにメールアートというアートスタイルと平行してカセットテープのリリースが多かったので、そのほとんどが把握出来なかったが。)SPKはその後メジャーへ移行、音楽的にもポップな方向にシフトした事でノイズファンからブーイングを浴びたが、オレは12 inch Singleを良く聴いていた。流石に今はハーシュノイズを聴こうとは滅多に思わないが、初期のシングルを含む此のコンピレーションのA面は度々愛聴している。
