This is the first record I ever purchased. I recognized the distinctive logo from a tape borrowed from a friend (the tape was Blueprints for Modern Technology VOL1 and he had drawn the logo on the case paper). The plodding drums and nasty bassline from the title track still transport me back to that first night, as I listened to it in the dark wondering wtf was making all those sounds.

I was short-circuited because, at that time, I'd heard nothing like it (save for the aforementioned tape). OBear in mind that back then, this type of music wasn't on the mainstream radio or in super hip TV commercials.

I was SO glad when the Classics were released and I could get a new copy devoid of "the scratchies" from overuse.

yep, absolute classic! the agressive bass and industrial techno beat made this track one of the big trend-setters of the house scene in 1990! It's a state of mind...

technarchy is initially what got me hooked. it was some hardcore post industrial techno, and i loved it. it was my favorite and i still find myself enjoying this record. i'll never get sick of it. this is a classic plus 8 record!
