I guess it is the right time to start to believe in god and ask him if he could force someone to make a repress of it in order to break this incredibly shit price!

Another remarkably dramatic shift in style for RHK and from the sounds of it the end of CV as it existed for the previous decade. From the noise experiments and postpunk of early CV, to electro-funk and house of later CV, to acid house of Sweet Exorcist, and now ambient techno that would define RHK's activity in the 90s. This sound would later be perfected on releases including 'Virtual State', 'The Conversation', and 'Intensely Radioactive' before RHK would transform his sound again and again in the late 90s/early 00s with the noisier techno of albums like 'Neurometrik' and 'Loopstatic', the dub of 'Chant to Jah', the ambient of 'Here and Elesewhere', the aural assaults of 'TWAT' and 'Aural Illusions' and...

Standout track for me is 'Low Cool' but it is rather easy to love this whole record.

Opening documentary / interview with gangsters taken from the 1992 documentary called “My Crasy Life” about the Samoan gangs is Long Beach. It’s been uploaded on YT and you can hear what “Low Cool” sampled about 21 minutes into this documentary.

Absolutely amazing album, capturing the post rave comedown to perfection

Damn, the whole Ep is gold nugget! Nothing to waste ;) Special mention for 'Soul Vine' which is a real dancefloor killa

One of the most enjoyable Lp's that they ever released.
Although it has little in common with their early period
of work it demonstrates that Richard H. Kirk has always
been at the forefront of cutting edge contemporary modern
electronic dance music. Brilliantly executed and produced
all they way through.

I don't bother about the video. The music on this wonderful disc speaks for itself. One of my favourites from CV/R. Kirk; and one of my alltime favourites too !

On the sleeve is mentioned that there is also a 60 minutes video available to Plasticity. Well, don't hold your breath, that video does not exist. It was never issued due high production costs. A shame? Maybe. I always wondered how it would be like. We will never know. And then again, the music of Plasticity already is very challenging and visual, it doesn't need images to underline that.
