It's shocking to me how under-appreciated/under-represented/under-the-radar the bonus tracks on these Mute Swell Maps CDs (circa 1991) are. When I first discovered the Swell Maps I was lucky enough to grab these versions. I immediately dug the hits: "Midget Submarines", "Read About Seymour", "Full Moon in My Pocket", etc. but with repeat listen I kept going back to the bonus tracks. Apparently written for films (that may or may not have been made) and mostly instrumental, these "songs for soundtracks" can best be described as haunted post-punk. Imagine the late-night eeriness of Pere Ubu's Dub Housing with a tinge of Steve Reich or Faust if they were on SST and you'd come close to how these tracks sound. If you're at all interested, grab these Mute 90's Swell Maps CDs (Mute ‎– CD MAPS 1, MUTE 9 61200-2, & Mute ‎– 9 61198-2) while they're still out there at a decent price!
