Peter Spoecker’s spectacular 1986 Joshua Tree opus. Otherworldly levels of tape hiss, transcendent field recordings, and some subtle synths all group hugging on a mountaintop.
Alien Success Stories is a bootleg label. This tape is an unauthorized reissue, an edition of 25. These editions are sold at cost+shipping to ensure that Alien Success Stories continues to exist and reproduce these recordings without profit. The goal is to bring these hard-to-find, cassette-based gems to light and provide them to a new audience via their original format. I think a lot about the bootleg and how amazingly important (and complicated and problematic) it’s been in music and beyond. I want to keep these versions on A.S.S. as purely appreciative/homage and low-impact as I can.
