Notes

Copyright Skam 1997. All tracks are copyright to the respective artists.

Issued in a standard jewel case with 8-page booklet.

A fourteen track celebration featuring music from the Manchester area (hence the title 0161 which is the dialing code for Manchester) released in conjunction with Skam Records and Public.

The artwork was taken from stills from the I.R.A. bombing of Manchester City Centre in 1996. The compilation was released one year to the day from the original blast (June the 15th).

The disc itself features both Skam and V/Vm artists along with other local artists including The Fall who contributed a then exclusive track "Powderkex".

The disc also features a hidden bonus track from Gescom which starts at 3:36 on track 14. The artist and title name for the bonus track was revealed when Skam listed the mp3 version of the CD for sale on their website.

As one would expect from a compilation bearing SKAM's name (even if on a co-release with V/VM), there are many highlights: Gescom's "Two Of" stutters along a wash of percussion and gentle tones, Bola's "01706"'s dizzying rhythyms and jazz-ish melody, Martian Tin Can's "Joking Apart" engages with a solid hip-hop beat and sampled strings, The Renegades' "Destination Tomorrow" sounding like a bizarro-St. Etienne outtake, Datathief's "Night Raid" electro, Yunx' delicate touch and sweetly chiming melody on "Cyclomethicone". This may be one of the few compilations I own where there are truly no skippable tracks. There is enough diversity on the comp to keep you engaged, and a perfect V/VM track as well: short!

A pretty good compilation; the Audiomontage and Datathief tracks are especially good, the first sounds like an out take from the soundtrack to The Thing (in a good, dark, minimal, way) and the datathief is just classic electro brilliance.
