Is this a reissue? I didn't know there was ever a reissue done of the lathe cut. Thought there were only ever 20. Says edition of 30. Was there a reissue of another 10?

THESE PURVEYORS OF New Zealand's "free noise" make gloriously distinctive mind altering sounds. A symphony of field recordings merging electrical crackling, motor hum and ozone transmit employing sweeping dissonance. If the universe is expanding, then this is the sound it makes. Arc feedback in a laboratory charting the Periodic table by Tesla's coil. Sometimes late at night I swear my refrigerator motor is humming a stream of rhythmic machine noise bemoaning its servitude existence. SOTE could be that statement, and the deeper you go into this 9-song 73-plus minute journey the more complex the recordings get. No melody. No rock (guitars are unrecognizable as the instruments used to forge these sounds). Primal dirge by scientists of sound.
