I have a 1988 SPIN 1006 on gray marbled vinyl. Anyone know anything about that version?

Surprise surprise. Another brand new reissue that's super warped on one side. Is this the new industry standard? Getting fed up with this.

The audio mastering is superb ...sounds better than all the other versions. That track "She was surprised" would have fit perfectly in Dave Ball's In Strict Tempo album...would not doubt that it was an outtake from those sessions.

Beginning with "Godstar," Psychic TV's tribute to Brian Jones complete with Stonesy guitar licks, Allegory and Self balances surprisingly straight-ahead alternative pop with more experimental tracks using tape cut-ups or extended synthesizer freeforms. P-Orridge makes for quite an ambitious frontman, crooning like Love and Rockets' Daniel Ash on "We Kiss" and producing a series of guttural roars for "Southern Comfort." "She Was Surprised" even bears the first fruits of Psychic TV's fixation with sampladelic acid-house. It may not be characteristic Psychic TV (if such an animal exists), but Allegory and Self may well be the best introduction for beginners.

Psychic Tv goes pop ! It may sound strange but Gen & his friends (mostly Alex Ferguson at the time) try to catch the spirit of the sixties Beach Boys with "being lost" & the very catchy "baby's gone away".Of course, there's the harsh & tribal industrial tracks like "thee dweller" & "southern comfort" but the whole spirit of the record remains pop melodic oriented.Try to listen "we kiss" remembering the girl (or the boy) you fell in love at school & turn yourself into a sea of tears...
