OUT NOW (sham125) Ad Hoc “Corpse” cassette/digital

Out today (in conjunction with Albert’s Basement) – Ad Hoc’s obscure 1980 live cassette Corpse, recorded live at Clifton Hill Community Music Centre.

A startling sister release to the band’s Distance cassette of the same year, it’s hard to imagine a more different follow up than Corpse. In response to a review of the Corpse live performance in New Music #1, the band wrote:

* Not spotlights: two bare bulbs to see with.

* No accusation.

* No pre-recorded tapes: magnetic tape for delays/loops.

* For the particular end or case at hand without consideration or wider application.

Available now digitally and on a limited edition of 100 cassettes with two-tone risograph covers.
