Great obscure release

The band Eleven Pond was from Upstate New York. They released this LP in 1986. It has a wonderful low-tech warm driving synth sound that is infectious. The vocals are haunting and the bass lines remind me off Joy Division. Every track is off the charts fantastic ! I read a review on A VIABLE COMMERCIAL by Goutroy that nails these guys: " I just love the ultra lo-fi, DIY feel of the entire thing: It was self-released (no label, even!) in one pressing of 500 copies and hand-numbered on the front. Both the front and back have silkscreened artwork. It was recorded live to analogue 2-track (hence the lo-fi nature) and self-produced. Almost every song is killer dark post-punk or electronic wave. They seemed to take cues from Echo and the Bunnymen, Joy Division/early New Order, Fad Gadget, and Depeche Mode. Songs like Watching Trees, Tears and Cinnamon, Portugal, Ignorant Father, and Temporal deserve to be heard. I can guarantee that nobody will be disappointed in this one."
I bought LP #293/500 off EBay with the original silkscreened cover and liner notes for $480 and I wasn't disappointed. Eleven Pond "Bas Relief" is a gem in my vinyl collection. I heard from the rumor mill that some old tracks have been dusted off and will be released out of San Francisco! I'm holding my breath.
