Would be interested in trading my original copy of Sperm's "Shh" LP on O Records for a copy of the original "AMMMusic" by AMM. We can talk about a deal (LP/LP - LP/LP+$?) if interested. sl: VG+ lp: VG (surface noise during quiet parts - inner sleeve scuffs have dulled the shine over the years - no skips and barely a pop in sight).

This is a very unique record.It deals with sound rather than melodie,there are no traditional rules of harmony here.It begins with a soft tone almost hypnotic.The sound builds as you become aware of texture and the sound spectrum speads into clusters of voices.If you like Nurse with Wound Zoviet France or 20th century avant garde you will like this record.My friend Brian descibes it as Finnish weirdo classic.
