Stress - Conspiracy Theory lp (Dark Entries)

$19.99

"STRESS is the duo of ALAN RIDER and PHIL CLARKE from West Midlands,
England formed in 1981.  Alan was editor of Coventry fanzine Adventures
in Reality, and Phil was editor of Nuneaton fanzine  Damn Latin. Stress
combined electronic rhythms and keyboards with bass guitar, vocals,
percussion, and cut-up samples. They created catchy electronic pop songs
that fused accessible & experimental elements with a pointed
lyrical edge in the vein of Cabaret Voltaire, Depeche Mode and Joy
Division. Their first two albums were cassette releases on Alan’s own
Adventures in Reality Recordings label. Help Comes Too Late in 1982
followed by Restraint in 1984.  In July 1985 Stress released The Big
Wheel album and appeared on numerous cassette and vinyl compilations
worldwide. More gigs and press followed and the album took the Number 1
spot in the NME’s electronic charts. Stress split in September 1985 and
re-formed briefly in 1991 to record two tracks. Conspiracy Theory is an
11-song ‘best of’ compilation album featuring tracks from the first two
cassette albums with "The Prayer Clock" from Third Mind Records' Life At
The Top compilation LP and "Tear It Down" from the Compulsory Overtime
compilation LP. Each song has been carefully remastered by George Horn
at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley. Each LP also includes a 16-page booklet
“Stress Edition” of Adventures in Reality fanzine with photos, equipment
list, press cuttings, lyrics and an exclusive Stress badge." - DARK ENTRIES
